SEVILLA FC (5th) vs. RCD ESPANYOL (20th)
Sunday, February 16th, 2020
0600 EST / 1200 CET / 2230 AEST
European football returns this week for both teams, however their respective positions in the league table will demand more attention be given to their performances on home soil.
Óliver misses out again through injury, as Rony Lopes & Carriço were left off completely from this 19-man matchday squad.
Projected XI: Vaclík; Navas, Kounde, Diego Carlos, Reguilón; Fernando, Jordán, Banega; Suso, En-Nesyri, Ocampos.
Despite Espanyol travelling to the RSP without R.D.T., Sevilla’s toughest opponent will be themselves. A lot of the team’s problems have been self-generated, with points being dropped in very winnable games. Not only have the results suffered, but no recognizable style of play could be discerned. With all the good work from earlier this season being undone, Lopetegui needs a turn of events to ward off talks of an Unai Emery return.
