Our football match prediction:
After coming from three goals behind to share the spoils with Liverpool, Sevilla will be looking to clinch their spot in the Champions League last 16 with a win over Maribor at Ljudski vrt. Los Sevillanos have been having their ups and downs in the elite competition this season, but they are on the verge of making it to the knockout stages and we predict they will fight tooth and nail in Wednesday’s football game against Maribor. The Slovenian champions are stuck at the bottom of Group E and seeing that they have nothing to play for in their last group game against Sevilla, away win should be considered. Eduardo Berizzo’s men showed character in the 3-3 draw with Liverpool and we are positive they will prove their worth in Wednesday’s clash against Maribor. Wissam Ben Yedder scored a brace in the draw against Jurgen Klopp’s troops and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
