Having done something that few teams have managed at the Camp Nou, namely score twice in the last 10 minutes to level things up at 2-2, they conceded in the 94th minute to end up losing a match from which their endeavors deserved more.
The Andalusians then will be desperate to put that domestic disappointment behind them and get off to winning start in the Europa League with Paddy Power pricing them at 10/11 (1.91) to claim a win against their Portuguese opponents.
Indeed Sevilla and Estoril are virtual neighbors in the south of the Iberian peninsular so a decent turn out of away fans can be expected while the home side who are currently fourth in the Portuguese league are offered at 3/1 (4.00).
It is hard however to oppose a Sevilla side who look like they are getting into their stride and backing them to net over 1.5 goals at 4/5 (1.80) looks to be a wise investment.
Going forward Unai Emery's side are a dangerous prospect with Kevin Gameiro's intelligent movement spearheading the attack and Ivan Rakitic providing able support through his vision not to mention goal scoring ability.
Domestically Estoril have not kept a clean sheet since mid April and the La Liga side should have more than enough to net twice this evening on the Portuguese coast.
