Astra Giurgiu v AS Roma Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Astra Giurgiu v AS Roma Betting Tips

One of the final matches in Group E sees Roma, who have already sealed first place, travel to Astra who ideally need to pick up all three points to secure the second qualification spot ahead of Austria Vienna. Astra snatched a dramatic last-minute winner against Austria Vienna in the previous round of matches thanks to a Constantin Budescu penalty. That penalty has put the Romanian side in pole position and they know that anything less than a win for Austria Vienna in their match against bottom side Viktoria Plzen, sends Astra through. Whilst they have done well in the Europa…

AZ Alkmaar v Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

AZ Alkmaar v Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

One of the final matches in Group D sees group winners Zenit St. Petersburg travel to Alkmaar to take on AZ who currently sit second but probably need a win in order to ensure qualification to the knockout rounds given the tight nature of this group. If you watched the AZ’s second match of the Europa League Group Stage in which they lost 5-0 to Thursday’s opponents Zenit St. Petersburg in Russia, nobody would blame you for thinking they were destined for elimination. However, the Dutch side have managed to revive their campaign somewhat with their vital win against Dundalk…

Rapid Vienna v Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Rapid Vienna v Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips

One of the final matches in Group F sees Athletic Bilbao take on Rapid Vienna. Although the two teams to qualify from the group has already been decided with Athletic going through with KRC Genk, top spot has yet to be confirmed and the Spaniards will be hoping to claim that first place with a win here. Two draws against Italian side and Europa League newcomers Sassuolo have cost Rapid Vienna any chance of playing in the knockout rounds. Their only win of the group campaign was on match-day one when they sneaked past KRC Genk in a 3-2 victory.…

Shakhtar Donetsk v Konyaspor Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Shakhtar Donetsk v Konyaspor Betting Tips

This match sees the top and bottom of Europa League Group H come together as Shakhtar Donetsk, who have already secured top spot, host Konyaspor for whom it would take a miracle to qualify for the knockout rounds. Shakhtar Donetsk have blitzed their way through the Europa League so far having won all four of their matches, scoring 13 goals (joint-top with Zenit St. Petersburg) and conceding just three. The Ukrainian side of course won this competition under legendary manager Mircea Lucescu back in 2009 and repeating this feat is most certainly the aim for 2017. Of course it is not…

Zenit St. Petersburg v Maccabi Tel Aviv Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Zenit St. Petersburg v Maccabi Tel Aviv Betting Tips

Whilst Zenit St. Petersburg have already qualified from Group D with a one hundred percent record, Maccabi Tel Aviv still have a decent chance of making the knockout rounds, despite having racked up just four points so far. Of course Zenit’s main aim is to be successful in the Champions League but it is important to remember that this competition brings back a lot of good memories for the St. Petersburg side after they won it back in the UEFA Cup days of 2008. They are certainly not treating this competition as sub-standard this season – the Russian side have…

FC Krasnodar v Red Bull Salzburg Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

FC Krasnodar v Red Bull Salzburg Betting Tips

Beyond Schalke 04 who should finish top, Group I is actually quite tight in the race for that second spot. Krasnodar own it at the moment but are just three points ahead of rivals Red Bull Salzburg and Nice. The result of this match between Krasnodar and Salzburg is likely to have a large impact on the outcome of the group. Krasnodar have had a very mixed record of late with just two wins in their last five matches. However, it is mainly their away form that lets them down with no win on the road since a cup victory…

Fenerbahce v Manchester United Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Fenerbahce v Manchester United Betting Tips

This match between arguably the two biggest sides in Europa League Group A is a big game for both. If Manchester United leave Istanbul with all three points then they are pretty much guaranteed a spot in the knockout rounds whilst Fenerbahce will also feel they need to take maximum points to give themselves a fighting chance of qualifying from this tight group. Fenerbahce looked out of sorts in their trip to Old Trafford in the last round of European fixtures and were battered 4-1. The consolation from Robin Van Persie was the only positive manager Dick Advocaat could take…

KAA Gent v Shakhtar Donetsk Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

KAA Gent v Shakhtar Donetsk Betting Tips

This match in Europa League Group H may be a contest between the top two, but it’s certainly a game that is of more importance to the home side. KAA Gent was the surprise package in last season’s Champions League, qualifying out of a difficult group before being knocked out by VFL Wolfsburg. This season they find themselves in Europe’s secondary competition and they were faring well with one win and one draw before a 5-0 thrashing by Thursday night’s opponents Shakhtar Donetsk in the last round of fixtures. Shakhtar are undoubtedly the dominant force in the group but Gent…

Schalke 04 v FC Krasnodar Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Schalke 04 v FC Krasnodar Betting Tips

Group I has three sides in Schalke 04, Krasnodar and Nice who are all in pretty good form in their domestic leagues and so the race to finish in those top two qualifying spots is pretty tense. This makes this match between the first two all the more important, whoever loses hands the initiative back to Nice to go ahead and nick their place in the knockout rounds. After their shocking start of five straight losses in the Bundesliga, Schalke have picked up in recent weeks and are undefeated in their last four league matches, placing them 12th in the…

