IT'S been a good week so far but it's about to get much tougher.

Betting on Europa League matches can be hazardous and as always the advice is low stakes and check last-minute team news as plenty of reserves will be in the frame.

Even Juventus owner Andrea Agnelli would rather sell more of his Fiats than reach the Final – and his side's hosting it.

Spurs, 8-5 at William Hill, will play a partially weakened team but that should be too good for Dnipro, managed by former White Hart Lane gaffer Jaunde Ramos.

If boss Tim Sherwood starts consider Roberto Soldado at 2-1 with McBookie to score against that's not played competitively since before Christmas.

The Spaniard, 6-1 to hit the opener, has a point to prove to Sherwood after being dropped in favour of Emmanuel Adebayor.

Swansea have a tougher tie against one of the tournament favourites Napoli but boss Rafael Benitez, who won the tournament last season with Chelsea, is unlikely to risk stars such as Gonzalo Higuain.

New boss Garry Monk will see this tie as a distraction so Napoli could be worth a risk at 6-4 (various).

Juventus boast a nine-point lead at the top of Serie A but will have one eye on Sunday's derby against Torino. Best odds at home to Trabzonspor are no bigger than 1-5 so you'll have to look at Juve minus one at 8-13 with Stan James for value.

Elsewhere Genk (29-20, Hills) can see off struggling Russians Anzhi while Valencia could be worth a look at 7-5 at Coral against Dynamo Kiev after the match was moved from Ukraine to Cyprus.

    Tim Sherwood reported that Younes Kaboul, Emmanuel Adebayor, Aaron Lennon, Hugo Lloris and Kyle Walker have all stayed behind as we prepare to face FC Dnipro in our Europa League Round of 32 first leg on Thursday night.

  4. ChTheScot 5 years ago

    Have streamed a few Dnipro games this season and won a few quid out of them, do not underestimate how good they can be. Along with the Spurs team news I fully expect a Dnipro win and I’m sure they’ll get a few fans in the UK by the way they play and attack.

    Just out of interest does anyone fancy Ludogorets away at Lazio? They’ve been some what a dark horse in this tournament. Whilst I concede they probably wont win in Italy surely double chance at 7/5 is certainly worth a look.
    Spurs also look great value but I’d be interested to see the team news…Have no faith in Soldado and Defoe was bang on fire in the group stages.

  9. craigyboy 5 years ago

    My small stake accy for tomorrow…
    Lodogorets double chance

    approx. 15/1

  10. Shaun tanner 5 years ago

    craigyboy I’m unsure on the Lazio v Ludogorets game, both teams came through the group stages unbeaten some facts that might help you.

    Lazio’s previous four games against Bulgarian opponents ended W3 D0 L1 (W1 D0 L1 in Rome – W2 D0 L0 in Bulgaria).

    That lone Lazio defeat – 1-0 to PFC Levski Sofia in the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League group stage – remains the only victory for a Bulgarian club in 23 visits to Italy, with Italian sides’ home record against Bulgarian teams reading W17 D5 L1.

    Lazio came through the UEFA Europa League group stage undefeated (W3 D3) for the second consecutive campaign, with a 1-1 draw in the second leg of their quarter-final elimination by Fenerbahçe SK last season extending their unbeaten run to seven games.

    Lazio are also unbeaten in ten European home fixtures (W7 D3) since a 3-1 loss to Club Atlético de Madrid at this stage of the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League.

    Ludogorets progressed through the group stage in style (W5 D1), notably winning all three of their away fixtures.

  11. ChTheScot 5 years ago

    I see your point with Dnipro, but I was really surprised and impressed with how good they are. Spurs have left a few players behind and the Europa League is more important to Dnipro than Spurs who have much bigger things on their mind. Could go either way I just see a bit of value with them to small stakes of course.

  12. harry 5 years ago

    Dnipro price seems to be falling, makes me wonder what team Sherwood will select. I would hang fire on first goalscorer bets until the team is announced. If Adebayour really is injured, and Defoe off to Toronto i doubt he will risk Soldado.

