Tuesday night’s (Aug 11) big Europa League match is Wolves vs Sevilla. Wolves finished seventh in the Premier League and have home advantage in the first leg. But after Sevilla finished fourth in La Liga, it is the Spaniards that the bookies have made favourites to win this match and the tie. However, this may be tighter than the bookies are predicting – and playing ‘no’ in the both teams to score market is the way to go.
Sevilla were quoted at a bigger price than Wolves before they beat Roma in a one-legged last-16 match but have now leapfrogged them into third-favouritism at 11/2. But it’s hard to compare leagues, and the only team both Wolves and Sevilla have played this season is Espanyol.
Sevilla beat Espanyol 0-2 on their travels but could only draw 2-2 with them at home. Wolves fared better at home with a resounding 4-0 win but lost 3-2 in Espanyol.
That win to nil at home has been a dominant factor for Wolves in their Europa League success so far this season, winning their last four home ties to nil. At least one of the two teams has also failed to score in 9 of the last 12 games in all competitions that Wolves have featured in.
Only one team scoring has also been a big factor in Sevilla’s recent form. Five of their six group matches produced that result and, while it was a poor group, Sevilla also stopped Roma scoring on Thursday. Sevilla also come into this match unbeaten in 18 matches in all competitions, with both teams failing to score in six of their last seven.
Wolves’ manager Nuno Santos looks sure to give the Spaniards plenty of respect and his starting tactics will surely to be frustrate Sevilla in their quest for an away goal. Those tactics may not work, but Sevilla are also perfectly capable of stopping Wolves scoring if the home side don’t get overly adventurous. No in the both teams to score market is a shade of odds-on and that looks a fair price considering all the factors.
