Sevilla boss Michel may well be drinking in the last chance saloon when his side take on Osasuna at the Sanchez Pizjuan.
The Rojiblancos have had an up and down campaign but more recently the trend has been decidedly downwards – four defeats in their last five games.
They are now 14th, just four points above the drop zone, and incessant rumours linking the likes of Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas with moves away haven’t lightened the mood at the club.
“This team has an idea of what needs changing and we will do it against Osasuna,” said goalkeeper Diego Lopez. “I believe that this match is perfect for us.”
Osasuna are second bottom and have lost the momentum of their recent four game unbeaten run, falling 2-1 at home to Granada before the break.
Kick off: Saturday January 5, 9.00 (BST)
