Sevilla vs Granada: Preview and Prediction

After booking a place in the UEFA Europa League finals, Sevilla will be hosting Granada on Sunday evening at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.

Sevilla are in the 7th position in the La Liga which has qualified them for next season’s playoff of Uefa Europa League, they also stand the chance of playing in the Champions League play off should they win Liverpool in the Final of the Europa League.

Sevilla is currently having a poor form, they have won just 3 of their last 10 games, lost 5 and drawn 2. But Sevilla’s home form has been good, they have lost just 1 of their last 10 home games, won 8 and drawn 1.

On the other hand, Granada are still in danger of relegation, they are in the 16th position and they are just 1 point above Sporting Gijon in the 18th place. They come into this game from a win and will need to win their next 2 games to guarantee themselves safe.

Sevilla may look like the favourites but having just played a game on Thursday, fatigue may take a toll on them.
