Devil’s Wager – Betting guide to Sevilla vs Shakhtar Donetsk

Sevilla host Shakhtar Donetsk at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final tie on Thursday priced as bet365’s 8/13 favourites to win in regulation time and as 1/5 favourites to progress into the final. Shakhtar trade 9/2 and 7/2 respectively in these markets.

Sevilla have dominated this competition in recent years, winning the last two renewals to take their tally to a record four trophies, all of which have come in the last decade. Off the back of a 2-2 draw away from home, they can sit tidy in the fact the have two comfortable away goals. To qualify is’t good enough, at 2/9 you would have to bet too much, but to win in 90 mins strikes a good at 4/6.

At around the same price, you can back both teams to notch at around 4/6 which would have collected in the Spaniard’s last three games while Shakhtar have scored in all of their last 10. If you fancy Sevilla to put their recent form behind them then the 2/1 about a home win with both sides scoring may appeal with in-form striker Kevin Gameiro.

Taking of Kevin Gameiro, you can find the french international at 12/5 to score first, and considering he is the main outlet of the Spanish side, you can figure out why the odds are such, alongside nine goal Taison who trades 11/4 to net anytime.

We fancy Sevilla to progress with a victory in regulation time on Thursday; however, the fact that they have kept just two clean sheets in their last six home games makes backing a home win with goals for both teams and +3.5 goals appeal at 11/5 and 13/8.
