OCT 22: EUROPA LEAGUE BETTING PREVIEW

RonnyDeila_Celtic

CELTIC boss Ronny Deila returns to Norway on Thursday but will he leave with three points?

The former Stromsgodset gaffer has targeted back-to-back wins against the perceived weakest team in Group A but may have to settle for one point at Molde.

The Norwegian champions lead a tight Group A by two points after winning at Fenerbahce. All other matches have been drawn and with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer back at the Molde helm after he was appointed boss yesterday.

The ex-Cardiff gaffer should lift spirits at the club and with Celtic struggling to keep clean sheets I like the draw at 5-2 with McBookie and William Hill.

Celtic’s meetings with Ajax and Fenerbahce ended 2-2 and a third pays 14-1 at McBookie and William Hill. A score draw returns 7-2 at McBookie while Celtic are 8-5 at Betfred to win and Molde a best 2-1 at bet365.

Both teams to score pays 4-6 at Ladbrokes while over 2.5 goals is a shout at 5-6 with Paddy Power.

As well as Deila the tie sees Stefan Johansen returning to Norway after his move from Stromsgodset almost two years ago.

The midfielder, capped 22 times, will be keen to do well against his countrymen and is 4-1 at Betway to score at any time.

Over 2.5 goals at 4-5 with McBookie and others is also the call at Fenerbahce-Ajax. Before a 1-0 win against Kayserispor at the weekend the Turks’ previous five had averaged four a game and Ajax usually score.

Jurgen Klopp makes his Anfield debut and I’d back Liverpool at 8-15 with William Hill if he puts out a strong side against Rubin.

And like Celtic it maybe Spurs have to settle for a draw at Anderlecht with Mauricio Pochettini likely to rotate his squad.

Basel are in my top-10 goals charts and there is every chance they’ll score 2+ at home to Belenenses. The Swiss are on a roll with 10 wins and one draw in 11 league games and two EL victories including a 2-1 success at Fiorentina.

Sometimes it’s worth looking at a side’s weekend fixture and I see St Etienne are away to PSG on Sunday. That could mean they send a weakened side to Dnipro and even if they don’t they can’t take banned striker Robert Beric.

Dnipro have won their last six EL home games and look a decent shout at 23-20 with bet365.

Another side who have caught the eye are AZ who entertain an Augsburg outfit in terrible form. After least season’s fifth place earned them a European debut they are rock bottom with one win in nine and two EL defeats from their first two outings.

The Dutch have won four on the bounce at home and beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 so look a bit big at 19-10 with Betfred. At that price you can have 4-5 with Coral draw no bet.

I’ll look at as many of the other games as possible and add to this preview in the morning but for the moment best bet is overs at Molde.

    Mr Fixit and others, if you google “Dnipro-fk—asse–le-groupe-ac15819″ , you will see the list of St. Etienne players who play tonight. Not sure if that is the “strongest” group.

      Erik, as I say in my preview St Etienne will be weakened ahead of PSG at the weekend.
      My Super Single is about to go up and does feature Dnipro.
