Sevilla vs Lazio Europa League

The match is over.
Score: 2-0.

This is perhaps the standout tie of the Europa League Round of 32 with five-time champions Sevilla playing Italian giants Lazio. Sevilla edged the first leg 1-0 in Rome and are favourites to progress through to the last 16 of the competition.

Predictions

Wissam Ben Yedder’s strike in Rome gave Sevilla a seemingly vital 1-0 victory in the first leg of this Europa League Round of 32 match.

Sevilla have won a remarkable five Europa League titles – at least two more than any other club – with all titles coming from 2006 onwards.

Los Rojiblancos won the 2006 and 2007 titles under Juande Ramos before winning three crowns in a row under Unai Emery between 2014 and 2016.

Lazio reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League last season but crashed out 6-5 to RB Salzburg in a pulsating clash.

The hosts will be favourites to continue their progress in this competition due to possessing home advantage, and slightly superior form and quality over Lazio.

The home side are favourites to win this game mainly based on their home record in Europe – a 2-1 triumph for the Andalusian side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

24 goals flew in across Sevilla’s six Europa League group stage matches this campaign while 32 goals have flown in across Lazio’s last nine matches in the competition. This game is set to have a lot of goals and this is among the best online betting odds for this midweek round of action.

Sevilla have won just three of their last nine matches in competitions and having already won the first leg, there is a higher chance that they take the draw in this game in order to clinch their progression to the next round.

Statistics

Head to Head

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly given the European exploits of both clubs in European competition, Sevilla’s 1-0 win in Rome last week was the first ever meeting between the two.

Stats

  • Sevilla’s five Europa League titles mean they have won the competition at least twice more than any other club.
  • Sevilla have won their last 20 knockout ties in the Europa League – a competition record.
  • Lazio have tasted success previously in European competition, winning the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1999 and the UEFA Super Cup later that year.
  • Lazio reached the UEFA Cup final in 1998, but went down 3-0 to Italian rivals Inter.
