Domestic football may be in short supply during the month of August but in its place, we’ll see the return of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. The two blockbuster competitions will be transformed into a straight knockout tournament, filling the void that has been left by the absence of UEFA Euro 2020 this summer. Today, we’re going to be taking a look at what should be an intriguing quarter-final meeting in the UEL between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sevilla.

Wolves

It’s a campaign that has lasted an astonishing 13 months, and you can bet Wolves fans aren’t ready to see it end just yet. From the qualifying rounds all the way through to the last eight of the competition, the West Midlands-based club have been able to maintain their forward surge of momentum that they’ve carried over from last season. They’ve got one hell of a squad that is full of superstars, but given how fatigued they looked in the last round, many wonder whether this is going to be a step too far.

Team News

The one big injury problem for Wolves is the absence of Jonny who came off in the win over Olympiacos, opening the door for Vinagre to start.

Sevilla

The late season surge of Sevilla saw them confirm their top four spot with relative ease, and now, they’re setting out to win the Europa League for a record-breaking sixth time. They’re slowly but surely flying under the radar of most heading into this knockout tournament, despite the ease with which they were able to dispatch of Roma. They’re the kind of team that will punish you for underestimating them, and Wolves need to be aware of that.

Team News

Gudelj’s availability is not yet known following his positive COVID-19 test a week ago whereas Vaclik is also a doubt. Elsewhere, Banega and Reguilon are both set to feature despite their expected departures from the club this summer.

Factors to Consider

  • Wolves beat Olympiacos to get to the quarter-finals, whereas Sevilla beat Roma.
  • Wolves have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.
  • Sevilla have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Wolves have scored seven goals and conceded four in their last six games.
  • Sevilla have scored eight goals and conceded one in their last six games.

Conclusion

It’s bee one hell of a journey for Wolverhampton Wanderers in Europe this season, but it’s a journey we believe is going to come to an end at the hands of the kings of the Europa League. We can picture the Spanish side coming straight at Nuno’s men, to the point where they race into an early lead. Wolves aren’t going to take it lying down, as you can probably imagine, which is why we believe it’ll be competitive heading into the latter stages of the game, but we still don’t think much can stand in the way of Sevilla progressing into the final four.
