Just Borussia Dortmund of the Norwegian giant surpasses the Nervionenses in favoritism to lift the Europa League at the Sanchez-Pizjuan. Barcelona is the third favorite.


Dortmund and Erling as a favorite

At least for bettors, only Erling Haaland and his Borussia Dortmund stand between Sevilla and the Seventh Europa League. The German club appears as a favorite in most houses (6.5 per euro wagered, on average) but those from follow these odds very closely, with 7.5 to one. Behind, although they could have more posters, are Barcelona as the third favorite (8.5 to 1), Atalanta (10 to 1), West Ham (11 to 1), Leipzig (15 to 1) and Naples (17 to 1).


Sevilla as the second favorite club

Sevilla’s six players weigh a lot in the competition, the last of them just a year and a half ago, in August 2020. And perhaps Dortmund are somewhat more favorites simply because last season, guided by Haaland himself, they eliminated the Nervionenses in the round of 16 of the Champions League with no less than four goals from the Norwegian giant between the first leg and the second leg. “We know that this year is important because the final will be played here. This has been encouraged over the years, winning many trophies. That’s why every time we play in this competition, the other teams look at us, Sevilla, in a different way. And Sevilla knows it. Sevilla is a feared club in this competition, and we hope that this year will be no different”, adds the Brazilian midfielder.

In the sports section, Julen Lopetegui and his men exercised yesterday behind closed doors. Rakitic, Tecatito Corona and Martial are doubtful for the match after not having appeared for Monday’s session. Jordan is safe due to suspension. Dinamo Zagreb arrives today in Seville accompanied by 1,700 fans.
