Sevilla are still in the running for the La Liga title but their hopes of winning the trophy are slim. Los Rojiblancos are six points behind of Atletico Madrid with just three games left on the fixture list. A win against Valencia on Wednesday night may not be enough to keep Sevilla in the title race. A victory for Atletico Madrid over Real Sociedad would eliminate Sevilla from winning the trophy.

Valencia are nine points above the relegation zone with three matches left to play. Although they are not mathematically safe from relegation, they should have enough distance between themselves and the bottom three.

Sevilla have won three straight matches against Valencia in all competitions. They won each of those three games to nil. The clubs have played twice already this season in league and cup matches. Los Rojiblancos won 3-0 in the Copa del Rey and 1-0 in the teams’ La Liga fixture. Suso’s second half goal led Sevilla to the La Liga win earlier this season as Valencia struggled in the final third against a strong defence.

Sevilla have the league’s third-best defence. They have conceded just 29 times. Valencia have scored 46 goals this term. They have played well at times in front of goal, but struggled in recent seasons versus Sevilla. Seven of the last 10 games between the clubs ended without defeat for Sevilla. However, only four of those seven games ended in wins.

Sevilla vs Valencia Betting Odds

 

Sevilla are at the top of the La Liga form table going into the midweek match against Sevilla at home. Unfortunately for Julen Lopetegui’s team, their last two matches both ended without wins which has cost them in the title race. Sevilla outscored opponents 11-8 during that six-match run. Los Rojiblancos are at odds ½ to win at the end of full-time against Valencia on Wednesday.

Valencia won at the weekend 3-0 against Real Valladolid. They took just six points from the last 18 on offer in the league. Los Che posted a zero-goal difference over the course of those six matches. They tallied 11 goals and conceded 11 times.

Leading sportsbooks have Valencia at odds of 31/5 to win at full-time away to Sevilla. Valencia’s away record has been awful in 2020-21. They have failed to win any of their last six games with five of those matches ending in losses. Los Che have taken just 11 points on the road after 17 games. It is the second-worst total in La Liga.

Valencia’s last win in Seville against Sevilla came during the 2018-19 season. Their last two trips to the Juan Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in all competitions finished in losses, however. Sevilla are coming off of an impressive 2-2 draw against Real Madrid. With the title still up for grabs, they should play well against Valencia once more.
