Competition: Europa League
Market: Sevilla to win against Zenit
Odds: 13/20 @ Ladbrokes
Europa League holders Sevilla host Zenit tonight, with the Spanish La Liga outfit boasting strong form at a perfect time to get a result. The defending champions haven’t lost at home in the league or Europe all season, and haven’t lost a game in either competition since February.
They are favourites to win the first leg tonight as a result, but face a challenge with Russian Premier League leaders Zenit boasting attacking talent capable of threatening the Spaniards. Andres Villas-Boas’ side are on course to win their domestic title, and would love to win the Europa League to make it an unprecedented double, but Sevilla are near impossible to beat with home advantage.
Their defensive record in their own backyard is very impressive, so for Zenit to register a goal tonight would be a challenge in itself. As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 13/20 for the Spaniards to win the first leg tonight, which could see them all but through in the competition. The will have one foot in the semi-finals, but still need to get the job done in the second leg.
