Sevilla look assured of reaching the Europa League final with only a comeback unprecedented in the history of the competition good enough to foil their dreams.
As such there’s little joy to be found in backing the microscopic 2/50 favourites to make good on their 3-0 first-leg advantage to advance at Fiorentina’s expense.
The match betting too looks an unpredictable beast, with the Spaniards in a stick-or-twist dilemma and the hosts compelled to attack with more abandon than they might ideally display.
Fiorentina are 11/10, with the draw 11/4 and a win for Los Rojiblancos priced at 12/5, yet a punters are advised to shun all three.
Far more predictable than destination of the laurels on the night is the fact that goals will be in attendance, with both teams partaking.
Sevilla’s away form in domestic and European action since returning from their winter break has gone through troughs and peaks.
However, despite following up five successive road defeats with as many victories, then three draws in their last four, winning both-teams-to-score wagers have been the common thread, copping in all bar one of those 14 fixtures.
Understandably it’s 1/2 that there won’t be a clean sheet in the house at Stadio Artemio Franchi, while over 2.5 goals in the clash is only a shade longer at 3/5.
They may have been shut out in two of their last five home games, but La Viola have found the net at least once in 12 of their 14 games in Florence since returning from the Christmas holidays.
In the second leg of a European semi-final in front of their own diehards, Vincenzo Montella’s men should be ashamed of themselves if either wager runs aground on their account.
