Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to book their spot in the semi-finals of the Europa League when they take on Sevilla in Duisburg on Tuesday night.
The Premier League club overcame Olympiacos in the round of 16 to advance to the final eight, while Sevilla impressively eliminated Roma from the competition to ensure that they would be present at this stage.
Wolves were unable to claim a Champions League spot for next season via their Premier League finish, ultimately finishing seventh in the table, losing their final league game of the campaign at Chelsea to fall behind Tottenham Hotspur.
Wolves could meet Manchester United in the semi-finals of this tournament next weekend, although they cannot afford to take Sevilla lightly in what will be the first meeting between the two sides in UEFA competition.
Reason for Wolves vs. Sevilla predictions:
- Sevilla have drawn nine of their last 18 competitive matches.
- Wolves have only lost two of their 16 Europa League matches this season.
- Wolves have only lost four of their last 18 games in all competitions.
- Three of Sevilla’s last nine draws have ended 1-1, while two of Wolves’ last three draws have been 1-1.
We’re not expecting an outright Wolves win though. Sevilla have drawn half of their last 18 matches and two of their last three in Europa. Three of these draws have ended 1-1, and with two of Wolves’ last three stalemates also ending 1-1 we fancy that for our correct score prediction.
Wolves will be desperate to impress in their first European quarter-final for 48 years, but Sevilla’s recent form has been excellent, and we just fancy the Spanish outfit to shade a close game on Tuesday night.
Sevilla Over 1.5 @ 1.91
