Although they did not overly fame in their preliminary rounds, two big names clash in the last 32 teams in the UEFA Europa League. Sevilla FC are in this match with five overall victories as Europa League record winners, while Lazio Roma has played since the launch of the competition for the 2009/10 season, the so far most games of all European teams in the second most important tournament for European club teams. It is already the 63rd match for the Biancocelesti. Only Villarreal (68) and Salzburg (66) have more. But: The Andalusians have caught up strongly, they had yet come in the 2018/19 season on the qualification and deny in the Olympic Stadium in Roma now the 13th Europa League competitive game of the season. Of the twelve matches so far, the Nervionenses have won ten games (two defeats).
Football Betting Tips Lazio Roma vs. Sevilla

Lazio Roma – Statistics & Current Form
Only on the very last day of the preseason Lazio Roma was displaced by Inter Milan in fifth place. Again, no Champions League for the Eagles and again only the Europa League, in which, however, in 2012/13 and 2017/18 already went twice to the quarter-finals. However, it does not want to run around in the current season at the Biancocelesti partout. In the Serie A, the Romans are currently only seventh and would have missed both premier class and Europa League. On the one hand, Coppa Italia could be a back door, with some kind of early final against AC Milan (Bergamo and Fiorentina face each other in the other semi-finals). And on the other hand, the Europa League, where the overall winner beckons the Champions League starting place beckons.
The team of Simone Inzaghi should not really hope for that because in the preliminary round there were already three defeats in the Europa League, while the overall balance does not look too rosy. Although Lazio Roma won eleven of the last 15 national games in Roma (two draws and defeats), but reads the home record in the Europa League knockout phase in five wins, two draws and three defeats already much worse. Especially since two of the three defeats are attributable to the sixteenth finals. Had the Eagles there home right in the first leg, there has always been a home defeat. Does that play a role again for Lazio Roma vs Sevilla? In any case, it is not only Goalgetter Ciro Immobile, who once could not prevail in Seville, who misses thigh injury, but also that Sergey Milinkovic-Savic (adductor injury) and center-back Wallace (thigh) will miss both matches.
