Sevilla vs Maribor Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
An interesting match awaits us this Tuesday when Maribor will face Sevilla at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium for the second round of their Champions League group E campaign. Both teams will be looking to build on positive starts and try to snatch a win here.
Sevilla were lucky to get a point from their 2-2 away draw at Liverpool in the group opener, as they fought back from one-goal down while the hosts missed a penalty just before the break. Liverpool were the better side and Sevilla got all that they could from this match. Sevilla are huge favorites to grab all three points in this game as they are undefeated in 20 home games across all competitions at the moment in time. Even though they are currently on a 20-game unbeaten streak across all competitions at their stadium, they’ve only scored more than two goals in 14 occasions in this term. They have been struggling in front of the goal in the last two weeks, as they haven’t scored more than two goals in each of their last four competitive games.
Maribor managed a 1-1 home draw against Spartak Moscow thanks to a late equalizer from Damjan Bohar. They have kept a clean sheet in three of their last four away games across all competitions, but have only scored seven goals in their last seven away games in the Champions League.

Maribor qualified for this UEFA Champions League edition by winning a sixth Slovenian title in seven seasons in 2016/17.