FK Krasnodar v Schalke 04 Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

FK Krasnodar v Schalke 04 Betting Tips

This match sees the two top dogs from Europa League Group I go head-to-head to see who is truly the head of the pack. Krasndodar have really picked up after a minor early-season blip and are unbeaten since new manager Igor Shalimov took charge back in mid-September. Their best form has come at home where they have won all three of their matches under Shalimov, scoring eight goals in the process. Due to the good form of the teams in and around them in the Russian Premier League, the Bulls only find themselves in sixth place. However, they should easily…

Dundalk v Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Dundalk v Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

Whilst many expected Zenit to be topping this group with relative ease after two games, part-time Irish side Dundalk are continuing their European fairytale – they currently sit second and are undefeated. European debutants Dundalk have hatched the perfect game plan in their two previous Europa League fixtures where they have achieved a draw and a victory. The Lilywhites know that they are not going to go and blitz teams like they do in the Irish League so instead they look to sit back and wait for their opportunities to come – making the most of them. It is no…

Manchester United v Zorya Luhansk Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Manchester United v Zorya Luhansk Betting Tips

Manchester United had a bit of a shock in their first Europa League match this season by losing to Feyenoord (although I have to say (smugly) that I tipped the Feyenoord win, so was definitely pleased by this result!) but they should better that result against Ukrainian minnows Zorya Luhansk. Having said that, Yuriy Vernydub’s side showed they are no pushovers by holding Fenerbahce to a 1-1 draw on match-day one. Although they lost their next Premier League fixture against Watford following their defeat in Rotterdam, Jose Mourinho’s United side have suddenly improved. They managed to see off League One…

Steaua București v Villarreal CF Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

Steaua București v Villarreal CF Betting Tip

Having made it into this competition as a result of failing to qualify for the Champions League via the play-offs, these two teams experienced contrasting starts to life in Group L a fortnight ago. After conceding in the second minute of the match, Villarreal fought back to claim a 2-1 victory over Swiss side Zurich, while Steaua slumped to a 2-0 away defeat at the hands of Turkish outfit Osmanlıspor. As a side with fairly lofty ambitions, Villarreal must look at the Europa League as a potential passage through to Champions League football next season. With this in mind, although…

Hapoel Be’er Sheva v Southampton Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Hapoel Be’er Sheva v Southampton Betting Tips

When this group was announced, Hapoel Be’er Sheva were considered by many as the underdogs and all three of the others will have pinpointed the Israeli side as a team to collect points off. However, Hapoel dispelled such notions on match-day one as they walked away from the San Siro with all three points having beaten Internazionale (0-2). Although the Italian giants are not the side they once were, this was still a great result and it means that this group could be a lot closer than people thought. Southampton also got things off to a winning start on match-day one…

Dundalk v Maccabi Tel Aviv Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Dundalk v Maccabi Tel Aviv Betting Tips

Irish side Dundalk made history when they qualified for the group stages of this tournament a few months ago. Although they’d been involved in the qualifying rounds of both the UEFA Cup/Europa League and the European Cup/Champions League several times previously, the 2016/2017 renewal of the former is a first proper foray into European football for Dundalk – a great achievement for a club who play their football in a ground that holds less than 5,000 fans. In securing a credible 1-1 draw against AZ Alkmaar on match-day one, the Irish outfit proved that they’re not just in Group D…

Zenit St. Petersburg v AZ Alkmaar Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Zenit St. Petersburg v AZ Alkmaar Betting Tips

These two sides will feel they are the two favourites to advance from Group D in this year’s Europa League. Whilst Zenit are the favourites here, they have not had a good time in European football over the last few years so do not underestimate AZ Alkmaar’s chances on Thursday night. Zenit pulled off one of the greatest comebacks you will ever see a fortnight ago. The Russian side were 3-0 down in the 76th minute away in Tel Aviv but managed to somehow recover and pull off a dramatic 4-3 victory thanks to Luka Djordjevic’s 92nd minute winner. Going…

FC Krasnodar v OGC Nice Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

FC Krasnodar v OGC Nice Betting Tip

These two sides are relative unknowns in European football but are making new waves in their own domestic leagues. Krasnodar, although they have fallen away recently, will feel they still have a relatively decent chance of challenging for the Champions Leauge places in the Russian Premier League whilst OCG Nice sit top of Ligue 1 ahead of the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco. Although there was a lot of bemusement when Oleg Kononov left his role as Krasnodar manager just before Europa League matchday one, the Bulls have done very well since his departure. Despite the chaos surrounding the…

Astra Giurgiu v Austria Vienna Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

Astra Giurgiu v Austria Vienna Betting Tip

This match may not be the most eye-catching of all the Europa League ties happening on Thursday night but luckily for punters there is some money to be made on this match. Astra Girgiu managed to beat West Ham United in the qualifiers to make it to the Europa League group stage but they have had an absolutely disastrous start to their Romanian Liga I title defence and currently sit in a lowly 11th position. Following top of the table Steaua Bucharest’s win over Astra at the weekend, Steaua owner Gigi Becali, who themselves were thrashed by Manchester City in…

