Salzburg vs Sevilla: Prediction and Betting Tips
— Sevilla FC (@SevillaFC_ENG) December 6, 2021
A win is needed by Salzburg to qualify for the UCL knockout stage
There are many possibilities and potential outcomes for this match and the overall scenario for Group G. However, one thing is for sure, the winner will qualify for the next round. Hence, Salzburg need to bounce back from the two defeats they suffered in the last two rounds. Moreover, because of those defeats, the Red Bulls lost their spot at the top. Hence, and in order to stay away from any complicated permutations, Salzburg need to win.
In the last two seasons, Salzburg finished third in the group stage and went on to play in the Europa League. However, coach Matthias Jaissle will urge his team to produce a performance to beat Sevilla. Notably, Salzburg’s last win against a Spanish side was in the 2016/17 season when they beat Sociedad and they will be targeting a similar result on Wednesday.
Sevilla chasing three points on the road
Sevilla find themselves in a similar situation with the Spanish in third spot having collected six points courtesy of a win and three draws. In effect, the Rojiblancos can’t settle for less than three points if they want to stay in the UCL. However, the other match’s result between Lille and Wolfsburg will have a significant impact on the final standings of this group.
Regarding Sevilla’s recent form, their first win of the group stages came at the right time as they beat Wolfsburg 2-0. Since then Sevilla lost to Real Madrid and beat Villarreal in La Liga and beat Cordoba in the Copa Del Rey. Additionally, all of Rojablanco’s last eight wins but one was accompanied by a clean sheet – a record that suggests Sevilla will be very tough to break down again on Wednesday.
Salzburg vs Sevilla Prediction
Both Salzburg and Sevilla will start Wednesday’s contest with their destiny in their own hands. If any of them lose, then they have to wait for Lille to beat Wolfsburg. Thus it is better to rely on themselves and play for the win.
Certainly, Sevilla’s experience in European competitions makes them the favorites to win this match. As a result, the bookies are favoring Lopetegui’s team to win and paying 2.36. According to stats, Sevilla have a 60% chance of winning this match.
To sum up, considering that Sevilla have not lost in eight straight away matches in the UCL, we will back an away win. As for our second prediction, we will back a double chance outcome combined with over 1.5 goals.
