Sevilla expected to easily win this match and secure 1st place in the group standings

<div><h2>Sevilla vs APOEL</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow"><strong>Thursday, October 3rd, at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla)</strong></a></p><p>Sevilla kicked-off their Europa League campaign with a comfortable 3-0 away win in Azerbaijan against Qarabag. Following that great result, they lost 2 consecutive matches in their domestic league, 1-0 to Real Madrid, and 3-2 to Eibar, failing to maintain a 2-goals lead. They immediately bounced back winning 3-2 at home against Real Sociedad, one of the surprise packages this season in La Liga. On the other side, APOEL were huge favourites to win their UEL season opener at home against Dudelange from Luxembourg. After a dramatic match they lost 4-3 against a team who were priced at 18.0 to win away in Cyprus. APOEL domestic league results are irrelevant to us because we are talking Europa League and we are talking about high-quality teams like Sevilla who are also playing and home and have a huge European experience winning Europa League 3 times in a row between 2014 and 2016 and 5 times in the previous 15 years.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Sevilla should be very happy right now because Nolito is back following an injury. He played the entire match against Sociedad last weekend scoring a goal in the 3-2 home win. One of Sevilla’s players to look is former Marseille player Lucas Ocampos, who signed with the Spanish team in the summer transfer window and seems to love La Liga. He is one of Sevilla’s best players in every match. He also scored against Real Sociedad after netting 1 goal 2 round ago in the dramatic 3-2 defeat to Eibar. He was suspended against Qarabag being red carded in Marseille’s last group stage game last season in Europa League. Two new great additions for Sevilla are Luuk de Jong from PSV and Chicharito from West Ham, 2 great players who can decide games on their own. So, it really doesn’t matter what attacking team we will see from Sevilla.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Sevilla are Europa League material. They are one of the top La Liga side and it’s normal for them to be huge favourites in this match. They are priced at 1.2 to win the match, which is a no go, but they can easily cover the -1.5 Asian Handicap line no matter what starting lineup they will use. They have high-quality all over the pitch, they are playing at home and we just can’t see nothing else then an easy home win.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Sevilla to win with -1.5 AH at 1.7 with Bet365</strong></em></a></p></div>
