Espanyol welcomes Sevilla in a pretty interesting fixture from the first round of Spanish La Liga. This game is going to be played at the RCDE Stadium in Barcelona on Sunday. That’s our free football betting tips for the weekend.
Espanyol started their campaign pretty early, so we can say they have a better match practice. Los Pericos already played four games in Europa League, winning all four of them. The Catalans eliminated Stjarnan and Luzern from the competition, showing some good shape.
In their last game David Gallego’s boys hosted Swiss side Luzern at home, enjoying a solid 3-0 win. The Chinese striker Wu Lei opened the score for the hosts, while Victor Campuzano scored two more for Los Pericos. We can say that Espanyol should enter this fixture against Sevilla with a good confidence.
Sevilla’s fans expect this match with high interest, because it’s going to be an official debut for the club’s new manager Julen Lopetegui. Former manager of Porto, Spain and Real Madrid, Lopetegui is a big name in the business. How far can he take Sevilla, though? We shall see this question answered pretty soon.
On the market Los Rojiblancos made some changes in their squad as well. The club’s best goalscorer Wissam Ben Yedder was sold to Monaco, but he was replaced by PSV’s Luuk de Jong and RB Salzburg’s Munas Dabbur. Monaco’s Rony Lopes, Bordeaux’s Jules Kounde, Nantes’ Diego Carlos and Porto’s Oliver Torres also joined the team.
Meanwhile, alongside Ben Yedder, Pablo Sarabia and Quincy Promes also left Sevilla. They were important players, so let’s see how their replacements will do.
