Team News: Sevilla
The Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game with a fully healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Valencia
Valencia boss José Bordalás has not got a full squad to pick from. Carlos Soler (Muscle Injury), José Gayà (Muscle Injury), Thierry Correia (Muscle Injury) and Denis Cheryshev (Knee Injury) miss out here.
Our thinking is that Sevilla look likely to score a couple of goals when they face Valencia, who may well struggle to break down their defence.
Accordingly, we see a pretty comfortable 2-0 margin for Sevilla at the end of the match.
