Slavia Prague vs Sevilla Prediction & Betting tips
It promises to be a wonderful football evening again this Thursday at the Sinobo Stadium in Prague, where local pride Slavia Prague will be visited by Sevilla in the return in the eighth finals of the Europa League. Last week’s first leg on Spanish soil ended in a 2-2 draw, so the Czechs smell blood.
Slavia Prague seemed to face a tough evening last week, as barely 24 seconds after the first whistle, goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar had to give in after an attack from Seville-striker Wissam Ben Yedder. The Czechs, however, showed mental resilience by battling back twice from goals through Miroslav Stoch and Alex Kral. With a 2-2 tie, the red and white were able to survive in San Pizjuan and, based on away goals, now have the best papers to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
However, it is not nearly that far yet, because Slavia Prague will have to survive at least ninety minutes. The Czech leader is in any case in blood form, because despite a missed penalty by Stoch, the team had no child in their own country last weekend with a 4-0 win at sub-top player Banik Ostrava. The team of coach Jindich Trpisovsky has been unbeaten in front of his own audience since August last year and even managed to keep the home side five in a row. Also in a European context this season, Slavia Prague did not have to cash in at its own Sinobo Stadium, with victories at Zenit Saint Petersburg (2-0) and Bordeaux (1-0) as the most appealing results. Cervenobili is therefore a team to be reckoned with.
With Seville the self-confidence is a lot less. The Spaniards had a very strong first half of the season, but since the winter break the red and white are in the corner where the blows fall. Last weekend, with a nice 5-2 victory over Real Sociedad, Sevilla finally showed signs of recovery again, allowing trainer Pablo Machin to catch his breath again. However, if Los Nerviones are eliminated in the Europa League on Thursday-evening, that will almost certainly mean its end in Sanchez Pizjuan.
With no less than five final victories in the last thirteen years, Sevilla naturally has a great reputation in the Europa League. Also this season winning this tournament is incredibly important, because with a sixth place in La Liga the team threatens to seize next to Champions League qualification. By winning the Europa League, however, Seville could still win a ticket for the European champion ball. The Spaniards therefore know what they have to do on Thursday evenings, although they have had a hard time with no fewer than six defeats in the last seven official duels outside Sanchez Pizjuan.
