Sevilla vs Espanyol Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Sevilla are close to building from scratch for the La Liga 2017-18 season, and the club take on Espanyol in the opening game of the season. Jorge Sampaoli’s departure from the club has resulted in the appointment of former Celta de Vigo manager Eduardo Berizzo. The club has also seen a huge turnaround of players, as the likes of Vitolo and Vicente Iborra have left the club. Sevilla have spent a sizeable sum on Luis Muriel and Simon Kjaer. Espanyol have had a relatively quiet summer, as manager Quique Flores hopes to build on last season’s eighth place finish.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Espanyol come into the match with a very poor record at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. The club has failed to win the last six away games against Sevilla in all competitions. Meanwhile, Sevilla have been able to achieve a 100% win record in these games. Despite the concerns surrounding the presence of a new manager and the departure of some key players, Sevilla are in a great position to continue with this winning run. Espanyol had a mediocre away form last season with just seven wins from 19. I would go with a win for Sevilla. Four in the last six games between these two teams at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan has produced over 2.5 goals. Last season, Espanyol conceded 26 on the road while Sevilla scored 39 at home. I would go with this game to produce over 2.5 goals.

Sevilla Preview

Sevilla were hoping to build on the brilliant first season under Jorge Sampaoli, but the departure of the manager towards the end of the season brought about a significant change to the plans for the 2017-18 campaign. Eduardo Berizzo has been appointed in his place, but he comes on the back of a mixed campaign with Celta de Vigo. Sevilla have also lost some key players like Stevan Jovetic and Vitolo over the summer. The duo had contributed a combined 13 goals and 15 assists last season. Wissam Ben Yedder, though, remains at the club. He was club’s top scorer with 18 goals in 42 appearances.

Sevilla Team News

Daniel Carrico (hamstring) is the only major injury concern for Sevilla.

Espanyol Preview

Manager Flores has been able to retain much of the squad from last season, but there has been strengthening through signings of Pablo Piatti and Naldo. After a successful loan spell that saw Piatti score 10 and create 11 last season, the club managed to secure his signature on a permanent basis. Espanyol could have finished in the Europa League spots had it not been for a mediocre finish to the season. Still, the eighth place finish is significantly better than the 2015-16 season results when the club only finished 14th in the table. Gerardo Moreno was the top scorer last season with 13 goals in 38 appearances.

Espanyol Team News

Espanyol will be without Oscar Gaitan (cruciate ligament) due to injury. David Lopez (groin), Victor Sanchez (calf), Pau Lopez (concussion), Paco Montanes (leg), Marc Navarro (groin), and Diego Lopez (knee) are doubtful for the game.
