Alaves are on a poor run of form as they’re approaching this clash after defeats from Cadiz, Burgos and Valencia.
Sevilla are preparing for the match after 2 defeats in a row from Manchester City and Valencia being unable to win in their past 3 games. They’re going to need to sort out the problems in the back first to improve the results as they have been conceding goals for 6 consecutive away matches now.
