Sigma Olomouc hosts Sevilla in a first leg from the Europa League playoffs
Sigma Olomouc hosts Sevilla in a first leg from the Europa League playoffs. These are our vip soccer bets for this first clash between these two sides on Czech soil.
Sigma reached the playoffs after beating Kazakhstan’s Kairat in the previous round of the competition. They won both games – with 2-0 at home and 2-1 in the second leg. But we can say that they didn’t have a lot of luck during the draw, because now they are facing one of the best teams in the tournament – Sevilla.
Meanwhile in the Czech Liga Sigma Olomouc did not start very well. They have lost four of their first five matches, winning just once – against Mlada Boleslav. In their last game Sigma suffered a devastating 1-4 loss at home against Banik Ostrava. Pavel Dvorak scored Sigma’s only goal in the game, but it didn’t help them much.
Just as expected, Sevilla didn’t have much of a trouble to eliminate Zalgiris in the previous round of the competition. The Andalusians won the first leg at home with 1-0, but in the second one they were much more dominant – 5-0. Pablo Sarabia and Nolito scored braces for Sevilla in Vilnius, while Arana added one more goal for the Spanish side.
In the Spanish La Liga Sevilla started with a bang, beating Rayo Vallecano with 4-1 in their opening game. The young Portuguese striker Andre Silva was the hero of the night, scoring a hattrick in Rayo’s net. Franco Vazquez added one more goal for Pablo Machin’s team.
Clearly Sevilla are the big favourite against Sigma Olomouc. It won’t be too much to say that they are even among the favourites to win the trophy as well. It would be a huge surprise if Sigma cause any trouble to the Andalusian side.
