Sevilla Overwhelming Favourite To Qualify For Finals

If the bookmakers are correct, the finals for this year's Europa League is looking to be Sevilla vs Napoli. As we know in the world of football, however, anything can happen.

The first legs of the Europa League semi-final matches saw Napoli and Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk draw 1-1, while Sevilla put a thumping on Fiorentina when they won 3-0 in front of their home crowd.

As a result of these outcomes, Sevilla is currently an overwhelming favourite to advance to the Europa League finals, while Napoli is the other favourite.

Here are the current odds to qualify for the finals:

Sevilla, 1.02
Fiorentina, 13.00

Napoli, 1.50
Dnipro, 2.50

It's interesting to note that Napoli remains the favourite to beat Dnipro, despite the fact that Dnipro managed a 1-1 draw away from home and will be playing this week in front of a partisan home crowd.

Sevilla is all but guaranteed to advance unless they suffer some sort of a catastrophic meltdown. According to the bookmakers, Sevilla has a 98% chance of advancing to the finals.

Here are the odds for both of the second leg matches this week:

Dnipro, 4.20
Draw, 3.30
Napoli, 1.91

Fiorentina, 2.30
Draw, 3.20
Sevilla, 3.20


Here are the outright odds to win the 2014/15 Europa League as of this moment:

Sevilla, 1.73
Napoli, 2.75
Dnipro, 6.00
Fiorentina, 51.00
