Julen Lopetegui's men recorded their first win in five games in the league against Osasuna in their previous outing.
Celta Vigo are winless in the competition in their last seven games and could only hold Elche to a 1-1 draw last time around.

Sevilla vs Celta Vigo Team News
Sevilla are set to be without the services of striker Carlos Fernandez after the player tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday. Fortunately, all other players reported negative test results and have resumed training.
Julen Lopetegui conducted the training sessions without the full-back duo of Jesus Navas and Marcos Acuna. Both players picked up injuries against Osasuna, and will have to sit this one out.
Injured: Jesus Navas (knock), Marcos Acuna (undisclosed), Carlos Fernandez (COVID)
Celta Vigo players Emre Mor, Kevin Vazquez and Sergio Alvarez will all miss the trip to Seville due to injuries. Alvarez is not expected back before the new year, while Emre Mor and Vazquez are not back to full fitness yet, despite rejoining training.

Sevilla vs Celta Vigo Prediction
Celta's new coach Eduardo Coudet faces a tricky opponent in his first game at the helm of the club. He will be looking to turn things around with a win here and will hope that top scorer Iago Aspas puts in a solid shift.
Sevilla, on the other hand, have got back to winning ways and will be hoping to get out of the bottom half of the table with their second win in a row since July.
Given the form of both clubs and the fact that Celta have a new manager, we think a win for Sevilla is the most likely outcome in this game.
