ISevilla are the current Champions in the Europa League and they look to make it three titles in a row in the competition. Unai Emery has led Sevilla to both titles and the Spanish side seem to have a special relationship with the competition. Llorente, Gameiro, Konoplyanko and Reyes will lead the way for Sevilla sho should have too much qualilty for a Molde team who have caused some shocks in this year's competition. Sevilla though are in good form have turned things around domestically and are up to fifth in La Liga but with an eight point deficit they may look at this competition as the only way into the Champions League for next season.
Molde have had a good season in the Europa League but they come into this game with their own domestic season over and having lost their title to Rosenberg. Managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the ex Manchester United striker will be hoping the addition of Eidur Gudjohnsen can provide some experience to help the youth in the side. Elyounoussi is the key man up front and I think that he will provide an outlet for Molde but this game could be played on the backfoot for the norwegians for most of the 90 minutes.
Tough to see anything but a Sevilla win here, at 1/5 there is no value in taking the reigning champions to get the win but I am going to take Sevilla to win and both teams to score at evens. I think Molde have enough to cause some problems for Sevilla defensively and with Sevilla occasionally struggling to defend this looks the prudent bet here.
