Football tips: Forwards can fire in this 16/1 both teams to score Euro punt

There could be goals galore in the Europa League this week


Thursday night sees the Europa League group stage coming back onto our screens and we’ve gone though all 24 matches to find a Both Teams to Score acca that’s absolutely bursting with value. Read on to find out which matches make our list.

Bayer Leverkusen v Nice (5.55pm) – Both Teams to Score

Leverkusen haven’t started the season nearly as well as they’d have wanted to. They’ve won just one league match so far and have drawn the other three, scoring three and conceding two. At home though their record is better and they’ve scored in all 15 of their previous matches at the BayArena in all competitions.

Nice have started their season quite well, winning four, drawing one and losing two, scoring 10 and conceding nine. On the road, they’ve hit the net in seven out of eight of their most recent matches on their travels. We think both will score here so they’re our first pick.

Lech Poznan v Benfica (5.55pm) – Both Teams to Score

While Poznan don’t have many points on the board in the league so far this season, their matches have seen plenty of goalmouth action. Over their six matches, they’ve scored 12 and conceded 10. Benfica have a similarly good scoring record, netting 13 over their four league matches this campaign, conceding just three.

At home Poznan have scored 13 over their five most recent matches there and Benfica have scored 14 over their five most recent on the road. Hard to see Benfica not winning this one but Poznan should be good for at least one here, so it makes our list.

Dinamo Zagreb v Feyenoord (8.00pm) – Both Teams to Score

Zagreb are in mighty form of late. They’ve lost just one of their last 14 matches and at home they’ve won six out of their last seven. In the league this season they’ve scored 21 goals over their seven matches and have conceded eight, winning six, drawing one and losing none. Feyenoord are also undefeated in their league, having won three and drawn two while scoring 12 and conceding five.

Dinamo have scored at least three goals in all six of their most recent home matches and won’t fear going up against the Dutch side here. Feyenoord though have scored 12 over their five most recent competitive matches and we can see plenty of goals here so it too is making the cut.

Hoffenheim v Crvena Zvezda (8.00pm) – Both Teams to Score

Hoffenheim have won two and lost two of their four league matches thus far, scoring eight and conceding six. Crvena Zvezda’s big advantage here is that their league is already 11 games old, where they’ve won 10 and drawn one, scoring an impressive 35 and conceding just four.

At home Hoffenheim have scored 11 in their five most recent competitive matches while Crvena Zvezda have scored 11 in their five most recent on their travels and scored at least one in all three of their away European matches so far this season. Hoffenheim are massive favourites here but we think Crvena Zvezda could cause a few problems on the night.

Villarreal v Sivasspor (8.00pm) – Both Teams to Score

Villarreal are also strong favourites here. They’ve started the league pretty strongly, winning three, drawing two and losing just one, scoring eight and conceding eight. Sivasspor have won two, drawn one and lost one of their four league matches so far, scoring five and conceding four.

At home Villarreal have scored 12 over their five most recent La Liga matches while Sivasspor have scored eight over their five most recent competitive away matches. We’re getting some nice odds here as the punters think the gulf between the leagues will be too much for the away side but we can see from both Villarreal’s concession stats and Sicasspor’s scoring ones that they should be good for at least one here.
