Tip Reasoning

  • Sevilla have won seven of their last eight competitive home games.
  • Sevilla have won only one of those seven by greater than a one-goal margin.
  • Red Bull Salzburg have scored ten goals in their five Champions League away games since the start of last season.

Sevilla are not known for piling on the goals when in leading positions and it looks like Julen Lopetegui will adopt a cautious approach for the visit of Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League this week.

The Austrian champions have been in brilliant form with ten wins from ten competitive matches this season, extending their winning run to 15 games.

Yet a trip to the Sanchez Pizjuan can be a daunting affair and Sevilla’s proud record at home, having lost only two of their last 17 European games there, makes the visitors still seem unappealing.

Lopetegui’s side can be miserly at home and have won 11 of their last 15 games played in Andalusia with a clean sheet.

Only two of their 13 home wins in 2021 have come with their opponents also on the scoresheet so a Sevilla win with both teams to score doesn’t appear highly probable either.

The hosts had a free weekend because their clash with Barcelona was postponed and should be fresh, albeit maybe lacking some rhythm for this group game.

Therefore we recommend taking Salzburg with a two goal advantage on the handicap as it would be somewhat surprising of the hosts were able to win by more than one goal.

Only one of Sevilla’s last seven victories has been by such a margin and with that bet also covers the possibility of Salzburg somehow pulling off a shock away result.

We’re backing a 2-1 win for the La Liga side because of their great home form and the excellent scoring record Salzburg possess in Champions League away games.
