Sevilla and Celta Vigo both fighting for European places now find their grip on their position declining sharply due to their poor results on board. International break had taken a leave for this year and it is not better for both of them to retain their glorious venture in last couple of la liga campaigns.
Much will be at stake at Ramos Sanchez Pijuain for Sevilla and their coach Eduardo Berizo desperate to get back the season on track. They can do so if they carry on their home dominance where they have collected 5 wins. However they have lost four of their last six games in all competition. But to their satisfaction all of them came in away venues. Their performance against Fc Barcelona in 1-2 defeat at Camp Nou is one of the best they made this season. But if are to rebuild their outstanding start to the season in opening couple of games they have to bring something different to make a stop to their poor run of form. Sevilla have enormous fixtures to handle in span of a week with Liverpool in champions league outing and Villarreal next Matchday.
On the other hand, Celta too are struggling with away form this season. They have dropped points on three of five venues and only won two against low lying club. There phenomenal European journey last season is not been demonstrated on the pitch however Celta will be up for surprises. The main cause behind their misery will be Iago Aspas down form as the Spaniard is not at the level he take himself meant to lost his shooting boots in converting his club’s shooting chances. With the leader on the pitch underperforming, Celta are finding it difficult to score goals or derive victories. However the win over Athletic club before the International duties can target table turning resolution.
