Our football match prediction:
Jorge Sampaoli is doing a great job with Sevilla. Los Sevillanos have been producing outstanding displays in the Spanish top flight this season and they sit in second place in the standings ahead of Matchday 20. The Andalusian outfit came from behind to beat Osasuna in Pamplona at the weekend and it is no surprise the visitors are considered favourites to win Sunday’s football match at RCDE Stadium. Sevilla are on the right track to secure their place in the Champions League, but coach Jorge Sampaoli must warn his men against complacency. Espanyol did well to beat Granada in their last league match and considering that the Catalans are tough to beat at home, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils on Sunday afternoon. Sevilla recorded a 6-4 win over Espanyol in the opening match of the season, but we would not be surprised if fans see a low-scoring affair this time out.
