Tip Sevilla - Roma
Just the one leg is being played to decide this Europa League last sixteen tie. Sevilla take on Roma in Germany with the winners taking on either Wolverhampton Wanderers or Greek champions Olympiakos in the last eight. Sevilla have a great record in Europe's second level competition with five victories including a hat-trick of wins between 2014 and 2016. They finished fourth in La Liga this season so are already guaranteed a place in the Champions League next season. Five of their last six league games were won with five clean sheets and only one goal conceded. They are on an unbeaten run of 16 games and have gone eight on the road without a loss. That's important as away form has often held Sevilla back. In the Europa League this season, Sevilla finished five points clear at the top of their group, winning five and losing the other. It wasn't so easy for them in the last 32 with them only getting past CFR Cluj on away goals.
AS Roma finished fifth in Serie A to clinch a place in the group stages of next season's Europa League. They'd love to win this season's competition though and get a Champions League place. The weekend saw them win 3-1 at Juventus, though the Serie A champions form has slipped a bit of late. Roma are in top form though with their last eight league games producing seven wins and a draw at second-placed Inter. 23 goals have been scored in those games but eight of their last nine matches have seen both teams score. Roma finished second in their Europa League group, three points behind Istanbul Basaksehir. They only won two of their six group games, though three were drawn. Both teams scored in five of their six group games. In the last 32, Roma beat Gent 2-1 on aggregate. They come into this game having won only two of their last seven Europa League games and only one of the last five away matches. A bet on both teams to score is the suggested wager to place.
Key points Sevilla - Roma
