Sevilla vs Akhisarspor Prediction & Match Preview

Sevilla vs Akhisarspor
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 25 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sabchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).

Sevilla host Akhisarspor aiming to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Krasnodar in the previous round. Los Rojiblancos come into the match as massive favourites given the visitors’ form at the start of the season.

Akhisar have just not been pulling up any trees in both Super Lig and Europa League. They sit at the very foot of the standings in both competitions. Akigo, who have already made a managerial change this season, took only five points from nine domestic matches. They are yet to claim their first Europa League point after losing to both Krasnodar and Standard Liege so far in the continental campaign.

Sevilla stand much better in their respective division. They are just two points shy of table-toppers Barcelona in La Liga in spite of the weekend’s 4-2 defeat at Camp Nou. Pablo Machin has a deadly line-up of attackers led by the likes of Andre Silva, Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel. Silva and Ben Yedder combined the total of 12 goals in nine Primera Division matches so far and they will no doubts be the main threat to Akhisar’s goal on Thursday.

Sevilla vs Akhisarspor: Head-to-head

The two teams did not have the opportunity to play each other in the past.

Sevilla vs Akhisarspor: Prediction

Akigo are on a horrendous thread of four straight defeats in all competitions. They played particularly poorly in last two league games which saw the team conceded eight goals against Trabzonspor and Kasimpasa. Knowing they are now set to play Sevilla, it’s really hard to imagine any other scenario but a confident victory for the hosts here.

Sevilla are on a fabulous run in matches at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan where they won three on the spin in all competitions netting as many as ten goals in the process. The run includes wins over Standard Liege (5-1) and Real Madrid (3-0).
