Real Valladolid vs Sevilla predictions, H2H and match preview for this Sunday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis and predicted line-ups as Sergio’s side aim to extend their unbeaten start at home.
Real Valladolid vs Sevilla Preview
The late Sunday game comes from the Jose Zorrilla and sees Real Valladolid hoping to frustrate another of the top sides. Sevilla head north in good form and fresh from their derby win at Betis a fortnight ago. They will though realise that these are the kind of games they may need to win if they are going to go the whole way and finish in the top four this term.
Valladolid will be determined to prevent that from happening and they’ve already taken points of both Madrid giants this season. Indeed they are still undefeated at home and that will really encourage Sergio whose side picked up more points on their travels than on their own patch last term. Defensively they’ve been outstanding in front of their own fans with 3 straight home clean sheets heading into this.
Sevilla will therefore know that they will need to make the most of any chances that do come their way here and that has been a bit of a problem this term. However the clinical way in which Luuk de Jong converted to net the winner in the derby will have done him the world of good with the general consensus being that Sevilla are a top striker away from being a really strong side.
The visitors should have a clean bill of health here. They are expected to go with Oliver Torres in midfield again, with the former Atleti man perhaps surprisingly currently ahead of Joan Jordan in the eyes of Julen Lopetegui. Valladolid should also basically be at full strength although they do have a minor worry over the fitness of centre-back Kiko Olivas.
Real Valladolid vs Sevilla Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Sevilla have won 4 of their 7 away games so far in La Liga which is a really strong start on the road for Julen Lopetegui’s new-look side. However Real Valladolid are tough opponents that won’t be afraid to employ a cautious approach even at home and they look capable of getting something from this one.
