Akhisarspor vs Sevilla
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 8 November 2018
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Spor Toto Akhisar Stadium (Akhisar).
This Europa Campaign was easy for the side from Spain and they will be favorites when they travel to Turkey this Thursday.
Akhisar will want to forget their last meeting with the Spanish heavyweights. They are yet to win a game in the league and have lost all their 3 group matches which puts them last in the group.
They are also failing to make an impact in their domestic league. In the Turkish league, they are 16th in the table with only 2 wins in their 11 matches so far.
In their last 7 matches across all venues, they lost 5 on the row and have only 1 win to go with it. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 6 of the last 8 games across all competitions. From their last 7 home fixtures, they won and lost 2 games each.
Sevilla had a great start to their La Liga season and are currently 2nd behind Barcelona. In the Europa League, they have 2 wins in 3 group matches and had a surprise defeat against Krasnodar.
But currently, they are on a 4 game undefeated streak in all competitions. A score of over 2.5 goals came in 8 of their last 10 matches.
The away form of the side from Seville is not so great. They are winless in last 4 away matches and have only 2 wins in last 6 games on the road.
Sevilla will be clear favorites in this match considering their last meeting. The number of goals they will score is the only question that needs an answer. A win will improve their recent away form.

Akhisarspor vs Sevilla Prediction
Sevilla may make some changes to their squad from their previous La Liga game. But it will not affect the result of this match. Pablo Machin’s team have won both the games in which they took the lead in the first half. In the light of the last h2h against the same opposition, I don’t see that to change. So a bet can be placed on Sevilla winning both at Halftime and Full time with 1.80 odd.
Sevilla has a star-studded attacking line-up which has the likes of Andre Silva, Ben Yedder and Muriel. The team has scored a whopping 12 goals in 3 matches, i.e. around 4 goals per game. In 2 of their matches in the UEL this season, a score of over 3.5 goals were produced and one of those games was against this same opponents. So we can bet on a score of over 3.5 goals in total with 2.00 odds.
