I EXPECT plenty of goals from Thursday's Europa League matches and that means loads of opportunities on the both teams to score market.

I'll start with one that jumped out at me straight away – Braga v Young Boys.

Braga have a fantastic European record, beating sides such as Celtic, Liverpool and Arsenal at home last season.

Young Boys were knocked out of the Champions League qualifiers by Spurs last season despite building up a 3-0 lead and have netted seven in their last three away fixtures.

Braga don't score as many as they should but will need at least one to take to Switzerland. This one pays 4-6 at bet365 and Chandler.

Next it's another match-up between two attacking teams, Hannover v Sevilla. The Spanish are the current favourites on the outrights although that's likely to change when the Champions League dropouts are added.

But Sevilla face a tough test against the Bundesliga side who are decent going forward. Of all the games the sides have played this season, including friendlies, 13 of 15 have gone over 2.5 goals. There should more here and both to score pays 4-6 at boylesports.

I also like the look of Bursaspor v Anderlecht. The Turks, having played in the Champions League group stage last season, are building their Euro profile and never make it easy for sides at home.

Anderlecht are expected to qualify and probably will but only after conceding on their travels. Back this at 10-11 with William Hill.

Another side strong at home are PAOK but visitors Karpaty Lvov brought this market up a few times last season on their Euro debut. The Ukrainians are a decent outfit and I expect them to at least score in Salonika. You can have 11-10 with Paddy Power and William Hill.

Finally, go for Maccabi v Panathinaikos. A trip to Israel is never easy and the Greeks will still be hurting over their Champions League exit to Odense after losing 4-3 at home.

Maccabi banged in six at home to Zeljeznicar in the last round while Panathinaikos have netted in their last six competitive games. This pays 19-20 at William Hill.
