Siroki Brijeg v Aberdeen Betting Tips: Both teams to profit at Stadion Pecara

Having drawn 1-1 last week, this is another of the Europa League qualifying ties that is finely balanced. With an away-goal safely in the bag, Siroki will be feeling upbeat but all is certainly not lost for Aberdeen and, after a decent performance last week, they’ll also be quietly confident of getting the right result here. Considering that the first-leg was fairly even – Aberdeen fractionally dominated in terms of possession and shots on target but both teams created a reasonable amount while neither were really on top for a substantial part of the match – it’s somewhat surprising that…

HJK Helsinki v KF Shkendija Betting Tips: Both teams to go for it in Helsinki

Shkendija managed to secure a 3-1 victory against HJK Helsinki in their home leg last week which should be enough to see them through barring any mishaps on Thursday. Having said that, HJK have the away goal in the bank and a home tie to come which will give them some hope. HJK are Finland’s most successful club with 11 championships to their name and, after a relatively barren run which has seen them fail to win the league since 2014, they are currently top of the Finnish Veikkausliiga after 17 matches of the 2017 campaign. Having said that, they have…

AEK Larnaca v Cork City Betting Tips: Cypriots to complete the job with ease

Larnaca managed to scrape a valuable win in their first leg match against Cork City. However, given they are such strong favourites in this tie, they are still under a fair bit of pressure going into Thursday’s return fixture. The Cypriot side have been in good form in this second quarter of 2017 and are yet to lose a match in all competitions, including friendlies, since 12th April. Larnaca also have the advantage of playing a decent amount of European football over the years, although, it must also be pointed out that they have reached the group stage of a…

Dinamo Minsk v Rabotnicki Betting Tips: Goals on the cards in Belarus

Having drawn 1-1 last week, this Europa League tie is finally balanced ahead of the second-leg in Belarus. Minsk will probably be happier with their first-leg effort as they secured an away-goal but, with the score-line at 1-1, anything is possible. The Macedonians, who equalised late in the day last week, are likely to be confident of getting on the score-sheet here and could very easily outperform their long odds. With their away goal, and the fact that they’re now on home soil, Dinamo Minsk are warm favourites ahead of this match and it’s fairly hard to argue with that.…

Irtysh Pavlodar v Crvena Zvezda Betting Tips: Both teams can profit going forward at Central Stadium

Kazakhstan might not be considered a hotbed for footballing talent (let’s face it, it’s not); however, in recent years, the country has begun to make strides as far as clubs competing slightly better in Europe goes. Last season, Kairat Almaty made it through to the Europa League proper while both of the Kazakhs’ two entrants are still in the competition this time around. One of those entrants is Irtysh Pavlodar, who, having secured a comfortable 3-0 aggregate victory in the first round, will be in good spirits ahead of this match, even if it against one of Serbia’s most successful clubs…

Ferencvaros v Midtjylland Betting Tips: Goals on the cards in Europa League clash

Hungary meets Denmark in Europa League qualifying action on Thursday evening as Ferencvaros play host to Midtjylland at Groupama Arena. Having secured a comfortable 3-0 aggregate victory over Latvian side Jelgava in the first round, Ferencvaros will be hoping to progress further. Similarly, the Danish visitors also enjoyed themselves in the last round as they trounced Derry City by a staggering ten goals to one on aggregate, hitting the Irish side for six in the first-leg. Midtjylland are coming off the back of what was a tremendously convincing victory in the last round and it’s clear that this has been reflected…

Cork City v AEK Larnaca Betting Tips: Irish side not to be underestimated

Having made it through the first round of qualifying in high-scoring fashion, Irish outfit Cork City are likely to be in bouyant mood ahead of this second round fixture. The Irish Premier Division leaders have been in strong form of late, especially at home, and could easily give their Cypriot opponents plenty to think about in this match. AEK also came through the first round in convincing style (6-1) although their victory was perhaps less impressive since they were playing a side from Gibraltar. Despite commanding that tie, it is very surprising that the visitors are considered favourites ahead of…

Ostersunds FK v Galatasaray Betting Tips: Turks to come out on top in goalfest

This Europa League qualifer sees Swedish side Ostersunds host Turkish giants Galatasaray. Ostersunds have entered their maiden European by virtue of winning last season’s Swedish Cup. The 2017 Swedish league campaign is already well underway with Ostersunds currently sitting in sixth after 14 games, winless in their last three outings in all competitions. Graham Potter’s side have had a few problems at the back recently and their previously-mentioned winless run has mainly been down to an inability to keep clean sheets with none in their last three in all competitions, conceding seven goals in total. However, they have been good…

This Europa League qualifier sees Scottish runners-up Aberdeen host Bosnian Cup winners Siroki Brijeg. Aberdeen will no doubt be pleased with this draw with many saying that it is pretty much a bye to the next round. However, they will want to ensure they do not face the same embarrassment that domestic rivals Rangers had after their loss to Luxembourg side Progres Niederkorn – which many have called ‘the most embarrassing result in British football history’. The Dons were excellent in both boxes last season and had the second-best record in both the Goals For and Goals Against departments with…

