Sevilla could name an unchanged side ahead of the trip to the El Molinon at the weekend, with Luciano Vietto and Victor Vitolo set to spearhead the attack for the visitors.
On the injury front, Los Rojiblancos are still without defensive duo Benoit Tremoulinas and Daniel Carrico through injury.
On the other hand, Gijon centre-back Jean-Sylvian Babin remains sidelined due to a calf strain, however, the hosts face no other injury worries ahead of the home tie.
Sevilla look to make it four wins on the trot, when they travel to face strugglers Sporting Gijon at the Estadio El Molinón on Saturday afternoon.
Los Rojiblancos come into the match after a moral boosting 1-0 home win over Atletico Madrid last week, through a Steven N’Zonzi strike to inflict a first defeat of the season for Diego Simeone’s side.
As a result, it climbs Jorge Sampaoli’s side up to second in La Liga within one point of leaders Real Madrid who take on Alaves.
Meanwhile, hosts Sporting Gijon ended their five match losing streak after a goalless draw away to Granada last weekend. It leaves them in the bottom three on eight points, with their last victory going back to early September during the 2-1 victory over Leganes.
However, Gijon post a good record against their weekend opponents having won the last three home ties against Sevilla, and have lost only once in the last six meetings at the El Molinon, which makes the hosts slight favourites come Saturday.
