Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Sevilla will be looking to record yet another win over Akhisarsport when the two teams face each other at Spor Toto Akhisar Belediye Stadi on Thursday evening. Los Sevillanos hammered Akhisarspor 6-0 in front of home fans two weeks ago and they are seen as hot favourites to win Thursday’s football match. Pablo Machin, who took over the reins at Sevilla in the summer, is doing a great job with the Andalusian outfit and we predict that his men are going to prove their worth on the field once again. Pablo Sarabia has been in a fine form of late and we predict that the Spanish midfielder is going to make life difficult for the opposition defenders. Akhisarspor must be low on confidence following the heavy loss at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and seeing that they suffered a loss in each of their three group games in the Europa League, away win should be considered.
