Sevilla are back in action with another La Liga fixture this weekend as they take on Espanyol in an important encounter on Saturday. Sevilla have been impressive over the past year and hold the upper hand going into this game.

Espanyol are in 13th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have been fairly impressive this season. The Catalan outfit dominated the Segunda Division last season and edged Deportivo Alaves to a 1-0 victory last week.

Sevilla, on the other hand, have excelled under Julen Lopetegui and are in third place in the league table. The Andalusians eased past Valencia in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
