Sevilla v Celta Vigo Preview, Primera La Liga, Saturday, 2nd November 2013

Sevilla are have had a difficult start to their new campaign managing to win just three of their opening eleven matches played and although it looked like Unai Emery’s side were starting to turn the corner having remained unbeaten for seven matches, but that record got completely destroyed midweek with their 7-3 thrashing by Real Madrid and confidence of the players must of taken a huge hit as a result.

Celta Vigo have had an even worse start to their new season and managed just two victories from their eleven matches played so far, but they did show plenty of fight and determination in their 3-0 defeat at home against Barcelona midweek as many people thought Barcelona would end up winning the game by a cricket score and although they were beaten, the players confidence will only have increased and with every point crucial to avoid falling back into the bottom three of the league table, Celta Vigo will certainly fancy their chances after seeing their hosts completely destroyed midweek.

Sevilla v Celta Vigo Match Betting Odds Market.

Sevilla will no doubt still be recovering from their midweek destruction by Real Madrid in which they conceded 7 times, but they do now have a chance to bounce straight back to winning ways up against a side that has only managed 2 victories all season, so no real surprise to see the online bookmakers having the hosts the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of 4/7 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw has not happened in any of the previous 5 games these two sides have played, so some would argue that one is clearly overdue and this could be worth a small saver at a current best price of 10/3 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) as the goal stats don’t see many goals being scored in this one.

Celta Vigo have only won 2 games from their opening 11 matches played, but both of those victories have come away from home and with a decent performance against Barcelona last time out the players will definitely fancy their chances in this game and at a current best price of 11/2 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) this does look a bit overpriced for me.

Sevilla v Celta Vigo Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Both sides will desperately want to win this game but on the flip side of the coin, neither side will want to see another so I am expecting a very tight game that despite the bookmakers prices could go either way on the night.

Sevilla do have the important home advantage and with having more players in their squad scoring goals this season I can see why the online bookmakers have made the hosts such a short price to win this game as before their midweek humilation by Real Madrid, Sevilla were on a 7 game unbeaten run, so that has to be respected.

The goal stats suggest only 1 or 2 goals to be scored in this one, so betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Total Match Goals and Time of First Goal could be worth having a closer look at for some additional value.
