Slavia Praha vs Sevilla : Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Thursday, 14th March 2019, @15:00
Slavia Prague made a mockery of the sports betting sites predictions by claiming a famous draw in the first leg. Can they finish the tie off at home?
In a week of eye catching results, Slavia Prague’s 2-2 draw in Seville has to be up there as one of the biggest. The Czech club were not fancied by the bookies to get anything from the first leg but are now in control going into their home game.
Sevilla head coach Pablo Machin will be pleased with the way his side performed in the first leg but will wonder how they now still need to get a result away from home to progress to the quarter final stage. The Spanish side will need to use all their experience to get the result they need in Prague.
If Slavia Prague need to slow down the game and keep this tight then they are exactly the right club to do so. The Czech side made it through six Europa League group stage games scoring only four goals so are able to nullify even the most creative opponents.
Sevilla are still in the European places in La Liga but are currently on a woeful run of form that has seen them drop down the table. They can still make it through to the next round but this is going to be a huge ask now and Slavia Prague will keep it tight – this could end in a 1-1 draw.
Sevilla are chasing this game now and that is exactly how Slavia Prague will like it. The home side don’t need to push the game and this could end up all square after 90 minutes.
Total goals under 2.5
Slavia Prague are the masters at keeping the score low so fans should not expect many goals in this one.
