RANGERS and Celtic have made steady starts in the Europa League but face their toughest tests tonight against top seeds.
Gers crashed 2-1 at Young Boys and a trip to Porto is a step up and the home men will feature heavily on accas at 1-2 with McBookie.
Two James Tavernier blunders in Bern were costly last time out and Gerrard knows his side will have to be error free.
And he will take comfort from the fact Krasnodar won 3-2 in Portugal on the way to knocking them out the Champions League qualifiers.
Young Boys also netted there in a 2-1 defeat and with Alfredo Morelos always a goal threat – he hit the opener in Bern – both teams to score looks on at 10-11 with bet365.
Morelos is 9-1 at Unibet to break the deadlock and 3-1 with the same firm to net at anytime – and that's usually his first-scorer odds in the Premiership.
Celtic v Lazio has the potential to be a goalfest and I fancy Neil Lennon's men to pick up the points at 6-4 with McBookie.
The Italians showed weaknesses in losing at Cluj while Celtic blew away the Romanians with one of their best displays of the season.
It could be the Odsonne Edouard v Ciro Immobile show and I fancy them both to score. French Under-21 goal machine Edouard is 19-10 at Betway with Immobile – with four in two games – is 19-10 with Paddy Power.
Lazio's eight Serie A games have totalled 25 goals and they've conceded six in three.
Over 2.5 match goals looks a gimme at 4-5 with McBookie while Celtic and over 2.5 goals pays 31-10.
In many ways Arsenal's Europa League side have performed better than the one Unai Emery plays in the Premier League. Monday's 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United summed up the Gunners' season while in the EL it's been plain sailing with a 3-0 win at Eintracht Frankfurt and 4-0 defeat of Standard Liege 4-0.
Players such as Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin will feature and a Guimaraes side that's lost both ties to nil could be blown away.
Arsenal are no bigger than 2-7 to win but should cover the -1 handicap at 3-4 with Coral and possibly -2 at 11-5 with betfair.
Martinelli netted two against Liege and could have had many more. If he starts back him at 5-1 with Unibet to score first.
My tip for Partizan Belgrade v Man United won't surprise anyone. United's last nine on the road have gone under 2.5 goals and this tie screams unders.
Again youngsters such Brandon Williams, Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood will feature for United and it's going well with four points from two games but just one goal.
This won't be an easy trip though as Partizan are decent at home with one defeat in 10 but rather than take a WDW choice I'd back unders on an acca at 4-5 with Marathonbet.
I hope Wolves can cope with screaming weans because adults have been banned from their sell-out tie at Slovan Bratislava after racist chanting.
The atmosphere therefore will be strange but Wolves can cope after winning away to Besiktas. Slovan are unbeaten at home since April so a draw could be the best bet.
- Edouard to score
- Immobile to score
- Celtic & over 2.5 goals
- Porto v Rangers btts
- Arsenal -2
- Martinelli to score first
- Partizan v Man Utd under 2.5 goals
