SEVILLA v SHAKHTAR DONETSK BETTING PREVIEWA 2-2 draw in Lviv last Thursday means that Sevilla are huge favorite to qualify for the final as the Andalusians have won 18 of their last 20 home matches in all competitions (L1-D1). Except for their home defeat for Bilbao, they have won 12 straight games at home in the Europa league. This competition represents Sevilla's only chance of playing in next season's Champions League after a run of just one win in seven La Liga games ended their league hopes.A much-changed Sevilla team fell to a 1-0 defeat against Espanyol at Cornella-El Prat on 1 May to leave the Andalusians in seventh place on the La Liga table.
Unai Emery fielded a reserve team for the 1-0 defeat to Espanyol at the weekend and he is likely to recall all his regular starters. Michael Krohn-Dehli will not be part of the squad after he dislocated his knee in the first-leg while Marco Andreolli and Benoit Tremoulinas are struggling with fitness and are doubts for this game. Defender Timothee Kolodziejczak also is a doubt after suffering a blow to the head in the Espanyol match.
Shakhtar Donetsk go into Thursday's match on a nine-match unbeaten streak that has seen them score 27 goals. They ended a run of three consecutive draws by beating 3-0 title rivals Dynamo Kiev. The Ukraininas have won away in each of the three previous knockout rounds, 2-1 at Braga, 1-0 at Anderlecht and 3-0 at Schalke and theya are unbeaten in seven matches away from home in the Europa League this season.
Eduardo da Silva will be particularly hopeful to start up front having scored twice at the weekend, while Wellington Nem will also be pushing for a starting berth having got his side's second goal on Sunday.
Fred is suspended for the visiting side, while Marcio Azevedo (knee) is a long-term absentee. Darijo Srna, Oleksandr Gladkyy and Dentinho are all doubtful but only the Croatian full back have real chances to start.
