Lazio and Sevilla are two of the favourites to lift the Europa League title, and their first leg round of 32 clash should be an entertaining affair.
What are our bets on betPawa?
Lazio has learned to start grinding out wins lately in Serie A and although they're 7th on the log, they are only one point behind AC Milan in 5th.
Before a 2-2 draw at Eibar on Sunday, Sevilla hadn't drawn any of their previous five matches, either taking thrashings or handing them out. a 5-0 demolition of Levante was followed up by a 6-1 humbling at Barcelona, highlighting the unpredictability of Pablo Machin's team. Still, they remain in LaLiga's top 4 and will want to build on the club's excellent record in this competition. The visitors have won this competition three times in the past five editions.
Lazio kingpin Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is a booking away from being suspended for the second leg but is also an injury doubt and it remains to be seen whether he will be risked here. Top scorer Ciro Immobile is doubtful but should be fit. For the visitors, Aleix Vidal and Maxime Gonalons are doubts.
- There have been over 2.5 goals in seven of Lazio's last eight games in the Europa League, and in six of Sevilla's last seven.
- Lazio has not kept a clean sheet in Europe this season.
- Sevilla has won 12 of their last 14 matches in the UEFA Europa League.
- Sevilla is winless in their last three matches.
With Sevilla's pedigree in the competition but tendency to concede goals, we are backing over 2.5 priced at 2.05. Both teams to score is priced at a less risky 1.75.
