5.45pm: Sheriff v Man Utd – BTTS, No Draw

TV: BT Sport 2

Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United are very short odds to take the victory here in Group E against their Moldovan opponents. Indeed the odds have even been shortening since they opened for United to win but Sheriff have been steadily making a name for themselves as giant-killers in European competition.

Over recent seasons they’ve beaten Real Madrid in Madrid and beat Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk as well. Indeed, their European record is worth mentioning here, of their recent 14 games in continental competition they’ve only lost three over 90 minutes.

The hosts have scored in all but one of their last 10 on home soil in all competitions and here’s a stat for you; the Red Devils have scored in all 15 of their most recent away games in European competition. Both teams should score then, but we can squeeze some more value out of this one here because Draws are rarely seen when these sides play.

Of the home side’s last five games only one ended level and they share the same stat on home soil. For United, they’ve drawn none of their last five fixtures and none over their five on their travels. We’re getting some mighty value here for a Both Teams To Score, No Draw bet here.

5.45pm: Gent v Shamrock Rovers – Both Teams to Score

TV: BT Sport 3

It’s level pegging between all four sides in Group F of the Conference League as both games ended 0-0 last week. Gent are eight games into their domestic season and have won four, drawn two and lost two while Rovers currently top the Premier Division on 59 points after 28 games where they’ve lost just five league games all season.

The hosts have won two of their last five in all competitions, drawing one and losing two, scoring five and conceding four. On home turf they share the same results but have scored six and conceded six too with Over 2.5 Goals landing in two and Both Teams To Score in three.

The Dubliners have won two, drawn two (winning one in Extra Time) and lost one of their last five fixtures while away from home have won just one, drawn two (winning one in ET) and lost two, scoring four and conceding seven. The hosts have only kept two clean sheets over their last eight home games so with both teams showing similar stats we have to go with the value here in backing Both Teams To Score.

8pm: RFS v Hearts – Both Teams to Score

TV: BT Sport 1

Excuse our Latvian here but you’ve got to love a team called Riga School of Football, at least that’s what we think it translates as. Will they teach Hearts a lesson? They certainly did themselves proud in their fixture away to Fiorentina last week, rescuing a point with a late equaliser in the dying stages.

They’re a decent side and have lost none of their last 10 fixtures in all competitions, winning five and drawing five (winning one on penalties). At home they’ve won two and drawn three, scoring a very healthy 13 while conceding five.

Hearts are in pretty bad form, they’ve won just one of their last five fixtures, losing all four of the others, scoring just three goals (all in the same game) while conceding nine. Away from home things are pretty much just as bad for Robbie Neilson’s side, drawing one and losing four, scoring three and conceding eight.

The question then is, will Hearts score? The hosts have conceded in all five of their previous ties in the competition and in five of their last seven on home soil too, thanks to that leaky defence, and with the away side scoring in two of their four away games this season, the value is in siding with Both Teams To Score.

8pm: Silkeborg v West Ham – West Ham Win & BTTS

TV: BT Sport 1

West Ham come into their Conference League Group B match against Danish side Silkeborg as short-odds favourites. The Hammers are in good form now too after a somewhat lacklustre start and have won three of their last five fixtures, drawing one and losing one while away from home this season have won two and lost two.

The hosts have won just one of their last five matches in all competitions, drawing one and losing three but on home turf have fared better with three wins, one draw and one loss over their last five played there, scoring eight and conceding four.

While that home form looks decent the fact is this is a Premier League team on the up against a Danish Superliga side who’ve won just one of their last five and we only see one winner here. However, West Ham don’t keep too many clean sheets and have only kept two over their last seven in European competition so we see the hosts drawing some blood here. West Ham to Win & Both Teams To Score has the value.
