League: Spanish La Liga
Sevilla – Valencia
Pick: Sevilla to Win
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
- Sevilla have lost just one of their last ten La Liga games, winning seven.
- Los Palanganas have won nine of their last 11 home matches, keeping clean sheets in seven.
- Valencia are without a win in their last eight away trips, losing six.
- Sevilla have won the last three meetings between the sides.
Sevilla to confirm superiority over Los Che
An Eden Hazard stoppage time goal cruelly denied Sevilla victory at Real Madrid on Sunday evening, though Los Palanganas shouldn’t be too deterred when they take on Valencia at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this week.
Sevilla’s 2-2 draw at Estadio Alfredo di Stefano marked yet another fine display from Julen Lopetegui’s side, who have been in outstanding form throughout the past two months, save for their disappointing 0-1 reverse against Athletic Bilbao here last time out.
Sevilla have won nine of their last 11 at home though, and it’s easy to see why they’re strong odds-on favourites to dispatch a Valencia side who have picked up just two points from their last eight away trips.
Los Che returned to winning ways with a 3-0 home win over Valladolid at the weekend in their first outing since Javi Gracia departed the club, but they should be outclassed this Wednesday by an improving Sevilla outfit who have also won the last three encounters between the teams without conceding.
With the hosts also keeping clean sheets in seven of their last 11 starts in Andalusia, a Sevilla win to nil is the confident selection for this week’s action at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and we’re also backing Lopetegui’s charges to seal the points via a comfortable 2-0 score-line.
