Sevilla vs Chelsea: Preview, Team News, and Predicted Line-ups

Chelsea travel to Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium for a crunch match against Sevilla FC on Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League.

The Blues come to Seville after a tough 0-0 draw against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. However, this match will decide the group winner as both teams qualified for the Round of 16.

Los Nervionenses come with an away win 0-1 against Huesca in the La Liga. Since the appointment of Julen Lopetegui as the head coach, they have been impressive.

Sevilla vs Chelsea Preview:

Chelsea had almost solved their defensive issues but there still persists some offensive issues. They were not able to find a win in the last match which ended as 0-0.

The Blues are unbeaten in the last 11 matches they have played (W7 D4). Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy had been keeping 8 clean sheets and only conceding 3 goals.

Sevilla are unbeaten against any English teams since Leicester City defeated them 2-0 in March 2017. They would have the home advantage and would be keen to be the group leaders for the first time since the 2009-10 season.

They have been maintaining a 5-match winning streak as of now.

In another match, Krasnodar host Stade Rennes for the battle for Europa League spot.

Sevilla vs Chelsea Team News and Predicted Lineup:

Chelsea would try to bring in their best starting 11. After a last-minute goal against Rennes, Olivier Giroud will get more playing time.

Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz may be included in the starting 11. Cesar Azplicueta might be in the substitutes and Reece James might start.

Sevilla have an unchanged starting 11. Sergio Escudero has been injured. Bono has been tested positive for COVID-19 whereas Tomas Vaclik has made a return for the Goalkeeper position.

Lopetegui had a variety of options upfront. Youssef En-Nesyri and Ivan Rakitic had been clinical. Luuk de Jong would be looking to score after his last goal coming against Rennes.

Predicted score:

Our prediction could be Chelsea winning the match. It would be a great match to be honest.

Sevilla 0 – 1 Chelsea
