Our match prediction:
After playing out a goalless draw with Villarreal at Camp el Madrigal on day 2, Sevilla will be looking to start a new winning run in La Liga when they host Las Palmas at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday evening. Los Sevillanos were impressive at home ground last season and seeing that they recorded a thrilling 6-4 win over Espanyol in their first home game of the 2016/2017 La Liga campaign, it is no surprise Jorge Sampaoli’s troops are regarded as favourites to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match against Las Palmas. Los Amarillos have been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season and the league leaders will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Valencia and Granada when they take on Sevilla on Matchday 3. Both teams have been impressive in front of goal this season and we predict that over 3.5 goals will be scored in the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan clash.
