The Final of the UEFA Europa League takes place in the National Stadium in Warsaw, the home of the Polish Internation football team and the venue for the showdown between Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and Sevilla in what should be a classic tactical battle. Dnipeo are the massive underdogs in their first European final but the team has beaten good teams to get this far and have an excellent defence that will be very tough to break down. Dnipro got the better of Napoli in the semi final and have proven during this campaign that they will stick to their tactical game plan no matter who the opponents are. With Kalinic, Seleznyov and Konoplyanko they have talented finishers who can find the net when the chances are created. Dnipro also had two tough games against Shakhtar Donetsk in the last two weeks as preperation for this game so they are battle hardened and will have played a similar game plan as they will have prepared for Sevilla.
With the Spanish league finishing on Saturday Sevilla know that they must win this competition to get Champions League football next season. Sevilla have been terrific in this competition all season and will fancy their chances of making it back to back wins in the competion for the second time having won the competition in 2006 and 2007 previously. Sevilla if they win on Wednesday will also become the most successful club in the history of the competition with four wins. Led by the goals of Bacca who has netted over twenty this season in all competitions and with experienced players like M'Bia and Reyes this is a side with a good mix throughout the squad. Denis Suarez and Deulofeu are young Spanish stars with bright futures that could feature prominently in this final but in all likelyhood it will be Bacca or Gameiro who decides whether Sevilla take another Europa League winners trophy back to Spain.
This one should be a really interesting tactical battle. Dnipro will no doubt set up defensively and try to counter attack, this type of game lends itself to the concession of lots of corners and with Sevilla havign strong wing men and good strikers through the center I am going to take the overs on Sevilla's corner total which is currently set at a low mark of 6. Take the overs on Sevilla corners and sit back and watch what should be a thoroughly enjoyable tactical battle.
