Striking Premier League vs La Liga/Bundesliga stat surfaces following Wolves’ defeat to Sevilla

A fascinating statistic surrounding the performance of Premier League clubs versus Spanish and German opposition in Europe this season has surfaced online this evening.

Wolves downed

Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves got their Europa League campaign back underway a short time ago.

After booking their spot in the tournament’s quarter-finals courtesy of a hard-fought 1-0 win over Olympiacos last week, the English outfit were tasked with getting the better of Europa League specialists Sevilla.

Julen Lopetegui’s men headed into proceedings on the back of a stellar run of form, which had seen them avoid defeat in 18 consecutive outings.

And, when all was said and done at the MSV Arena, Sevilla extended this stretch to 19.

A dominant display on the part of the Andalusian outfit eventually saw a late header from Lucas Ocampos prove the difference between the sides, as Sevilla booked a high-profile semi-final meeting with Manchester United.

Wolves (who saw Raul Jimenez miss a first-half penalty), on the other hand, saw their season, which had rumbled on for a staggering 384 days, finally brought to an end.

PL struggles

As outlined above, meanwhile, on the back of Nuno Santo’s side slipping to defeat this evening, an eye-catching statistic has since surfaced online.

The stat surrounds the performance of Premier League clubs when pitted against opposition from La Liga and the Bundesliga in European competition this season.

And the data does not bode well for English sides, with just 4 wins, along with a hefty 12 defeats, having been forthcoming:
