Sevilla FC vs Valencia Preview

 

Sevilla FC vs Valencia

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Date: 10th March 2018

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

Sevilla have so many commitments towards this end of the season and Montella could be forced into a mini rotation here.

They have a Copa del Rey final date with Barcelona and a Champions League game coming next week.

They don’t have the most convincing home record under Montella as they have won just 2 of their 5 home games with the Italian in charge and they conceded 5 goals in each of their two home games against Atletico Madrid and Real Betis.

They have however, won in 4 of Valencia’s last 5 visits here.

Valencia have slumped to a very poor run of form that has seen them lose six games on the bounce between January and February.

It appeared as though the wheels had come off their bid for Champions League qualification, but they seem to have steadied the ship and a win here against Sevilla who are directly below them could help them nail down 4th position.

A win here would end the race for the top four for teams outside that area at the moment as Valencia would hold an 11 points gap over Sevilla.

Their win over Real Betis last time means they have taken 13 points from their last 5 matches ahead of this game, and their away form sees them taking 1.62 points per game on average this season.
