Sevilla

Sevilla’s encounter against the defending champion readily resulted to the squad’s thrashing. Atletico slapped them with 4 goals and they barely reacted. The clean sheet was indeed, a major disappointment since it tainted the club’s undefeated streak. It also resulted to a drop in the club’s rank.

 

Nevertheless, the online betting favorite is still a part of La Liga’s elite. So far, their campaign remains strong.

 

Deportivo

Deportivo suffered its 3rd consecutive loss this season. The said defeat resulted to their drop in the rock bottom part of the table.
Considering their differences in team form and depth, it looks like Deportivo will be missing another opportunity to score another 3 points.

 

Possible head turners

Grzegorz Krychowiak is one of Sevilla’s  players that Deportivo should watch out for. The defender has been one of the club’s pillars of strength and it is also through his efforts that Sevilla is able to keep the ball to its side,

 

Deportivo should also keep its eye to Carlos Bacca, the club’s prolific scoring machine. Bacca has already scored 4 goals in its 6 appearances.

 

Prediction

Sevilla 3-0 Deportivo
