Wolves vs Sevilla
Date: Tuesday, 11 August 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
The Wanderers might be determined to go all the way till the title, after failing to qualify for Europe via their league position. After intense competition, they had to settle for a seventh spot – falling painfully short of the cut-off.
Even more what would bother the fans is the fact that they had the same number of points as that of the seventh-placed Tottenham. As Jose Mourinho’s men had a slightly better goal difference of +3, they qualified for Europe.
Meanwhile, Los Palanganas were the fourth-best team in Spain by a whole mile, just below the three titans – Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid. They were so sure of qualifying for the Champions League, that they essentially were in cruise control mode in the final few game weeks.
Julen Lopetegui’s men have been one of the best teams in the history of Europa, whereas the Wanderers were just recently promoted from the second-tier Championship, a few seasons back. As such, the latter have a major handicap in terms of experience.
Moreover, they are immensely exhausted after their pursuit of a top-six finish in the Premier League as well. As such, expect a Sevilla win this Tuesday.

Wolves vs Sevilla: Prediction
The English contingent had recorded a 1-0 win at home in the second leg of their Round of 16 fixture over Olympicaos, after drawing the first leg 1-1 on the road.
Meanwhile, the Los Palanganas had recorded a 2-0 win over Roma in the previous round. The Spanish team had clear domination all through the game, and they had raced to a 2-0 lead even before half time.
As things stand, Lopetegui’s men have the upper hand. They are on a long unbeaten run of 18 matches, and had managed to win six of their last seven fixtures. Impressively, they have conceded a total of just one goal from these seven games.
Moreover, they are on an eight-fixture unbeaten away from home – essentially proving that this revamped format of the Europa won’t be much of a matter to be bothered about for them.
On the other hand, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were winless in four of their last seven overall games, and had lost several must-win games in the recent weeks – suggesting that they are not equipped to perform under pressure.
The Spanish contingent on the contrary are built for these kinds of situations. Remember their hat-trick Europa triumphs.
As such, expect Sevilla to make it to the semi-finals this Tuesday.