  13. MrMarkSkid 5 years ago

    All about the goals with the Europa, BTTS or over 2.5 is where the money’s at. Easier trying 2 get Howard Webb to give Liverpool a pen than get winning team acca up. 8-)

    Be careful with betting on Lyon, they face Lille this weekend and Lyon boss Rémi Garde has decided to rotate his squad:

    “All licensees, except Bisevac who is suspended for the match against Lille on Sunday so remained in Lyon. Note that the Rhodanien club took twelve of his club-trained players.

    So not called are first goalkeeper Anthony Lopes (gk 19/0), Umiti (df 18/0), Bedimo (df 24/0), Dabo (df 6/0), Miguel Lopes (df 14/0), Fofana (mf 23/2), Gourcuff (mf 14/3), Malbranque (mf 16/1), Gonalois (mf 23/0), Grenier (mf 23/4), Lacazette (att 23/13), Benzia (att 10/2) and Gomis att 20/10)”.

  18. BusinessmanNL 5 years ago

    The L1 first spots secure much more money than a win in UEFA league. I think their main focus is on qualification for the CL next year and maybe win the cup.

    My bet for this game will be Under 2,5.

  31. Neil 5 years ago

    Genk is a no-bet for me. Can certainly see why you’d go for them, Anzhi are terrible but I’m put off by Genk’s own poor form, and the fact IMO they’re nowt special themselves. Think 7/5 is about right, good luck to anyone going for them, though.

    If you’re struggling to justify a bet, then quite simply the answer is – don’t! I’ve lost plenty of money in the past with silly bets just for the sake of betting. Would like to think I’m smarter nowadays but I know, the urge is there.

    Only bet if you can justify why you’ve gone for the bet – not just because “you fancied a bet”. Good luck if you do!

    In terms of sheer quality in their squad, it’s still a good price. But the EL is all about the starting XI and mentality.

    In the last 14 home games, have Anzhi Makhachkala on average scored 1 goal.
    While they have let in on average 1 goal on their home field.

    In Genk latest 20 away games, they have scored an average of 1.25 goals. While they have let in 1.25 goals on average.

    One for the BTTS maybe?

    Anzhi signed 2 players on loan from Zenit recently. One of them is a fine player, russian international called Vladimir Bystrov. Does anyone know if these 2 are eligable for tonights game?

  43. Shaun tanner 5 years ago

    bryantdemolish, I can see where your coming from but for a start Dortmund aren’t as good as the one that reached the champions league final last season, which is visible just by looking at the bundesliga table.
    It’s potentially a good price for Napoli but I will wait to see if they play a similiar side to the one that beat Dortmund, with doubts over players like Higuian concerning me.

    • bryantdemolish 5 years ago

      It makes no difference if Dortmund weren’t the team they are 2 years ago but neither are Swansea city, and even if they were they wouldn’t stand a chance, stop making out like you know what your talking about!

      Benitez record in Europe is phenominal, if Napoli don’t win tonight I will be amazed!

  44. Oor man in Napoli 5 years ago

    Ha! Bryantdemolish, thats what I like to see. Confidence!

    but Neil said it. And Shaun said it, though Dortmund are still a good team and could probably give anyone a good doing if required. Its also fair to say Napoli are better than when they played the champions games. Definitely more depth and options in the team now.

    But this is a fact; Serie A first Europa second. This is the law inside the team. Rafa cant dodge it and he accepts it.

    And last year, Napoli didnt even bother trying in the Europa, they got spanked 5-0 from a average Victoria Plzen(yes, different team, different manager but perhaps why the high price is what it is)

  45. Shaun tanner 5 years ago

    bryantdemolish I will make out what I want thanks. Just because you say someones going to win doesnt’t mean they always will, else I’m sure you’d have your own football tipping website. Everyone has their own opinions which is why these forums are so good to come on to.
    Fpr the record, I never said Napoli wouldn’t win but I’d rather see team line ups first. This to me seems pretty sensible in the Europa league.

    • bryantdemolish 5 years ago

      Shaun Tanner,

      I just hate it when people who have no idea about football.

      Your trying to tell me and everyone else jon jon shelvely is the new hamsik?

  46. Neil 5 years ago


    No-one is telling you that. What we’re saying is you need to get the right price for a full strength Napoli side / weakened side.

    That is, unless you’re on the wind-up, which I’d imagine you are.

  47. bryantdemolish 5 years ago

    NOTE: SHAUN TANNERS ONLY COMMENNT WHERE HE HAS HAD A BET.In the last 14 home games, have Anzhi Makhachkala on average scored 1 goal.
    While they have let in on average 1 goal on their home field.

