Lopetegui is without forward Youssef En-Nesyri who is ruled out until mid-November with a hamstring injury. The loss of En-Nesyri is a big blow.

The team failed to score against Granada showing just how massive the loss of En-Nesyri is.

Defender Diego Carlos is suspended for the game on Sunday. Lopetegui will need to alter things at the back for Sevilla this weekend.

Sevilla are unbeaten in 10 of their last 13 games against Celta Vigo in all competitions. Los Rojiblancos should claim another win this weekend against a struggling Celta Vigo.
