The Viola of Fiorentina will look to turn over a 3-0 deficit as they host Sevilla in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League semi final. Fiorentina's season may very hinge on this result as they are currently fifth in Serie A with minimal chance of moving up any higher. Fiorentina know that theymust put in an extraordinary perfromance to turn around this tie and in all likelihood they must score early here to have any chance. Fiorentina will rely on Gomez and Salah to provide the attacking intent and goals as they look to break down a Sevilla team that have lost just once in their last seventeen games.
Sevilla have a big lead here and it is difficult to see Fiorentina turning around a 3-0 tie but anything is possible in the Europa League and I am certain that Sevilla will go to Italy and look to score to close out the game and the tie. With a strong side led by the goals of Bacca and Gameiro this is a side that have shown exactly why they won this competition last season. Sevilla are one of the best cup sides in Europe and with the winner of this competition getting a place in the Champions league next season, Sevilla may have found their only way into Europe's Premier competition as the currently lie three points behind Valencia with just two games to go.
With such a big lead for Sevilla here this one is tough to call, in most Sevilla games I would go with the over but at 4/7 there doesnt appear to be much value in that especially considering that over fifty percent of Fiorentina games go under. With that said Fiorentina do have to go for it here and although I am not crazy about this play I am going to take Fiorentina to get a win here, probably wont be enough to get through but an early goal might make this one really interesting.
