Our football match prediction:
Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan will host Sunday’s football match between Sevilla and Las Palmas. Los Sevillanos kicked off the new La Liga campaign with a 1-1 draw with Espanyol, but they quickly got back on course. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Getafe and Eibar, Sevilla recorded a hard-fought victory over Girona at the weekend and it is more than obvious that new coach Eduardo Berizzo is doing a great job with the Andalusian side. Their next rivals Las Palmas proved their worth in a victory over Athletic Bilbao at the weekend, but beating Sevilla at “Pizjuan” is easier said than done. A man to watch in the away team will be Vitolo, who “betrayed” los Sevillanos in the summer and, no doubt, he is going to leave his heart on the field. Anyhow, home win appears on the cards as Eduardo Berizzo’s troops have been in a thrilling form of late.
