Bet on Sevilla vs Dortmund – Hosts unbeaten at home against Germans

| 15.12.2010

Qualification for the knockout stages of the Europa League is on the line in the crunch Group J clash between Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund.

The current Bundesliga leaders know that they have to win in Sevilla to remain in the competition and they are 6/4 to secure the three points they require.

However, Sevilla have won seven of their 11 previous meetings with German opposition, while they have never lost any of their six at home.

Sevilla know that only a draw is needed to join Paris Saint Germain from Group J in the last 32 of the Europa League, but it could be a dangerous strategy if they play for this outcome.

Meanwhile, a victory could also see them progress as group winners which could have its benefits when the draw is made for the last 32 of the tournament.

Betting odds of 17/10 are offered on Sevilla beating Dortmund, which was the case earlier in the group stages in Germany when Gregorio Manzano’s team won 1-0.

A repeat of that scoreline in Sevilla’s favour is priced at 6/1, while a 2-0 home win is valued at 8/1.

There is nothing to play for in the other Group J encounter between Paris St Germain and Karpaty Lviv, apart from deciding whether the French outfit will finish on top of the group.

A draw is a result that will suit both teams as it will be enough to secure top spot for PSG, while it will also ensure that the Ukrainian hosts will avoid finishing the group stages without collecting a point.

PSG are yet to lose in the group and are 11/10 to beat Karpaty, which would extend their record to six wins in eight games against Ukrainian opposition.

The draw is available at betting odds of 12/5, which is the same price offered for a home win.

A £10 bet on Karpaty and PSG playing out a 2-2 draw could see a payout of £140. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
