Sevilla are fresh off of a win versus league leaders Atletico Madrid. Los Rojiblancos go into the game in fourth place in the La Liga standings. They are well off the pace for the title and are focused on holding onto fourth place with Real Sociedad 12 points behind them. Sevilla merely need to continue to collect points and ease into the offseason.

Manager Julen Lopetegui’s team are unbeaten in four straight games with three of those finishing in wins. Monday night’s opponents, Celta Vigo, are eighth in the La Liga standings. However, the Sky Blues are well off the pace for the top six and the Europa League qualification places. Nine points separate Celta Vigo from the top six. Manager Eduardo Coudet has improved the side since taking over as manager around midseason. The Sky Blues are 13 points above the relegation zone. They have no worries of going down to the Segunda.

The last eight matches in La Liga between Celta Vigo and Sevilla finished with the home team gaining a result. Sevilla won at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium earlier this season 4-2. Jules Kounde, Youssef En-Neysri, Sergio Escudero, and Munir El Haddadi all got on the scoresheet for Los Rojiblancos. Celta Vigo got goals from Iago Aspas and Nolito.
