Sevilla vs Roma
Date: Thursday, 6 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
This will probably be one of the best games in the competition. Both teams are in absolute peak form, and had been embarrassing teams left and right in their respective leagues towards the end of the season.
Especially with this being a one-off match, and that too at a neutral venue, we can expect both teams to have an equal footing, and to give the best of performances.
La Lupa particularly have been making people wonder, with the sheer number of goals scored by them, and it would be unfair to term them as a team coming from a defensive league any longer.
Meanwhile, Los Palanganas missed out on the podium in the Spanish league by a whisker, after they finished level on points with Atletico.
By the looks of things, we are gearing up for a goal-fest, as these two explosive squads take the pitch.
Sevilla vs Roma: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The teams have fought each other twice so far. However, both of these were friendlies. The first one had ended in a 6-4 win for the Italians, while the next one had ended in a 2-1 win for their counterparts. Thus 100% of match-ups so far have had goals from both teams as well as three or more goals.
Sevilla vs Roma: Prediction
Due to the pandemic the tournament was revamped, and what was supposed to be a two-legged tie has now been shortened to a one-off fixture. And we can expect both teams to come out swinging, especially with the kind of form they have been in.
Julen Lopetegui’s men are on an unbeaten run of 17 games, and had also won five of the former six fixtures. This stretch had included teams like Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Real Sociedad, Athletic Bilbao, Villarreal etc – some of the very best teams in the La Liga.
Moreover, they have scored two or more goals in all of their games against this upcoming opponent so far.
On the other hand, Paula Fonseca’s men are on a winning run of four matches, and had also won seven of their last eight fixtures – in the process of which they had scored a total of 23 goals. Moreover, they have scored three or more goals in their past four fixtures away from home.
Taking all these observations into account, expect a high-scoring encounter this Thursday between these two.
