Team News

  • Ricardo Costa should partner Jeremy Mathieu at centre-back, despite the latter carrying an ankle knock.
  • Diego Alves remains sidelined with injury, so Vicente Guaita should deputise in goal again
  • Paco Alcácer is suspended, meaning Jonas is likely to partner Eduardo Vargas up front.
  • Coke will be expected to start having missed the first leg as he was suspended.
  • Ivan Rakitic started from the bench in the weekend defeat to Athletic, but should come back into the starting XI here.
  • Sebastián Cristóforo and Cicinho are sidelined through injury, while Denis Cheryshev and Diego Perotti will be assessed closer to kick off.

Prediction

  • Valencia face an uphill task of overcoming a two-goal deficit at home to Sevilla, though they have been in this position before having been 3-0 down from the first leg against Basel, before winning the tie 5-3 at the Mestalla.
  • Sevilla's Champions League hopes suffered a real blow with the 3-1 loss in Bilbao at the weekend, but having rested players for the league encounter, Unai Emery is set to name his strongest possible XI for the trip to Valencia.
  • Valencia will be buoyed by the return of Ricardo Costa and should be able to secure the win here, but Sevilla have the quality in attack to net at least once and should progress to the final on the away goal ruling.

  • Most painful defeat for los che , next seasn they will be stronger

  • thank you so much BenMcAleer for great prediction.... :)

  • Marin and Gameiro should come on

  • Had a feeling that would happen. This should be an interesting finish. Could go any way from here. Personally I think Valencia can snatch it.

  • imo los che win , bet on.

  • 1-1 tonight and it'll be a Sevilla v Juventus final

  • @xxxxxSPAxxxxx That match i think benfica are well placed to qualify SLB vs VCF imo

  • @soul_snatcher ...away goal will come back to haunt Benfica I think

  • Hoping for an attacking treat , no predictions.

  • Also unai rested his squad on wednesday to focus on this so i think Sevilla have a upper hand here but you never know how los che will respond regrdless.

  • Sevilla are strong and europa matters to them a lot.

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Valencia - Sevilla 2 - 1 Sevila - Benfica FINAL

  • Alcacer was stupid to get booked. May cost Valencia

  • Tough game , can swing anyways. Rakitic is the key to Sevilla's chance

  • Valencia is still in this tie, they are quite good at home. I won't even try and predict the result of this game, because I have no idea...

  • 1-2

  • support valencia!!! thank you Ben McAleer for prediction :)
