Sevilla vs Roma
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 12 March 2020
Kick-Off at 17:55 UK
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
UEFA Europa League Round of 16 derby match is happening in Andalusia, Spain where Sevilla welcomes AS Roma.
It is still unknown if this duel is going to be played without fans like UCL matches between Valencia v Atalanta and PSG v Dortmund.
We are mentioning this because Sevilla’s crowd was always their 12th player on the pitch, so bettors should be careful with the full-time winner market.
Italian representative had a lot of time to prepare for the match as big majority of Serie A clashes were postponed. Roma are still seen as the underdog here, currently priced at 3.80 to conquer Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.
Sevilla vs Roma Head-to-head
These two sides have met twice in friendly matches back in 2015 and 2017. AS Roma were successful in the first clash 6-4 FT, while losing the second one 1-2 FT.
Sevilla vs Roma Prediction
It can be said that Sevilla’s recent performances in La Liga are good. The team has managed to collect eight points from the last four clashes in this division, beating Getafe and Osasuna, while duels against Atletico Madrid and Espanyol ended without winner.
Team’s main goal in this campaign is to secure one of UCL spots through La Liga. They are currently third with 47 points, with minimal advantage over other teams. The biggest star in the squad is Argentine midfielder Lucas Ocampos who scored ten goals so far.
Andalusans barely made it to the Round of 16. Score against Romanian side CFR Cluj was 1-1 on aggregate, and VAR has saved Sevilla in the 90th minute at this stadium. Roma also struggled a little bit against Genk, but Justin Kluivert’s goal in Belgium has pretty much sealed the deal.
In our opinion, these two sides have similar quality. AS Roma should take Europa League more seriously than Sevilla though, as they will hardly make it to UCL through Serie A achievements.
Draw seems like the most probable outcome in our eyes, as well as BTTS bet for the goals market.
