Sevilla Roster, Injuries, and Betting News
Sevilla have had one of the most unpredictable seasons of any team in Europe. The perennial top-four finishers in La Liga got off to a rocky start to the year, one that forced out two managers, Julen Lopetegui and Jorge Sampaoli. In March, the club turned to 62-year-old Jose Luis Mendilibar, who was tasked with preventing the team from being relegated.
Under Mendilibar, Sevilla have enjoyed one of the best late-season surges in European soccer, quickly climbing to the middle of the table and advancing to the Europa League final with wins over PSV Eindhoven, Fenerbahce, Manchester United, and Juventus.
Between their red-hot form — they’ve lost just twice since Mendilibar took over for his team’s win over Cadiz on April 1 — and their incredible Europa League track record, Sevilla are credible contenders to raise the trophy for the seventh time. They also won the Europa League six times between ’06 and ’20 (’06, ’07, ’14, ’15, ’16, ’20).
With a record of 8-5-2 (11 La Liga and four Europa League matches) under Mendilibar, Sevilla are as hot as anyone other than City, and they have a keeper in Bono who has proven to be a difference-maker in big matches, including a couple of Morocco’s upset wins in the 2022 World Cup.
The biggest absence for Sevilla is Argentine left back Marcos Acuna. His experience, including his contributions to the World Cup winners in Qatar in December, will be missed as he serves a suspension after he drew two yellow cards in the semifinal second-leg match against Juve. Sevilla will also be without 20-year-old center back Tanguy Nianzou.
AS Roma Roster, Injuries, and Betting News
Sevilla’s Mendilibar has been impressive, but AS Roma have a world-class manager of their own in Jose Mourinho. The well-regarded Portuguese has led two teams (Inter Milan and Porto) to Champions League titles, and he’s also won the Europa League with both Porto and Manchester United. Additionally, he led Roma to the Europa Conference League title last season.
Despite their struggles in Serie A (they’re 27 points behind first-place Napoli with a record of 17-9-11), Roma are dangerous thanks to their solid back line — always a staple of Mourinho-coached teams — and the attacking duo of Tammy Abraham (11 total goals and assists in Serie A) and Paulo Dybala (17 total goals, assists).
Roma reached the final thanks to outstanding defensive efforts in Europa League play against Real Sociedad in the Round of 16, Feyenoord in the quarterfinals, and Bayer Leverkusen in the semis. Over two legs against each of those opponents, Roma conceded just two goals (both against Feyenoord). The Serie A side shut out both Real Sociedad and Leverkusen over 180 minutes.
Roma are not expected to be missing any of their key players for Wednesday’s match.

Sevilla vs. AS Roma Prediction: Sevilla 2, AS Roma 1
Something has to give in this one, as Sevilla’s history of success in Europa League finals clashes with Mourinho’s proven expertise in championship matches.
Expect a low-scoring affair, but if you’re looking to back one of these sides (as opposed to a safer bet like one on the total or a prop like both teams to score), lean toward Sevilla based on their form and the fact that they knocked off both Manchester United and Juventus to reach the title game.
Here are a few bets available at DraftKings that are worth checking out:
- Sevilla to Raise the Trophy (-110)
- Both Teams To Score — Yes (+110)
