Sevilla still have a chance of finishing top of their Champions League group and that should be enough to spur them on to victory at Maribor.

The Spanish outfit would also need Liverpool to drop points against Spartak Moscow at Anfield, but this will still be seen as a chance to progress in style.

We like 23/20 for the visitors to prevail 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 for our Maribor vs Sevilla betting predictions.

A Look At Maribor’s Betting Odds

Maribor have created some fond memories during their third Champions League group-stage campaign, securing home and away draws with Spartak.

However, the Slovenian title holders have looked out of their depth when taking on the pool’s big two teams.

Being hammered 7-0 here by Liverpool was the low point, while they were beaten 3-0 both at Anfield and against Sevilla in Spain.

With Darko Milanic’s side consigned to finishing bottom of the table, it is hard to see them suddenly finding the inspiration to challenge here.

After some initial resistance, we like 8/5 for the visitors to outscore their hosts between 30:01 minutes and half-time for our Maribor vs Sevilla betting tips.

A Look At Sevilla’s Betting Odds

Sevilla have shown they are prone to the occasional blip, going down 5-1 at Spartak Moscow and falling 3-0 behind versus Liverpool at half-time at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan a fortnight ago.

However, this is a talented team and they turned things around to earn a share of the spoils with the Reds that night.

Saturday’s 2-0 defeat of Deportivo also gave them four wins from five LaLiga fixtures, with the only reversal coming via a 2-1 defeat at Barcelona.

Wissam Ben Yedder was on target over the weekend, bagged a brace in the fightback against Liverpool and hit a hat-trick when Sevilla beat Maribor 3-0 on Matchday 2.

The 27-year-old Frenchman has always been a reliable front man both for this club and former team Toulouse, so even short odds of 2/1 for him to net first seem fair value from the Maribor vs Sevilla odds.
