Sevilla vs Valencia – La Liga : On Saturday’s afternoon, in Sevilla, there will be a taste of the fight for a Champions League’s spot.
The 4th and 5th places of La Liga face off in what might be the end of Sevilla’s expectations of reaching La Liga’s top 4.
8 points separate these two teams and, although difficult, this might be the limit for the Andalusian team, because this week, they will still have to play in the Champions League.
Vincenzo Montella has been managing to maintain Sevilla on the fight for the objectives determined at the start of the season.
Even having gone through a poor period before the Italian manager came into town, it can be said that the Andalusian side has been having a consistent behaviour, even if without the same brilliance of other seasons or such captivating football.
This is a different team, where more maturity is demanded, even due to the competitions they are participating on.
The quarter-finals are still a possibility, maybe more tangible than the 4th place, even if they win this weekend, so they shouldn’t be criticized by some temptation of resting some forces for the match in Manchester.
Sevilla vs Valencia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
As for Valencia, their current challenge is maintaining the rhythm presented at the start of the season, where, on an excessive ambitious way, people talked about the team’s ability to fight for the title with Barcelona.
On the past month, due to a demanding combination of matches, the team got 4 consecutive losses, 2 against Barcelona on the Copa del Rey and, in La Liga, against Real and Atlético de Madrid.
However, they got off that streak very well with 5 unbeaten matches, only dropping points on a draw against Athletic, in Bilbao.
On this clash, it is the competitive consistency of the two teams that will be in question, on a match that is expected to be a quality one, with the Valencians having everything not to lose here.
