Taking on Wolverhampton in the quarter-final of the Europa League, Sevilla found themselves up against their first real test in the competition this season. It was a clash which would determine if they were rightfully being hailed as potential champions-elect of the 2019-20 edition of the marquee league.
While the club was given a real score by Wolverhampton in the opening exchanges with Raul Jimenez stepping up to take an early penalty, the striker’s miss ended up handing a real reprieve to the Spanish side. And there was no looking back from there with the club pulling its socks up henceforth to ask Wolverhampton to take a walk in the tie.
Sevilla’s staunch defence was at the fore of their 1-0 win on the day with the side’s backline yet again stepping up for the club. Taking centrestage in their win, the club’s backline sees the side make an advent into today’s first semi-final as clear favourites to not only protect their unbeaten run since March but also make it into the showpiece summit clash.
SEV Vs MUN Dream11 Probable Winner
Manchester United might have managed to string together a winning spree in the competition but their 1-0 win against Copenhagen the last time around showed that the team’s current run means for little. Akin to the Premier League, the side has failed to up the ante when up infront of oppositions of note with the team needed an extra time penalty to emerge as winners against the Greek club.
Things will not be so fortuitous for them against Sevilla though today. The Spanish club has known to give the best clubs in the footballing fraternity cold feet and will met out the same treatment to Manchester United to advance from this one off tie.

Yassine Bounou has been handed over a chance in the Europa League and the goal-keeper has more than reposed the faith earmarked in him. He emerged as the side’s match winner after keeping our Raul’s penalty the last time around to ensure Sevilla were able to control proceedings and come out of the fixture with a win.
Wolverhampton were set to become the first club this season to finally test and rattle Sevilla’s renowned defence. However, the side was quick to dismiss all notions of them struggling to contain Wolverhampton with the side hardly according the Premier League side a glimpse into their goal.
Shunning out wave after wave of attack to make things cumbersome for the English club, Sevilla’s backline showed why its held in such high esteem. They have had little qualms in quashing attacks, a discourse which made it befitting to opt for a triad from the side today.
