On Thursday night the Europa League is back again with a whole boatload of matches being played. We’ve taken the trouble of going through all of the games and finding the best stats and value bets for you. Let’s have a look at what we’ve unearthed.
This one just might slip under most people’s radars but the stats are suggesting we’ll see a few goals here and the German side’s form in particular should see them taking the three points. Beer Sheva aren’t in the best of shape coming into this match, having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five in all competitions, but their scoring record has really caught the eye. They’ve scored in nine out of 10 recent home matches and in their last nine in the Europa League played at home over the last two years they’ve scored in eight. Indeed they’ve won seven of those nine, drawing one and losing one.
Leverkusen though have the quality here to come out on top and are in better form. They’ve won four out of their last five matches, scoring 14 and conceding four, and we think they’ll take the points here and get their second win in Group C so we’re backing Leverkusen to Win & BTTS.
Milan currently top Italy’s Serie A and top Group H with two wins out of two, scoring six goals and conceding just one. Zlatan has scored five over his last five matches in all competitions and it looks like there’s no stopping the 39-year-old Swede. In fairness to Lille, they’re unbeaten over their last 11 matches. However, they’ve drawn the last three in a row.
Milan though have been in mighty form at the San Siro. They’re unbeaten over their last 11 home matches, winning nine and drawing two. Momentum is with the Italian side here and it’s with the big Swede too. The price on Zlatan to score and Milan to Win is too good to turn our noses up at.
Results-wise Feyenoord aren’t coming into this match in the best of shape. However, they’ve scored seven over their last five matches and also have seven in their five most recent home matches. They need to pull their fingers out here as they’re still winless in Group K so far, with one loss and one draw.
CSKA have drawn both of their matches so far, scoring just one and conceding one. They’ve been in good scoring form of late though, scoring 10 over their five most recent matches in all competitions and eight over their five most previous games on the road. With both in good goal-scoring form we’re going with BTTS here.
