Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 17 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Sevilla.
The first leg of the UEFA Champions League in the round of 16 between Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund could not have come at a better time for the Spaniards.
The Rojiblancos fly high in one of the most important games of the season. They won nine on the spin across competitions, a series that has included some really impressive results.
One of them came seven days ago when Julen Lopetegui’s troops faced Barcelona 2-0 in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-finals at home. Sevilla has conceded just one goal in their last nine games in all competitions.
Will they have what it takes to keep Erling Haaland & Company in this match?
The story is completely opposite to BVB. For some time now, visitors have been fighting hard for consistency. They made a change in leadership at the beginning of the season but Edin Terzic doesn’t seem to have the knowledge and experience right now to get big results.
Dortmund loses goals effortlessly these days. They only occupy 6th place in the Bundesliga ranking and at the top, they have an enormous 15-point deficit behind Bayern Munich.
Sevilla against Borussia Dortmund head to head
A decade has passed since these two teams last played against each other.
You fought in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League (2010/11 season).
Seville scored a 0-1 win on the road, while the second leg in Spain ended in a 2-2 draw.
Prediction of Sevilla against Borussia Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund has achieved terrible results. They lost three, drew two and won only one of the last six games in the league.
The team led by Edin Terzic allowed two or more goals in four of the last five league games. In the meantime, they scored two goals in their home win against Paderborn in the DFB Cup (3-2). They will travel to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan after a 2-2 draw with Hoffenheim.
Seville is a strong favorite and we can barely look past the home win selection with odds of 2.30.
The value is fantastic as the hosts score two or more goals in the game at odds of 2.10 when we know their rivals have been unable to keep things quiet lately.
