La Liga: Sevilla vs Real Valladolid – Match Prediction and Betting Tips
In the second round of the La Liga game tonight, we see Sevilla play host to Real Valladolid to get over its devastating opening-day loss. Last weekend, Julen Lopetegui’s team suffered a defeat to Osasuna, while Villarreal defeated their guests upon their return to Spain’s top division.
Sevilla completed the previous season on a negative note, eventually finishing fourth after maintaining a title challenge for most of the campaign, just somewhat trailing Real Madrid. The Los Hispalenses were, at least, able to maintain their position in the top four and secure a place in the upcoming Champions League. Group stage as they finished a point behind third-placed Atletico Madrid and three behind second-placed Barcelona, despite losing out on the spot in the Europa League in the round of 16.
Before the new season began, they had a mixed preseason, drawing with Sporting Lisbon and Tottenham Hotspur, winning over Angers and Cadiz, before losing to Leicester City, and taking a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the Emirates Cup final.
Sevilla welcomes Real Valladolid, who have a brutal opening schedule and are looking for their first points after being promoted back to the top league. Throughout the previous season, the Blanquivioletas remained in the promotion hunt. They still seemed confined to the playoffs with only four games left and a five-point gap to close to reaching the top two after leaving La Liga in the 2020–21 season.
However, Pacheta’s team narrowly missed out on automatic promotion on the final day by defeating Huesca 3-0 in the pivotal game to make it four straight wins. Goals were scored at the Estadio Jose Zorrilla by Shon Weissman, Gonzalo Plata, and Alvaro Aguado.
The Blanquivioletas had a successful preseason, winning on penalties against Lazio and drawing with them. They began the La Liga season against Villarreal. The visitors ultimately took the lead through Nicolas Jackson, and Alex Baena’s late brace clinched the triumph after Pacheta’s squad had kept the game 0-0 in the first half.
Real Valladolid will be anxious to quickly increase their point count to avoid slipping further behind the bottom of the standings as the league continues. They still have another challenging test against the top four candidates. Real Valladolid wants to establish itself in the top division in the following seasons.
Sevilla, who was tough to beat towards the end of the previous season, had a dismal start to the new campaign. Before the beginning of this season, they had gone six league games without a loss.
Sevilla’s home La Liga record reveals that they have only won one of their last four league contests at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
In reality, they’ve only triumphed in two of their last six La Liga home games—victories over Granada and Athletic Bilbao. Sevilla’s last three home league games have featured under 2.5 goals, according to trends. Real Valladolid travels to the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán after losing to Villarreal 3-0 at home the previous weekend.
After being demoted after the 2020–21 season, it was their first match back in the top division, but Real Valladolid didn’t seem to have changed. After stopping Villarreal at 0-0 for 45 minutes, they lost the game by giving up three goals in the second half. Real Valladolid has now dropped all five of their La Liga games dating back to the 2020–21 season after their loss against Villarreal.

According to team news, Thomas Delaney, a midfielder for Sevilla, may miss out on the game owing to a concussion. He is the lone host player with a question mark heading into this game. The injured Gonzalo Plata, Jawad El Yamiq, Monchu, and Shon Weissman are not travelling with Real Valladolid. They also question Sergio Escudero’s physical fitness.
Sevilla is the overwhelming favorite to win this game and earn all three points, even though they may not keep scoreless. Both teams should score, and the hosts should prevail by a single goal.
