Maribor vs Sevilla: In one of the encounters of this Wednesday of the Champions’ League group stage 6th round…
The local side Maribor, managed by Darko Milanic, and Sevilla, managed by Eduardo Berizzo, face off in Maribor, at the Ljudski vry stadium, with the hosts having 2 points and sitting in 2nd place, while the visitors have 8 points and sit in 4th place of this group E.
On the previous match, the Spanish side won, at home, 3-0 against the Slovenians.
The home side comes into this match already without any possibility of advancing, be it for the next stage of the Champions League or the Europa League’s knockout stage, considering they are 4 points behind Spartak Moscow, who is in 3rd place, when there are only 3 points up for grabs.
In any way, the team has already conquered some important points on this edition of the Champions League, drawing with the Russian champions on the 1st and 5th round.
The team is coming off a series of some different results, getting 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss on their last 5 matches.
As for the visitors, they need, to be sure, to win in Slovenia, in order to ensure their qualification for the Champions’ League round of 16, since, if they finish with the same points as Spartak, they are eliminated due to the head-to-head record between the two.
In any way, the team, in case they win, will ensure their presence on the next stage of the competition and can even reach the top spot in the group, if Liverpool fail to win over the Russians.
The team is coming off an excellent streak of results, only losing 1 out of their last 9 matches.
Maribor vs Sevilla – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match where the Spanish are practically forced to win, I believe, still, on a close match, namely due to the fact that Maribor are playing at home and wanting, certainly, to finish their European presence in the best way and, if possible, even make Sevilla’s life harder on this European competition.
This way, I see a close match on the first half and, this way, not many goals.
