Sevilla 2023/24 Season Predictions

Last season Sevilla were very underwhelming however with some investment this season they should be able to push on and do better than last season. They will be competing in the Champions League this season and although that is detrimental for a lot of teams, we predict they will be knocked out early which will allow them to focus on the La Liga. As a result of this we see them finishing in a European spot, most likely Europa League but they could achieve Champions League.
