Sevilla hosts Roma at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in a first leg from the 1/8-finals of Europa League. This is one of the big derbies of the competition right now. Let’s preview it in our football best betting tips for today.
Sevilla are the most successful club in the history of Europa League and now they are going to try to add another trophy to their collection. In the previous round Los Rojiblancos didn’t impress, but they still eliminated CFR Cluj after two draws – 1-1 in Romania and 0-0 at home. The fans probably expected more from the Spaniards, but they progressed and that’s the most important thing.
For Sevilla the 2019/20 campaign was successful when it comes to La Liga. Julen Lopetegui’s team successfully finished in the Top 4, so Sevilla will play again in the Champions League next season. We can say this was their main goal for the campaign, so it’s a success.
Roma’s only chance of reaching the Champions League now remains winning Europa League. The Italian giants finished 5th in the Serie A, so their season was not as good as they hoped for. We are still not absolutely sure that the manager Paulo Fonseca will remain at the club, too.
During Europa League’s 1/16-finals Roma successfully eliminated the Belgian side Gent. They scored a 1-0 win at the Olimpico while the 1-1 draw in Gent was enough for them to progress in the competition. Now against Sevilla it’s going to be much more difficult, though.
These are our football best betting tips for the Europa League game between Sevilla and Roma at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. These two teams will try to get a good result before the second leg in Rome. We have all reasons to expect a terrific derby between these two strong sides.
