Sides brace for decider
After being unable to play either leg of this last 16 clash before the competition was suspended, Sevilla and Roma meet in Germany on Thursday in a one-off clash to decide who makes the last eight. Hollywoodbet has several options for betting on this game based on analyst predictions.
When they were due to meet back in March, Sevilla were backed to go on another run towards this trophy. However, Roma have perked up in July, so they head into the clash with hope that they can book their place in the quarter-finals.
Roma on form
While Roma finished eight-points shy of fourth place in Serie A, they finished the league campaign in impressive fashion. The Giallorossi were able to win seven of their last eight games, coming into this match having scored 23 goals across their last eight. In that run, Roma have scored twice in every game.
The Italians also have a solid record in their recent European games. Roma have lost just one of their last nine matches in the Europa League (W4 D4). They’ve only lost once on the road this season in Europe, with three of their four Europa League away games this season seeing both teams find the net.
Could Sevilla be caught short?
The Spaniards are at a disadvantage here, having gone a few weeks without playing a competitive match. They meet a Roma side who won 3-1 at Juventus on Saturday, so it’s safe to say the Italian side should be match-ready. While Sevilla have quality, they might be found wanting at the back.
Sevilla have been firing up front, scoring 15 goals in their eight matches in this competition this season. However, we don’t see them keeping out a Roma side who are in form. With the Italians seeing both teams score in eight of their last nine games, our first prediction for this clash is to back both to score.
Meanwhile, Sevilla have failed to win their last three Europa League games. With Roma playing well and looking good in this competition, they should hold the La Liga side We’re backing a 2-2 draw after 90 minutes as our correct score prediction for this one.
