Sevilla host Borussia Dortmund this evening at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in the third round of the Champions League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
Sevilla are hoping to get their first win of this season’s Champions League to keep their hopes alive of making it to the knock-out rounds.
The game is believed to be Julen Lopetegui’s final match in charge of Los Nervionenses, as it appears as though Argentine Jorge Sampaoli is set to replace the Basque coach.
Even though he resumed training, Marcão is not deemed fit just yet by the club’s medical staff to make an appearance in a competitive match.
Sevilla will be without Fernando in midfield. Due to the injury of Karim Rekik, Nemanja Gudelj is expected to slot into the defensive line.
AS predict that Lopetegui will field the following starting XI vs Borussia Dortmund: Bono – José Ángel Carmona, Nemanja Gudelj, Tanguy Nianzou, Alex Telles – Érik Lamela, Joan Jordán, Papu Gómez, Thomas Delaney, Isco – Youssef En-Nesyri.
