Sevilla hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg and neither we nor the bookies see Valencia being able to get themselves back into the tie. But they will certainly give it a go, and football never fails to surprise and amaze, so you never know. Either way we’ve got a couple of betting tips that will help you win some cash so read on for our match preview with the latest betting odds and analysis.

The first leg of the all-Spanish Europa League semi final saw a relatively even match in terms of possession and territory, but goals from Stephane Mbia and Carlos Bacca were the difference as Sevilla took a decisive lead. Having won 12 of their last 15 matches (prior to the weekend game), including victory over Real Madrid, Sevilla look in great shape to make it to the final.

The bookies agree and price them at best betting odds of just 1/6 (Coral) to finish the job in Valencia. We think Sevilla will attempt to take things steady in the second leg, minimising the chances they give away and taking few risks. They would be more than happy with a 0-0 draw, and backing the draw might not be a bad shout at best odds of 5/2 with Bet365.

Valencia, though, have taken four points from their two league games against Sevilla this season and while we don’t think they’ll have enough to progress, we can see them getting a narrow home win, which is available to back at betting odds of 5/2 with 888sport. Overall we anticipate a quiet opening 45 with the match coming to life in the second period, the encounter ending 2-1 to the home side but with Sevilla cruising through to the final.
