With Europa League seeming to be Shakhtar’s mostly likely route for a Silverware this campaign as they are 7 points below leaders Kiev in the Ukrainian League. They will be hoping for a home win to give themselves advantage for the second leg of the game.

Sevilla came into this stage of the competition after a dogged fight with their Spanish rivals Athletic Bilbao in the quarter final stage which ended a penalty shoot-out, after a 5-3 win. The Andalusians will be hoping for a win or at least a draw to get an advantage over the Ukrainian side prior to the 2nd leg at their back yard.

Form comparison

Sevilla have dominated this competition recently, they are the title holders and they have won 4 of the last 10 Europa League titles, each coming back to back, they are hoping to be the first team to win it 3 times in a row.

Sevilla are not bad in shape, they have won 3 of their last 6 games, lost 2 and drew 1.

Sevillla have scored in at least a goal in their last 6 games.

Shakhtar are in a winning streak in Europa league, they have won their last 5 Europa league games.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Sevilla: Head-To-Head stats

These two great teams have met only two times which was in the knock-out stage of 2007 European competition, which both legs of the games ended in a 2:2 draw that led to extra time at L’Viv Arena before Sevilla came out victorious with an extra time goals. (Aggregate 5:4).

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Sevilla: Prediction

Both teams have equal chance in this game, which makes this a tough one, but with Shakhtar’s strong home form in Europe, it’ll be wise to stake a double chance on the home side as they are on a five game winning streak in Europe.

Sevilla’s last 6 games have recorded at least 2 goals and that it same for Shakhtar’s last 6 games with each team scoring in each of their last 6 games.

Shakhtar are a strong team in Europe competition this year and they have a greater chance of winning here, despite Sevilla’s legacy in Europa league.

  1. I can’t stand watching Liverpool go through to the final!! Sevilla on the other hand have dominated this competition and its time they get knocked out!!! I want Villarreal and Shakhtar in the final.

  2. Sevilla will beat Shaktar and Liverpool will beat Villarreal but it won’t be easy. I think Sevilla would win the Eurpa League this season again, they know how to do it.

  3. Sevilla are not making a great season, and they also found easy opponents until Bilbao. While Shakhtar, despite selling the star Alex Teixeira, easily defeated Schalke, Anderlecht and Braga. I would not be surprised if Shakhtar eliminates the “dictators of Europa League”.
