In a sentence: Champions league quarter-finalists Sevilla travel to Leganes on Sunday as part of this weekend’s football predictions.

Last time: Sevilla won 2-1 at the Sanchez Pizjuan when these two sides met in La Liga earlier this season. They also beat them 3-1 over two legs in the Copa del Rey.

This time: Sevilla look set to miss out on a top four finish, but they are firm favourites to win this tie, priced at 6/5. Hosts Leganes are 5/2 to win and a draw is 21/10.

You might remember: There is a Premier League loan flavour to Sevilla this season, and for those looking for some familiar faces in this La Liga preview, Sandro Ramirez and Roque Mesa are set to play alongside former Manchester City pair Jesus Navas and Nolito.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Leganes take on Sevilla at Butarque in this weekend’s round of La Liga fixtures, after the visitors dumped Manchester United out of the Champions League on Tuesday

Following their defeat to Valencia a week ago, a top four finish looks beyond Sevilla – with an 11-point gap now it would take a brave La Liga prediction to put them back in the running.

However, Vincenzo Montella’s side recorded a huge 2-1 win away at Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday night, which carries them into the quarter-finals.

The Andalusian club have performed well in 2018, but their away form is still a concern when looking at football predictions on them away from the Sanchez Pizjuan.

Of the five La Liga games they have played away from home since the turn of the year, they have won three and lost two, and this makes it difficult to guess how this will go – a low risk draw looks to be a good option at 21/10.

Leganes have made life difficult for some of the big sides on home territory this season, and that is set to be the case again this weekend against Sevilla, and an under 2.5 goals bet is at 13/20.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Wissam Ben Yedder was the hero against Manchester United, with two late goals to sink Jose Mourinho’s side in dramatic fashion.

However he has not been in great goalscoring form domestically this season, and he has not always been strongly featured in his team’s La Liga preview because of this misfiring form.

His goals against United may kick-start him for the end of the season, and he is 9/2 to score first against Leganes.

2

We fancy:

Football score predictions are always a tough proposition, and when it involves a strong side with mixed away form against a stubborn home side with less individual quality, it can be even harder.

The safest betting option here looks to be a draw, and with neither side exactly banging the goals in currently, it could be low key.

A 1-1 draw is priced at 5/1.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

For fans looking for something a little more unusual in their football bet tips and predictions, it is worth remembering that Franco Vazquez has scored twice in his last five appearances against Leganes.

Like Ben Yedder he has also been in tame form this season, scoring just three La Liga goals, and four overall in 2017-18.

However he does seem to come to life against Leganes, and he is 5/2 to score anytime this weekend.
