After, belatedly, claiming their first home victory of the season, will Sevilla start to surge away from the relegation spots?
Last Sunday, goals from Marcos Acuña and then Rafa Mir saw los Nervionenses, just about, overcome Getafe 2-1 at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
This was the first time Jorge Sampaoli’s team had won a game since 15 October, and just their third league victory of the campaign in total.
Los Hispalenses have moved out of the relegation zone, albeit only on goal difference, now seeking back-to-back La Liga wins for the first time since 9 January last year.
Girona meantime are only three points better off than their visitors, but start the weekend all the way up in 12th.
Both of Blanquivermells’ matches since the restart have ended 2-2, first drawing with Rayo Vallecano before sharing the spoils with Espanyol last time out.
Toni Villa breaking the deadlock, before Yangel Herrera equalised late on in Catalonia, taking great delight in netting against one of his many former employers.
Míchel’s men are now unbeaten in six and, even if four of these games have been draws, the Catalan club are doing more than enough to stay clear of danger.
This game could go either-way at Montilivi.
