Celta go into this game on the back of the fourth defeat in six La Liga games, while Sevilla will feel hard done by after a referee helped Barcelona come from two goals behind and win at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
The club from Galicia began their La Liga campaign with back to back defeats to Malaga and Real Sociedad, hinting they would be in for a difficult relegation tussle.
And while the team continued to struggle away from home, losing all three matches on the travels, they managed to show a considerable improvement at their Estadio de Balaidos.
Home wins over Osasuna and Getafe can give os Celestes reason for optimism before the visit of in-form Sevilla, with Celta now 3.00 (2/1) at Ladbrokes to win their third successive home game.
Veteran winger Enrique de Lucas is set to return to the starting line-up after missing the Granada defeat to injury. Samuel Llorca, Dani Abalo, Sergio and Jonathan Vila did not make the squad.
Probable starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Varas – Hugo Mallo, Cabral, Tunez, Bellvis – Borja Oubina, Natxo Insa – De Lucas, Park, Krohn-Dehli – Iago Aspas.
Sevilla have enjoyed a brilliant start to the season, showing everyone they can mount a serious top 4 challenge this term.
Los Rojiblancos picked up no less than 11 points from first 5 league games, beating Real Madrid in the process, so no wonder everybody expected them to make life difficult for Barcelona as well.
That is precisely what they did, taking a 2-0 lead to put an extra pressure on the Catalans. However, their task became a lot more difficult when Cesc Fabregas faked injury following the clash with Gary Medel and the Chilean’s sending off helped Barcelona record a very important win.
Michel’s side can, nonetheless, take a lot of heart from the impressive showing against one of the world’s top sides, and with that in mind, odds of 2.60 (8/5) offered at BetVictor on away win could be worth a shot.
Gary Medel and Ivan Rakitic are both banned for this clash, while fellow midfielder Piotr Trochowski is out with a knee problem.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Palop – Cicinho, Botia, Spahic, Navarro – Kondogbia, Campana, Maduro – Navas, Negredo, Manu.
