Villas-Boas: Zenit got the worst draw against Sevilla

The draw of UEFA league has just been relinquished and there are some incredibly facts that we can spot. Andre-Villas Boaz, the FC Zenit coach, mentioned that th team presumably had the worst draw in the league in as much as the team had been paired with Sevilla. That draw could be the hardest match the team could battle. What makes the draw rather discouraging is, of course, the fact that Sevilla is the current champion of the league, clearly indicating that they are fraught with experienced players. At the moment, there are three former champions left in the competition, two of which will meet in the UEFA Europa League quarter final fixtures after the draw pairing Zenit FC and Sevilla was announced.

Let’s have a look at some facts and figure prior to the matches in the UEFA Europa League quarter finals: the first things is that Sevilla has won the competition three times in 2006, 2007, and 2014. FC Zenit are the former winner of the league who are left in the competition. The other thing is Unai Emery led Sevilla to victory in Turin in May 204 yet opposite number AVB also has scooped a win under his regime with FC Porto in 2011. Third, the sides have met three times in 2005/2006 in which Zenit gained victory by 2-1 in Russia in the group phase even though it was a totally different matter when both sides in the last eight, resulted in a 4-1 home triumph for Sevilla by setting up a 5-2 aggregate victory.

Also, you may notice that the last time either team got to quarter final they won the league. Sevilla outperformed FC Porto by 4-2 last term while Zenit defeated Bayer 04 Leverkusen by the same score in 2008. The record of Sevilla this season is that they have made seven wins, double draws, one defeat. On the otherhand FC Zenit has gained three victories, no draw, and one defeat. Andre Villas-Boaz said that the defending champion was presumably the hardest draw that the team could get. Sevilla certainly got the experience, quality, and success in the league. With the record that Sevilla has achieved, there is no doubt that the game will be tough. Nevertheless, the team will play the second leg at home. AVB indeed needed that the fans supported the team and he was sure that they would do the utmost to support the team to get through the match.
