Sevilla vs Deportivo La Coruna Preview

 

Sevilla vs Deportivo La Coruna

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Date: 2nd December 2017

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Sevilla may be having an inconsistent season but they remain one of the sides to beat at home and in Europe.

The Seville based side are one of three teams that could make it to the next round in their Champions League group and they will be have one eye on their next Champions League game against Maribor next week.

With that in mind, they could rest some players in this game but even with some players rested, they could get a result as Deportivo’s defence is not the best in the league.

They have one of the biggest squads in La Liga with the likes of Ben Yedder and Nolito offering them options up front.

Sevilla have scored at least two goals in 7 of their last 8 matches in all competitions and they will be looking to continue that good form here.

Deportivo also tend to be involved in high-scoring matches so far.

77% of their league matches as well as at least 80% of their away games have ended with over 2.5 goals.

With Lucas Perez leading their attack, they have been devastating on the break and that could trouble Sevilla’s defence in this game.

Perez has scored 5 times in his last 9 appearances and his pace should help execute counter attacks effectively against this Sevilla defence.

Depor have the 5th worst defence in the league as they have let in 1.92 goals per game this season.
