La Liga trio aiming to progress in the Europa League

    Spain’s three remaining representatives in the Europa League
    have all been handed tricky looking assignments in the last 32 of the

    Getafe, Sevilla and Espanyol all enjoyed a relatively smooth
    passage through the opening phase, but things inevitably get much tougher as
    the tournament progresses.

    Sevilla are amongst the favourites in the outright market to
    win the Europa League and you can check
    it out here
    if you fancy wagering on the outcome.

    Read on as we take a closer a look at each of the La Liga
    teams’ upcoming ties and predict who we think will make it through to the next

    Getafe v Ajax

    NFL Betting

    Getafe drew the most difficult task out of the three Spanish
    teams as they were paired with Dutch giants Ajax.

    The Azulones claimed second spot in Group C behind Basel,
    losing twice against the Swiss side but winning all their other matches.

    They are in with a chance of claiming a top four place in La
    Liga this season, but could have their work cut out against the Eredivisie

    Ajax have dropped into the competition from the
    Champions League
    after narrowly missing out on qualification to the last

    The collected 10 points in a group containing Valencia,
    Chelsea and Lille, and may prove too classy for Getafe over two legs.

    Wolverhampton Wanderers v Espanyol

    Espanyol finished top of Group H ahead of Ludogorets,
    although it was undoubtedly one of the weakest sections in the opening stage.

    Their form in La Liga this season has been extremely poor
    and they find themselves firmly embroiled in a
    battle against relegation

    However, their confidence will have been boosted by a recent
    2-2 draw with Barcelona and they will hope to carry that forward into the
    Europa League.

    Wolves secured second place behind Braga In Group K to
    qualify for the round of 32 and are one of the more fancied teams left in the

    They were unbeaten on the road during the opening phase, but
    if Espanyol can keep things tight in the first leg, they would be in with a
    chance of completing the job back on home soil.

    CFR Cluj v Sevilla

    Sevilla have won the Europa League on five previous
    occasions and it would be no surprise if they made it six this season.

    They won five out of six matches in Group A to progress to
    the last 32, winning all three home games without conceding a goal.

    Sevilla remain in good form in La Liga and are well on
    course to challenge for a place in next season’s Champions League.

    Cluj also won all their home matches on their way to
    claiming second place in Group E behind Celtic and could prove to be
    troublesome opponents.

    However, Sevilla are fully expected to progress through this
    tie and should go on to the latter stages of the competition.

    Prediction: Sevilla look a banker bet to make it
    through to the last 16, while Espanyol could join them if they can stay in
    touch with Wolves in the first leg. Getafe can be expected to put up a good
    fight against Ajax, but the Dutch side should progress.
