Sevilla will host fellow Spanish side Valencia in this fascinating Europa League semi final first leg. We’ve got the best odds in our live betting odds comparison and analysis and betting tips here in our match preview: everything you need to cash in on this Europa League showdown!

Neither side is enjoying a vintage season, although a Europa League final or even triumph would certainly add a pleasing gloss to their campaigns. Sevilla are currently fifth after a strong run in La Liga and whilst they are unlikely to finish any higher that would still be their highest finish since 2010 and a marked improvement on their last campaign when they ended the season down in ninth.

Valencia finished fifth last time round but are currently eighth, 12 points behind their opponents here. As such Sevilla have to be fancied for victory and the odds reflect that, with the home side priced at just even money to win this first leg, a bet which looks strong given they have won five of their last six league games.

However, those betting on Valencia will point to the fact they have taken four points off their opponents in La Liga this year, including a 0-0 draw in Seville. The away side would probably settle for a draw here, not least because their away record in domestic football is poor – just the 14th best in the Spanish top flight.

Overall we expect the home side to scrape the win and our main betting tip has to be just that, given very generous odds of evens. The draw holds some appeal at betting odds of 13/5 but evens is simply too big for a side that has proved to be far more accomplished over the course of the season.
