Getafe's winless streak stretched to five games as two Guillherme Siqueira penalties handed Granada a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw at the Alfonso Perez Coliseum on Monday night.
Luis Garcia will though be able to welcome back Miguel Torres and Michel from suspension for the visit of Sevilla, meaning Alexis will be able to move back into his natural position at centre-back.
The Getafe boss is more restricted in his options further forward however, with Angel Lafita, Pedro Leon and Abdel Barrada all still unavailable, so Adrian Colunga may be handed another start after impressing with two assists against Granada.
Sevilla will start league action under another new coach this weekend after Michel was sacked and replaced by Unai Emery.
The new manager's most immediate problem is at left-back with Fernando Navarro suspended and Antonio Luna having joined Mallorca on loan.
Coke therefore may have to deputise in an unnatural position but otherwise Emery is expected to stick largely with the side that started the 0-0 draw with Zaragoza in midweek.
Neither side have been in great form of late but the visitors will be hoping to get the positive reaction in results that so often accompanies a change in manager.
Sevilla will certainly have the better individuals on the field, but whilst their football has been far from exhilarating, Getafe remain a difficult team to beat and a draw seems the most likely outcome.
