FC Sevilla vs. FC Girona / La Liga – The table suggests that this is even one of the most interesting matches in this round of La Liga, because Sevilla is sixth and Girona is ninth with only two points less. The team of Girona is probably much more satisfied with their situation, because they are new in La Liga and their only goal is to survive, which is practically not necessary to worry about. Sevilla has a lot of work to do until the end of the season and must get to the position for the Champions League. Sevila will also play the Cup finals, and their first this seasons mutual duel ended in favour of Sevilla with 1-0. Begins: 11.02.2018. – 12:00 CET
When it is known that Sevilla has won placement in the finals of the Copa del Rey, then it could be said that they even have a successful season, to which we should also add the round of sixteen of the Champions League, however, the championship is problematic and they cannot seem to find a way to consolidate their ranks. The best proof of this is the match of last round when they lost to Eibar with even 5-1.
And it was not the first time this season that Sevilla had a hard time in one match, so Spartak defeated them in the Champions League with the same result, they lost to Real Madrid in the championship with 5-0, and with 4-0 to Valencia, while they received five goals by their city's rival Betis. They are a little comforted by the victory in the Cup over Leganes and placement in the finals, while they are now looking for a way to celebrate in La Liga, with the proviso that Banega has no right to perform as well as the injured Nolito.
Probable lineups FC Sevilla: S.Rico – Layun, Mercado, Lenglet, Escudero – N'Zonzi, Pizarro – Sarabia, Vazquez, Correa – Ben Yedder
Girona was previously eliminated from the Cup, but this is absolutely no problem for this team, because they had only one goal in their historic season among elite and that is survival. It can almost now be said that they have met this goal because they before this round have a big 14 points more than the teams that are in relegation zone. In addition, the team from Girona is very good and they are undefeated in the previous four games and they twice on their field, and played two draws as guests. A draw with Atletico in Madrid has a value of victory, and it is important to say that they celebrated on their field without any goals received.
They have mastered Las Palmas with 6-0, while they in the last round defeated Athletic Bilbao with 2-0. They have only received one goal in these four games, which means that their defence is playing well, and they are coming relieved to Sevilla. Coach Machin is not logically changing anything in the starting lineup, and only Muniesa remained on the bench in the last round, and now Maffeo cannot play due to yellow cards.
Probable lineups FC Girona: Bounou – Espinosa, Juanpe, Ramalho – Aday, Pons, Granell, Mojica – Portu, Borja, Stuani
FC Sevilla vs. FC Girona PICK
Girona is an unpleasant rival to all this season, so it will not be easy for Sevilla, but this team after the placement in the finals of the Cup has the obligation to finally play a good match in front of their fans and that is why we believe that Andalusians will dominate and celebrate a victory in this match.
