- Sevilla’s 1-0 home win in the Sevillian derby last weekend ended their run of two consecutive La Liga (LL) losses and consolidated their UEFA Champions League placing. That result did continue a recent trend though, as all but one of Sevilla’s last eight LL fixtures have now witnessed only one side score (W6, L2), emphasising the importance of netting first.
- The ‘Sevillistas’ have lost just one of their previous eight home league matches (D1, L1), and also claimed victory in the two most recent LL H2Hs here, so morale should be high. They’ve also registered a league-best 2.8 points on average when scoring first at home this campaign (W9, D1), so will be especially keen for a good start.
- Visiting Elche may have claimed just two victories from their previous 21 top-flight outings (D8, L11), but they still sit above the relegation zone with this game in hand. Encouragingly though, 25% of their league points have come in their last five matches (W2, L3), all five of which saw the LL strugglers go into the break unbeaten (HT: W1, D4).
- With only two wins from 13 LL away outings (D3, L8), and an average of just 0.85 goals scored per road trip, ‘Los Franjiverdes’ will start as clear outsiders here. Some of the blame for those poor away performances can be pinned on Elche’s slow starts, as they have failed to score before HT in 69.23% of their LL road trips this campaign.
- Players to watch: Sevilla’s Luuk de Jong has been the game’s final scorer in his previous three goalscoring competitive matches, including the reverse H2H. For the visitors, Lucas Boyé has been Elche’s first goalscorer with four of his five league strikes this campaign.
- Hot stat: No LL side has converted more HT draws into wins this campaign than Sevilla (ten).
