Europa League Qualifiers: An 8/1 traders’ treble on Thursday’s clashes

Can Rangers hold off Midtjylland at Ibrox?


Trabzonspor v Sparta Prague

Thursday, 18:30

Trabzonspor were two goals down and looking in serious danger of throwing the tie away in Prague last week – until they scored two goals in the last five minutes to stun the home crowd.

They will be eager not to let this happen again in the home leg. They look a solid bet at 4/6 to win the game in 90 mins.

Pick: Trabzonspor to win – 4/6

Gent v AEK Larnaca

Thursday, 19:30

Gent were coasting in the first leg in Cyprus when they conceded a late goal to level the tie going into the second leg.

But they had the better of the first leg, matching Larnaca on possession stats and doubling the Cypriots’ shots on target tally.

Gent were beaten in the league last weekend and will want to use this fixture to steady the ship midweek.

Pick: Gent to win – 1/2

Rangers v FC Midtjylland

Thursday, 19:45

Last week, Rangers did a job on one of Denmark’s best sides, who were unbeaten since the start of July.

This was a smash and grab job by Steven Gerrard’s men who stunned Midtjylland by scoring three unanswered goals within the hour, eventually running out 4-2 winners.

This allows Rangers to not have to apply as much pressure in the home leg, meaning the draw could be the play here at 11/4.

Rangers will feel the job is done and will just want to contain the Danes and progress to the next round.

Pick: Draw – 11/4