Europa League Final: Stats suggest pair closely matched but also expose poor disciplinary record

Of the 64 teams that entered the group stages of this competition back in September 2016, it is Ajax and Manchester United – two teams who were once considered giants on the continental stage – who’ve made the final in Sweden. If the betting is anything to go by – United are a best price of 17/20 to win the game in 90 minutes – then the English outfit are massive favourites and really ought to be getting the job done. However, as the graphic below shows, based on their exploits in this competition so far, the pair look much…

Ajax v Manchester United Betting Tips: Both can get on score-sheet in Europa final

Stockholm is the venue for one of the final European games of the season on Wednesday night as Ajax play Manchester United for the right not only to get their hands on the Europa League trophy but also the right to play in next season’s Champions League. Domestically, Ajax have been on a good run in the last few weeks with six wins from their final seven league games. However, they still lost the league title to Feyenoord on the final day. This is Ajax’s first European final since 1996 and they will be determined to get their hands on…

Manchester United v Celta Vigo Betting Tips: Mourinho’s men to finish the job in typical fashion

Manchester United are going into this match as favourites to qualify, however, one mistake on their part could let Celta Vigo back in with just one goal the difference between the two sides. United lost their last match in the Premier League, bringing an end to their 25-match unbeaten run in the league in the process. Despite this, manager Jose Mourinho was not bothered and clearly stated that his priorities lie in the Europa League. The Red Devils’ strength this season has been their solid back-line which, with just 27 goals conceded, is the second-best in the league. Additionally, their…

Celta Vigo v Man United Betting Tips: Mourinho’s men to get the job done

Thursday’s Europa League semi-final sees Spanish side and Europa League surprise package Celta Vigo host competition favourites Manchester United. Celta Vigo are currently sitting down in 11th in the league but have done extremely well in the Europa League, edging past the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk and Krasnodar to get this far. The Celts have actually been quite disappointing in both boxes this campaign with just 49 goals scored and 57 conceded in 34 matches – neither of these statistics are in the top ten in La Liga. Defence has been the main problem recently with no clean sheet in…

Ajax v Lyon Betting Tips: Visitors defensive frailties to be exposed

This semi-final first leg provides hosts Ajax with an excellent opportunity to put themselves in a strong position ahead of their trip to France. Lyon, for all their attacking qualities, are a side who’ve shown numerous defensive weaknesses in recent weeks and the Dutch side are fancied to take advantage. Home is most certainly where the heart is for Ajax while Lyon have found life on the road tricky of late; the Dutch outfit come into this fixture in imperious form on their own patch having won each of their last ten fixtures, whereas Lyon’s away form, with just three…

Manchester United v Anderlecht Betting Tips: Similar outcome to first leg fancied at Old Trafford

These two could only manage a draw in the first leg but, as United have the away goal, they currently hold a tentative advantage. Jose Mourinho’s side recorded a shock win over his former team and title contenders Chelsea on Sunday which means they stretch their unbeaten run to seven in all competitions. However, this match against Anderlecht is arguably more important in terms of qualifying for the Champions League next season. Defence has been United’s stronghold this season and they have the second-best defensive record in the Premier League with just 24 conceded in 31 games. Furthermore, they have…

Besiktas v Lyon Betting Tips: Turkish side not to be underestimated on home soil

This Europa League tie is teetering on a knife edge and, although Lyon won the first-leg, Besiktas scored that crucial away goal. Besiktas have had a week off since the defeat against Lyon last Thursday, their first since 10th February. Besiktas are five points clear at the top of the table and, despite that first leg loss, things are looking pretty good. Senol Gunes’s side certainly focus on the attacking side of the game and are the top scorers in the Turkish Super Lig with 54 in 27 games. Additionally, they have scored in 12 out of their last 13…

Anderlecht v Manchester United Betting Tips: Lack of goals in Belgium

This Europa League match sees an in form Anderlecht side face an out of form Manchester United side. Despite this, United are still the favourites to win the competition. As mentioned above, Anderlecht are on a great run at the moment with no defeats in their last five in all competitions, winning four of them. This good run of form means Anderlecht are top of the league. Rene Weiler’s men have certainly focused on their attacking play this season and are the Belgian Pro League’s top scorers with 67 goals in 30 games – 11 more than Club Brugge who…

Mönchengladbach v Schalke Betting Tips: Shortage of goals unlikely at Borussia Park

By the time Thursday comes, Gladbach and Schalke be sick of the sight of each other as this will be the third meeting between the two clubs in less than two weeks. In contrast to their recent league meeting – a game that saw Gladbach win by four goals to two – last week’s Europa League last-16 first-leg was a rather cagey affair. Having scored an early away goal, Dieter Hecking’s men seemed happy with their lot and put in a rather subdued, defensive performance for the best part of an hour. On this basis, considering they were afforded most…

