Sevilla - Borussia Dortmund

UEFA Champions League
Asian Handicap
Pick: Sevilla (0)
Odds: 1.84
Stake: 1

Match date: 17/02/2021

Sevilla takes on Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 knockout tie. In the upcoming days of this clash I was thinking on taking Sevilla (0) but odds were not so good and instead I was opting for a -0.25 on Sevilla, but since in the last couple of hours odds went up on Sevilla and we find odds around 1.86 for (0) on Sevilla I will take this type of bet which offers more security.

Sevilla coming to this match in great form past couple of months with 16 wins in their last 20 matches. Since the beginning of the year they have been the more in form team in Spain and they have suffered just one defeat from Atletico in Madrid. Since that defeat Sevilla has responded very well and has won 9 consecutive matches keeping an amazing 8 clean sheets and have 7 clean sheets in row coming to this match. 

Sevilla’s objective this season is to finish in top four in Spain and advance further in cups, where they are specialists. With the last win against Huesca they have now an advantage of seven points from the fifth team Sociedad and also after securing a great victory 2-0 against Barca in first leg of the semi final copa del rey, I expect them to be fully focused in this clash. If they pass through Dortumund it would be their second time in 1/8 of Champions League, so motivation should be high for Sevilla. In last match against Huesca, Lopetegui made a little rotation to the team and rested a couple of starters like En Nesyri, Suso, Kounde and Fernando which shows that they are well prepared for this clash. 

On the other hand, Borussia coming to this match after a really bad period lately which culminated with the sacking of their coach Favre, but also the interim coach didn’t make any significant change and Borussia has achieved poor results lately. 

Due to this bad run Borussia is losing ground in Bundesliga and currently sits in sixth place six points behind Frankfurt. Beside this poor form also a lot of missing players are making things worst. 

For today’s clash Borussia will be without first GkBurki, defenders Piszczek, Zagadou and Schmelzer. They will miss also Witsel and Hazard in midfield. Delaney didn’t travel with the team since he expects his first child. Thomas Meuniercould be back in the team, but very probably will not play tonight after coming from the injury. 

To sum up I believe that Sevilla has all the requisites to make a good result tonight as they are the more in form team and have less absentees for this clash. I belive they will take advantage of the current situation of Borussia and I expect them at least not to lose this match.
