Sevilla vs Malaga: Preview and Predictions

Sevilla vs Malaga
Primera Division
Date: 30th September 2017
Kick off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Sevilla will have a fantastic chance to bounce back after the last weekend’s defeat to Atletico Madrid at Estadio wanda Metropolitano (2-0).

Los Rojiblancos host the struggling Malaga side in the second game of the day on Saturday at EStadipo Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.


The man who led Celta Vigo to the semifinal of Europa League in the last term, Eduardo Berizzo, is off to a decent start of his reign in Andalusia.

Sevilla hold the third position with 13 points from six rounds in Primera Division and they top their respective Champions League group with four points from two games against Liverpool and Maribor.

Wissam Ben Yedder is the man to look after as the French striker bagged a hat-trick in a demolishing 3-0 victory over the Slovenian side in mid-week.


Ben Yedder & company should have plenty of room for delivering in the final third on Saturday given Malaga’s disastrous defensive form at the start of the new campaign.

The visitors allowed as many as eight goals in last two fixtures with Valencia and Athletic Bilbao and they actually collected no more than a single point in opening six matches (only Alaves sit behind them in the league standings at the moment).

Sevilla vs Malaga: Head to head

Both sides have 13 victories ahead of their 25th H2H meeting. Sevilla had a run of four wins and a draw in five matches before Malaga picked up a 4-2 victory on the opening day of May this year (their previous encounter).

Over 2.5 goals “came in” in four of last five head to head matches between the two teams.

Sevilla vs Malaga: Prediction

This is going to be a one-way street from the very first whistle and we feel Sevilla could bag four or more goals with ease past the struggling defensive line of Malaga’s.

You won’t make a mistake backing the hosts to win in handicap while Over bets are also more than welcome given the circumstances.
