Struggling in La Liga right now, with no wins in four games, Sevilla will be hoping to shock the Premier League reigning champs Barcelona. Take advantage of the best betting odds and Champions League props by using our sportsbook.
Sevilla: Out of Form
Prior to the 2021-22 campaign, the Spanish side has never failed to make it out of their Champions League groups, but Julen Lopetegui’s troops could only finish third behind Lille and Red Bull Salzburg the last term.
Selling their best defensive duo Jules Kounde and Diego Carlos to Barcelona and Aston Villa respectively has had a profound effect on Sevilla. They are winless in four La Liga games losing three and allowing 11 goals in the process. They are now sitting 16th in the Spanish top-flight league standings and given their defensive issues you shouldn’t include them in your soccer picks and parlays.
The visit of a rampant Barcelona was only ever going to end one way as they lost 3-0 last weekend with pressure continuing to mount on Julen Lopetegui. Speaking after the clash against Barcelona, Lopetegui explained what his side needs to change when they face Pep Guardiola’s side. They still have enough quality in their squad to turn things around, but facing one of Europe’s best attacking sides doesn’t look good.
Jesus Corona is missing for Sevilla, after suffering a horrific injury in training last week. They are also without Marcao, and ex-Manchester City defender Karim Rekik is expected to be a doubt. New arrival Kasper Dolberg earned his first minutes off the bench for Sevilla at the weekend after joining on loan from Nice to compete with Youssef En-Nesyri, and Lopetegui should consider recalls for Jesus Navas, Thomas Delaney, and Papu Gomez after Saturday’s disappointment.
Man City: Scoring Goals for Fun
The Citizens have never been knocked out from the group stages under Pep Guardiola and we expect them to easily win their group this season. Manchester City is sitting second in the Premier League table at the moment and has been in impressive form so far. They were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw in their previous game against Aston Villa and will need to take it up a notch this week.
They have the best attack and the second-best defense in their domestic league with 20 goals scored and just six allowed and their new star Erling Haaland is leading the EPL top scorers’ chart with 10 goals netted in six fixtures. They should have enough to outplay Sevilla on Tuesday and kick off their UCL campaign in style so if you’re betting online you should back them to return home with the three points.
In terms of early team news, Jack Grealish and Nathan Ake returned to the squad and will likely be in the traveling squad to Spain. Kyle Walker came off injured in the second half against Aston Villa and will be assessed to see the extent of the injury. Walker’s injury could see Joao Cancelo move back to the right-hand side.
Sevilla vs Man City Head-to-Head
The Citizens have a great head-to-head record against Sevilla and have won the two matches that have been played between the sides. Sevilla has never defeated Manchester City in an official fixture and will look to create history on Tuesday. The previous meeting between the two teams took place in 2015 and ended in a 3-1 victory for Manchester City. The city has looked extremely strong in the opening weeks of its Premier League campaign with six games played and 14 points to its name. Notably, though, they’ve also conceded six goals giving them an average of one goal against per game.

Sevilla vs Man City Predictions
As expected, the Citizens enter this clash as heavy favorites being priced at -275 on the three-way Moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at three.
Sevilla got trashed by a super Barcelona side and should be scared because the Citizens look at least equal if not better than the Catalan giants in the attacking third. Erling Haaland’s Champions League debut with City should see at least one goal scored by the Norway international. The visitors should have enough to find spaces easily in Sevilla’s defense and cover the spread.
