Los Sevillanos are on a five-game winning run in the Spanish top flight, with the team clinching their spot in the Champions League thanks to a 2-1 win over Granada in the Andalusian derby. The hosts have won this place in nine of their last ten La Liga matches, losing only to FC Barcelona. Nine wins from their previous 11 home games in the LaLiga suggest that Sevilla are a force to be reckoned with on their own pitch, and they need to keep on winning in order to maintain their title bid. Sevilla has been in stellar form since exiting the Champions League, with the current Europa League holders keeping themselves in the title race conversation, albeit as firm outsiders. Nesyri has notched 23 goals across all competitions, while he has also racked up 21 goals in 50 games for Sevilla in La Liga. Nemanja Gudelj s a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Lucas Ocampos enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
