Juventus v Sevilla
The Europa League is back and that means it’s time to make some Juventus vs Sevilla bet builder tips, as two of European football’s most historic clubs go head-to-head over two legs. The first leg is taking place in Italy, which is why the Turin side are favoured by most experts making Juventus vs Sevilla predictions for the first leg of this semi-final.
Juventus come into this Europa League semi-final on the back of consecutive victories, something they haven’t been able to say since before the March international break, so confidence is high in Turin.
The second leg is still to come so there will be even more Juventus vs Sevilla stats and bet builder predictions then too, and you can never rule the six-time winners out, but the focus for now is on the first leg, where the Italians are favourites to secure a home victory and where there is a nicely priced Juventus bet builder at odds of 5.93.
If you’re still to sign up to Paddy Power then this midweek is a great time to do so, in order to place a Juventus vs Sevilla bet builder. Check out the offer below to get started, and keep in mind that you’d get your stake refunded in cash for your first bet if it doesn’t land:
Juventus Enter the Europa League Semis with a Little Momentum
Massimiliano Allegri leads Juventus into this Europa League semi-final with a little momentum, although just a little bit. The Italian side have played 11 fixtures since the March international break and have only won two of them back-to-back, but those were the most recent two, which is reason to get a little more excited about a Juventus bet builder. They scored twice in both of these May wins, after failing to score multiple goals in any of the other nine fixtures since that March international break.
Juve followed a 2-1 home win over Lecce in Serie A with a 2-0 win at Atalanta on Sunday, with Dušan Vlahović scoring one goal in each of those wins, including one silencing the crowd against Atalanta. Those two goals put Vlahović onto 13 total goals for the season and mean he is now the Juventus top scorer in 2022/23, having edged ahead of the 11 goals from midfield of Adrien Rabiot.
In Europe, Vlahović hasn’t been such a Juventus bet builder darling this season, as the Serbian has netted just three goals in Europe (one in the Champions League and two in the Europa League) across 761 minutes. That works out at just one goal every 254 minutes on the continent, down from his rate of a goal every 178 minutes in Serie A. But, he’ll look to exploit a porous Sevilla defence.
As for the defensive Juventus vs Sevilla form, Allegri’s side really celebrated the clean sheet against Atalanta on Sunday as it was the team’s first in seven matches, since their last Europa League match, the 1-0 win over Sporting CP.
Juventus Team News
There are likely just two Juventus absences for this match, with Mattia De Sciglio and Kaio Jorge out with injuries. Therefore, Massimiliano Allegri has almost his entire squad to select from and he is expected to name as strong a starting line-up as possible given that Juventus’ only hope of a trophy this season is via the Europa League.
Making bet builder predictions for the exact line-up of Juventus has been almost impossible this campaign, as they’ve rotated a lot and haven’t kept the same line-up for two Europa League fixtures in a row, but Allegri will fit a strong set of 11 players into his 3-5-2 formation, with Vlahović set to be partnered up top by Ángel Di María, who has actually been linked with a summer move to Sevilla.
Sevilla Return to Action After a Full Week of Rest
Sevilla’s good form of late has made a Sevilla bet builder very popular, but there were no Sevilla bet builder predictions over the weekend because there was no fixture for the Spanish side. With Spain’s Copa del Rey final taking centre stage, LaLiga took a back seat over the weekend and that means Sevilla’s last fixture was last Thursday, when they defeated Espanyol 3-2 at home.
That was the ninth match since José Luis Mendilibar took over as coach and the veteran tactician has a record of six wins, two draws and one defeat. He has been able to get the best out of attacking players like Youssef En-Nesyri and Lucas Ocampos, who have five and three goals under Mendilibar respectively.
At the back, there has been slight improvement under Mendilibar, with Sevilla now conceding 1.00 goals per game, compared to the 1.44 goals per game they were letting in over the rest of the season. That’s still far from a great defensive record, though, and is one of the main Juventus vs Sevilla stats to keep in mind.
Sevilla Team News
Sevilla may have had a week of rest ahead of this game, but they have seen their medical report grow over the past few days. They make the trip to Turin without winger Suso, central midfielder Joan Jordan and centre-backs Tanguy Nianzou and Marcão, all because of injury, while winger Tecatito Corona and defensive midfielder Pape Gueye aren’t registered for this Europa League run.
The absence of January signing Gueye is quite a blow for Sevilla, as he has become an important player during Mendilibar’s time in Seville, and he even scored the winner in the last match. Working out who can replace Gueye at the heart of the 4-2-3-1 formation will be Mendilibar’s main pre-match concern.
Juventus v Sevilla Cheat Sheet
In terms of Juventus vs Sevilla stats, Angel Di María deserves a mention as he is the top Juventus goalscorer in the Europa League with four goals so far, at a rate of one every 104 minutes. But, it’s Dušan Vlahović who is finding his form again and who’ll be the main threat to a sometimes shaky Sevilla back line.

Juventus v Sevilla
To start this Juventus bet builder, a home win is good value at 1.75. As much as Sevilla are the kings of this competition and just knocked out favourites Manchester United, they’ve ridden their home form while their away form has been unimpressive.
Sevilla still haven’t won any of their six away games in European competition this season, losing three and drawing three of them. The most recent may have been a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, but it should be kept in mind that the xG that night was 1.80 to 0.64 in favour of United. Juventus, meanwhile, have won their past two at home in the Europa League to get to this stage and should feel confident of achieving a first-leg win against a Sevilla side that doesn’t travel well.
As was already mentioned when previewing some of the best Juventus vs Sevilla bet builder tips, Dušan Vlahović arrives in this game having scored in his past two fixtures and he has done so by hitting two shots on target in each of those games. The Serbian is one of the best strikers in this competition and will look to exploit the holes that still exist in the Sevilla back line, even if it has improved somewhat under Mendilibar. Sevilla have been conceding 4.0 shots on target per game during this Europa League campaign.
Sevilla will travel to Turin looking to keep this tie alive enough to bring back to their Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, and they’ll aim to do so by any means necessary. It was the same at Old Trafford in the quarters, where they fouled wherever necessary and where they received their first booking for time-wasting in the 11th minute of that first leg, for Gonzalo Montiel. Overall, Sevilla are receiving many more cards than Juventus this Europa League season, 2.7 vs 1.8 per game, and in their respective league campaigns too, where Sevilla have 3.4 cards per game and Juventus 2.1.
