Sigma Olomouc vs Sevilla
Europa League Qualification Play-off
Date: Thursday 23rd August 2018
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Andruv Stadion (Olomouc).
Sigma Olomouc have done well to get to this stage of the competition but they face an almighty uphill task to make it to the Europa League proper as they will be facing a team that has won the competition on numerous occasions in Sevilla.
The Spaniards will start as odds on favourites to take an advantage back home and that will come as no surprise to anyone. They were brilliant in the opening weekend of La Liga where they won 4-1 away to Rayo Vallecano and it would be seen as one of the big shocks in football to see Sevilla get knocked out.
Sigma will need to have a game plan especially being at home if they are to frustrate their opponents and the objective will be to keep the tie alive for the 2nd leg, but any way you look at this it will be a very tough match. Sevilla coach Pablo Machin has settled well into his job and understands the clubs principles which is to always attack and play attractive football.

Sigma Olomouc vs Sevilla: Prediction
Sigma would do well to go in at half time and the score is 0-0. There will be a lot of pressure put on the team and Sevilla are pretty relentless at the beginning of games. Our bet is to see Sevilla get 2 or more goals as our main choice.
But Sevilla can also tire and Sigma have the qualities especially being at home to get something out of this game. They might lose in the end but they can score a goal and perhaps give themselves some hope for the next match.
