Feb 25: Europa League Betting Preview


IT’S the second leg of the dreaded Europa League last-32 ties and there are 15 matches to consider.

Here are my thoughts on the English teams involved – Liverpool, Spurs and Man United – and I’ve add some views on some of the other games.

Liverpool must be cursing a calendar that sees them in Europe tonight and playing in a cup final three days later.

If Jurgen Klopp’s men were cemented in the Premier League top four they’d be putting out reserves against Augsburg tonight and focusing on Sunday’s Wembley date with Man City.

But they’re not and winning the Europa League is their only chance of Champions League football next season.

So barring injuries the Anfield men will be at full strength as they try to finish off the Germans after a 0-0 first-leg draw.

Liverpool are a biggest 4-9 with William Hill and Paddy Power but I prefer is under 2.5 goals at evens with Paddy Power.

A 1-0 win (6-1, McBookie) would suit Klopp and Augsburg’s chances of scoring will be dented if star striker Raul Bobadilla is ruled out.

Spurs are in the top four but boss Mauricio Pochettini is likely go strong when Fiorentina visit. A 1-1 draw in Italy sets Spurs up to qualify but they’ll be without hitman Harry Kane.

Spurs will go through with a 0-0 draw but I can see them edging this. They are 17-20 with bet365 and consider Nacer Chadli at 28-17 with 888sport to score.

Man United are the only English side trailing after first-leg ties but a 1-0 win against Midtjylland will ease them through on away goals.

Injuries are the problem for Louis van Gaal with Will Keane, Jesse Lingard, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Anthony Martial picking up injuries in Monday’s FA Cup win at Shrewsbury.

They join the 13 crocked first-teamers who missed the 3-0 victory and United look too short at 1-4 with Hills to win tonight and 2-5 at Ladbrokes to qualify.

The Danish champions are 5-2 at McBookie to qualify and 14-1 at bet365 to win tonight. It’s a no-bet match until I see the United starting XI.

Meanwhile, the early 4pm kick-off sees Fenerbahce taking a 2-0 lead to Lokomotiv Moscow and against a side that looked rusty last week there is every chance of the Turks increasing their advantage.

Athletic Bilbao should add to the 1-0 lead they brought home from Marseille and likewise Bayer at home to Sporting in a game where both could score.

Lazio managed a decent 1-1 at home to Galatasaray and should finish off the job at home while the same goes for Schalke who managed a 0-0 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Holders Sevilla have booked their slot after a 3-0 home win v Molde and the same goes for Valencia who beat Rapid Vienna 6-0. Gary Neville will field a weakened team in Austria and if Rapid want to restore some pride they’ll probably edge this one.
