Sevilha vs Zalgiris – Europa League: This Thursday night at the Sanchez Pizjuan, Sevilla hosts Zalgiris
On another match of the 1st leg of the 3rd qualifying round for the Europa League.
Sevilla finished in 7th place of La Liga with 58 points conquered, thanks to a record of 17 victories, 7 draws and 14 losses.
Their goal ratio counted with 49 goals scored and 58 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.8 goals per match.
As we know, the Andalusian side is very strong playing in front of their own fans, where they conquer most of their points. On the previous tie, Sevilla has knocked out Ujpest with a double victory by 3-1 and 4-0).
Zalgiris find themselves in 2nd place of the Italian Serie A with 37 points conquered, thanks to a record of 11 victories, 4 draws and 3 losses.
In terms of goals, they count with 30 goals scored and 14 goals conceded, presenting an average of 2.4 goals per match.
Curiously, the team has been presenting better results playing as visitors, not getting any loss on the last 13 official matches they’ve played away from home.
On the previous round, Zalgiris has eliminated Vaduz drawing 1-1 away from home and winning by 1-0 at home.
Sevilha vs Zalgiris – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I expect to watch a match within the same style we’ve seen on the previous round against Ujpest, when the Andalusian side has beaten the Hungarians at home by 4-0.
Sevilla are clear favourites and they should surpass the “Over 2.5 Goals” on their own, not believing that Zalgiris will be able to score even 1 goal at the Sanchez Pizjuan.
It’s true that the team from Lithuania managed to score on the 4 previous matches of this qualifying rounds, but Klaksvik and Vaduz don’t even come close to the quality of the side led by Pablo Machin.
On the 2nd leg match, they might create Sevilla some difficulties, but this Thursday, I expect a one-way match, with the hosts winning by 3 or 4 goals to nil.
