Europa League Odds
Sevilla went 19-13-6 in La Liga play this season to finish fourth in Spain’s top level of soccer. More importantly, the Los Palanganas have bee fantastic in the Europa League since the restart by recording three straight wins, including a stunning 2-1 win over league prohibitive favorite Manchester United on Sunday.
After Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring for Man United at the nine-minute mark, Suso scored the equalizer at the 26-minute mark and Luuk de Jong capped off their win with a strike at the 78-minute mark. Sevilla won the possession battle 53-47 percent and took nine shots with three of those on goal. Defensively, Sevilla was stunningly good despite allowing a whopping 20 shots and seven on target. Sevilla has scored 5 goals over their last three matches while conceding only one goal. Sevilla has also won the Europa League every time they’ve reached the finals.
Inter went 24-10-4 to finish second to Juventus in Serie A play this season. The Black and Blues have also won three straight Europa League matches including their emphatic 5-0 spanking of Shakhtar Donestk on Monday. Lautaro Martínez opened the scoring with a strike at the 19-minute mark and added another at the 74-minute mark. Romelu Lukaku also found the back of the net twice at the 78 and 83-minute marks while Danilo D’Ambrosio scored at the 64-minute mark. Inter has scored an impressive nine goals while conceding just a lone goal defensively.
- Inter scored two or more goals in 14 of their last 16 games.
- Sevilla conceded 20 shots in their semifinal win against Man United
- Inter has won eight of their last 10 games in all competitions.
- Inter has scored exactly two goals in four of their last five matches.
While Sevilla and Inter have clearly been two of the best teams in the Europa League this season, I’ve got to go with unbeaten Inter to get it done, mostly because they’ll have the best player on the pitch in superstar striker Romelu Lukaku, who has set a new league record by finding the back of the net in a mind-boggling 10 straight matches.
While Sevilla has been fantastic defensively, Inter just keeps finding ways to win, even if they get into a hard-fought ‘street brawl’ kind of matchup. Lukaku scored a team-high 23 goals in 36 Serie A matches this season and he, along with teammate Lauturo Martinez (14 goals) established themselves as the highest-scoring duo in Europe’s top-flight following their blowout win of Shakhtar Donetsk. I’m expecting Sevilla to keep it close because of their defense, but Inter can score at literally any moment and that’s why they’ll win this huge Europa League clash.
Pick: Inter 3 Sevilla 2
