After a positive start away from home, Sevilla proceed to take on Andalusian rivals Granada. It was a flawless performance that saw us grab all 3 points at the RCDE Stadium.
Our standout player was undoubtedly Sergio Reguilón. Having a complementary fullback opposite of Navas to have just as much explosiveness really added a new dimension to our attack.
The same squad is named for Matchday 2, with the only addition being Banega returning from suspension. Still the pertinent issue remains with Dabbur, who misses out again, and is seemingly on his way out. With Corchia gone as well, Pozo still hasn’t been called up to cover for RB.
Granada were the only side to have defeated us in pre-season. But not just that, Los Cármenes is a ground where we usually struggle, as we have 1 win from the last 5 visits there in La Liga. After Granada’s goal-fest last week, our backline will need to watch for Roberto Soldado and the aptly named Antonio Puertas. If our defence has another resolute showing, we should expect to see success on the road again.
