Sevilla vs Roma Prediction & Pick
This is a matchup between teams that know what it takes to win. Sevilla is a six-time Europa League champion, while Roma recently won the Europe League Conference title in 2021-22. Sevilla snuck by Roma by a score of 2-0 in the only previous UEFA meeting during Round of 16 action back in 2020.
I expect a similar outcome this time around given Roma's recent poor form. The squad's 1-0 win over Leverkusen on May 11 is its only win in its last five matches. It's also just one of two games during that span in which the team scored a goal. Sevilla has posted a 3-1-1 record in its last five games.
I'll back Sevilla to get the job done as the team's championship DNA will prove to make an impact.
Final Score Prediction: Sevilla: 2 | Roma: 1
Sevilla vs Roma Best Bet
Roma has the defensive dominance to give Sevilla a run for its money considering it has not allowed a single goal in any of its last three games. It even took on 22 shots from Leverkusen on May 18, but didn't waver. Meanwhile, Sevilla held a powerful Juventus squad to just a pair of goals in two contests.
Odds have yet to be released for the over/under, so I'll opt to back a draw as I wouldn't be too shocked if extra time is needed to determine a victor. After all, extra time was needed for Sevilla to get by Juventus. Sit back and root for a great competition as this bet pays out at nearly double your wager.
Bet: Draw (+195)
