Sevilla Moderate Favourites To Win at Home

Published on February 3rd, 2016 10:52 pm EST
Spanish Copa del Rey action will return this week with a match between Sevilla and Celta Vigo. According to online sports book William Hill, Sevilla is the current favourite to win.

Here are the odds for the first leg match between the two teams:

Sevilla, 1.67
Draw, 3.80
Celta Vigo, 5.00

Sevilla, led by the likes of Kevin Gameiro and Fernando Llorente, are the favourites to win in the Spanish Copa del Rey semi-finals. The winner of the Sevilla/Celta Vigo contest will almost certainly square off against Barcelona in the finals, as Barcelona beat up on Valencia in the first leg of their semi-final match earlier today.


To give you an idea of how these two teams stack up, Sevilla currently sits in 5th place in La Liga with a record of 10-6-6, while Celta Vigo is in 7th place with a record of 10-4-8. While the Barcelona/Valencia contest is a total mismatch, the Sevilla/Celta Vigo games should be very compelling entertainment.

Celta Vigo has been struggling as of late, as they have lost 3 of their last 4 games in La Liga play, while FC Sevilla is undefeated over the same period of time. In addition, FC Sevilla is unbeaten in their last four Spanish Copa del Rey games.

Having said all of this, Celta Vigo surprised many by toppling Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Copa del Rey quarter-finals, so don't be surprised if they can give Sevilla all that they can handle this week and next.

This should be a very good match-up between two of the upper echelon teams in Spain.
