The interesting thing about those titles is that 15 years ago, the Spanish team had zero Europa League titles. All five titles came after 2005 to put them on top of all other teams in the competition. The team went as much to dominate the competition and win for three consecutive times from 2013 to 2016.
With their new head coach Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla are hoping to reclaim their title and win it for the sixth time. Looking at their season’s performances and statistics, Lopetegui’s men have a decent chance of winning the title. In La Liga, they managed to finish the season in 3rd place above Atletico Madrid. Also, they were on top of Group A in the Europa League. Since the team is exceeding all expectations with amazing performances, online sportsbook sites in Spain have them as favorites in their upcoming Europa League match.

Sevilla vs Roma Betting Preview – What Are Roma’s Chances?
Although As Roma is one of the most respected teams in Italy, the team is not as successful in Europe. 1991 was the closest Roma has ever gotten to win the Europa League. However, they lost the final against Inter Milan 2-1 on aggregate. Under head coach Paulo Fonseca, Roma are currently in 5th place in the Serie A table with 61 points and 3 more matches to play. However, Giallorossi have missed their chance to qualify for the Champions League and are fighting for a spot in next year’s Europa League.
Although, Sevilla are in a better position coming into the match, especially that they will have much more time to rest and prepare, Roma have always shown they are not an easy team to beat.
