Betting tips & odds comparison 06.08.2020 Sevilla FC - AS Roma
Betting Tip for matchday 2 of the 2019/2020 Europa League between Sevilla FC and AS Roma. The game will be played at Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena (Duisburg, Germany) on 06.08.2020 at 18:55.
Sevilla v AS Roma
Sevilla and Roma face off in a one-off round of 16 clash in Germany in what is arguably the juiciest tie of the round.
The Europa League has become synonymous with Sevilla in recent times. They have won it a record five times which is more than any other club in the history of this competition.
Despite rolling through the group stages, they barely made it out of the second round after a 0-0 second leg at home saw them edging out CFR Cluj on away goals, after drawing 1-1 in Romania.
That near-miss seems to have jolted them into action as they went undefeated in the 11 matches they played since the restarted season winning five and drawing one of their last six La Liga fixtures to finish an impressive fourth.
AS Roma ended the Serie A season on an 8-game unbeaten run that had them securing the fifth slot. Seven of those games ended in victory, including a final-day 3-1 away win over champions Juventus, albeit with both teams largely fielding second-string sides as the outcome of the game was inconsequential.
Their return to the restarted Serie A season was quite rough though as they lost the first three games to AC Milan, Udinese and Napoli before winning 7 of the remaining 8 games.
The fifth-place finish means they qualified for Europa League next season. Unless of course they go all the way and win this one which will earn them a place in the big one – the champions league.

Sevilla’s backbone has been their defensive fortitude. Los Nervionenses have conceded just 34 goals in their 38 La Liga games all season.
