The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Sevilla vs AS Roma PredictionIn one of the European matches billed to go down this week, Sevilla are set to lock horns with Italian giants AS Roma at the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena on Friday evening in a one-off Europa League crunch clash, both sides tussling for a ticket to the next phase of the competition.
Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - 1/8-finals
Venue: Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena (Duisburg)
Sevilla enjoyed a brilliant league campaign, finishing fourth on the standings having accrued a staggering 70 points from 38 games. In truth, Los Palanganas were on fire all through the season, and totally deserving of their top-four finish.

Head coach Julen Lopetegui has been receiving lots of plaudits for the amazing work he has put in at Sevilla since arriving at the club. For a club that merely managed to breach the top-six last term, Los Palangas are now a completely improved side.

Meanwhile, Roma missed out on Champions League qualification, owing to their poor start to the season. Knowing fully well that success in the Europa League will offer a backdoor entry to the next season’s edition of the CL, expect a strong performance from La Lupa come kickoff.

Sevilla vs AS Roma Team News

With their exploits in the La Liga this term, Sevilla fans have every reason to be ecstatic, and optimistic ahead of the coming season. If they manage to add a couple more quality players to the squad, Los Palanganas should be challenging for the league title next season.

Handed a pretty easy EL group comprising minnows like Apoel Nicosia, Qarabag and Dudelange, Sevilla comfortably strolled to the top of the log with 15 points from 6 games. Fielding second-string sides did not stop Lopetegui’s men from topping the charts.

Known as the most successful side in the competition, Sevilla have lifted the Europa League trophy a record five times. Since the Europa League’s rebranding in 2009, the Nervionenses have clinched the title three consecutive times in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

While Sevilla have already made the Europa League sort of theirs, their struggles in the Champions League are well-documented. They have never lifted the prestigious trophy in their illustrious history, much to the dismay of the club supporters. 

Meanwhile, Roma managed to finish second in Group J, toppling German giants Monchengladbach and a certain minnow RZ Pellets. Pitted against Belgian Pro League outfit Gent in the Round-of-32, the Giallorossi fought really hard to advance further, via a narrow 2-1 win.

Apart from enjoying a brilliant run in the Europa League, Roma were in tip-top form towards the end of the domestic league campaign. From their final eight fixtures, they sealed victories in seven, including a final-day win over league champions Juventus.

However, it is worth noting that La Lupa have struggled immensely against Spanish outfits, winning just once from their preceding eight games against La Liga sides. From these matches, they lost a massive five, failing to register a single goal in any of these games.

Sevilla, on the other hand, will be heading into this fixture on the back of a 17-game unbeaten run across all competitions. They have emerged victorious in each of their last two games against Italian outfits, showing their strengths against Serie A sides.

Sevilla vs AS Roma Predictions

With the Italian Serie A coming to a close only a week ago, Roma have not had as much of a breather as their Spanish counterparts who have had more than two weeks rest prior to this match. However, we cannot say for sure, if this will come as an advantage or disadvantage for either of these sides.

However, given both sides imperious run of form heading here, an exciting fixture littered with gilt-edged chances is on the horizon. Expect a low-scoring affair with no more than two goals between these sides at fulltime.
