After winning four games in a row in the Spanish top flight, Sevilla fell into the traps of Espanyol last time out. They will be looking to bounce back to their previous form when they host Villarreal at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the 21st round of the Spanish La Liga.
The Hosts To Bounce Back
The home side have been impressive ever since the start of the season. Sevilla FC have collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Espanyol away from home where they lost 3-1.
Sevilla FC are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 42 points from 13 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. The team scored 42 goals and conceded 28 since the start of the season.
Nico Pareja is suspended after being sent off early on against Espanyol last time out in La Liga. Clement Lenglet should be drafted in at the heart of the back four as a result, while Sergio Escudero has a knock.
Villarreal Searching For Consistency
The visitors have lost only one game in their last five La Liga competitions. The team however, lacks consistency since the start of the season. Villarreal have collected a total of 8 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Granada CF at home where they won 2-0.
Villarreal are currently sitting in the 6th place in the league table. They have 34 points from 9 wins, 7 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 28 goals and conceded 14 since the start of the season.
Jaume Costa returns from suspension and should slot straight back in at left-back for the away side. Alvaro Gonzalez is absent due to a ban, with Mateo Musacchio still injured, which should see Daniele Bonera get a rare start at centre-back.
Head To Head
Sevilla FC have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last game between the two teams was in August 2016 when it finished goalless.
