Unai Emery’s players are focused on winning the third Europa League title in a row and basically gave up battling in the domestic league. Sevilla took only two points in their last six Primera matches. The visitors have 14 wins, 10 draws and 11 defeats in 35 league matches and sit on the 7th position in the standings with 52 points and 49-42 goal difference. Sevilla are unlikely to finish below this place and such approach to the league matches won’t let them to finish above their current position. Sevilla are the only La Liga side that haven’t won a single match away from home. Emery’s men have taken only nine points in 17 league matches on the road with 12-25 goal difference.
Sevilla have advantage in the head-to-head and won the reverse match 2-0 earlier this season. However, there are many factors that aren’t in favor of the visitors. Sevilla travel to Catalonia right in the middle of the two-leg matchup with Shakhtar Donetsk and they show no intention to battle in domestic league in recent matches. On top of that, Sevilla have the worst away record among all Primera’s teams. Espanyol, in turn, still need points to guarantee their top-division place for the next season.
Prediction for the match: Espanyol to win with +0.0 Asian handicap.
