Akhisar Belediyespor vs Sevilla FC: It’s now about damage control for Akhisar

03:58, 07 Nov 2018

Turkish side Akhisar Belediyespor will be at home for the fourth round of Europa League Group J matches. They host Spanish opponents Sevilla at their 12,000 capacity stadium looking to atone a 6-0 thrashing suffered in the first leg in Spain.

The home side are underdogs in all aspects. Their league is much weaker than Sevilla’s La Liga, and even in that league they sit 16th. They occupy bottom position in their group having lost the three opening matches and shipping eight goals in the process.

Sevilla should have it easy in this one. They will however not be taking it easy as they still lack a clear advantage despite leading the group- they have six points and only lead Krasnodar and Standard Liege by goal difference. They are unbeaten in the last four (W2 D2) and will once again look to get goals from a variety of scorers to take control of the group. Pablo Sarabia will lead their attack.
