Sevilla have a significant lead over Fenerbahçe going into the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 matchup. The Spanish team defeated their Turkish opponents 2-0 at home in the first leg, leaving their hosts on Thursday in a precarious situation. Sevilla had already dropped three straight games going into the first leg, so the “Yellow Canaries“ would’ve been sure they could add to the rival’s troubles. At Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium, the visitors’ efforts for the first 56 minutes would’ve been appreciated, but goals from Joan Jordán and Érik Lamela turned the match in the favor of “Los Nervionenses“. Sevilla demonstrated their ability on the European stage, just like they did in the previous round against PSV Eindhoven. This may have rendered their pitiful domestic performances inconsequential as they continue to show hints that they can win this title once more. Yet, ensuring their LaLiga position is considerably more crucial, and Jorge Sampaoli would’ve been happy to see his team come from behind to defeat Almería by a score of 2-1 last Sunday. The fact that Sevilla entered that game level on points with opponents who are currently in 19th place in the Spanish league illustrates the pickle that Sampaoli’s squad would’ve been in had they lost. Lamela scored a crucial goal for the second game in a row after coming off the bench, by which the Argentine playmaker got six goals overall for the season. The latest results of Sevilla: • Victory over Almería with a score of 2-1 • Victory over Fenerbahçe with a score of 2-0 • Lost to Atlético Madrid with a score of 1-6 • Lost to Osasuna with a score of 2-3 • Lost to PSV with a score of 0-2 The disastrous earthquakes that struck Turkey at the beginning of February have seriously interfered with Fenerbahçe’s domestic schedule. Since then, Jorge Jesus’ team has only competed in two league games, and they remained idle over the weekend as Sevilla battled hard to earn a crucial three points. Fenerbahçe had gone seven games without suffering a loss before losing last Thursday, compiling six victories and 18 goals over that span. Michy Batshuayi might rejoin the Fenerbahçe offensive line after last week’s 23-minute stint as a substitute showed he was healthy. While Miguel Crespo and Joshua King might not make the team, Diego Rossi might be selected again. On the other hand, Sampaoli needs to strike a balance while selecting his Sevilla starting lineup for this match because Getafe is the next big game, which comes on Sunday. Lamela may be rewarded for his recent contributions with a starting spot, while Rafa Mir could get the nod in attack with Youssef En-Nesyri having started the last three games. The latest results of Fenerbahçe: • Lost to Sevilla with a score of 0-2 • Victory over Kayserispor with a score of 2-1 • Victory over Konyaspor with a score of 4-0 • Victory over Karagümrük with a score of 4-2 • Drew againt Adana with a score of 1-1 Head-to-head encounters These two met on four occasions in a 15-year span. Fenerbahçe one only one mutual match, the first one, in 2008. Sevilla prevailed in the rest of the duels.
It’s unlikely that Sevilla would easily advance to the next round given their away performance this season. Although a competitive draw seems to be the most likely result, we’d be astonished if the visitors didn’t score in Turkey. We’re predicting over 2.5 goals in this match. Bet-at-home set odds of 1.87 on such an outcome.
