THE TEAM NEWS

SEVILLA

  • Three-time winners Sevilla are unbeaten in six games in all competitions after drawing 2-2 at Atletico Madrid in La Liga on Saturday.
  • Fernando is the only absentee for coach Lopetegui but fellow midfielder Oliver Torres is available again after suspension.
  • De Jong, who started both legs in the last round, is expected to get the nod ahead of En-Nesyri again after scoring against Atletico.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Vaclik; Jesus Navas, Kounde, Diego Carlos, Reguilon; Joan Jordan, Gudelj, Oliver Torres; Ocampos, De Jong, Suso

Unavailable: Fernando (Injured)

Doubtful:

ROMA

  • Roma have not played since their victory at Cagliari at the start of the month as coronavirus continues to disrupt football in Italy.
  • Coach Paulo Fonseca has concerns in midfield as Veretout is suspended and Pastore, Zaniolo and Pellegrini are all injured.
  • The trip is also likely to come too soon for Diawara, who played for the reserves at the weekend, so January signing Villar is set to start.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Pau Lopez; Bruno Peres, Fazio, Smalling, Kolarov; Villar, Cristante; Under, Mkhitaryan, Kluivert; Dzeko

Unavailable: Mirante (Ineligible), Zappacosta (Injured), Zaniolo (Injured), Pastore (Injured), Veretout (Suspended)

Doubtful: Diawara (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

This should be a close-fought contest between two sides with plenty of European experience. Roma have only lost once in the Europa League this season but Sevilla have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last eight games at home, so expect neither side to give much away in the first leg.
