The Alaves-Sevilla used to be duels of one team for the hell of the table and another in the medium-high area. But this time it is located on the first floor of Primera, with only three points between them. The equality that occurs in the first third of the season has led to this revolution.
Machín has an author team. He began to forge it in Girona but the libretto closed it in Seville. Impatient readers wanted to burn it at the stake in the first days but now triumphs in the capital of Seville. Use three central and two very long bands with talented people that look more up than behind them.
To counteract the leader it is possible that Abelardo raised a trivot that gave him good results with Madrid and Celta but not against Barcelona. Ely is still injured and Marín has not yet caught the rhythm of the game. And in the case of having done it, it is difficult to enter this team. The fans in Vitoria are aware that curves come with Sevilla, Atlético, two Basque derbies, Valencia and Girona.

The main concern of El Pitu is to recover the defensive solidity and the punch that has characterized him in the first matches, which he lost in the last match against Leganés (1-0).
Sevilla moved without time to lament after losing on Thursday in Belgium against Standard de Liège, forcing them to win at home on the last day to Russian Krasnodar to move to the Round of 32. Machín has a problem on the right, due to Navas' injury and Vidal's doubt.
