The Europa League will have a game day following the Champions League. Several matches will take place as early as Wednesday. But, of course, the lion’s share is traditionally shifted to Thursday. One of the most curious matches will be between Sevilla and West Ham. The Spanish versus the English is arguably the central encounter in European football, including at club level. Who can win at Ramon Sanchez Pixuan? The site experts have made their predictions for the central match on March 10, 2022. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be found at 1 xbet.
Sevilla can gradually focus specifically on the Europa League
White Andalusia can generally be happy with the current season. Yes, it was a disappointing exit from the cup, losing the derby to Betis – where they also had to finish the game later than planned due to the rowdy fans. Yes, the Spaniards managed to drop out of the Champions League after the group stage, and from a fairly easy group. But they got into a less ranked, but “own” tournament, the Europa League, which they won frequently, including under Lopetegui. All the more so since Real Madrid have broken away in La Liga and can concentrate on their performance in the international arena. It started strongly, beating Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 at home in 1/16, then pragmatically, losing minimally away.
West Ham gradually lost momentum
The Hammers, under David Moyes, have rather unexpectedly transformed themselves from a survivalist (exactly the level the team was at when they were hosted by the Scot a couple of years ago) into a top-four contender, that is, for the Champions League. Technically there is still a good chance of achieving that too, but turnovers seem to be getting lost there. And there are plenty of contenders, led by Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham. The unstable London team doesn’t seem to have much of a chance there. West Ham also crashed out of the cup last week, losing to Southampton. Why not fight for the trophy on the international stage? There, in the group stage, the English won the group, and ahead of schedule. So Yarmolenko and company are only now entering play-off contention.
West Ham have hardly ever made it into a European competition before, with a few exceptions – and that all ended with a quick exit. This will be the first meeting with the Spaniards.
Sevilla are more experienced and are now playing at home – they must create the groundwork for overall success. Bet on White Andalusia (odds – 2.02).
