Match of the last day of the group stage of the Champions League, which faces Maribor Vs Sevilla at 20:45 in: Ljudski from Maribor, Slovenia.
As a curious fact, this stadium is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, and its translation means Jardin del Pueblo …, I leave it there.
For this game we are going to look for more than 1.5 goals in the second half.
Well, last day of Champions and Sevilla comes to this appointment very well placed to get the pass to the next round. The Slovenians on the other hand do not play anything, nor the pass to the Europa League, with what except the Spanish debacle should take the 3 points of his visit to Maribor. So is the classification for this last day;
1- Liverpool: 9 points
2- Seville: 8 points
3- Spartak from Moscow: 6 points
4- Maribor: 2 points
So things are in group E, so unless the Russians win Liverpool and pay what is not written to the Slovenes, I do not see Sevila out of the next round. But we are going to what interests us, the goals in the second half. I believe in that possibility for several reasons;
– Maribor is the maximum dominator of their league, followed very closely by O.Ljubljana, which gets 7 points. In previous years has also dominated the competition practically, and he needs to give that salito in Europe, which many teams in these leagues never get to give. The fact is that they play in their stadium the last game of Europe this season, and I guess they do not want to take a bag from the start as they did against Liverpool (0-7, 4 in the first half and 3 in the second) and say goodbye to the Champions trying to complicate things to the Sevillano team. He already made it happen to the Russians of Spartak, who were not able to pass the tie in the 2 games. In both matches, the result was 1-1, with all the goals in the second half. Very important fact, which shows that if you hesitate a bit it costs you to make a goal at the home of the Slovenians. In the 2 matches played at home they scored at least 2 goals in the second half.
– Sevilla for its part in league is not being as effective as in previous seasons, only has 19 goals in favor, by 14 embedded; Well, of the 19 that he has in favor, 14 have been in the second 45 minutes, and at the time of fitting he receives the same goals in the first half as in the second, 7-7. That offensive potential that has been lost in the league, seems to have taken him to the Champions, where in the 5 games he has played, he has scored 11 goals, the same he has received (11). Of the 11 scored, 5 in the second half, and 6 in the first 45 minutes. Of what fitted equally, 5 in the second 45 minutes, 6 in the first part.
These last data are not very true alagueños, but it shows us that if the thing was complicated to Sevilla, it would have reaction capacity to solve in the meeting in the second half. I doubt that Maribor will be able to surprise Sevilla, but there may be a lot of nervousness in Marcucci’s team, who, as he said at a press conference, “all the energy of the club is in this game”, because we hope that all that energy take it out in the second part.
With all this I expect an ultra motivated Sevilla, but to which the nerves and the weather can generate that the match is resolved in the second half.
I know it is difficult to rely on over goals in the second half, and more without waiting for the start of the game, but the reliability of Sevilla in the league (remember 14 goals of 19 in the second half), which is the most regular competition , and the importance of the meeting, make me think that the second 45 minutes can be solved.
