Competition: Europa League
Market: Shakhtar to win against Sevilla
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
Shakhtar Donetsk play hosts to holders Sevilla in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final clash tonight, and are big favourites to come out on top to put one foot in the final. Shakhtar have impressed in the competition this season, and are hoping to take advantage of the visitors’ poor away form.
Coming off the back of five consecutive wins in the Europa League, Shakhtar are in fantastic form at the perfect time. They thrashed Sporting Braga 4-0 at home in the previous round to make it this far, and will fancy their chances of coming out on top given the contrast in results ahead of tonight’s meeting.
Sevilla have been far from consistent on the road in the Europa League this season, and such poor away form might be their achilles heel. The Spaniards have won just once on their travels in the European competition ahead of this evening’s clash, and will be very wary of the attacking threat of Shakhtar.
Nevertheless, the home side are being tipped to win in the first leg, and Bet 365 are giving odds of 6/4 for Shakhtar to see past Sevilla tonight.
