Maribor – Sevilla – UEFA Champions League Prediction and Preview: 6th December 2017
The Maribor occupies the last position of the UEFA Champions League E Group, with 2 points accumulated in 5 games. The hosts have had alternating developments lately. After a draw in the cup with O. Ljubljana, they managed to defeat Gorica in the championship with the score of 2-1. D. Bohar and J. Mesanovic are the scorers of the Champions League team, having a goal scored in groups. The hosts can not count on this injury duel A. Rajcevic, D. Sme and L. Zahovic.
On the other hand, Sevilla is on the second position of this Champions League group, with 8 points scored in 5 stages. The guests have a very good time, with 4 successes recorded in the last 5 official games. The previous round, Sevilla managed to defeat La Coruna on its own, score 2-0. Frenchman W. Ben Yedder is the best scorer in the group, with 6 goals scored in 5 games. D. Carrico and N. Pareja will not travel because of medical problems.
Maribor has no chance at the European spring, while Sevilla can qualify in the best possible event. So I expect a game entirely dominated by Spaniards.
