Team News

  • Sevilla got their first win under new manager Unai Emery in midweek as they stormed into the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey with a 4-0 win over Real Zaragoza.
  • Emery will be forced into at least one change though as Diego Lopez has joined Real Madrid to cover for the injured Iker Casillas so Andres Palop will return in goal.
  • Hedwiges Maduro could also come back in for Geoffrey Kondogbia but otherwise Los Nervionenses will be unchanged as they look for their look for just their second league win in nine games.
  • Granada meanwhile got a much needed 2-0 win over Rayo Vallecano last weekend to move them out of the relegation zone.
  • With Dani Benitez still out Brayan Angulo may come in on the left side of midfield, but otherwise Juan Antonio Anquela is expected to name the same side that started against Rayo.

Prediction

  • Granada took the bragging rights from this particular Andalusian derby last season as they surprisingly won 2-1 at the Sanchez Pizjuan and with Sevilla's inconsistent form they are more than capable of taking something from the game once more.
  • However, the trio of Jose Antonio Reyes, Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas seem to have awakened slightly since Emery took charge and if they are on form they should fire the hosts to victory.
