Sevilla won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 2-1 La Liga defeat in their last game at the hands of Real Sociedad.
In that game, Sevilla managed 51% possession and 8 shots on goal with 2 of them on target. For Sevilla, the goalscorers were Marko Dmitrović (3' Own goal) and Youssef En-Nesyri (60'). Real Sociedad got 11 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. Umar Sadiq (22') scored for Real Sociedad.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games that Sevilla have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Sevilla have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 8 goals along the way.
PSV Eindhoven head into the meeting following a 0-3 Eredivisie win against FC Twente in their most recent fixture.
For PSV Eindhoven, the goals were scored by Joey Veerman (45') and Johan Bakayoko (82'). Robin Pröpper (49' Own goal) was the scorer for FC Twente.
With their forward play coming to the fore of late, PSV Eindhoven have helped themselves to a plethora of goals in their past six encounters (20 to be precise). That’s given them an impressive mean average of 3.33 goals scored per game over this period of time. We will have to see if that trend can be continued on here.

Team News: Sevilla
Boubakary Soumaré (Bruise on ankle), Erik Lamela (Muscle injury), Marcão (Muscle injury), Suso (Muscle injury), Ørjan Nyland (Hip problems) and Loïc Badé (Muscle injury) won’t be playing for Sevilla boss Diego Alonso.
In our view, Sevillistas should kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system this time featuring Marko Dmitrovic, Jesus Navas, Nemanja Gudelj, Sergio Ramos, Adria Pedrosa, Fernando, Boubakary Soumare, Lucas Ocampos, Ivan Rakitic, Oliver Torres and Youssef En-Nesyri.
Team News: PSV Eindhoven
PSV Eindhoven manager Peter Bosz has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Armel Bella-Kotchap (Shoulder injury), Mauro Júnior (Knee injury) and Armando Obispo (Knee injury) will miss out on this game.
We reckon that Rood-witten seem likely to begin the game with a 4-3-3 formation, starting Walter Benitez, Jordan Teze, Andre Ramalho Silva, Olivier Boscagli, Sergino Dest, Jerdy Schouten, Malik Tillman, Joey Veerman, Johan Bakayoko, Luuk de Jong and Hirving Lozano.
PSV Eindhoven and Sevilla should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
Little in this one, and it’s almost too close to call. We’re therefore anticipating a 1-1 score draw at the conclusion of the game.
