Sevilla awaiting Espanyol in 17th round of Spanish Primera. Sevilla had a pretty bad start of this season but now they are coming here after seven matches without defeat, five victories and two draws in all competitions. They can be satisfied with their current results after very bad start, currently are at 8th position at the table in Primera, after six rounds in Champions league group stage managed to end at third position in group D and reach knockout stage in the Europa league, while in Spanish Cup progressed into 1/8 finals. Sevilla finally found their form and if they continue in the same manner for sure will have another successful season. In previous round Sevilla divided points with Betis on the road after goalless draw and now will for sure go for a victory and try to at least retain their current position.They suffered only three defeats at home in this campaign, two in Primera and one in Champions league and now will for sure give their best to earn all three points. Sevilla is favorite here and I believe that they are capable to achieve another victory at home and continue with series of good results. Goalkeeper Beto, defenders Nico Pareja and Marco Andreoli will miss this match due to injuries while defensive midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak is suspended.
Espanyol meanwhile occupies 12th position at the table, they are struggling to find their form in this campaign and now coming to this match after narrow victory over Las Palmas at home in previous round of Primera. So far they achieved six victories, got two draws and suffered 8 defeats. They didn't impressed with their attacking skills neither with defensive, so far score 16 goals while conceded 26. They now have very hard task to achieve positive outcome against very strong and confident opponent, Espanyol has negative record in duels against Sevilla, in last five matches they suffered four defeats and achieved only one victory and it will be very hard to improve that score. They ended previous season at 10th position and for sure would be satisfied to repeat that result, especially because they are playing pretty bad on the road, in last four away games they suffered four defeats against even weaker opponents. All in all Espanyol can be satisfied with their results but it will be very hard to earn some points in this match. Defensive midfielder Pape Diop is suspended while midfielder Victor Sanchez and defender Anaitz Arbilla having problems with slight injuries and their appearances are in doubt.
Sevilla finally seems like a team which is capable to achieve good results, they improved their shape after really bad start of the season and now will for sure go for another victory in front of their fans, while Espanyol is struggling to find their form in this season and now are facing with very unpleasant hosts, I believe that Sevilla will achieve convincing victory here.
