Sevilla are aiming for first place in La Liga as they prepare to host relegation-threatened Levante at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday.
Levante are now 18th in La Liga and have struggled to create an impression this season.
Last week, the Valencia-based club was held to a 0-0 draw by Getafe. Sevilla, on the other hand, is now fourth in the league table and have a good start to this season.
In their previous league match, the Andalusians defeated Celta Vigo 1-0.
Rafa Mir is the top scorer for Sevilla this season in La Liga with 3 goals to his name despite starting just 3 games. Mir averages 2.3 shots per game as well.
Erik Lamela can be a good midfield pick from Sevilla. Lamela has 3 goals and 1 assist in the league this season while averaging 1.1 shots per game to go with 1.3 key passes per game.
Marcos Acuna is a good pick from the Sevilla defense that has kept clean sheets in their last 2 games in all competitions. He also averages 2.6 key passes per game to go with 1.6 tackles per game in the league and has one assist to his name.
Jose Luis Morales is a great attacking pick from Levante. Morales has 2 goals in the league in 9 appearances (7 starts), making him their top scorer. He also averages 1.3 shots per game.
Gonzalo Melero is a solid midfield pick. He has 2 assists to his name in the league and averages 1.5 tackles per game as well. Melero averages 31 passes per game too.
For the defense, Carlos Clerc is a great option. He leads the team with an average of 2 tackles per game and ranks 2 nd with 1.8 interceptions per game. Levante also managed to keep a clean sheet last time around so there is value here.
1. Rafa Mir: Rafa Mir is the best option for captaincy in this match, with the Spaniard scoring all 3 of his goals in the league in his last 4 outings. He also scored their only goal in the win over Celta last time around.
2. Erik Lamela: Erik Lamela can be another great captaincy pick. He has the most goal involvements on the team with 4 while averaging 1.1 shots, 1.3 key passes, and 1.8 tackles per game.
