Matchpack: Granada v Sevilla

Granada v Sevilla



Granada are without attacking midfielder Carlos martins through suspension, so Abel Gomez is expected to deputise. Goalkeeper Roberto remains a doubt having missed the last eight games, while defender Pape Diakhate is unlikely to feature again this season as he recovers from ankle ligament damage.

Sevilla are expected to be missing defender emir Spahic once again after the Bosnian missed last week's trip to Racing Santander. Diego Perotti is a doubt after he was forced off at half-time during that 3-0 victory at El Sardinero.


Abel Resino: "We are at a high level of performance, competing well and sticking up everywhere. My players to must dare to match Sevilla. Jesus Navas is their most dangerous player, but they also have Alvaro Negredo back and he is important and effective for them."

Michel: "The result the other day (last Thursday's win at Racing) was very good for us, not only for the win but for how we got it and the good level that we showed. There's been talk about weak opponents, but it was because of how we played, and we hope to repeat that tomorrow. However, we cannot dwell on that game. It would be bad if we were still mentally in El Sardinero, because we know the intensity of Granada and our need for points. We need to have the same mindset as the Santander game, though, as we cannot afford a defeat."
