Sevilla suffered their third consecutive defeat in their previous outing against Athletic Club, who inflicted a 2-1 loss on the Andalusians. As a result of their poor form, last season's Europa League winners find themselves languishing in 16th spot in the league standings.
Osasuna have done well this season and are in the ninth spot thanks to two wins in their last four league fixtures.

Sevilla vs Osasuna Team News
Sevilla have a few injury concerns heading into the fixture. Julen Lopetegui is set to be without winger Suso, who is nursing a muscle injury. The former Real Madrid manager will also not be able to call upon Oussama Idrissi, who has been out of action for the last few weeks.
Sergi Gómez has trained with the group as per the latest reports and could start from the bench against Osasuna. Jesus Navas picked up a straight red card in their win over Krasnodar but remains available for La Liga fixtures.
Injured: Suso (muscle), Oussama Idrissi (knock)
Doubtful: Sergi Gómez
Osasuna have a lengthy injury list, with four players facing at least a couple of weeks on the sideline. Chimy Ávila, Jonathan Calleri, Aridane Hernández and Juan Manuel Pérez are all ruled out of the game with injuries. Brandon Thomas has made a speedy recovery but is still a doubt for the game.
Injured: Chimy Ávila (ACL), Jonathan Calleri (knee), Aridane Hernández (knee), Juan Manuel Pérez (hamstring)
Doubtful: Brandon Thomas (ACL)

Sevilla vs Osasuna Prediction
Sevilla have maintained good form in the UEFA Champions League but have failed to replicate that in La Liga. They have lost three games in a row and are winless in the last four. They have struggled to score goals at times and their defence has also been unreliable.
Osasuna do not have the best record against Sevilla in recent fixtures and have scored only two goals in their last four outings.
Sevilla secured a 3-2 comeback win over Krasnador in the Champions League in midweek. They will no doubt ride that momentum into this match and secure a narrow victory at home on Saturday night.
