Sevilla vs Chelsea
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 2 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
These two teams are already assured an entry into the knockouts of the Champions League, and all that needs resolution is which of these two will be anointed group champions.
As of now, both teams have the same number of points, and they are expected to win their respective final games in the group stage, against Krasnodar and Rennes.
As such, the winner of this upcoming clash will determine who will end up toppers, and who will have to make do with the second spot.
Both teams have been in terrific form lately – in continental match-ups as well as domestic games, and especially their offenses. And with some of the major European teams not showing their real caliber in the last several months, this is an opportunity for these two to make a deep run into the competition.
By all means expect a fierce encounter, and goals from both teams.
Sevilla vs Chelsea: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a goalless draw, and that has been the sole meeting between these two so far.
- Los Palanganas are on a three-match winning run against other EPL teams, and are on a five-fixture unbeaten run in such matches as well.
- They were unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 16 encounters against other English teams, and they had scored two or more goals in six of these past nine clashes.
- Meanwhile, the Blues were unbeaten in 17 of their preceding 22 meetings against La Liga squads.
Sevilla vs Chelsea: Prediction
Julen Lopetegui’s men recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Krasnodar. In the meantime, Frank Lampard’s men registered a 1-2 win away from home the past game week, against Rennes.
Going on, Los Palanganas are on a five-match winning run, and they had scored a total of 11 goals in the process. They also have lost just once at home all through 2020, and had won ten of their past eleven such appearances as well.
On the other hand, their opposite number are on a 14-match unbeaten run, and even their latest loss had come against the mighty Liverpool. They had also scored two or more goals in six of their last seven fixtures, and they are on a four-fixture winning run on the road – scoring eleven goals in the process.
Taking these stats into account, expect a moderately high-scoring game between these two in-form squads, especially with the top-most spot at stake.
