thumbnail Hello,

Our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides believes the Andalusians will trouble a Che side who are on their worst run in recent years

Two of Spain's biggest clubs face each other on Sunday trying to kick-start their respective seasons after disappointing openings.

Valencia lost three league matches in a row for the first time in five years and William Hill price them at 4/5 (1.80) to end that disasterous run with a win.

Sevilla, meanwhile, who began the weekend second bottom of the table, are offered at 17/5 (4.20) to record their first victory of the season.

The teams had contrasting fortunes in the Europa League on Thursday night, with Valencia succumbing to a humiliating 3-0 home defeat to Swansea while Sevilla won 2-1 at Estoril.

Indeed, such is the crisis level Valencia are approaching that defeat could mean Miroslav Djukic's job is under threat. There will be tension amongst the fans and players alike at the Mestalla and Sevilla could well capitalise.

Backing them outright might be a little optimistic but tipping the visitors to win a half at 8/5 (2.60) appeals.

Valencia have conceded three goals in each of their last four competitive games and are in defensive disarray, something that a talented Sevilla forward line can expose on Sunday, making a nod to the visitors all-the-more appealing.