AS Roma v Lyon Betting Tips: Yet more goals fancied at Stadio Olimpico

When the draw was made for the last-16 of the Europa League, this clash was one of the more mouth-watering ones and the first leg certainly lived up to it as Lyon came out on top in a six-goal thriller. Roma were 2-1 up at half time in the first-leg and will really feel they should have closed the game out, however, they are now in a real fight and require two goals without reply if they hope to go through. The 4-2 loss had made it three losses on the bounce for Roma but they managed to kick-start again…

KRC Genk v KAA Gent Betting Tips: Hosts to stamp their authority once more

This all-Belgian clash turned out to be a thriller in the first leg as KRC Genk managed to secure a 5-2 win away at KAA Gent. Genk will be most pleased with their win because they scored five away goals which means that Gent will have to score four without reply this Thursday to have any chance of going through. The Smurfs followed up this emphatic victory with another in the league at the weekend as they battered bottom-of-the-table Westerlo 4-0 to push themselves up to 8th in the table. Prior to that match in Gent, goals had been a…

Manchester United v FC Rostov Betting Tips: Mourinho’s men to edge out visitors

The first leg of this match was a bit of a slug-fest and uneasy on the eye as both sides carved out a 1-1 draw. Although they failed to win, Manchester United will be happy with this result as it secures an away-goal for them to capitalise on at Old Trafford. However, their FA Cup match against Chelsea was a poor display, particularly after they went down to ten men and they really failed to threaten their opponents goal whatsoever. This mean’s United’s win-less run stretches to three in all competitions. As you would expect from a Jose Mourinho side,…

Krasnodar v Celta Vigo Betting Tips: Russians to use home advantage to good effect

Spanish side Celta Vigo snatched a last-minute winner to clinch a 2-1 victory in the first leg of this Europa League tie, however, Krasnodar still managed to score a vital away goal. Krasnodar may have conceded that second goal in the dying moments of the first match but will still be fairly pleased with the result which probably makes them favourites to go through in Krasnodar. Since that loss to the Spaniards, the Bulls secured a 2-1 victory of their own away at Lokomotiv Moscow in the league at the weekend, boosting them up to 4th in the table and…

Ajax v F.C. Copenhagen Betting Tips: Amsterdam Arena to be treated to goals at both ends

Having set off at a frantic pace in the first-leg – took the lead after less than a minute – Copenhagen proved that they’re no mugs and, despite conceding shortly after going in front, take a 2-1 lead with them to Amsterdam. However, with an away-goal in the bag, Ajax certainly won’t feel too downbeat and are very much still in this tie. What this pair showed in the first-leg was something of a rather unsurprising appetite to get forward. Not only did they get forward, but both proved themselves to be capable of hurting each other. In what was…

Olympiakos v Besiktas Betting Tips: Turkish outfit to go well in Greece

Having got the better of Turkish side Osmanlispor in the previous round, Olympiakos have been rewarded with a last-16 tie against yet more Turkish opposition, although this time they take on a side of higher calibre in Besiktas. With the visitors in fine form at the moment, it’s likely that Olympiakos will need a positive result at home to stand any chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals; however, with the way these two have been performing of late, the Turkish side are the team to side with here. Given their superior form of late, coupled with a strong performance away…

F.C. Copenhagen v Ajax Betting Tips: Tight game expected at Parken Stadium

Copenhagen and Ajax are two sides who advanced to the last-16 in rather unassuming style. The Dutch outfit squeezed through with a 1-0 aggregate score-line against Legia, while Copenhagen also secured passage to the last-16 via a single-goal aggregate victory (2-1). On the face of it, this looks to be a tie that is particularly hard to call. Neither of these two teams are easy to beat in their respective home and away matches and we could be in for quite a cagey, low-key affair here. There are two bets that catch the eye and these are: ‘0-0 at Half-Time’…

Schalke v Mönchengladbach Betting Tips: Visitors to continue rich scoring form

Having beaten this very opposition by four goals to two on Saturday evening, an in-form Mönchengladbach take on Schalke for the second time in five days, only this time they travel to Gelsenkirchen to do so. It’s no secret that Gladbach suffered a poor start to the campaign before continuing in the same vein right up until December; however, things have since turned around and, with Dieter Hecking now at the helm, Borussia Mönchengladbach are once again a force to be reckoned with in Germany. From a betting point of view, considering the visitors bagged four goals against this very opposition at the…

Lyon v AS Roma Betting Tips: Italian side to flex their muscles

These two teams have ambitions of competing in the Champions League on a regular basis as well as challenging bigger clubs in their domestic league for honours. However, such ambitions can be put on hold as the Europa League is their best chance of claiming silverware this season. Although Lyon are on a good run at the moment with no defeats in their last five in all competitions, winning four of them, they are well off the pace in the French league and are 15 points off Nice in 3rd place. Defence has certainly been the main problem for Bruno…
