After the lockdown, very few people or indeed nobody could have predicted how Sevilla would return to competitive action. Coaching staff had to work with their squads from home, an unprecedented move, so every club had to guess how they would keep their sides in top shape.
Although there are still two matches to go and the Europa League next month, it is safe to say that Julen Lopetegui and his coaches got their approach spot on. Although the demands are brutal, and the fact that every team are going into the final week of the league season with difficulties, Sevilla FC are definitely one of the in-form sides in Spain.
In fact, Julen Lopetegui's men are one of four teams in LaLiga Santander who are unbeaten since the league resumed last month. They are also on a 13-match unbeaten run in the league, which is only bettered by Atlético de Madrid, who last lost in Matchday 22, one week before Sevilla's most recent defeat. Julen Lopetegui's side have also won four straight league matches, the first time that has happened since the Basque manager took over. A win in San Sebastián would equal both Jorge Sampaoli (16/17) and Unai Emery's (14/15) numbers.
