Sevilla will be travelling to the capital of Turkey, Istanbul, to take on Fenerbahce for the second leg of the Round of 16 match-up between both teams. Sevilla won the first leg 2-0. Fenerbahce put the Spanish side under much pressure, evident by their expected goals (xG). They had almost twice as much xG as Sevilla. Kick-off time is slated for 5:45 PM (UTC), Wednesday at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium.
Fenerbahce is having quite an impressive season. They currently sit in second place in the Turkish Super Lig. They have only two losses in 2023 – one to Super Lig leaders, Galatasaray and another to Sevilla in the reverse fixture.
Sevilla, on the other hand, are far underwhelming. Despite finishing 4th in the 2021/22 La Liga campaign, they are now 13th with a -11 GD. Their form isn’t all that better, either. They have 3 losses in their last six games.
The Yellow Canaries have four players with injury concerns, albeit none of them is a major player, but then the squad depth will always be needed. The missing players are Ezgjan Alioski, Gustavo Henrique, Luan Peres and Serdar Dursun.
Sevilla have three players missing due to injury – Alejandro Gomez, Karim Rekik and Marcao.
This is definitely one of the fixtures to watch for in this round of the UEFA Europa League. One would expect Fenerbahce’s output to increase since they are playing on their own turf and with the support of the home fans.
Our pick is Enner Valencia to score anytime in the match at odds of 2.10 (+110 American; 11/10 Fractional).
Reason: Fenerbahce will have a significant amount of possession and is a very attacking side. Who better to score than Enner Valencia? He has 23 goals and 4 assists in 20 Super Lig matches.
