The Europa Cup finale has Sevilla as the big betting favorite facing a Dnipro squad that shocked Napoli in the semis. The winner of this match will automatically get a Champions League, which is HUGE for both squads that did not qualify for the prestigious competition in league play this season.
Sevilla can become the first 4-time winner of the competition if they can win this match. They are a betting favorite, as they play in a much tougher league and in their semifinals they routed Fiorentina 5-0 in aggregate.
In their last 9 Europa League matches Sevilla has 8 wins and 1 draw. Since the beginning of March the club only has one loss and in that span they played to draws against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
Dnipro beat Napoli 2-1 on aggregate in the semifinals and their defense will be key in this match facing a Sevilla side that has 7 goals in their last 3 matches and is led by Carlos Bacca. He has scored 26 goals in all competitions on the season and has scored 4 times in Europa League play.
Dnipro GK Denys Boyko was stellar in the semifinals facing a Napoli side that has a solid attack and he will be tested early and often in this final. Sevilla will be on the attack from the get-go while Dnipro will likely drop back and play a defensive match and look for the counter-attack to score.
Yevhen Konoplyanka is the only real playmaker that Dnipro has and if Sevilla can bottle him up in the midfield and not let him create they should be in good shape.
The one thing that Dnipro has going for them is that Sevilla is best when they are on the counter-attack, but they will not get many of those chances facing a defensive minded Dnipro squad.

Prediction: Last season Sevilla won the Europa League final on penalties in a 0-0 draw facing Benfica. While that is not out of the realm of possibility again with the stout defense Dnipro has I think the Spanish outfit will score in regular time and win the title again in a low-scoring match.
