5pm: Bodo/Glimt v Linfield – Bodo/Glimt Score Over 1.5 First Half Goals

Northern Ireland’s Linfield hold a 0-1 advantage going into the second leg of their tie against Norway’s Bodo/Glimt and will face either Sweden’s Malmo or Lithuania’s Zalgiris in the following round. Both teams come into this tie in good shape with the home side having won three and lost two of their last five fixtures in all competitions, losing the other two. On home soil they’ve gone unbeaten over their last seven games played there and have won four and drawn one of their last five with Over 2.5 goals landing in four of them, scoring 16 and conceding just three.

Linfield have won all five of their most recently played games, however, three of them were friendlies so looking at competitive games only they’ve won three, drawn one and lost one. On their travels they’ve also won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five competitive games where they scored six and conceded three. The hosts are in great goal-scoring form and we need to capitalise on that and looking further into the stats we see that over their last four home games they’ve scored at least two goals in the opening 45 minutes. With them needing to come out of the traps fast here we’re getting some great value on Bodo/Glimt to Score Over 1.5 First Half Goals.

6pm: Malmo v Zalgiris – Over 2.5 Goals

TV: OneFootball

Lithuanian champions Zalgiris take a 0-1 lead into this second leg but the home side are very much fancied to turn it around and qualify for the following round. Malmo’s overall form is pretty good with three wins, one draw and one loss over their last five matches played while at the Eleda Stadion they’ve won four and lost one of their last five competitive games, scoring 12 while conceding six.

The away side are also in good nick, they’ve won three and drawn two of their last five games while on their travels have won four and drawn one of their last five fixtures, scoring 10 and conceding just one. Overs has landed in all five of Malmo’s last five on home turf so with both teams in good goal-scoring form then we need to be looking at an Over 2.5 Goals bet here.

6pm: Zurich v Qarabag – Over 2.5 Goals

The away side come into this game in the better form of the pair and hold a goal advantage coming into this tie thanks to a 2-3 win in the first leg last week. The hosts haven’t won any of their last six competitive games, two draws and four losses, but on home soil things are a bit better with two wins, a draw and two losses over their last five played there with Overs and BTTS landing in four of them.

Qarabag have won three, drawn one (winning it on penalties) and lost one over their last five competitive matches while on their travels have won four and lost one, scoring 11 and conceding just two with Overs landing in three of them. With both teams then in mighty goal-scoring form we’re again looking at Over 2.5 Goals here too.

7.30pm: Slovan Bratislava v Ferencvaros – Over 2.5 Goals

TV: OneFootball

Slovan Bratislava caused an upset last week winning the first leg 2-1 thanks to two goals in the closing 10 minutes of the first leg. They’re in decent form of late, winning two, drawing two (winning one in Extra Time) and losing one of their five most previously played games. On home soil they’ve won two and drawn three (losing on in ET) over their last five played there, scoring eight and conceding four with Overs landing in three of those games.

Ferencvaros have won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five competitive fixtures while on their away jaunts have won four and drawn one, scoring 10 and conceding four with Overs recorded in four of those five games. The away side are favourites to win the game but not to qualify and with both also in good goal-scoring form, along with decent Overs stats we’re again looking at at least three goals being scored here and Over 2.5 Goals.

8pm: Olympiakos v Maccabi Haifa – Both Teams to Score

It’s all square at 1-1 here following the first leg and the market have the hosts as odds-on to win here over the 90 minutes and as low as 3/10 to Qualify for the Next Round. Neither side are exactly in great form, the hosts have played eight friendlies since late June, winning just two of them, drawing two and losing four. Over their five most recently played competitive games, however, they’ve won two, drawn two and lost one and on home soil, competitively, have won one, drawn three and lost one, scoring seven and conceding seven with BTTS landing in all five and Overs occurring in two.

Haifa have won two and drawn three (losing two on penalties) of their last five competitive fixtures and away from home have won two, drawn one (losing it on pens) and lost two over their last five, scoring seven and conceding six. The home side should win this on paper but with so many draws occurring for both sides and with matching goals records the best value here is in backing Both Teams To Score.
