Leicester vs Napoli: Both Teams to Score No Draw

TV: BT Sport 2 and BT Sport Ultimate

Group C could well see plenty of fireworks during the Group Stage. It will probably end with Napoli and Leicester topping the group but away trips to Legia Warsaw and Spartak Moscow aren’t the most welcoming of grounds and things could get hairy. Regardless, both sides will want to be at their best on Thursday night and the market is siding with the home team here. Leicester have won three of their five games in all competitions with Napoli winning all three of their competitive games this season.

Leicester have scored five over their five games, conceding six, while Napoli have scored six and have conceded just two. Interestingly, Napoli have faced an English side eight times since 2017 and have only won two, losing five and drawing one. Leicester are obviously a strong side at home, winning four of their last six at the King Power and, while Napoli’s record in England isn’t good, they’ve started the season strongly. Both sides should get on the goal sheet here and both are good enough to beat the other. We’re starting off our Acca with BTTS, No Draw here.

PSV vs Real Sociedad: Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals

TV: BT Sport Extra 2

PSV are already 11 games into their season thanks to their Champions League qualification games where they fell at the final hurdle against Benfica in their sixth game. In the league they’ve won all four of their matches so far and hammered Ajax 0-4 in the Super Cup in early August. Real Sociedad have played just four games this season, winning three and losing one where they’ve impressively kept three clean sheets in their victories.

With Monaco also starring in Group B here neither side can afford a slip up. Of their 11 games so far PSV have only had one draw, Sociedad have had none. PSV only had three league draws at home last season from 17 matches, Sociedad only drew five of their 18 away La Liga games. This PSV side is full of goals but Sociedad are no pushovers. We’re going with Both Teams to Score and Overs here.


Rangers vs Lyon: Both Teams to Score

TV: BT Sport 3

Rangers have been in great form in the league so far this season, winning four and losing one. Lyon have only won two of their five in the league, drawing two and losing one. Rangers have played a total of nine goals to Lyon’s five though, losing 4-2 to Malmo in Champions League qualification and beating Alashkert 1-0 in their Europa League games. The market is a little undecided here with Rangers just about favourites. No doubt because of the gulf in quality between the Scottish Premiership and France’s Ligue 1.

However, Rangers are really tough to beat at home. Of their last 10 competitive matches at Ibrox they’ve only lost one, winning eight and drawing one. Lyon too, while they’ve not started their season the best, have a strong record on their competitive travels and have only lost one of their last 10 away games. Lyon should be the better side on balance but Rangers will be up for this, we’re going to play this one safe and go with Both Teams to Score.

Roma vs CSKA Sofia: 3-0 Correct Score


Roma have won all their games under the tenure of Jose Mourinho but there’s still room to improve. Three of Roma’s five games this season saw Both Teams to Score landing and Mourinho will be doing what he does best to shore up that defence. Sofia are 11 games into their season with six games in the Conference League already under their belts.

However, they’ve only won two of their six games, drawing three and losing one. In their domestic season they’ve won three of their five games, losing and drawing one each. They’ve struggled for goals this season, scoring in just three of those six Champions League matches and, with Roma steadily improving under their Portuguese manager, they should be keeping a Clean Sheet here. 3-0 is the score line catching our eye here as the best value price in the Correct Score market.
