Sevilla vs Lazio | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Sevilla has a nice chance to eliminate one of the biggest names in this stage of the Europa League, and to reach the 1/8 finals of this competition. Lazio is looking a bit lost since the start of the campaign, and the Sky-Blues are not showing their true potential ever since. They have nothing to lose tonight, but that just might be the moment when they start shining.
Sevilla will no doubt focus on the Europa League once again and try to win another title. They are coming into the game after losing in the domestic championship. Meanwhile, Lazio too, lost in Seria A, also on the road. Though, that won’t have much influence on Wednesday night.
The only win in the past six games was the one in Rome last Thursday. Sevilla has three defeats, and one draw along with that, and their form is definitely in decline. After a strong start, something happened with them, and the free fall started. Villarreal demolished Rojiblancos on Sunday with 3-0, but we need to point out that Sevilla didn’t deserve to lose that much. They had their chances, but the execution was too bad. Results at home are slightly better, and except for a loss against Atheltic Bilbao, Rojiblancos posted two wins and draws apiece over the last month.
The Sky-Blues are playing in waves. Three games without a defeat, then two losses, then again three wins in a row, followed by two failures. Simeone Inzaghi’s team is highly unpredictable, and that’s the case with them in the last few seasons. For example, they defeated Marseille twice, and after that lost to Apollon Limassol routinely 2:0. Because of that, the majority of tipsters avoid placing bets on them. In recent times, matches they play are often without goals. Only one in previous five saw more than two scores.
Latest Team News
Joris Gnagnon and Maxime Gonalons are ready to play, while Parreu and Arana are still under a question mark. Nolito is sidelined for at least six more weeks. Lazio has enormous troubles before this event. Sergej Milinkovic Savic and Wallace are definitely ruled out, while Parolo, Luis Alberto, Jordan Lukaku and Valon Berisha are all doubtful. That is almost half of the starting lineup, and be sure to check this before the game starts.
Match in Rome was the first meeting between these two teams. It was decided early on, after only 22 minutes, when Wissam Ben Yedder netted a goal. That was the only shot on goal Sevilla had in that contest. Though they were a bit better and left a stronger impression when looking at the overall situation on the court.
Odds and Predictions
The home team is a favorite in this match, a huge one. The odds on their triumph are 1.75, while Lazio’s victory is valued with 4.75. A draw is 3.50.
Sevilla vs Lazio | Top Betting Tip: Sevilla (2-0)
We believe that Simone Inzaghi isn’t going to risk for some of his wounded players to pick up an injury in Spain and to miss Serie A contests. According to several sources, Lazio is more interested in the domestic championship than in Europa League, which is why younger of Inzaghi brothers will probably spare all the doubtful players from playing in this one. That will make Sevilla’s job easier. Though the hosts would be our choice anyway, even if all the above listed Lazio’s players were healthy. The Spaniards are masterful in this competition, and they have a huge motive whenever they appear in it. That is why we propose to invest your cash in their win. When talking about efficiency, don’t expect too many goals. Our recommendation is 2 or 3 max. Final prediction, Sevilla – Lazio 2:0.
