Possibilities for Sevilla

Míriam Nadal

While most of the attention will be focussed on the Barça and Real Madrid next weekend, Sevilla can still lift the league title at the last gasp if the big two slip up.

Sevilla drew their last game – against Mallorca in the Ono Estadi - a match where coach Juande Ramos had to cope with a number of important absences, including Jesús Navas, Kerjakov and, above all, Kanouté. If Sevilla had taken the three points, they would now be part of a three-way tie on points together with Real Madrid and Barça.

This Sunday at 9 pm, Sevilla will face Villarreal, a club that has to fight it out with Zaragoza and Atlético Madrid for the two UEFA Cup places.

Their chances

Sevilla will be league champions if Madrid doesn’t win and Barça loses. Obviously, Sevilla will need a lot to run in their favour but looking back at last weekend’s results it’s clear that anything is possible.

Not at full strength

Among those who will be missing are Kanouté (away on international duty with Mali), Alves (with Brazil for the Copa America), central defenders Dragutinovic and Javi Navarro and, possibly, Adriano (right biceps). Meanwhile, Navas and Kerjakov will face last minute fitness tests.

If Sevilla are to add the league title to the UEFA Cup and the European Super Cup, they will have to do so without some of the key players who have contributed to such a successful season.
