It's another big night of European semi-final action and Aston Villa's UEFA Europa Conference League clash with Olympiacos takes centre stage.

Unai Emery's men are red-hot favourites at 1/3 with most firms to reach their first European final since ruling the continent way back in 1982.

But they needed penalties to see off Lille in the last round and a Greek team with far more continental experience than Villa could cause the tournament favourites a few problems.

Aston Villa needed Emiliano Martinez's penalty expertise to see off Lille, but he's suspended for tonight and an injury doubt for the second leg, so a free-scoring Olympiacos side will fancy their chances of scoring in England.

Aston Villa vs Olympiacos: Top Betting Tips

BTTS and over 2.5 goals landed in both legs of Aston Villa's quarter-final, bringing up bets for Kevin Mac, while the first leg of Olympacios' clash with Fenerbache ended 3-2 to help Gabriel cash in.

Emery's side haven't kept many clean sheets all season so combining over 2.5 goals and BTTS looks good again for this clash at 13/10 with Paddy Power.

John McGinn will be at the heart of the midfield battle for Aston Villa and looks good at 13/8 with SkyBet for over 1.5 fouls. The midfielder also chips in with a few assists and looks overpriced at 7/1 (Bet365) in that market.

Fiorentina vs Club Brugge: Top Betting Tips

Fiorentina play Club Brugge in the other Conference League semi-final and the Italians are looking to go one step further after losing last season's final to West Ham.

But the Belgian side are in terrific form, with seven successive wins, while Fiorentina have only claimed two victories in their last seven. That makes me think Brugge might be worth a punt at 11/8 (BoyleSport) to qualify before a ball is kicked.

Both teams have been scoring freely of late so the safest bet is probably going for goals, with over 2.5 strikes priced evens at Bet365.

Roma vs Bayer Leverkusen: Top Betting Tips

The standout tie in the Europa League semi-finals on Thursday is Bayer Leverkusen's clash with Roma in the Eternal City.

The newly crowned German champions are still on track for an Invincible season, and it would be one of the greatest campaigns of all time if they remained unbeaten in both the Bundesliga and Europa League.

But they've been wobbling a little of late, with three successive draws, and needed a last-gasp Robert Andrich strike to claim a 2-2 draw with Stuttgart in their last outing.

Roma are in excellent form, with just one defeat in eight, so I've a feeling Leverkusen might finally taste defeat in the first leg, with the Italian side 27/10 at BetMGM.

Marseille vs Atalanta: Top Betting Tips

Atalanta caused a shock in the Europa League quarter-finals by knocking Liverpool out, and now Marseille stand in the way as the Italian club bid to reach their first European showpiece.

Marseille are having a terrible domestic season and sit seventh in Ligue 1 but they have come alive in Europe and defied the odds to knock out Shakhtar Donetsk, Villarreal and Benfica.

Goals are usually guaranteed with Atalanta so that BTTS and over 2.5 goals bet looks good again at 23/20 (William Hill). Gianluca Scamacca has been revived back in Italy after an ill-fated spell at West Ham and is 7/5 (Paddy Power) for a goal or assist tonight.

Thursday's Football Tips: Super Singles

  • Over 2.5 goals in Fiorentina v Brugge 6/4 888Sport

    Spurs are a poor team away from home. Chelsea very unlucky not to beat villa on Saturday night.
    Chelsea win for me. Good luck.

    • maccathered 4 weeks ago

      Yeah I watched that game Chelsea were clearly the better side and you could argue the same with Spurs v Arsenal. Silva out makes the difference and Spurs have 2 games in hand which they must win if they have any chance of making the top four. Spurs can’t afford to lose tonight. Spurs win for me.

      Adding a couple more small bets – both with Bet365.
      Daniel Podence over 1.5 shots @2.37
      Daniel Podence over 0.5 shots on target @2.50

      Podence scored and assisted in his last two games with Wolves at Villa Park, but I will happily take a couple of shots tonight.
