Sevilla vs Villarreal match preview

Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League, as José Mourinho famously said: this is football heritage.

On Thursday night, los Nervionenses smashed Manchester United 3-0, thanks to Youssef En-Nesyri’s brace with Loïc Badé bundling one in off his shoulder in-between.

Los Hispalenses were 2-0 down at Old Trafford 84 minutes into the first leg, but ended up cruising through 5-2 on aggregate.

They’ll now take on Juventus in the semi-finals next month, seeking to win the competition for a record-extending seventh time.

José Luis Mendilibar’s men can fully focus on Europe because, in La Liga, they’re 13th, on the cusp of safety.

Last Sunday night’s 2-0 victory over fellow-strugglers Valencia was crucial, because it means Sevilla are up to 13th, eight points clear of the drop zone.

Villarreal meanwhile only have the league to concern them, having crashed out the Europa Conference League against Anderlecht last month.

Thus, el Submarino Amarillo are desperate the gatecrash the top four and their chances of achieving this seemed high a fortnight ago.

Back then, Villarreal came from 2-0 down to beat Real Madrid 3-2 at the Bernabéu, with Samu Chukwueze bagging a brace.

However, and this epitomises his time in charge, Quique Setién’s team could not back it up as, last weekend, they were beaten 2-1 at home by relegation-threatened Valladolid.

Nevertheless, the Yellow Submarine remain sixth, four points below Real Sociedad in fourth, hoping to close that gap this week, with a midweek round of fixtures coming up.

Who will come out on top at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán?
