Two of Spain's top teams do battle at the Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday with both clubs looking to continue their excellent starts to the Primera Division campaign.


PROBABLE LINEUPS

Sevilla (4-4-2): Javi Varas; Caceres, Spahic, Escude, Navarro; Jesus Navas, Medel, Trochowski, Perotti; Kanoute, Negredo


The home team will likely call upon the attacking duo of Alvaro Negredo and Frederic Kanoute to lead the front line against Unai Emery's defense, one that caused a lot of problems for Barcelona midweek.

Valencia (4-2-3-1): Guaita; Bruno, Ruiz, Rami, Mathieu; Banega, Tino Costa; Canales, Piatti, Pablo; Soldado


Captain David Albelda will miss the clash with a back problem after being injured against Barca in the midweek draw. In his place, Argentine Tino Costa is expected to slot into midfield with Sergio Canales getting another shot to prove himself in the starting XI.

  • Sevilla sits in fifth place in the league with eight points after four rounds having won both home games and drawn both away.
