Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Thanks to a routine 4-0 win over Ujpest at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Sevilla moved one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League third qualifying round. Los Sevillanos are with one foot in the next round, but, no doubt, they will go for a win in the return leg as well. Wissam Ben Yedder, who found the net in the 4-0 win over Ujpest, is likely to lead the line for the visitors. The Hungarians, on the other hand, face an uphill task in Thursday’s football match, but one thing is for sure, they want to give fans something to cheer about. Ujpest’s pride is at stake, but given the quality of the away side, we are tempted to put our money on Pablo Machin’s troops. It has to be noted that the La Liga side are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the Europa League.
Highlighted Player (Ever Banega):
Ever Banega is a classy midfielder well known for his precision passes and clinical ball-distribution skills. Having come through the youth ranks at Boca Juniors, Banega was earmarked for bigger responsibilities from a younger age.
When Fernando Gago moved to Real Madrid in 2007, he became a first-team regular at Boca. In 2008, he made a big money move to Valencia for a fee of around €20 million. His stint at Valencia was marked with frustrating injuries amidst difficulties in settling in the starting XI. It was only when he moved to Sevilla in 2014 that his array of skills was in full display.
Playing under Unai Emery who managed him at Valencia, Banega soon became the lynchpin for Sevilla. He was the cornerstone of their Europa League triumphs for the past two years. Banega’s pedigree in national colors is also unmatched having won an Olympic medal in 2008 and appearing in three Copa America tournaments.
