Sevilla vs Valencia [Recap, February 16th]

No goals were scored in Sevilla vs. Valencia clash which we predicted Sevilla would win both halves with odds from Ladbrokes, and we lost, as not only there were no goals but both teams ended with only 10 players on the pitch.

And it’s not only the fact that they lost such a good opportunity to distance themselves from Valencia and shorten the distance between them and Villarreal, but also that for an entire half they had 11 men on the pitch as opposed to Valencia’s 10, and yet the dangerous team ended up being the visitors. Sevilla couldn’t control the ball for the majority of the time they had it and Alcacer and Vargas were the ones to give the troubles to Sevilla’s defense.

Unai Emery didn’t want to risk it and went with Fazio and Pareja as central defenders, while moving Carrico to the midfield. There weren’t clear opportunities to score yet Valencia had some long distance shots from Vargas and Feghouli that ended up probably in the same place as Sergio Ramos’ ball. In the second half there was a different story as Rakitic shot the ball right into Ricardo Costa’s hand, and even though it should have been a penalty it ended with a red card for Costa.

Sevilla had their red card in the dying minutes of the match and their last opportunity to score came when Bacca fired a shot that merely brushed past Diego Alves’ post.

Result: -6 units, bet lost
