Maribor vs Sevilla predictions- Maribor’s Champions League campaign comes to an expected end on Wednesday as they face Sevilla in their final group game, with them sitting rock bottom of the group with an unbridgeable four point gap between them and Spartak Moscow in 3rd. This rules out any chance of qualifying for the Europa League knockouts, and whilst that is a disappointment they will feel some sense of relief.
The continental campaign looks to have had a significant detrimental impact on the rest of their form, and the Slovenian side have won just three of their last eight matches in all competitions. They are still top of their league, but they only have a three point lead and have played a game more than their chasers.
Maribor vs Sevilla predictions
Maribor were never expected to be much of a threat in the Champions League though. They have picked up two points in their two meetings with Spartak Moscow, but Liverpool laid bare all their vulnerabilities with by scoring ten against them over their two fixtures. Sevilla also beat them 3-0 at home, so they won’t be holding out much hope on Wednesday.
Sevilla actually have something to play for as well. Things are very tight in the race for qualification, and all three of the other teams besides Maribor could feasibly finish top of the group. Liverpool currently hold the top spot, but they are only one point ahead of Sevilla and face a more difficult clash with a Spartak Moscow side who will be going all out for the win on Wednesday.
The weekend saw Sevilla comfortable beat Deportivo to make it four wins from their last five games. Their one failure to win during this period was in the Champions League, when they spectacularly came from 3-0 down at half time to draw 3-3 against Liverpool.
Away from home Sevilla do have some problems defensively though. They have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven trips away, conceding a total of 16 goals in this period and including a 5-1 drubbing against Spartak Moscow. Maribor will feel quietly confident about their chances of getting on the scoresheet, so backing Both Teams to Score looks a good choice. Judging by their performance against Liverpool though, Sevilla shouldn’t have any issues dispatching of Maribor, so we’re going for a Sevilla Win and Both Teams to Score alongside a 3-1 correct score Maribor vs Sevilla predictions.
