Sevilla has had a terrible season in La Liga, but things have been completely different in the UEFA Europa League. So much that it comes in as the Europa League betting favorite to qualify for the Grand Finale.
However, eliminating Juventus won’t be easy. After all, the Bianconeri remain undefeated in the continental tournament. Plus, the first leg finished 1-1, and away goals no longer apply as a tiebreaker.
Sevilla: Highly Motivated
After getting an extremely valuable point in Turin, Sevilla visited Valladolid in La Liga and won 3-0 with Rafa Mir, Alejandro Gomez, and Jesus Corona as the scorers. The defense also deserves a lot of credit since the home side won possession and finished with more shots on target but failed to score.
The good news, besides winning, was that several usual starters didn’t play, which means they’ll be at 100 percent for Thursday’s crucial match. The list includes Yassine Bounou, Bryan Gil, and Youssef En-Nesyri.
Speaking of En-Nesyri, he’s the main reason to consider including Sevilla in your Europa League picks, especially at +140. The 25-year-old striker is the team’s top scorer with 18 goals in all competitions.
There’s also the fact that Sevilla only lost two of its last 10 games at home, scoring 21 goals and conceding 11, finishing with a clean sheet four times. Manager Jose Mendilibar has a lot to do with that. He has done a great job since replacing Jorge Sampaoli, who had the team closer to the relegation zone than the top 10.
Juventus: On a Roll
Juventus is offering a +210 price in the Europa League lines to win straight up. We’re talking about a team that hasn’t lost in its last five games in all competitions.
Most recently, it defeated Cremonese 2-0, with Nicolo Fagioli and Gleison Bremer as the scorers. Juventus controlled the match from start to end, winning possession with 70% and finishing with eight shots on target, six more than Cremonese.
Juventus also has talent to spare, so much that Wojciech Szczesny, Manuel Locatelli, Alex Sandro, Filip Kostic, and Daniele Rugani didn’t play against Cremonese. Plus, Moise Kean, Angel Di Maria, and Samuel Junior came off the bench to only play in the second half.
Regarding the UEL, Juventus already eliminated Nantes, SC Freiburg, and Sporting Lisbon. The team is 4-3-0 with 10 goals for and three against, not conceding more than one goal in any game.
Dusan Vlahovic, who has scored 13 goals in all competitions, is team’s top scorer even though he missed a lot of games due to injury.
Sevilla vs Juventus Head-to-Head
As mentioned before, the first leg finished 1-1. Sevilla almost pulled off the stunner thanks to Youssef En-Nesyri, who scored in the first half, but Juventus managed to even the score in the 97th minute courtesy of Federico Gatti. Juventus won possession with 60% but finished with only two shots on goal, three fewer than Sevilla.
Here’s another reason to consider Juventus for your online gambling ticket: the team won 3-1 the last time it visited Sevilla.
The total for Thursday’s clash is set at 2½ goals, with the over offering a +115 price, which could improve via Europa League live betting.
