Sevilla suffered only 3 defeats in the last 13 games across all tournaments, and even when they lost, the Red-Whites delivered solid performance. Salzburg have problems on the defensive, which the visitors should take advantage of. However, we don't expect a crushing defeat for the Bulls.
Second bet - Sevilla to win by 1 goal
