Sevilla v Valencia Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday 16th February 2014

Sevilla head into this game having had an average season by their standards and currently occupy 7th position in the Primera La Liga table having secured 31pts from their 23 matches played, however their form has not been great recently and have not managed a single victory in any of their last 6 games of which they have lost the last 3 and it will be vital for Unai Emery’s side to obtain all 3pts from this game on sunday night if they are to keep hopes alive of a European place for next season.

Valencia have also had an average season and will no doubt be extremely disappointed at their current 9th place position in the league table, but they have been in slightly better form than their hosts and do head into this game having won their last 2 matches on the bounce, so confidence of the players and fans will no doubt be high of securing another victory come sunday night.

Sevilla v Valencia Team News

Sevilla Team News:

The hosts will be without defender Cicinho who is still out recovering from a cruciate ligament injury and fellow defender Diogo Figueiras who is suspened. Other than those two players though, manager Unai Emery will have a full squad to choose his starting lineup from for this game.

Valencia Team News:

The visitors have only one casualty for this game with midfielder Oriol Romeu out with injury until the middle of march. Manager Pizzi has a strong squad to choose his starting lineup from which looks likely to consist of 29 year old Brazilian Jonas who is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 9 leading the attack up front.

98 goals have been scored in the previous 40 meetings between the two clubs which provides us with an average overall goals per game statistic of 2.45 and with 50 goals scored from the previous 20 games played at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, we are provided with an average goals per game stastic of 2.50.

Both averages are below the 3.00 goals per game threshold, which indicates that this game is likely only to see mabye one or two goals scored on sunday night.

Sevilla v Valencia Match Betting Odds Market.

Sevilla have had a rough few weeks lately and will be desperate to pick up their first win since the 5th of January this year when beating Getafe 3-0 at home and do face a difficult game here against a strong Valencia side, but the online bookmakers seem to think the hosts will win this game as they currently have them priced up as the clear favourites to win this game at odds of 11/10 with Totepool (£10 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw is currently a best price of 13/5 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) but with none of the previous five games between these two clubs having finished all square and only five of the previous forty games having finished level, it does seem an unlikely outcome.

Valencia are as big as 13/5 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) to win this game on sunday night and for me that looks great value considering they are the better side in form and head into this game having won their last two games in succession.Customers).

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

It does surprise me to see the online bookmakers have Sevilla priced up as the clear favourites to win this game as they have struggled in recent weeks and last won a game back on the 5th January, so it would take a lot of faith to put your money on them winning this match at their low odds.

Valencia however head into this game having won their last two games on the bounce and will be fully aware another victory on sunday night would put them above their hosts in the league table and closer to a European place for next season and for me they look tremendous value here.

The average goals per game statistics are not expecting this game to see much in the way of goals being scored on sunday night, so betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score NO could also offer up some additional value, but for me the odds on Valencia are too good to ignore here.
