It’s been a good week for Unai Emery and his men. The defending Europa League champions beat Fiorentina midweek to secure a second successive final appearance and an opportunity to defend the cup. The club will face Dnipro later this month with the prospect of playing the UCL also up for consideration. Before that however they will hope to make it a double celebration by overtaking Valencia and sealing fourth, a position that would also guarantee top level European football next season. Emery’s men are in good form, losing just one of their last 12 games. Last time out in the league they drew 1-1 away to Celta Vigo and they will fancy their chances of a 3rd win in 5 this weekend. The club have a number of absentees this weekend with Beto, Stephane M’Bia, Nicolas Pareja and Sebastian Cristoforo all missing out.

Almeria Betting News

Despite sitting 16th in the table on 32 points, the club are still not safe and a defeat to Sevilla on Sunday could see them drop as low as 2nd from bottom, depending on results elsewhere. The club are just one point ahead of 19th place Eibar with their goal difference of -27 on par with those around them, the exception being Granada. Last time out the club went down 2-1 at home to Malaga. The defeat was their 5th in their last 8 with 2 wins and 1 draw recorded during that run. Fran Velez and Michel won’t be available to manager Sergi Barjuan as he looks to improve that record and steer his side to safety.

Sevilla vs Almeria Match Prediction

Sevilla won 2-0 when they met earlier in the season with Vicente Iborra and Coke scoring the goals.  The win made it four wins from their last four meetings for Emery’s men and means they have lost just one of their last 7 meetings. That defeat came home in a 3-1 loss but Sevilla fans will point to the fact that it came in 2010.
