Deportivo travels to Seville with Antonio Tomas and Piscu, but without Lassad. It is expected that Lotina will use the same squad that drew with Getafe, though there’s the doubt of who will play at the right wing: Lafita or Pablo Alvarez.

As it was expected, striker Lassad Nouioui was left out of the list ahead of the game against Sevilla FC. The Tunisian youngster still struggling of a muscular contracture on his right leg. It is the third straight game that he misses after the ex-Fabril scored the winning goal against Real Valladolid at the Riazor.

At least coach Miguel Angel Lotina is recovering midfielder Antonio Tom??s (stress fracture) and central defender Adri??n L??pez ?Piscu’ (ankle sprain). Both players have missed the competition during the last month and now they are alternatives for the coach at the bench. Their presence in the squad traveling to Seville has left out Pablo Amo and De Guzm??n, the duo discarded this time due to technical reasons.

The list of picked players for the match was released since Thursday because the team is traveling early in the morning to Andalusia (09h05 CET). The squad will complete a training session at Sevilla’s training pitch just one hour after landing in the airport.

It is expected that Lotina will use the same starting eleven that drew with Getafe, the only doubt is if the Basque coach will give a new chance to Pablo Alvarez or if Angel Lafita will keep performing on the right wing.

The rest should be the same squad of the past weekend, with Dani Aranzubia at the goal, Manuel Pablo at the right-back position, Filipe Luis on the left and the duo Albert Lopo-Ze Castro at the centre. In midfield, Sergio and Juan Rodriguez will keep playing in the pivote functions, while Joan Verd?? will be the playmaker. Finally, Andr?s Guardado will play at the left wing and Rodolfo Bodipo will be the lonely attacker.

List of picked players:
Goalkeepers: Aranzubia and Mun??a
Defenders: Manuel Pablo, Laure, Adri??n L??pez ?Piscu’, Z? Castro, Lopo, Colotto and Filipe
Midfielders: Antonio Tom??s, Sergio, Juan Rodr?guez, Pablo ?lvarez, Guardado, Cristian, Lafita, Verd?? and Valer??n
Strikers: Bodipo and Riki.
