(Watch Live**) Online: Sevilla vs. Valencia Live Stream 12 August 2023
Sevilla Form Following the departure of Julen Lopetegui in October 2022, Jorge Sampaoli was appointed manager of Sevilla, but the Argentine didn’t last long. With Los Nervionenses heading for relegation, Sampaoli was replaced by Jose Luis Mendilibar in March 2023, and the experienced coach turned things around. Sevilla suffered a solitary defeat across Mendilibar’s first 10 league games, securing their top-flight status in the process. The Andalusia outfit then dispatched Manchester United, Sevilla and Roma to regain the Europa League crown, meaning they will play Champions League football in 2023-24.
▶️ Sevilla vs Valencia Live Stream & Prediction, H2HPublished: 05:55, 9 Aug 2023 Updated: 05:57, 9 Aug 2023 The 2023-24 La Liga season gets underway on Friday, with Sevilla entertaining Valencia at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in one of two games on the opening day. Key Takeaways Sevilla finished 12th last season – four points shy of the European places However, the Andalusia outfit clinched a fifth Europa League title in 10 years Valencia finished 16th last season – two points clear of the relegation zone There is no hiding the fact that both Sevilla and Valencia endured a below-par 2022-23 La Liga campaign. While Los Nervionenses softened the blow with yet another Europa League triumph, Los Ches narrowly avoided relegation.
Valencia Form Like Sevilla, Valencia experienced three separate managerial tenures last term. Following the sacking of Gennaro Gattuso, Voro took the reins on an interim basis before Ruben Baraja came in to steady the ship. Eventually, Baraja kept the club in La Liga, with Los Ches finishing just two points outside the drop zone. It is worth noting, however, that Valencia head into the 2023-24 campaign on the back of a positive pre-season, having defeated Nottingham Forest, Trnava, St. Gallen and Alaves.
Needless to say, Baraja will be desperate for his players to carry their pre-season form into the new La Liga campaign. Head-to-Head Valencia have failed to win any of their last nine meetings with Sevilla in all competitions, recording three draws and six losses since 2019. Across the past 11 league encounters between Sevilla and Valencia, only one match has produced more than three goals. This suggests that Friday’s showdown will be a low-scoring affair.
Team NewsSevilla will start the season without French centre-back Tanguy Nianzou, who picked up an injury in pre-season. However, the recent addition of Loic Bade, Djibril Sow and Adria Pedrosa will give Mendilibar more options. On the flip side, Valencia will be without Alberto Mari on Friday as the 22-year-old midfielder continues to recover from groin surgery. In terms of summer transfers, Los Ches have signed Cenk Ozkacar from Lyon and Pepelu from Levante.
