Competition: Europa League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Seen as a real contender to lift yet another Europa League crown this summer, a high-flying Sevilla will face off against Wolves at the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena in Duisburg on Tuesday night.
Starting with Wolves, while Raul Jiminez’s fist-half penalty might have been enough for the Oranges to come past Greek giants Olympiakos in the Midlands last week, Nuno Espírito Santo’s men have begun to show some real signs of fatigue. In an extended campaign that has now passed the one-year mark, the Premier League oufit signed off this year’s domestic campaign with a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, a result that saw any chance of a top-six finish wiped off the table. Winning just a trio of their last seven matchups across all competitions and in for what should be another tough test on Tuesday night, Santo will be concerned by his side’s recent issues away from Molineux. Including dropping points away at both Sheffield United and Burnley, Wolves have managed to land just a single away goal in over 300 minutes of action.
As for the Sevilla, making another statement last week and picking up a stunning 2-0 win against what was a high-flying Roma side, the resurging Spanish outfit have enjoyed a remarkable second-half of the year. Shocking many and securing a top-four return in La Liga, the Whites really have found their feet under former Spain National Team boss, Julen Lopetegui. Including signing off their domestic campaign with a deserved 1-0 win against Valencia on home soil, Sevilla have won four of their last five matchups across all formats and are in the midst of a staggering unbeaten run that stems all the way back to February 9th. Recording yet another clean sheet against a Roma side that were coming off the back of an eye-catching 3-1 romp away at newly-crowned champions Juventus last week, it should also be highlighted that Los Palanganas have shipped just a single strike in any of their last seven appearances on the bounce.
Bet: Under 2.5 goals at Wolves vs Sevilla 4/6 for Tuesday’s Europa League quarter-final tie @ 888sport
