On May 4, Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla) will host the match of the 33rd round of the La Liga, in which Sevilla will compete with Espanyol. The battle will start at 19:30 CET.
The club is spending the season in a traditional way. It is trying to save the situation through success in the Europa League, which has already worked repeatedly. This time the Spanish team overcame not only PSV and Fenerbahçe, but also, being already under the rule of the current mentor, Mendilibar, knocked out Manchester United in April. It goes without saying that the English grandee made mistakes, but not everyone can use them, including a draw at Old Trafford after losing with a 0-2 score. Of course, the attention is completely paid to the semi-final of the European tournament, where there is experienced and motivated Juventus. The fact that it has reached the middle of the table is more than helpful. Perhaps the momentum has ended, or the team simply decided that there is nothing to struggle for. Girona defeated the opponent with a 0-2 score on Monday.
The team, with scoring-a-lot Joselu (the experienced newcomer even managed to make his debut in the national team of Spain, where he immediately made a double), fails the season. The management patiently waited for progress from Diego Martinez for a long time, dismissing him only in April after another defeat made by Girona. Still, the new coach, Luis Garcia Fernandez, started with a new failure – there were no points in the matches with Athletic and Betis, and only the home battle against Cadiz resulted in a goalless draw. Last week there happened one more defeat – a 2-4 one made by Villarreal. Only the previous round brought a victory – the team beat Getafe. There, the single goal (from the penalty) was scored by Joselu. The experienced debutant of the Spanish national team scored his 14th ball of the season.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The last time Espanyol won was in 2017. The next 9 head-to-head matches resulted in 3 draws and 6 victories taken by Sevilla, including a September 3-2 one in Catalonia.
Bookmakers do not believe that Espanyol will achieve the second success in a row, or that Sevilla will misfire again. Thus, we bet that the hosts will win (odd: 1.84).
