• This will be the first ever top-flight meeting between Celta and Sevilla on the 31st week of the season.
  • The Galician side have lost just one of their last four against Sevilla at the Balaidos (W2 D1).
  • Of their eight previous meetings with Andalusian sides this season, Celta have lost just one (W6 D1), though that was their last home game against Malaga (0-2).
  • Celta are without a win in four home league games (D2 L2), scoring just one goal in total.
  • The side from Nervion have won their last three away league games; they have never won four in a row in a single La Liga season.
  • Indeed overall, Sevilla have won their last six league games; already their best run inside a single top-flight campaign.
  • Celta Vigo would find themselves in the relegation zone if only home points counted this season (15 points).
  • Carlos Bacca has scored 14 league goals this season; just one fewer than Luis Fabiano managed in his first two campaigns with Sevilla combined (5 in 05/06 and 10 in 06/07).
  • Sevilla have scored 22 goals from set pieces this season; a joint-high with Real Madrid.