Red Bull Salzburg v Krasnodar Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

Red Bull Salzburg v Krasnodar Betting Tip

Group I looks quite competitive with all four sides feeling they will have a decent chance of claiming top spot, although it must be said that Schalke 04 are reasonably strong favourites. If you count the Red Bull branding of SV Austria Salzburg as a new team then these two sides were formed in 2005 and 2008 respectively. This is certainly a battle between two extremely modern and young clubs. Red Bull Salzburg are the Austrian champions and have got their title defence off to a relatively good start. They may sit third in the table, however, they are only…

Southampton v Sparta Prague Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

Southampton v Sparta Prague Betting Tip

Inter Milan are undoubtedly the biggest club in Group K but Southampton are probably the better side nowadays. Sparta Prague did very well in this competition last season and will be keen to emulate that success. Although the Saints are arguably better than Inter Milan on paper, they have had a poor start to their Premier League campaign and currently find themselves down in 18th – inside the relegation places. Southampton have a habit of finding excellent managers from the continent, as seen with Mauricio Pochettino and Ronald Koeman, before they leave for pastures new which allows Southampton to receive…

Feyenoord v Manchester United Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Feyenoord v Manchester United Betting Tips

Group A is probably the strongest out of all the Europa League groups this season. Manchester United start as the clear favourites but both Feyenoord and Fenerbahce will feel they have a good chance of claiming at least second spot, perhaps even top if United almost boycott the competition. Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk should not be underestimated either – there is always one team that surprises in at least one of the groups. Feyenoord have made a superb start to their Eredivisie campaign having won all of their matches and unsurprisingly they sit top of the league after that stunning…

Maccabi Tel-Aviv v Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

BR Team Tips

Maccabi Tel-Aviv v Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

Group D is rather weak and Zenit will fancy their chances of topping the group, however, second place is up for grabs – most likely between Maccabi Tel-Aviv and AZ Alkmaar rather than part-time Irish side Dundalk. Both of these sides will be keen to show they can do well at this level and get off to a good side. Home side Maccabi have seemingly recruited some of the finest Israeli talents produced in recent years with the likes of Tal Ben Haim and Yossi Benayoun. They surprisingly lost the Israeli title last season but have made a decent start…

West Ham United v Astra Giurgiu Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

West Ham United v Astra Giurgiu Betting Tip

Astra’s late equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw in their home leg gives them a chance of progressing through to the Europa League group stages. However, the Hammers managed to secure a vital away goal. West Ham managed to crown their first Premier League match at their new stadium with a 1-0 win against Bournemouth.  The atmosphere was rocking at the former Olympic Stadium last weekend and I would expect similar here. As mentioned on my previous tips about West Ham, it is vital that they start playing in Europe on a regular basis so that they can move forward…

IFK Goteburg v FK Qarabag Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

IFK Goteburg v FK Qarabag Betting Tip

IFK do have the European monopoly over their Azeri opponents having won the UEFA Cup a couple of times in the 1980s, however, Qarabag are the front of a new football culture in Azerbaijan which is striving to sit at the table with the big boys. Swedish side IFK came through a tough draw against Finnish record title holders HJK Helsinki in impressive fashion by beating them 2-0 on their own patch. Things are not going to badly on the domestic front as they currently sit in fourth place, just outside the European spots (but only by one point). Qarabag…

Astra Giurgiu v West Ham United Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

Astra Giurgiu v West Ham United Betting Tip

Two sides who are quite well known around Europe go head-to-head for a place in the Europa League group stages. Astra suffered a mauling at the hands of Danish champions FC Copenhagen in the Champions League third qualifying round and were thus demoted into the Europa League qualifiers. Things have hardly fared better domestically with Marius Șumudică’s side finding themselves in ninth place in Liga I after four games, having only just notched their first win of the season last weekend. West Ham faced a tough opening Premier League fixture against Chelsea and their new boss Antonio Conte on Monday…

Panathinaikos v Brondby IF Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

Panathinaikos v Brondby IF Betting Tip

Both of these teams are among the top dogs in their own domestic leagues but when it comes to European football they leave a lot to be desired. Whilst still considered one of the giants of Greek football, Panathinaikos have been swept aside by the dominance of Olympiakos in the last few years. Last season they managed to finish in second place but were still an incredible 30 points behind Olympiakos in the standings so who knows how long it will take for them to once again be serious contenders for the Greek Superleague. In terms of Europe they have…

Krasnodar v Partizani Tirana Betting Tip

BR Team Tips

Krasnodar v Partizani Tirana Betting Tip

On paper it looks like there can only be one winner from these two Eastern European sides. Krasnodar are going very well in the Russian Premier League and currently sit top of the table after two wins and one draw. The Bulls are a bit of a sleeping giant in Russian football and already look like they could be serious title contenders this season. Last season’s top goalscorer Fedor Smolov has carried his fine form into this season and has already notched five goals. However, Krasnodar’s defence is as impressive as their attack with Oleg Kononov’s team only conceding one…
