Europa League Final Tip
Sevilla should retain their trophy with the added bonus of Champions League qualification now thrown in.
We may have successfully tipped Dnipro to overcome Napoli in the semi-finals but lifting the trophy will surely prove a step too far for the Europa League’s surprise package.
Sevilla are gunning for a record 4th UEFA Cup/Europa League crown and the Spaniards know-how of the big occasion can see them over the line again here.
The daunting challenge for the Ukrainians is overcoming nerves and a bit of a goalscoring deficiency all on the same, massive night in Warsaw. Dnipro haven’t scored more than once in their last six Europa League clashes which shows the strain put on the defence.
In total the La Liga side have found the net twice as many times (26 goals) as the underdogs (13) in the competition proper this season.
The holders are also unbeaten in nine Europa fixtures and have a far superior overall record (W10 D3 L1). Dnipro have done brilliantly to get here when you compare their match statistics (W6 D4 L4).
There should be a slight gulf in class in this final and Sevilla should win to nil at best odds of 8/5 with Bet365.
