The Sevilla captain may be in need of some rest after he was seen to be out of form during their recent match.
The ever present Sevilla captain, Jesus Navas, who played full-time during their draw with Real Betis, could use some time away from the pitch following his out-of-form performance during this season. Based on his performance against Betis, it can be concluded that lack of rest and pre-season preparation alongside his hip discomfort are starting to take a toll on Navas.
In December Navas missed three games with Sevilla and after his return to the team’s squad things weren’t the same for him, but his persistence to keep playing instead of taking a break has been giving him major difficulties. Ahead of their Copa del Rey clash, Julen Lopetegui has to decide whether to put more pressure on Navas or bring Aleix Vidal instead.
