In that match, Sevilla managed 70% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Sevilla was Óscar (45'). Linares got 8 attempts on goal with 5 on target.
Fewer than three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the past 6 fixtures where Sevilla have taken part. Regarding the goal split in that period, opposition teams scored a total of 2 and Sevillistas got themselves 10. We will just have to see whether or not that trend can be sustained here.

Team News: Sevilla
Tomas Vaclík (Knee Problems) and Sergio Escudero (Elbow Injury) won’t be available for Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui.
Team News: Real Sociedad
Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil has some current player fitness concerns. Mikel Oyarzabal (Muscle Injury), Asier Illarramendi (Tear in the abductor muscle), Luca Sangalli (Knee Injury) and David Silva (Muscle Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
Real Sociedad may well find it hard to break down this Sevilla lineup who should manage to score & go ahead.
Therefore, we predict a very competitive game with a 1-0 victory for Sevilla at the end of this game.
It should be a good one.
