and did not hesitate in the Play Off eliminated the Istanbul BB although with some difficulties. At the beginning of the championship the team showed some irregularity, but now they are playing well and going through a good moment.
The victories have appeared and the good shows too.
Sevilla come from a 2-0 defeat in Madrid against Atletico, but that does not erase the victories they have had in recent weeks.
In the first day of the Champions League they drew an important draw to 2 goals in Liverpool in a game that was quite open and balanced. Sevilla know now that this is a 3-point game and they can not fail.
Maribor They are the best team in Slovenia, but this year internally they have the Olimpija competition that has played well and promises to offer a good replica in the title fight.
Maribor sometimes plays this Champions League and this year managed to survive the Play Offs. They eliminated FH and then Hapoel Beer Sheva in a very hard qualifying round that was scored by the away goal.
In the debut in the Champions League in this group stage tied 1 goal with Spartak Moscow. It was a tricky game, as the Russian champions have more quality, but Maribor showed good attitude, believed until the end and got the equalizer in the last minutes.
With Seville and Liverpool beyond this Spartak, Maribor is clearly the outsider of this group.
Prognosis Sevilla vs Maribor:
Prognosis: Sevilla are a stronger team, have more quality and certainly that Maribor will not be able to survive long time in this trip to Spain.
I am convinced that the Spaniards are going to get strong in this game with great intensity, to send Maribor to their defensive zone and the goal will appear. I see this Seville go to gap time already in advantage.
Maribor does not have the same arguments and will not take it. Sevilla come from a less good result in Madrid and nothing better than returning home in this European competition to return to the good results that have characterized this team in recent weeks.
