OverviewThis rivalry began in 1997, after Sevilla had been relegated to the Segunda Division. They played for the first time in December that year at El Madrigal, and it was Villarreal who claimed a comprehensive 3-0 victory. However, since then Los Nervionenses have had the better of the head-to-head and even went eight unbeaten in this fixture between 2003 and 2007.
The two clubs have also met on the European stage, in the Round of 16 in the 2014/15 Europa League. Sevilla had too much for Villarreal and won both legs to secure a 5-2 aggregate triumph – they went on to lift the trophy that season.
