Los Palanganas are also undefeated in their last four home games in La Liga having four consecutive victories. 
Julen Lopetegui, the Sevilla manager, revealed the secret to their current form after discussing their clash against Granada. 
"'It wasn't comfortable despite us playing a very good game. They improved in the second half," Lopetegui said. 
"And we lost our composure a bit but we were very good in the first half, extraordinary I'd say, against a team who always compete very well.'
"There is no secret. There is work behind the scenes and players with incredible heart and ambition. The players are the key. You can say what you want. We will continue to play with our game-to-game mentality in the hope of making history."
