Atletico Madrid had an excellent 2012-13 season finishing third in the table and defeating their rivals Real Madrid to win the Copa Del Rey. After a summer that saw their best player sold to AS Monaco, it's time for Atletico to show they're ready to stay among the league's top clubs.
Both sides sold their leading scorers in the summer and should debut their replacements in the form of Kevin Gameiro for Sevilla and David Villa for Atletico. Both players will be under heavy pressure to perform and fill the big shoes left by their predecessors, but they are both proven goal scorers and should be up to the task.
Sevilla injuries and suspensions
Out: Daniel Carriço (thigh), José Antonio Reyes (knee), Fernando Navarro (suspended), Juan Cala (suspended).
