On 16 August 2021, Sevilla vs Rayo Vallecano will play their first match in “La Liga” at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Seville. I hope the match will be competitive. Two team will take the field hoping for their first win.
Sevilla chiefs did well to sign Erik Lamela from Tottenham in the summer transfer window, and we are positive that the pacey winger will pose a big threat to the opposition defenders. Youssef En-Nesyri, who scored 18 goals in the 2020/21 La Liga campaign, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.

Sevilla vs Rayo Vallecano Match Preview:
Unai Emery is in the midst of an injury crisis missing many regulars like Ever Banega, Nico Pareja and Adil Rami. Emery may opt for a four-man midfield once again despite picking up no points against Las Palmas. There could be a case for the inclusion of Fernando Llorente and Kevin Gameiro.
For Rayo Vallecano, summer signing Pablo Hernandez is still a doubt due to injury. There are doubts on the availability of Patrick Ebert and Ze Castro too. Javi Guerra could retain his place up top for Paco Jemez’s side. With the side cobbling together some form, there may not be many changes.
