Sevilla awaiting Manchester City in 4th round of Champions league group stage. After three rounds Sevilla occupies 3rd position at the table in group D, behind Juventus and Manchester City. They achieved only one victory, in first round against Borussia Monchengladbach, after that they were defeated by Juventus on the road, and two weeks ago they also suffered defeat against Manchester City, also on the road. That's why Sevilla now have imperative to win here and try to stay in race for knockout phase. For sure it won't be easy against one of the strongest teams from England, they must play here on very high level and try to take some points with support of their fans. Sevilla had poor start of this season, they are currently at 11th position in Spanish Primera, but they are now coming here after two victories, one draw and most recently in the last round suffered defeat against Villarreal on the road. After very successful previous season where Sevilla won Europa league, and in Spain ended at fifth position at the table, they now seems out of track and must improve their form to try to repeat last seasons results. Goalkeeper Beto, defenders Nico Pareja and Daniel Carrico are still out of action due to injuries while appearance of midfielder Ever Banega is in doubt due to minor injury.
Manchester City on the other hand are currently at second position in group D in Champions league group stage, with one point less than first placed Juventus. Manchester City had a perfect start of the new campaign, they won in first five rounds in Premier league, but then after defeat in first round of Champions league group stage against Juventus at home team went out of the track, and suffered two defeats in Premier league against West Ham and Tottenham. But they managed to get back on the track and now they achieved six victories and one draw in last seven matches, team in in very good form and they are coming here after victory in previous round in Premier league against Norwich at home. Manchester City coming here without pressure, they have no imperative to win and a draw would satisfy them. Their coach will for sure set up more defensive tactics for this match and try to exploit opportunities from counter attacks. Defender Pablo Zabaleta, attacking midfielders Samir Nasri, David Silva and forward Sergio Aguero will miss this match due to injuries, while defender Gael Clichy and defensive midfielder Fabian Delph aren't fully recovered from their injuries.
Sevilla didn't impressed with their performances in this campaign but they improving their form, now they must go for a victory and try to stay in battle for knockout stage of the Champions league, while Manchester City are favorites here, they are in great form and their main goal here is to avoid defeat, I expect very good match, and Manchester City are having more chances to win here.
