Espanyol vs Sevilla: In one of this Saturday’s matches that opens up this round of encounters counting towards La Liga’s 20th round
The local side Espanyol and the visiting side Sevilla face off in Barcelona, at the Cornellá-El Prat Stadium, on a match between two teams that have already faced each other once this season, with the match played in Sevilla ending with a 1-1 draw in August of 2017.
The home side is in 14th place, with 24 points conquered, while the visiting side is in 6th place with 29 points.
The home side is making an acceptable season so far, namely in terms of La Liga, being on the bottom half of the league table, it’s certain, but being able to climb a lot on the league table in case they manage to win in this match, since.
For example, the last European qualification spot is only 5 points away. The team has one of the worst offensive records of the competition, but, still, they are very consistent on the defensive point of view.
As for Sevilla, they are also making a relatively positive campaign so far, at least domestically, being on the European qualification zone going into this round and being able to reach the Champions League’s qualification spots in case they are able to win in Barcelona.
The team, still, is coming off a negative streak of matches, in La Liga, not winning since almost two months ago.
Espanyol vs Sevilla – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Against a very defensively consistent Espanyol, namely at home, and with a Sevilla that isn’t on their best moment of form of the season.
I see an encounter with few or even zero goals.
