Predicted Sevilla XI vs Linares

Sevilla travel to the nearby Andalucían province of Jáen to face Linares in the round of last 32 of the Copa del Rey.

The competition will offer Los Nervionenses a break from La Liga, where they are currently fighting against relegation. Jorge Sampaoli is expected to make a couple of changes to the side that drew 1-1 against Celta Vigo on Friday.

Rafa Mir, who suffered a muscle injury last week, will most likely be replaced by Erik Lamela, while Ivan Rakitić is predicted to get the nod ahead of Joan Jordán. New signing Loïc Badé is currently injured and is yet to train with the team.

Predicted Sevilla lineup against Linares

AS predict that Sampaoli will field the following starting XI against Linares: Marko Dmitrović – Gonzalo Montiel, Tanguy Nianzou, Nemanja Gudelj, Kike Salas, Marcos Acuña – Ivan Rakitić, Fernando, Óliver Torres – Erik Lamela, Youssef En-Nesyri.

The match is set to kick off at 7 pm CET.
