Sevilla – Statistics & Current Form
Thursday night’s home game against Rayo Vallecano will be their 57th competitive fixture this season for Sevilla players. Due to the participation in the Europa League qualification, the team had to complete a hammer program this season. To keep the performance constant at a high level during this period is almost impossible. Nevertheless, the fierce 0: 3 defeat on early Sunday afternoon in Getafe was not expected. Before the game in the capital Neo coach Joaquin Caparros (who recently made his leukemia disease public) with his record (four wins, one defeat) be completely satisfied. But in Getafe, the team stood in its own way and struggled with the discipline. Two penalties in just twelve minutes (both due to a handball match) and two yellow cards for complaining brought Sevilla to the losing line. Ex-Schalke player Sergio Escudero was also sent off in the second penalty with yellow-red. This burden was too big and the defeat drove the Caparros-Elf from fourth to sixth. The blatant away weakness (eight defeats in 17 games, only five wins) was underlined by this bankruptcy.
At home, however, things are going a lot better for Sevilla and the home record with ten wins, three draws and three defeats is impressive. The eleventh home win on Thursday is almost an obligation to continue dreaming of returning to the UEFA Champions League. With the duel against Rayo Vallecano, Girona, Leganes, Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao, the Caparros-Elf has an exciting rest program in front of his chest, because only Leganes plays in the finish “to the golden pineapple”. In the home games, the Andalusians must not be naked. In the duel between Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano a prediction on the home win is certainly obvious.
Due to the many games this season injury-related failures are not really surprising at this time of the season. Against Rayo Vallecano, Sevilla will have to do without the suspended Escudero, Wöber (IV), Gonalons (DM), Sarabia (OM), Nolito (left wing) and Andre Silva (striker). Nevertheless, the squad is wide enough to compensate for these failures.
Expected lineup of Sevilla:
↪ Vaclik – Arana, Gomez, Kjaer, Mercado – El Haddadi, Amadou, Banega, Navas – Ben Yedder, Vazquez

Rayo Vallecano – Statistics & Current Form
With the exception of four games (4-6 and 21) Rayo Vallecano was on a relegation zone this season. The sympathetic club from the capital, which is repeatedly compared to St. Pauli, will probably need to start the second gear again after only 38 games. Once again a league change is imminent! Despite the weak results, the club’s leadership held long ascent coach and club icon Michel. But the now 43-year-old ex-professional could no longer turn the rudder. A month ago, it came apart and Paco Jemez returned to Rayo Vallecano. Jemez was also a player at the club from Madrid and worked from 2012-2016. However, the mission relegation is almost a “mission impossible”. In the five previous games under Jemez Rayo Vallecano could collect five counters (1-2-2 balance sheet). A big-point missed Rayo last weekend! In the basement duel against Huesca before home crowd, there was only a goalless draw.
This victory would have been of great importance. The draw is still six points away from the draw. After all, with the duels against Levante, Real Valladolid and Celta Vigo still three direct duels on the program. Before that, however, the Jemez-Elf awaits the crashes against Sevilla and next Sunday against Real Madrid. Depending on the outcome of these games, the three direct duels could be too late.
The away game in Andalusia is further complicated by the yellow card suspension of midfielder Medran and striker Raul de Tomas. Especially the failure of de Tomas can not be compensated. The Real Madrid player is life insurance with Rayo Vallecano and has already scored 14 goals this season. The second best scorer Embarba has hit only three times. In addition to these two failures, the weak outlook (3-1-12) is by no means surprising. In the duel between Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano not even a tip on the double chance X or 2 is recommended. A point win would definitely be a big surprise in this unequal duel between CL aspirant and relegation candidate / relegated!
