Our prediction for this Europa League match:
A place in the Europa League quarter-finals will be at stake when West Ham and Sevilla square off against each other in London on Thursday evening. The Hammers did well to beat Aston Villa in their last Premier League game, and they are now on a quest to overcome a one-goal deficit in the tie with los Sevillanos. All Bowen, Coufal, and Ogbonna remain on the sidelines, but Ukraine international Yarmolenko is back to the squad.
The La Liga outfit, on the other hand, are likely to rely on their solid defence in the second leg. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Olympic Stadium, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Jordan is back from the domestic ban, while all Lamela, Suso, Papu Gomez, and Diego Carlos should miss out with injuries.
