Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Europa League

Sevilla welcome Shakhtar to Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in a huge clash that will see the winners progress to the Europa League final in Basel, with a Champions League spot at stake.

Sevilla come into this match in poor form in and will be looking to improve on that in this Europa League tie.  They have lost three of their last six matches, with the last result a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Espanyol away last weekend preceded by a 2-2 draw in the first leg of this Semi Final tie against Shakhtar.

Sevilla have won 4 of their 7 matches in the Europa League this season and are only two matches away from winning the competition for the third time in their history. They remain favourites at home and a goalless draw would see them progress as would a 1-1 draw but they will want to win to secure their place in the final.

They have won all of their three home matches in this seasons competition and they will look to maintain their unbeaten and maximum home run, maintaining that run will see them progress to the show piece final in Basel.

Sevilla will be looking for their 5th win in the competition and their first ever win against the Shakhtar Donetsk, having draw all three of their previous encounters.


Shakhtar Huge Underdogs 

The visitors Shakhtar come into this fixture on the back of a 3-0 win against Dynamo Kyiv at home last weekend and that result puts them into a great position ahead of this crucial tie in Seville.

Shakhtar come into this match in good form in all competitions, having drawn the first leg against Sevilla 2-2 last week they will need to win to guarantee their progression to the final or they need to draw 2-2 to take the tie to extra time.

They have a huge task in this match to beat a Sevilla side that have an excellent home record, they are unbeaten at home but Shakhtar have won all three of their away matches in this tournament so this should be a mouth watering tie.

Shakhtar come into this match unbeaten in 6 matches in the Ukranian Premier League and coupled with their Europa League form this season will be confident of progressing.

Shakhtar have won 5 of their 7 matches this season with 2 draws so they have been in excellent form in this years competition. Three of those five victories have come away from home so if they score first the pressure is all on Sevilla as they look to progress to the final of this competition.

They will also be looking to beat Sevilla for the first time, with all three of the previous meetings ending in 2-2 draws.


Sevilla head into this fixture with a record of one win, two draws and three defeats in their last six matches. Shakhtar have a record of five wins and one draw in their last six matches.

Both teams are 4/7 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Sevilla are Kevin Gameiro at 100/30 with Fernando Llorente at 7/2. For Shakhtar Eduardo and Facundo Ferreyra are at 15/2 with Taison at 9/1.

The last time these two sides met was last week in the first leg and they drew 2-2 and the odds of the same scoreline are 14/1.
