Sevilla play host to Valladolid in La Liga soccer action from the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Friday afternoon.
Sevilla come into this match in 4th place, sitting on 53 points with a record of 14 wins, 11 draws and 6 losses after a 3rd straight draw in the form of a 2-2 tie with Villarreal in their last match. In the tie with Villarreal, Sevilla fell behind just 18 minutes in, but Sergio Escudero would pull a goal back for Sevilla six minutes before the half. Sevilla would pull back in front in the fourth minute of second-half stoppage time, but Sevilla would use their 62% possession in the second half to their advantage as Munir El Haddadi tied the game at two in the 63rd minute. Despite both teams best efforts to edge ahead, neither side would find a winner by the full time whistle. Tomas Vaclik is Sevilla’s top goalkeeper, conceding 0.98 goals per 90 minutes with 12 clean sheets in 30 league appearances this season.
Valladolid on the other side of the coin, enter this one in 15th place, tied for points with Real Betis on 34 points with a record of 7 wins, 13 draws and 11 losses after a 1-1 tie with Getafe in their last match. In the draw with Getafe, Valladolid fell behind in the 41st minute, but were quick to equalize from the penalty spot late in first half stoppage time off of the boot of Enes Unal. Valladolid would have the lone shot on goal between either side in the second half, but they wouldn’t convert and in the end, the spoils were shared between the two sides. Unal’s goal ties him with Sergi Guardiola for the team lead with 6 goals this season while both Guardiola and Unal along with Oscar Plano and Nacho, lead Valladolid with two assists this season. Jordi Masip is Valladolid’s top goalkeeper, conceding one goal per 90 minutes with 9 clean sheets in 30 league appearances this season.
The draw is definitely tempting as Sevilla’s last three matches have all ended square and Valladolid is tied with Atletico Madrid for the most draws in La Liga this season with 13. The two sides combined have a whopping 24 draws this season, which is why I’m going to defy common logic here. Sevilla is just the much better team here, and Valladolid have failed to score in any of their last three head-to-head meetings with Sevilla. I think Sevilla’s defense rules the day here, so I’ll side with Sevilla to win with Both Teams to Score – No for decent plus money in this one as I see it finishing 1-0 or 2-0 in favor of Sevilla.
