Competition: Europa League
Market: Sevilla to qualify
Odds: 1/2 @ Bet 365
Sevilla travel to face Zenit Saint-Petersburg tonight in the Europa League quarter-finals, boating a slim lead from their first leg victory at home. The Spaniards go through if they can avoid defeat this evening, but it will be far from easy, given how strong the Russian Premier League leaders are on home soil.
However, they did drop out of the Champions League to make it into this competition, and have been beating on two further occasions, so Sevilla stand a good chance of getting a result. Andres Villas-Boas’ side are on course to seal the title, and have real attacking talent capable of being a handful for any defence, but Sevilla re the defending champions, and have the quality in their side to keep Zenit at bay.
A 2-1 home win in the first leg puts them in great shape to progress into the next round, and Bet 365 are giving odds of 1/2 for Sevilla to eliminate Zenit Saint-Petersburg to reach the semis. The La Liga outfit won the competition last season, and have been the most consistent side in Europe this time round too.
