La Liga Preview: Sevilla - Atletico Madrid

-

Two of the top contenders for a Champions League spot do battle at Sanchez Pizjuan, looking to get a leg up as the season nears its conclusion.


PROBABLE LINEUPS
SEVILLA


Palop
Coke, Spahic, Fazio, Navarro

Navas, Medel, Rakitic, Reyes
Kanoute, Manu

ATLETICO MADRID



Courtois
Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe
Tiago, Gabi
Arda, Adrian, Koke
Falcao

For the home side, Frederic Kanoute will appear in attack, with Jesus Navas and Gary Medel taking charge in the middle.

The defense, one that which looks revived under Michel, has Federico Fazio in training with no issues on Thursday after missing last weekend's match with Valencia. Diego Perotti is still out after suffering injury last month.

For the visitor, Radamel Falcao returns from international duty a bit delayed after his long flight from Miami did not take off on time, along with team-mate Luis Perea.

The rest of the team appears to be fit, aside from Diego, who will miss a month after suffering a right leg injury a little over a week ago.


DID YOU KNOW?
  • Sevilla currently sits in 10th place in the league with 32 points but sits just two behind its opponent for Saturday, which is in fifth place.

  • Michel Gonzalez's men have a chance to win their third consecutive league game, something they have failed to do all season.

  • Falcao, who found the net in the 2-0 win for Colombia in an international friendly over Mexico on Wednesday, has 15 league goals this season.
  • In their first meeting in October, the teams played out a 0-0 draw.
