Next Match: away to Villarreal, December 21
Europe: UEFA Europa League (Round of 32)
Unai Emery has been dealt another blow following his side's dramatic exit from the Copa del Rey to Racing Santander. The Sevilla coach will now be without Alberto Moreno for the trip to Villarreal on Saturday, after the left-back picked up a muscle strain. The Andalusians will already be without midfielder Stephane M'Bia, who is suspended for the game, plus long-term injured players Denis Cheryshev, Nico Pareja, Marko Marin and Cicinho. Sevilla are unbeaten in their last four league matches and the match is an opportunity for them to reduce the gap between themselves and fifth-placed Villarreal to two points.
