Sports news - Get €5 FreeBet - Valencia’s fans are not having the happiest moments as they saw their team make it four matches without a win when they are all set to host Sevilla on Wednesday. Peter Lim, one of the biggest shareholders at Salford City, is not very popular in Spain and he again made the Valencia fans disappointed before this season when he fired manager Marcelino Garcia Toral – a decision that has not proved specifically successful so far.
Marcelino fell out with Lim and Albert Celades, his replacement, has done just an ordinary job up to now – which is maybe better than expected taking into consideration that players all refused to join a press conference with him less than a week after his appointment to demonstrate their unity behind his predecessor. Now Celades goes up against Julen Lopetegui, whom he helped with the Spain national team and Real Madrid, with the Sevilla manager presently redeveloping his image quite successfully after his ill-fated move to the Bernabeu last year.
Sevilla are just one point off the top of La Liga table and have a flawless record in what is certainly a pretty easy Europa League group, with three wins to nil so far. However, what Valencia has going for them is a strong domestic home record this term, undefeated in five matches, and impressive head-to-head stats against Sevilla and the draw we are supporting here would reserve both of those while also extending their winless run in all competitions to four games.
This match is a hard one to judge. Sevilla is in somewhat better form, but Valencia are not an easy team at the Mestalla. We are going to get splinters, but we are sitting on the fence and backing the draw at odds of 12/5. Neither side seems to be in a great form, despite Sevilla, having back-to-back league wins. So, the draw seems like the most expected result.
