One of the most interesting fixtures in this round of the Europa League will see Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sevilla go head to head. But, which of these sides will be able to book their place in the next round of the competition?
Europa League Preview
This fixture should be one of the best in the quarterfinals of the Europa League this season. Sevilla and Wolves both have a credible chance of winning this competition this term, and both sides will be aware that they will have to be at their very best to secure a victory and book their place in the semi-finals of the competition.
Wolves were made to work very hard to get themselves over the line in their round of 16 tie against Olympiacos. The Greek side travelled to the West Midlands knowing that they still had a chance of progression, as the two sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw from the first leg of their meeting. However, Wolves quickly took control of the fixture in the second leg and were able to get the 1-0 win that they needed to progress through to this stage of the competition. The only goal of the game was scored early in the fixture as Raul Jimenez converted his penalty in the eighth minute.
Meanwhile, Sevilla have been demonstrating their competitiveness since the restart, as their excellent form ensured that they were able to finish in fourth in La Liga. They ended the season by winning four of their final five fixtures of the season. Sevilla maintained that excellent run of form in the round of 16 tie against AS Roma, as they ran out 2-0 winners. Sergio Reguilon opened the scoring for Sevilla in that fixture, before Youssef En-Nesyri doubled the lead on the stroke of half time.
Wolves vs Sevilla Team News
Sevilla will go into this fixture without Nemanja Gudeij, who is recovering from a virus. Meanwhile, the only injury concern for Wolves ahead of this intriguing tie is Jonny, who isn’t expected to be back until September after picking up a knee injury.
Wolves vs Sevilla Prediction
These two sides are both high-quality, and this should be a fascinating game to watch. Wolves have been excellent throughout the season, and they play better when they don’t have possession of the ball. Sevilla will want to dominate the possession, which will mean Wolves will be able to hit them on the counter. However, the preference would be for the draw in normal time, before Wolves claim the win in extra time.
