Sevilla host Basel at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the second leg of the Europa League last 16.
Sevilla have been playing rather quality football in the La Liga this season. They are 5th in the league with 48 points after 29 matches played. They are 5 points behind Champions League zone spots. However we should mention Sevilla are way better at home. Emery’s side won 13 of their last 15 matches losing 2 (the second result in the league). Sevilla started their euro campaign in the group stage of the Champions League where they took 3rd place and advanced to the Europa League playoffs. They beat modest Molde in previous round (3:1). In the first leg against Basel Unai Emery’s men were dominating the game and recorded more goal attempts but both sides failed to break the deadlock.

Basel, in their turn, are topping the Swiss Superleague standings now. They recorded 56 points after 23 games leaving second Young Boys 14 points behind. They started their euro campaign in the Europa League group round. They won the group having gained 13 points. After that they passed through Saint-Etienne in the last 32 (4:4 on aggregate, but the Swiss side managed to advance further due to more goals on the road). Basel did not show much in the first leg and they will definitely face difficulties at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
As it was mentioned before Sevilla are deadly opponent at home to any side. That’s why the bookies consider them as undisputable favorite of the clash. On top of that they tend to score over 1 goal. Considered the above the hosts are expected to win with -1 handicap.
Prediction: Sevilla to win with -1 handicap.
