Tuesday UEFA Europa semifinals: Miller picks Shakhtar Donetsk vs Basel and Wolverhampton vs Sevilla
Once again, there are two very intriguing UEFA Europa League quarterfinal contests Tuesday.
Monday, Manchester United battled some adversity (three posts hit, penalty taken away) to get past Copenhagen 1-0 in added extra time, while Inter beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1.
The two teams that won Monday are the two favorites right now (United +160, Inter +175) to lift the cup in Köln next Friday, but there are a few teams playing today that will also think they can win this tournament.
Shakhtar Donetsk should beat Basel, but the other game, Wolverhampton vs. Sevilla, is tough to call. Sevilla has won this tournament five times since 2005, but this Wolves team is very good.
I don’t know which team will move on, but I could see this as a very low scoring game, with extra time on the docket.
