Sevila is hot on the board

Currently, the fourth positioned Sevilla seems to be on an impressive third place in the La Liga and have similarly been playing very well in their home turf generating a total of 15 goals which come out as the highest home goal tally within the division.

The dominance over Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium is evident due to the fact that they have won all five of their home games and given only three goals under those matches. With such a good home record, they are very likely to keep this winning run going.

Regarding my forecast, I believe that Sevilla will triumph with more than one goal difference. The fact that six of their eight victories this season under the leadership of Julen Lopetegui were more than two goals, supports this. Furthermore, Sevilla has a good record against teams in the bottom half of the table losing only once from their games with them this season.

Summary Sevilla has proven to be an impressive team in La Liga, with a consistent good home record point towards the possibility of maintaining their winning strings and sealing a big victory win margin is more than one goal.
