Match Preview

Can Sevilla Dig Deep to Get their First Win?

On the back of a winless spell, Sevilla will be looking to pull off a massive upset when they host English Champions Manchester City on Tuesday. 

In their current form, Julen Lopetegui will be looking for a change of attention from their torrid performances and form in La Liga and welcome a massive clash against Man City.

Lopetegui will seek to use this huge clash as a platform to motivate his players and have them in a fighting frame of mind ahead of the match. They will need to display a perfect performance to stand a chance of taking something from this match on Tuesday.

Lopetegui will especially emphasize the defensive structure to stop Man City’s free-flowing and free-scoring attack.

Can Man City Bounce Back against Sevilla?

Pep Guardiola will be looking for an immediate response to dropped points at Villa Park on Saturday when his men were held to a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.

Although he is expected to shuffle the pack, the quality of his squad means that he will still pick a world-class team to face Sevilla.

Guardiola will be especially wary of a wounded Sevilla side that are so far without triumph in their La Liga outings after four rounds of fixtures, with the latest coming in a 0-3 defeat at home to Barcelona. 

Manchester City will be looking for a positive start to their Champions League campaign as they seek to top the group and progress to the knock-out rounds. 

Form Guide

Sevilla

Sevilla have lost three times and drawn once in their opening four matches in the Spanish league.

In their opening match, they lost 2-1 away to Osasuna. They followed this result up with an eventful 1-1 stalemate in front of their home fans, where both teams had a player sent off. 

In their third outing, Sevilla lost 2-1 away to Ameria before convincingly being beaten by an in-form Barcelona side 3-0.

In their four outings in La Liga, Sevilla have scored three times while conceding eight times. The failure of their defensive structure has been their glaring problem this season. 

Lopetegui will be looking to bolster his side’s structure to ensure that they can keep Man City out while retaining an attacking threat.

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola’s men have made an unbeaten start to their season; they have won four times while drawing twice. They have hauled 14 pints out of the available eighteen. 

They opened the season with a 0-2 win at the London Stadium against West Ham. Man City subsequently won 4-0 against Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium. They dropped their first points in a 3-3 draw against Newcastle.

Guardiola’s men then came from two goals down to beat Crystal Palace 4-2 at home before convincingly hammering Nottingham Forest 6-0. In their latest Premier League outing, City were held to a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

Man City will be looking for a positive result after dropping points at the weekend. 

Possible Starting Lineups

Sevilla

Bono; G. Montiel, Fernando, T. Nianzou, M. Acuba; J. Jordan, N. Gudelj, I. Rakitic; E. Lamela, Y. En-Nesyri, Isco

Manchester City

Ederson; J. Cancelo, R. Dias, J. Stones, K. Walker; i. Gundogan, Rodri, K. De Bruyne; P. Foden, E. Haaland, B. Silva

Players to Watch

Isco

The 30-year-old forward is slowly adapting to his teammates at Sevilla; he has made three appearances in La Liga this season, which highlights the esteem in which Lopetegui holds him.

The creative forward will be crucial for Sevilla as they will look to use the little possession they will have against Man City.

Isco’s connection and link-up play with other attacking players will be important for Sevilla in transition situations when they will need to play through the lines to create goal-scoring chances. 

E. Haaland

The 22-year-old Norwegian striker has made a storming start to life as Manchester City’s new striker. He has plundered 10 goals in 6 appearances in the league for Man City so far this season.

Haaland has instantly connected with other City attacking players. Although he is still getting used to how City play, he has retained his goal-scoring touch, as highlighted by his double-figures-haul so far.

Haaland will be crucial for Man City on Tuesday as they try to pick their way through a defensive and compact Sevilla side.

Prediction

Sevilla will adopt a pragmatic approach. In their current form, they will prioritize defense over the attack, and the focus will be on frustrating Man City and preventing them from playing their free-flowing football.

Man City will focus on maintaining their dominance of possession and retaining their patient build-up. They will focus on using their crisp and fast passing to create chances and get the breakthrough they need.

Manchester City are the favorites to win the match and take all three points.
