Eighteenth-placed Deportivo (W2, D2, L1) meet seventh-placed Sevilla (D3, L2) with the home side now just five points from safety whilst the visitors lay just behind the European qualification spots.
After two giant wins in their last two fixtures, ‘Depor’ (DEP) have six key fixtures ahead to achieve safety from relegation following a long spell of winless games. The Galician side have scored six goals in their last two games – more goals than in their previous 12 games. Furthermore, they are unbeaten in the last four home games (W1, D3), scoring five and conceding four.
With the Champions League keeping Sevilla busy with midweek clashes, and with the Copa del Rey (CDR) final this coming weekend, Sevilla have had the more active season. They have not won a game in all competitions since their 2-1 away win to Manchester United, and their last La Liga (LL) victory came in a 2-0 win against Bilbao, both in March.
The ‘Sevillistas Los Rojiblancos’ (SEV) have conceded 12 goals in five games and need to get back to winning ways to ensure European competition for next season. Dropping two places in their last two games, Sevilla still have the top six within their reach, and also face Barcelona in the final of the CDR.
