Betting Tip: Fiorentina @ 13/10 with williamhill

Sevilla’s 3-0 victory last week means the Spanish side have one foot in the Europa League final and it’s hard to see how their opponents are going to turn things round in Florence.

Fiorentina know that conceding one goal will leave them needing to score five times against one of the better sides in Spain, while the Italian side have actually lost six of their past ten games so don’t come into this match with lots of form.

They were slightly unfortunate to be on the receiving end of a 3-0 reverse last week, although Sevilla are pretty deadly in front of their own supporters. An Aleix Vidal brace set them on their way before Kevin Gameiro delivered a hammer blow when scoring the third goal.

Indeed, Sevilla’s only defeat in the past eighteen matches home and away was a 3-2 reverse against Real Madrid, although Unai Emery will simply be focused on making sure his team score that away goal and Fiorentina might enjoy a consolation victory.

La Viola have won their past two Serie A matches, scoring three times en route to a 3-2 triumph over Empoli, with Josip Ilicic continuing his fine form in front of goal by scoring a brace. That means seven goals in ten games for the Slovenian.
