• In nine previous top-flight meetings between these sides, there has never been draw; Almeria have won three and Sevilla have won six, including three of four on the road (L1).
  • The last time Sevilla qualified for the Champions League, they did so with a 3-2 victory in Almeria on the final day of the season, with Rodri scoring his first La Liga goal.
  • Indeed Rodri and Alvaro Negredo are the only two players to score for both sides in this La Liga fixture.
  • There have been three red cards in the four previous meetings between these sides in the Juegos Mediterraneos (one for Almeria, two for Sevilla).
  • If they win this game, Sevilla will equal their longest winning run of the campaign (three).
  • Beto has kept three consecutive clean sheets, he has never kept four; indeed the last Sevilla keeper to do so in La Liga was Javi Varas in 2011.
  • Almeria have kept five consecutive clean sheets at the Juegos Mediterraneos; their best ever record on home soil in the top-flight.
  • The defeat to Valencia this season was the only time Unai Emery has lost in La Liga to a side he has previously managed (W7 D2); he has won six and drawn one of seven against Almeria.
  • No La Liga player has made more away assists than Ivan Rakitic this season (six, with five coming from set piece situations).
