Sevilla vs APOEL for the Europa League group match on Thursday at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.
We present the Sevilla vs APOEL prediction for the 2nd round of the Europa League. The match is scheduled for Thursday, 10/03/2019. Be sure to check out the free tip we have at the end of the post.
The Sevilla team comes from a season where they won 6th place in the Spanish championship. Thus, the team did not have a brilliant competition but got a good result for the team’s claims.
They faced the weak Qarabag team in their first Europa League game and won away from home 3-0, even though the match was played on a neutral ground.
Thus, Sevilla will probably have no difficulty in qualifying for their group for the next round. In addition to Qarabag and APOEL, they also compete for vacancies with Dudelange.
The team have been playing good games, but they still need some tactical corrections to face stronger opponents, which does not seem to be the case for this next match.
APOEL’s team comes from Cyprus to play for a place in the next round of the Europa League. However, its a team that is not at the level of a continental competition.
Thus, it comes from a country with no tradition in football, thus competing for a championship technically inferior to the competitions of other European teams.
The last match for the Europa League was against Dudelange, where they were defeated 4-3 playing at home. The game had two turns after the home team started winning by 2-0.
However, APOEL received a team that played advanced and open. Still, pushing up the game gave a lot of space and ended up taking the goals of defeat.
This is a match in which Sevilla is a big favourite to win. Thus, they have a much better team than APOEL, and they can play calmly to reach their goals.
Nevertheless, we are not sure what APOEL’s stance will be on the pitch. But even if the team plays defensively, they are unlikely to have a defence capable of holding the game for 90 minutes.
Thus, to formulate the free tip for the game, we think of a tendency for Sevilla to try to decide the game in the early stages, with excellent chances of success. Check it out below.
