Sevilla were simply destroyed last round at home against Barcelona (lost 4-1). But believe it or not they made their usual game (without holding most of the possession) and even had more attempts at goal.
The only problem is Sevilla are impatient and seem to skip a phase and go directly at trying to score. Many players are involved in the offensive phase but pragmatism lacks completely. They need to create many chances before succeeding in scoring 1 goal.
Defensive players seem to be unable to cope with counters. Every counter against Sevilla can easily turn into a goal. This is actually how Sevilla can be characterized in 2014.
Valencia is doing wonderful lately. After winning away at Barcelona two rounds ago (3-2), Valencia trashed Betis last week (won 5-0). The game was one sided and every-time Betis tried to build something, Valencia successfully destroyed from the incipient stage.
At the moment Sevilla and Valencia are at opposite ends. Sevilla need 5 chances to score 1 goal, while Valencia score without much efforts. Defensively Sevilla are very fragile and concede more than ever, while Valencia can even cope with players like Messi.
Sevilla will welcome back defender Coke who was suspended last round. Valencia will also welcome back a defender from suspension, Ricardo Costa, who can be an important element.
Double chance on Valencia at 4/6 from Paddy Power deserves some medium to high stakes.
