Tuesday night saw Sevilla suffer their biggest defeat since the inception of the Champions League as the Andalusians were humiliated 5-1 at Spartak Moscow.
While few would have predicted the margin of defeat, Sevilla have been extremely unconvincing so far this season and new manager Eduardo Berizzo has plenty of work on his hands.
Following a long trip and a tough night, the last thing Sevilla need is the kind of fixture they have coming up this weekend, with a visit to the Mestalla to face a rampant Valencia side an intimidating prospect; Los Che begin the weekend in second place after an unbeaten start and Marcelino's team have won each of their last four matches, scoring 17 times in the process.
Valencia will be keen to continue their positive run while Sevilla will be desperate for a reaction, meaning this should be an entertaining game between two top four candidates, and dabblebet customers can watch and bet on this fixture via desktop, mobile and tablet.

The hosts are offered at 10/11 (1.91) to record their fourth home win of the season and only Atletico Madrid have managed to take a point from Mestalla this term, so it is no surprise that Sevilla can be backed at 14/5 (3.80) as their away performances so far have been far from impressive.
The Andalusian outfit needed a late goal to win 1-0 at Getafe, saw Girona miss an injury time penalty in their 1-0 win at the Estadio Montilivi before losing at both Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao; add to those results their underwhelming performance at Anfield in a 2-2 draw, plus Tuesday's disaster in Russia, and Sevilla on the road inspire precious little confidence.
The price for a home therefore looks tempting, while for higher odds backing Valencia to win and over 2.5 goals could appeal at 8/5 (2.60), given that this selection has paid out in each of their last four league matches.
