ℹ️ Team News: Sevilla
The Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this game owing to a completely healthy squad ready to go.
It looks as if Sevillistas will possibly line up in a 4-2-3-1 system in the match, beginning the first half with Yassine Bounou, Jesus Navas, Nemanja Gudelj, Karim Rekik, Marcos Acuña, Fernando, Oliver Torres, Jesus Manuel Corona, A. Dario Gomez, Lucas Ariel Ocampos and Rafael Mir.
📋 Team News: Real Valladolid
Out of a mainly available squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Real Valladolid gaffer José Pacheta to be concerned about. Shon Weissman (Hamstring Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that Pucela appear most likely to elect for a 4-3-3 lineup, going with Sergio Asenjo, Luis Pérez, Joaquín Fernández, Javi Sánchez, Lucas Olaza, Roque Mesa Quevedo, Kike Pérez, Álvaro Aguado, Óscar Plano, Sergio León Limones and Toni Villa.
It looks to us that Sevilla will probably get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
Conversely, Real Valladolid could well struggle to make a breakthrough although we do think it’s probable that they will be converting at least once here, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Sevilla by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
