Qarabag vs Sevilla Prediction
Sevilla is a strong team despite the fact that they are visiting and lack the ground advantage. Qarabag came into the league from facing weaker teams in an inferior league when compared to La Liga.
There are more chances for Sevilla to score, but there will not be high scoring as they have scored only 23 of their 63 goals slotted in the away games. Moreover, the Azerbaijan outfits will not probably have much chance to score against the Spanish counterparts.
The host has been lossless for the past three home games, while Sevillistas are unbeaten for the previous four away matches in major competitions. Along with that, the visitor has managed to record three clean sheets from the last three away games. Besides that, three of the last four overall games that they won was in away matches.
As such, the match will be in control of the visitors and the number of goals produced will not be over 3.5 goals as the scoring will be poor from both sides.
