Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Sevilla will look to escape the relegation zone when they welcome Getafe to their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday. Los Sevillanos are not enjoying a season to remember, but this game could be the turning point for Jorge Sampaoli’s troops. Defender Jose Angel Carmona serves a one-game ban, while both Rakitic and Nianzou are back from suspension. Gonzalo Montiel, who won the World Cup trophy with Argentina, is banned for the match as well.
Los Azulones, on the other hand, recorded a very important 2-0 win over Mallorca, with the team climbing to 14th place in the standings. Getafe, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and seeing that over the years Sevilla have turned their “Pizjuan” into a real fortress, home win should be considered. Midfielder Mauro Arambarri remains on the sidelines with injury for the away team.
