Sevilla vs Lazio
UEFA Europa League
Date: Wednesday, 20th February 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla).
After securing the all-important away win in their tie against the Eagles, Pablo Machin and his men get prepared to play hosts at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. Their confidence will be sky-high considering their clean sheet, away goal, and win in the first leg.
Spanish sides have consistently dominated European competitions in the last few years. Hattrick wins were repeated both in the Europa League, as well as the Champions League. And the Filigrees played a major role in it with the three back-to-back titles in this competition being recorded by them.
The edge surely lies with the hosts of this tie, but their opponents won’t make it easy though.
Since the Serie A title already seems out of the question, with Juventus putting in a mile-high cushion, the White and Sky Blues will be desperate to progress to the next round of this tournament. It might backfire though, as the team from Seville rightly knows how to take advantage of this misery.

Sevilla vs Lazio Prediction
Le Aquile is predominantly on the backfoot considering they have no other option but to attack. They are behind by one goal in aggregate, and on top of that, the aforementioned is an away goal. Los Filigranas, who have tons of experience in this competition, know how to set their trap in such a particular situation.
And even if the visitors manage to figure out the tactic, they have no other go but to walk right into it. The things the away-goal rule make you do!
Moreover, this venue has been such a stronghold for the Great of Andalusia. They have lost just twice in their last 21 home-ties, meanwhile also recording 16 wins. They also managed to record two or more goals in their last three matches in front of the home crowd, as well as in five of their last seven.
At the same time, Simone Inzaghi’s men have registered just two wins in their last nine road trips. And importantly, the wins came against Bologna and Frosinone, either of which is locked in for relegation to Serie B next season.
Indubitably, the hosts are going to take the win this Wednesday, as these observations straightforwardly suggest.
