Live on Skysports 3: Sat 19.00 & 21.00: Sevilla need to get back to winning ways and at 4/9 (Betfred), should do that against Almeria.
Sevilla slumped to a 3rd straight defeat last weekend at Villarreal, pushing them down to 10th in the league, but should be eyeing 3 points against Almeria.
Their opponents are a massive 7/1 at but have recovered reasonably since being mauled 8-0 by Barcelona; a narrow defeat in Valencia and a draw against Zaragoza.
Sevilla need to fall back on their usually solid home form, which has been breached by both Mallorca and Getafe recently. Winning by a clear 2 goals or more should not be beyond Sevilla so back that outcome at 5/4 with Blue Square.
With just 1 draw in 2010 at the Vicente Calderon, it’s fair to dismiss Ladbrokes’ 11/4 about a stalemate and Espanyol showed quite plainly that Atletico’s home advantage can be overcome if you attack them.
Admittedly, Deportivo have only won once on their travels this calendar year but ended a crushing run of defeats with a win at lowly Levante as part of a run of 4 wins in 6 games.
Perhaps it is of interest then that Stan James rate Deportivo at 1/2 to win with a 2 goal headstart and bet365 go as large as 13/8 for Deportivo with a 1 goal advantage, just in case the rare draw crops up.
But the most interesting wager has to be 9/2 about Deportivo in the ‘draw no bet’ market (Boylesports).
