Sevilla are always playing with the confidence of being Europa League’s most successful team ever. Los Rojiblancos already qualified for the next edition of the Champions League, but you should not have any doubts that they will try to win Europa League again. The manager Julen Lopetegui is looking for his first trophy with the club and the players are hungry for trophies as well.
In the previous round Sevilla eliminated Romania’s CFR Cluj, but they didn’t shine in the way we expected of them. Lopetegui’s team didn’t win neither one of these two matches against the Romanians, but went through after two draws. At the same time you should not underrestimate Sevilla – they remain one of the strongest teams in Spain and one of the big favourites for the Europa League trophy.
Roma reached the 1/8-finals after eliminating the Belgian side Gent. For Roma it would be important to win Europa League. The Wolves finished 5th in the Serie A, so winning this competition would be their only chance of playing in the Champions League next season. The manager Paulo Fonseca and his players are perfectly aware with this, so we believe they will make an effort to do it.
In conclusion we can say that we expect a pretty great game between Sevilla and Roma. It’s pity that there won’t be fans at the stands because it’s a match which deserves attention from the public. The result in the first leg could be really important for the whole tie. We expect to see some goals at the Sanchez Pizjuan.
Roma and Inter Milan are ready to offer us a great derby at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday. These two teams face each other in a fixture from the 34th round of the Serie A. Let’s take a good look at it.
After some awful period of negative results Roma finally started showing their true face again. The Wolves are in a run of three consecutive wins in the Serie A which is the reason why they got able to climb back to 5th place in the league. Most likely they won’t qualify for the Champions League as they are 12 points behind Lazio, but it’s still some improvement from them.
In the previous round Roma enjoyed their 17th win for the season. Paulo Fonseca’s team hosted Hellas Verona at home and celebrated a 2-1 win. Jordan Veretout opened the score from a penalty kick while Edin Dzeko doubled their lead in the end of the first half. This the Roma all of the fans want to see – a team which wins its games.
Inter Milan got back to second place in the Serie A after a win against SPAL in their previous game. The Nerazzurri were merciless at the Paolo Mazza winning the match with 4-0. It was not surprising as SPAL are currently the weakest team in the Serie A. Four different players scored for Inter. Antonio Candreva opened the score for the visitors while Biraghi, Alexis and Gagliardini scored in the second half.
Usually we see some good games between Roma and Inter Milan, so we are hopeful for a good spectacle at the Olimpico on Sunday. Both sides are in a winning form right now which makes this derby even more interesting. Inter are the team which do a better job this season, but Roma are in a run of three consecutive wins.
