Sevilla FC vs Roma Free Betting Tips
Absent from the Champions League this season, Sevilla FC had to settle for a place in the Europa League. However, the club took this competition very seriously and flew over its group, finishing first ahead of APOEL Nicosia, Qarabag and Dudelange, winning 5 wins in 6 games. Opposed to Cluj in the Round of 16, the Andalusians on the other hand had a lot more trouble against the Romanians and only passed thanks to the away goal rule (1-1 away, 0-0 in home). In La Liga, the Blanquirrojos had a very decent season, taking 4th place behind Real, Barça and Atlético. Regular, Julen Lopetegui’s men have remained undefeated since February and have won 5 successes in their last 6 days, the last of which against Valencia in mid-July (1-0).
For its part, Roma finished in C3 in 2nd place in a fairly tough 1st round group which included Istanbul Basaksehir (1st), Borussia Mönchengladbach and Wolfsberg with a fairly unimpressive record of 2 wins, 3 draws and a loss. In the round of 16, the Romans then eliminated La Gantoise by winning the first leg (1-0) and then holding the draw in the return (1-1). On the national scene, the Louve club ended the exercise in 5th place, insufficient to find the C1 via the championship. Irregular this season as often in recent years, Paulo Fonseca’s men have, however, finished by winning 7 successes in their last 8 meetings, including the last away against Torino (2-3) and Juventus already champion (1-3 ).
The workforce for Sevilla vs AS Roma
On the Sevillian side, titular goalkeeper Vaclik and midfielder Fernando have both taken advantage of the last few weeks to come back from injury and they should be able to play this meeting. On the other hand, the Serbian international Gudelj (positive for the coronavirus) should miss this meeting. Offensively, the former Marseillais Ocampos finished top scorer of this formation in La Liga with 14 goals.
Excellent playmaker Pellegrini, substitute goalkeeper Mirante and potentially titular defender Santon were at the Roman infirmary in the last game against Juve but the first named is expected to return. Hard blow for Roma, the club could not obtain the extension of the loan of Smalling which had become essential in central defense. Disappointing, the former Parisian was not included on the list of players who can play at the end of this C3. With 16 goals scored this season in Serie A, the Bosnian Edin Dzeko is still formidable.
