On Thursday night, Sevilla have a golden opportunity to move into the top four of La Liga, as the team from Andalucia host Rayo Vallecano at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

The home side is currently sixth in La Liga, two points behind Getafe, who occupy the last Champions League spot in the Spanish top-flight, and only behind fifth-place Valencia by virtue of an inferior head-to-head record.

Sevilla’s rivals for a top-four spot face tough games on Thursday night, with Getafe hosting Real Madrid and Valencia at Atletico Madrid.

Sevilla suffered a blow to their challenge for a top-four place last time out in La Liga, as Joaquin Caparros’ team lost 3-0 to rivals Getafe. The defeat ended a three-game winning run for Sevilla in La Liga.

The home sides recent home record in La Liga has been unusually inconsistent. However, the Andalusian’s have won three of their last four matches on home soil in the Spanish top-flight. They have also scored at least two goals in six of their last seven league outings at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

Rayo Vallecano are currently bottom of La Liga and six points from safety. A goalless draw with fellow strugglers Huesca last time out in the Spanish top-flight means that Rayo have now won just one of their last 12 matches in La Liga.

The visitors’ poor defensive displays have not helped their cause, as they have conceded at least two goals in six of their last nine outings in La Liga.

Picking up points on their travels has also been a big problem for Rayo Vallecano, as they have lost their last six away games in La Liga, conceding at least two goals in each of the defeats.

Forebet predicts that Sevilla will record a comfortable victory in a high scoring clash to improve their chances of landing a lucrative top four spot this season.