    In Genk latest 20 away games, they have scored an average of 1.25 goals. While they have let in 1.25 goals on average.

    One for the BTTS maybe?


  48. Shaun tanner 5 years ago

    Sorry I take it you meant Jonjo Shelvey there? Look I wouldn’t like to tell anyone thing anything as I wouldn’t like to be told. These are opinions no one will ever be right 100% all of the time. Of course I know on paper Napoli are stronger than Swansea but theres more to a football match than who has the stronger players, else surely every game would be a forgone conclusion before it starts. There are all kinds of circumstances that can effect a match, surely anyone who knows anything about football would know this.

    As I say, not putting much on tonight, but a bet for me that I think represents value is a BTTS + match result double on

    Lazio draw

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Speedy, double chance is taking two outcomes for one match, for example Spurs and draw.

  63. Shaun tanner 5 years ago

    My anytime scorer tip of the day was between Tevez or Osvaldo. I’ve gone for the latter more because of the price.
    NB anytime scorer will be Soldado. Just looked at the Spurs team and it should be more than strong enough to take care of Dnipro. To complete the treble I’ve gone for Matri to score for Fiorentina, who field a pretty strong team for me.
    I will also take a BTTS single in the Juventus game at good price.
    These are my main bets for 6 kick offs but all at small stake. Anytimes will be done as singles and a treble.

    My longshot punts are Konopljanka (Dnipro) and Adin (Trabzonspor) to score anytime and a BTTS 5 fold consisting of Spurs, Juventus, Ajax, Lazio and Swansea all done at very small stakes.

  64. Rob 5 years ago

    Looks like Benfica have made some changes to their normal X1, so approach with caution

  65. Shaun tanner 5 years ago

    I don’t fancy much in the later games but like the look of Porto to win at home and for there to be goals in the Ajax game. I will be on them both + Bony and Pandev to score anytime of they start. Just to state these are just my opinions and my personal bets.

    Good luck everyone!!

  66. Speedy 5 years ago

    Cheers mr f. Prob not worth it eh maybe just leave the way it is .

  67. Shaun tanner 5 years ago

    My anytime scorer tip of the day has already come in with Osvaldo (see earlier post) and Matri has scored, just need Soldado to score to complete the treble!!

  79. ChTheScot 5 years ago

    Napoli in my opinion are dire, apart from Mertens who is seriously underrated. Not touching the game with a barge pole as Swansea are just as bad, think a lot of people are betting on the name of Napoli not the actual team.

  80. Scuzzle 5 years ago

    First 10 mins of the Swansea game is more worth watching than the entire Spurs game.
    If Spurs can get their act together I thing they could beat Dnipro buy a few goals in the return fixture.

    Note to self….When Europa league nights come round go with your gut instinct and have a small wager on them. Ludogorets are the team again…to make up for this I’m going to have a few quid on them to get to the final they have been superb this season.
    Problem I have is I always like the look of teams like Spurs and Napoli and then people convince me that’s where the money has to go. Whilst both of these teams on paper should have won it was Napoli that disappointed me the most. They looked dangerous for five mins and then Swansea absolutely hammered them all over the park and made them look ordinary. Swansea deserved at least a 2-0 win out of that tonight and whilst it isn’t a bad result on paper I can see Napoli turning them over at home.

  86. Alan 5 years ago

    The Europa League is too unpredictable. It’s like betting on the early rounds of the Carling and FA Cups. That’s why I only lost 2 quid tonight, lol. I had a £1 MR & BTTS treble on the early games, and another on the later games. Didn’t get any right.

  87. Speedy 5 years ago

    Maybe I know a bit more about football than what you think.

    I think Hamsik is magician because I’m sure he disappeared tonight.

    Who looks RIDICULOUS now!!!

    Give people a chance on here before slating them. (sorry everyone, see earlier posts if this makes no sense)

    GaryEdinburgh- spurs let us down big time today with soldado never stepping up this evening. That’s the Europa league for you!!! I had the Dnipro scorer as a long shot bet but would have took that back for Soldado to of scored and my treble to come up. Oh well, hope things came good for you elsewhere and I’m sure the weekend will be more fruitful for the both of us ( :
