El Sadar isn’t amongst the big 5 stadiums we struggle at, but not many visitors manage to leave with 3 points. Even the Big 3 can often attest to that. Athletic Club only managed to stop their 31-match unbeaten run 2 weeks ago. This fortress might as well be another San Mamés.
After a few injury concerns this week, Fernando & Navas make the trip to Pamplona. However, Nolito is the only casualty, while Escudero & Rony Lopes have been left off completely. Ocampos serves the 2nd of his 3-match ban.
Projected XI: Vaclík; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Reguilón; Gudelj, Jordán, Banega; Munir, De Jong, Óliver.
Who knows what might happen when you’re up against the golazo machine that is Chimy Ávila. Fortunately, Sevilla boasts one of the league’s best defences, as well as the best away record. It has “tight, scrappy affair” written all over it. Another 1-0 result on the cards?
¡Vamos mi Sevilla!
