Action from Granada on Thursday night as Sevilla take on the hosts in the first leg of the last sixteen in the Copa Del Rey comepetition. Sevilla come into this game in great form unbeaten in their last six and having won five of those six. With a young team assembled from the start of the season Sevilla are possibly ahead of their own expectations sitting fifth in the league table. Bacca, Deulofeu , Gameiro and M'Bia will look to lead Sevilla even higher up the table and given their great tradition in cup competitions I expect them to fully go for this Copa Del Rey as they are one of the five or six teams that believe they can truly win it.
Granada may not really fancy a cup run as they are currently embroiled in a relegation battle. With the team second from bottom they will want to be focused on the league table rather than a cup that they most likely can not win. Granada's problems are based in their lack of goals having scored the least amount in La Liga this season.Unbeaten in their last four home games though Granada have proven that their defence at least is hard to crack.
Tough game to call here I would like to see the starting line ups before taking a side but I dont think there will be many goals. The unders are the pick for me here as both defences have proven to be mean enough in recent weeks.
