Sevilla Team News
In May of this year, in the final played in Budapest, Sevilla defeated Roma after a better penalty shootout and won its seventh UEFA Europa League trophy, making it the absolute record holder of this competition. Sevilla thus qualified directly for the group stage of this year’s Champions League, where their rivals will be Lens, PSV, and Arsenal. Although the group is very even, the team from Andalusia is expected to advance to the 1/8 finals.
The new season of La Liga did not start in the best way for this team because Sevilla lost the first three matches in the domestic championship. They were defeated at home against Valencia 1:2, Alaves 4:3, and Girona 1:2. The home team got their first win of the new season last weekend, beating Las Palmas 1:0 with a lot of difficulty because the guests had several good chances at the end of the match.
In the last days of the transfer window, Sevilla brought a critical reinforcement, considering that the legend of Real Madrid and the Spanish national team, Sergio Ramos, returned to the club from which he originated, having already shown in the duel with Las Palmas that he will mean a lot to his team.
Lens Team News
In the previous season, Lens recorded an incredible feat, finishing the championship in second place in the table and thus securing the Champions League group stage. Considering the rivals they drew in Nyon, there is no doubt that it would be a great success for the team from France to continue competing in Europe in the spring, even in the Europa League.
Considering the games they played last season, many European giants targeted Lens players, so it is not surprising that Lois Openda, who moved to RB Leipzig, and Seko Fofana, who went to Al Nassr, left the club.
How vital these two players were for the visitors’ game is best shown by the fact that after five played rounds, Lens is in last place in the French Ligue 1 table, with only one draw (against Rennes 1:1) and as many as four defeats (Brest, PSG, Monaco, and Metz). Although Lens was a much better rival at the weekend against Metz, they failed to score, while the visitors won with the goal from the only chance on the match.
🏁 Dans une soirée où ils ont manqué de réussite et de justesse dans leur quête d'un retour au score, les Lensois doivent s'incliner à Bollaert. Prochaine échéance mercredi, dans une autre compétition, pour relever la tête.@RCLens 0⃣-1⃣ @FCMetz #RCLFCM pic.twitter.com/SprrrXweFj— Racing Club de Lens (@RCLens) September 16, 2023

Sevilla vs Lens Prediction
Both teams have had a bad start to their national championships, and there is no doubt that a victory in this duel would mean a lot for confidence. Sevilla won their first points in La Liga over the weekend, and they enter this match as favorites. If we add to that the vast experience of playing such European games, it is clear why we expect the triumph of the Spanish team against Lens.
