AVB Could KO Holders

Zenit showed enough in the first leg to suggest they can overcome a 2-1 deficit at home to defending champions Sevilla.

Sevilla may have fought back from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 advantage heading into the second leg, but the job is far from done for the Europa League holders.

The bookies think it is, making the Spaniards 1/2 favourites to progress, but Zenit are well worth a look at a best price of 7/4 with Skybet.

The Russians looked comfortable with their lead for most of the first game and Sevilla scored twice through their only two shots on target. Yet the away goal secured in the first half could still prove crucial. It’s a result that AVB would probably have taken prior to kick-off.

Let’s not forget that the former Chelsea and Spurs boss has won this competition himself, when in charge of Porto in 2011. On Thursday he can call upon vociferous home support and the return of four key men from suspension, including top scorer Hulk.
