Sevilla vs Valencia Soccer Prediction
Sevilla have this Saturday, March 10, in the classic against Valencia probably what should be their last chance to seek higher dreams in the Spanish 2017/2018 Championship. The game, which is part of the schedule of the twenty-eighth round, will be held from 12:15 pm (Brasília time) at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, in Seville.
Two consecutive victories against Malaga (1 to 0, away from home) and Athletic Bilbao (2 to 0 in their dominions) kept Sevilla in fifth place in La Liga. Now with 45 points (14 wins, three draws and ten losses). It also served to reduce the disadvantage from ten to eight points, in comparison with Valencia, fourth placed with 53 (16 wins, five ties and six losses).
This duel is worth a lot. Whoever finishes in the top four will have the chance to play in the Champions League next season. Whoever loses, will need to settle for a place in the Europa League.
This situation should cause coach Vicenzo Montella to reflect a lot before setting the team’s lineup for the classic. After all, Sevilla are still in contention for the current season of the continent’s most important club tournament. In the first game, at home, was in the goalless draw with Manchester United. The setting will take place next Tuesday, March 13, in England.
This can cause the coach not to risk putting on the field athletes who are not in full conditions giving them time for recovery aimed at the confrontation in Manchester. The midfielder Jesus Navas (22 games in the Spanish league, one goal) fits in with this possibility. He suffered a concussion in the calf that took him out of the last two matches. It is quite likely that it will not be listed this Saturday earning more time for recovery.
Also in the infirmary are the reserve goalkeeper Juan Soriano (without performances); and defenders Lionel Carole (six games, no goal) and Sebastian Corchia (12 games, no goal).
Since he was eliminated from the King’s Cup and went on to devote himself exclusively to the Spanish Championship, Valencia showed a growth in production. He won four games and drew once.
With this, not only looks down in the fight for the classification for the Champions League, but also up. He has the opportunity to play for Real Madrid in third place, which guarantees a direct place in the group stage. This not only ends with the risk of falling in the qualifiers as it guarantees the millionaire quota of participation in the first phase, which opens space for more contracting in the budget.
In an attempt to return home with three more points, coach Marcelino Garcia Toral has to manage two medical doubts. Uruguayan defender Ezequiel Garay (15 games in the 2017/2018 Spanish Championship, no goal) and Brazilian striker Andreas Pereira (17 goals, one goal) are undergoing injury treatment.
Soccer Prediction of the Day Sevilla vs Valencia
Valencia opted for the strategy of wiping out the cast, which allowed them to invest in better reinforcements. He formed, in this way, a good starting team. However, he did not count a reserve bank capable of filling the absences or promoting the team’s relay at a time when the schedule presented commitments in a row. This led to a drop in income for a club that spent much of the first half of the season in second place.
