Sevilla vs Valencia
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
Los Palanganas are the best team in the Spanish top flight after the three titans, and have been so for the past several decades. They have continued this trend this current season as well, and as of now are placed fourth in the La Liga table.
They have also been scoring goals in huge numbers these days, and especially at home, they have been an even more dominant force.
Moreover, both the Madrid teams have crashed out of the Copa, and this is a great opportunity for the remaining squads to secure a meaningful trophy.
Meanwhile, the Bats used to be one of the strongest teams in the Spanish top flight. But lately they have not been at their best, and are struggling to hold a spot in the mid-table.
They have also been finding it hard to perform well on the road, and on top of that, they have not been impressive at all in road fixtures in recent times.
Finally, Julen Lopetegui’s men also have a good h2h record against this opponent in the last few years.
As such, expect Sevilla to have the upper hand this Wednesday.
Sevilla vs Valencia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns was in December of 2020, and then the Los Palanganas registered a 0-1 victory on the road.
- They are on a two-game winning run, and a three-match unbeaten streak.
- The hosts had recorded 14 of the former 16 overall wins at this venue.
- The home team had kept clean sheets in six of the preceding twelve clashes at this stadium.
Sevilla vs Valencia Prediction
Lopetegui’s men had won ten of their former thirteen match-ups, and they had scored two or more goals in four of the past six fixtures.
At home, they had also won 16 of their past 20 appearances, and they had scored two or more goals in ten of the previous seventeen matches here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 15 of their preceding 19 games, and they have won just four times on the road since January of 2020.
Moreover, over the past few years, Los Palanganas have a great h2h record against this foe, and at this venue, they have been frighteningly dominating.
Taking into account these observations, expect Sevilla to deliver a commendable win this Wednesday.
