VAL vs SEV LA LIGA FOOTBALL MATCH PREDICTION- TEAM NEWS

Sevilla vs Valencia

La Liga

After going toe-to-toe with Barcelona in the first few months of the 2017-18 La Liga season, to losing six games on the trot in January and February this year which comprehensively put their Champions League qualification under serious trouble, Valencia fans have experienced the high and the low in a span of just few months.

But the Oranges seemed to have successfully weathered the storm after winning four times in their last five La Liga games, meaning a win against Sevilla in tomorrow’s encounter will definitely nail down the 4th place for the visitors.

Sevilla, on the other hand, have too many competitions to focus on in the next one month. They have a massive 2nd leg coming up against Manchester united in the Champions League and a Copa del Rey final against Barcelona to ponder upon, and this fixture against Valencia which may seal their Champions League aspirations for the next year, the Andalusians could have done without so many important fixtures in a short span of time.

Sevilla:

Sebastien Corchia will be missing the action due to a persistent groin injury. Jesus Navas is another big name player who is expected to miss the action due to the muscular injury he suffered last month. As a result, Miguel Layun should be preferred at right-back.

PROBABLE XI: Rico (GK), layun, Lenglet, Mercado, Escudero, Vazquez, N’Zonzi, Banega, Sarabia, Muriel, Correa

 

Valencia:

The visitors will certainly be without the services of Ezequiel Garay, Jose Gaya, and Santi Mina. While winger, Andreas Pereira has been declared fit but we are expecting him to come off the bench in this crucial match.

PROBABLE XI: Neto (GK), Gaya, Murillo, Paulista, Vezo, Guedes, Parejo, Kondogbia, Soler, Moreno, Zaza

  2. This game favors the hosts as Sevilla have won four of their last six home games, while Valencia have won five of their last six home games against Sevilla.
  3. Valencia boasts some shooter in their ranks as no team has scored more goals from outside the box than the Oranges- eight goals.

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

It’s difficult to call considering the nature of this fixture as it favors the home team. But the current form of both the teams shows that Valencia are favorites in this match. But it’s Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan where Sevilla have lost only two games in their last 26 games, so backing a score draw seems a good bet. A 1-1 prediction from our side.
