Sevilla vs Slavia Prague Prediction & Betting tips
In their own Sanchez Pizjuan, Seville will be visited by Slavia Prague on Thursday evening. The Spaniards are the big favorite, but the Czechs are in blood form this season.
With three final wins in the last five years, Sevilla has a reputation to uphold in the Europa League. It is therefore perfectly logical that the bookmakers consider the Spaniards again this season as a major candidate for tournament win. That the redwaters in the second largest club tournament in Europe feel like a fish in the water, we saw again in the previous round, in which the Italian Lazio with 0-1 and 2-0 victories easily put aside .
Nevertheless, self-confidence is currently at a low level in the Sanchez Pizjuan. The two victories on Lazio were the only two victories in the last eight official matches. Also last weekend, Sevilla had to eat the cheese of the bread again, because, in fact, the Spanish hekkensluiter Huesca lost 2-1. Trainer Pablo Machin initially had an excellent start to the season, but now he has to fear his job. For the time being the board keeps his hand above his head, but a new damper against Slavia Prague could well mean the proverbial drop.
At Slavia Prague, the atmosphere is undoubtedly a lot better, because the Czechs are working on a very strong season. Not only did the red-witches manage to overwinter in Europe for the first time since the European League was established, but in the sixteenth finals they also managed to deal with Racing Genk. The first match in Prague ended in a goalless draw, but on Belgian soil, the team of trainer Jindich Trpisovsky with a 1-4 victory unleashed. Especially Czech international Milan Skoda did De Smurfs a lot of pain with two goals.
Slavia Prague is of course the obvious underdog on Thursday night, but it is indeed a team to take into account. Last weekend, the Czech leader underlined her good form by throwing low flyer Bohemians 3-0 over the knee. With 57 goals in 23 league matches, the captains score this season on the assembly line, with Miroslav Stoch (eleven goals), Tomas Soucek (seven goals) and Skoda (seven goals) as the most surefire players.
