Sevilla Team News
The season started terribly for one of the Spanish biggest clubs. Sevilla won only one point from the opening four games in La Liga and suffered a heavy defeat against Barcelona a couple of days ago.
They sold two key centre-backs in Diego Carlos and Jules Kounde and failed to add adequate cover. They are struggling in the defensive aspect and concede goals too easy. Sevilla often had luck with a draw for the Champions League and usually manage to qualify for the knockout round but this season it will be much more difficult because one of their opponents is Manchester City and the second is Borussia Dortmund.
The games from the second to the fifth round will be a key to Sevilla. They will play against FC Kobenhavn, two times against Borussia, and once again against Kobenhavn in these four rounds.
Sevilla conceded eight goals and they played against teams like Osasuna, Real Valladolid, and UD Almeria in the first four rounds.
Manchester City Team News
What to say about Manchester City? They are frightening with Erling Haaland! The Norwegian striker already scored 10 goals in the Premier League and it’s the start of September yet. Pep’s team won four games from the opening six in the league. They drew to Newcastle and Aston Villa and both teams showed us that is possible to play against The Citizens and to stay undefeated.
But a very few teams this season will manage to do that. Man City is one of the favourites to win the Champions League this season and after we see how Erling Haaland adapted quickly to this team, the odds are dropping on them, for sure.
Manchester City is in the middle of a very difficult schedule if something like this exists for them. The run of their fixtures in the next couple of weeks is Sevilla, Tottenham, Borussia, Wolverhampton away, and Man Utd in a big derby.
Pep must rotate, for sure, but his bench is too strong and it won’t be a problem.
They were in the same group in the 2015/16 season of the Champions League. Man City won both games 2- and 1-3.
Team News and Injuries
Seville: Jesus Corona, Marcao, Karim Rekik, and Oliver Torres are out.
Manchester City: Kalvin Philips is questionable. Aymeric Laporte is injured.
Sevilla vs. Manchester City Prediction
Man City is a big favourite here and we expect them to win all three points at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium. Seville is struggling and on the other side, we have a team who is brutal at the start of the season.
Prediction: Man City to win and over 2.5 goals
