Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Schaunisland-Reisen-Arena when Wolverhampton and Sevilla take on each other in the Europa League quarterfinals. The Wolves proved their worth in the two-legged tier against Olympiakos Piraeus, but it has to be noted that Nuno Espirito Santo has some selection concerns ahead of the Sevilla clash. Jonny, who picked up a knock in the 1-0 win over Olympiakos, is unlikely to feature against los Sevillanos, while Daniel Podence is sidelined through suspension.
The La Liga outfit produced a brilliant display in a 2-0 win over Roma, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for the Wolves in Duisburg. Sevilla are eager to win their sixth Europa League title of the 21st century, and they should take advantage of the home team’s selection worries. A man to keep an eye on in the Spanish team will be Lucas Ocampos, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Highlighted Player (Adama Traore):
After starting his youth career at Hospitalet, Adama Traore moved to Barcelona football academy La Masia in 2004. The pacey winger made a great progress during his spell with the Catalan giants and it has to be noted that he scored eight goals in 63 appearances for Barca B.
