SECOND BEST POINTS TALLY IN HISTORY PRIOR TO THE FINAL STRETCH OF THE SEASON

Only in 14/15 did Sevilla have more points after 32 matches

The point earned by Sevilla FC at Mestalla took them to a total of 62 points, their second best tally after 32 matches in history . Only Unai Emery's 14/15 side had a better total than Jorge Sampaoli's side at this stage of the season, with one more point with six matches to play. The current side have in fact earned a point more than Juande Ramos's Sevilla which fought for the league title until the last day, ten seasons ago in 06/07.

With six matches still to play, the aim of qualifying for the Champions League is in Sevilla FC's own hands. Crucial to achieving this objective will be the team's home form, which has been strong this season - just one defeat all campaign. Four of the six remaining matches will be played at the Sánchez-Pizjuán, meaning Nervión will have a big part to play in the final stages of the season.

Jorge Sampaoli's side kept a clean sheet for the eleventh time this league campaign at Mestalla on Sunday, which gives them an average greater than one clean sheet every three matches.
