Sevilla (DWWWW) will take on Valencia (WLWDL) at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, Sevilla in round 38 of the Spanish La Liga Santander on Sunday, July 19, 2020.
Sevilla is the only team besides Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid that is yet to concede any La Liga defeat since league restart. Sevilla has kept a clean sheet in four of their last five games, which has helped them extend their unbeaten La Liga run to 14 fixtures, the longest in their history. Finishing in third remains a possibility, but scoring only one first-half goal in four suggests they start slowly. Sevilla has been keeping a stunning form since league restart, recording 5 wins and 5 draws with zero losses conceded. Coming into this game in the 4th position with 67 points, Sevilla has recorded 18 wins, 13 draws, and 6 losses.
Yassine Bounou will stay in front of the net for Sevilla. Bounou is the team’s second goalie, and he has allowed 3 goals in 5 appearances, an average of 1.5 goals allowed per 90 minutes. He has also recorded 15 saves and 2 clean sheets. Sevilla’s top scorer, Lucas Ocampos, will lead the team’s forward group. Ocampos has scored seven goals across Sevilla’s previous eight La Liga home fixtures, including four penalties. He has recorded 14 goals and 3 assists in 32 appearances.
On the other hand, Valencia got their third win since league restart after thrashing bottom-placed Espanyol by a lone goal. Valencia is coming into the game in the 8th position with 53 points, one point behind the final Europa League spot occupied by Getafe. In their last game, Kevin Gameiro scored the only goal for Valencia in the 17th-minute. Valencia’s goalie’s exquisite saves denied every attempt made by Espanyol. Valencia recorded 48% ball possession and 9 goal attempts, compared to Espanyol’s 18 goal attempts.
The probable goalie for Valencia is Jasper Cillessen. Cillessen has allowed 30 goals in 24 appearances, an average of 1.3 goals allowed per 90 minutes. He has recorded 85 saves and 5 clean sheets. Key player to watch out for in Valencia’s starting lineup is Dani Parejo. Valencia has avoided defeat in only seven LL away matches this season, and Dani Parejo recorded a goal in three. In total, the Spanish forward has recorded 8 goals and 3 assists in 34 appearances.
In six previous meetings between Sevilla and Valencia, three ended as a stalemate while Valencia won the remaining three meetings. Meanwhile, Sevilla’s last win against Valencia was in 2016. Sevilla has recorded 9 wins out of 18 home games, which is an impressive stat. In comparison, Valencia has registered one of the worst traveling records in the league with only 3 wins in 18 away games, which puts them in the 17th position.
