May 5: Europa League Betting Preview


LIVERPOOL need a repeat of their Borussia Dortmund demolition job tonight to progress to the Europe League final.

Jurgen Klopp’s side trail Villarreal 1-0 after conceding a late goal last week but matched the La Liga outfit in most departments and played pretty well.

The German boss rested key players in the 3-1 defeat at Swansea on Sunday so they’ll be ready for a massive 90 minutes. They needed four to see off Dortmund on that Anfield glory night and might need three tonight as Villarreal will press for a vital away goal on the counter.

Opta stats reveal that fifty-nine per cent of teams who lost the first leg of a Europa League knockout tie away have gone on to qualify and in three of their last five European semis Liverpool have recovered after losing the first leg on the road.

Daniel Sturridge didn’t feature in the first leg but if he starts tonight – and that’s not a certainty – he could be the man to fire the Reds to Basel.

Liverpool are 4-5 with Coral to win on the night and 6-4 with Paddy Power to qualify. Villarreal are 17-4 at McBookie for an Anfield win and favourites at 8-13 with bet365 to progress.

Sturridge is 6-4 with McBookie to net but if he isn’t picked go with big-game player Philippe Coutinho to score at 5-2 with 888sport.

Villarreal are in good shape after sealing a Champions League place with Sunday’s win at Valencia. Like Atletico Madrid they’re defensively solid but will see the value of an away goal and are 8-11 at Coral to score.

The other tie between Sevilla and Shakhtar is more straightforward with the holders 2-9 to qualify after a 2-2 draw in Ukraine.

Stats from Opta show 80 per cent of teams who have drawn a Europa League first leg awaygo on to qualify and Sevilla have won 11 of their last 12 in this contest at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

Shakhtar are a side packed with quality though and best bet here could be both to score at 4-6 with 888sport.

    Can see Shakhtar scoring but Seville scoring more. I like your BTTS but am going riskier.
    Can see the Reds doing it in 90 by maybe one goal, 1-0, 2-1 maybe but the 6/5 to qualify didn’t grab me.
