Why Fenerbahce Can Beat Sevilla
Fenerbahce had a seven-game unbeaten streak before they faced off with Sevilla. After a week’s rest with no games in between, the Yellow Canaries are determined to impress the fans at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium in Kadıköy, Istanbul.
Why Sevilla Can Beat Fenerbahce
Sevilla’s run this season has been a disappointment. They are now in 13th place, with relegation to La Liga 2 still a possibility as 18th-placers Getafe has two points left to catch them. Their 28 points earned in 25 games have been much different than their fourth-place finish in the Spanish top flight last season. With a -11 goal differential, the Sevillistas would need to make some magic in their return to domestic games.
Jorge Sampaoli’s men have found some momentum in European contests. Sevilla recently win the first leg of the Europa League Round of 16 against Fenerbahce. Erik Lamela and Joan Jordan appeared in the scoreline for Sevilla, where they also had 53% ball possession and five shots on target. They recently won against Almeria in their home turf. Almeria had the early lead two minutes into the game, but Lucas Ocampos and Erik Lamela scored the goals for the Blanquirrojos. That game also saw Sevilla put up 27 shots but only five were on target.
Sevilla only had three games in the Europa League, where they won the previous round against PSV Eindhoven. The Sevillistas would need to match their La Liga stats of 12.6 total shots, 4.9 corners, and 5.6 successful dribbles to win this one. They have a decent 1.2-goal conversion on a 56.3% ball possession rate in Sapin’s top flight. They are also winning 50.1% and 49.6% of the ground and aerial duels, respectively, along with 14.6 tackles and 14.4 clearances. Sevilla currently has a 2-4-6 away record, so they will be challenged to make an impressive outing against the Turks.
The Blanquirrojos will seek to start a new winning streak. Sevilla will look toward Youssef En-Nesyri, who had five goals in La Liga, and Pape Gueye, who had three assists. Oliver Torres and Erik Lamela also have four goal contributions in Spain’s top flight, while there are also five other players who each had three goals and assists combined.
Sampaoli’s roster is also suffering some depletion to the unavailability of key players. Karim Rekik and Marcao are out. En-Nesyri will be the central striker with Oliver Torres and Bryan Gil on the wings. Ivan Rakitic, Fernando, Marcos Acuna, and Jesus Navas will take starting roles in the midfield. Morocco international Bono hopes to continue building up his goalkeeping resume since his World Cup performances.
Final Fenerbahce-Sevilla Prediction & Pick
Fener certainly does well on their home turf, but the two-goal advantage of Sevilla is a lot to overcome. The Turks will be on the hunt for goals but the Spaniards will take this victory.
Final Fenerbahce-Sevilla Prediction & Pick: Sevilla (+210), Over 2.5 goals (-104)
