Spanish La Liga
Sevilla DNB to beat Malaga @ 1.60 (888Sport) – 3.5 points
Sevilla travel away to Malaga for their first game of the season, looking forward to starting off the campaign with an early victory to put pressure on their fellow top 4 contenders. While people will look at Sevilla form and think that they are actually going to lose this game, but the fact of the matter is Unai Emery’s side has been playing some entertaining & attacking football, while also playing some strong opponents to get in shape for this season.
Sevilla have sold of a few players like Carlos Bacca, Aleix Vidal, Gerard Deulofeu & Stephan M’Bia among their key players who made a big difference for them during last seasons run for 5th spot and winning the Europa League.They have bought in some able replacements with the likes of N’Zonzi, Kakuta, Immobile, Adil Rami as well as completing a permanent signing of Aspas. Sevilla’s transfers will give more opportunities for Kevin Gameiro to start up front to prove his worth, as he was limited by chances last season. He showed whenever he got an opportunity to start; he used to deliver the goods.
Malaga have been focussing on maintaing their books and as a result sold players with 16 million pounds, and brought incoming worth 4 million pounds. Malaga have not been able to have a decent pre-season as they came to the UAE and had friendlies with some of the clubs, who were also in the middle of their off-season. They have a lack of options up front with Amrabat, Cop & Charles as forwards up front; who don’t put the fear in their opponents towards securing goals against them. Defensively Malaga showed weaknesses last year, and with the absence of Wellington due to suspension, it adds a bit of pressure on their other defenders.
Backing Sevilla on the Draw No Bet is something of great value, and I am definitely nailing on this one to win tonight.
