Europa League Betting Tips: Can Leicester, Tottenham & Rangers clinch top spot?
Odds and preview for tonight’s European fixtures
After two days of action-packed Champions League games, we could be in for more drama as the Europa League group stage wraps up tonight.
There’s a packed fixture list across the continent and we’ve previewed the games involving the five British teams ahead of kick-off.
Arsenal have found points hard to come by in the Premier League, but they’re 1/7 to win and become the only side in either the Champions League or Europa League to finish the group stage with a perfect record. The hosts are 22/1 to record a famous win.
Despite fielding an inexperienced side in Europe, the Gunners have won each of their last four European games by a three-goal margin. They’re 11/10 to win with a +2 Handicap against a Dundalk side that’s yet to pick up a point.
Our traders have a repeat of the 3-0 scoreline from the Emirates at 11/2. Eddie Nketiah got the opener that night and he’s 16/5 to do so again here. Nicolas Pepe is 7/5 to score, with young forward Folarin Balogun at 5/6.
Rangers just need to match Benfica’s result against Standard Liege to ensure they remain top of Group D tonight. Steven Gerrard will hope his side don’t rue blowing a two-goal advantage in both games against As Águias.
They’re 4/7 to return from Poland with three points, 13/4 says the score finishes level and the hosts are 9/2 to pick up their second win of the group stage.
Each of Rangers’ last three European games has seen both sides score at least two goals. Rangers and Both Teams to Score is 9/5, while it’s 13/10 for Over 3.5 Goals.
Alfred Morelos and Kemar Roofe are both 4/1 joint favourites to break the deadlock, or 13/10 apiece to score anytime. James Tavernier is also 12/5 to continue his impressive goalscoring form.
Poznan’s best hope looks to be Mikael Ishak, who’s 21/10 to get a goal.
Leicester are level with Braga on 10 points, though they’ll clinch top spot in Group G if they match the Portuguese side’s result against Zorya Luhansk.
The Foxes are 1/3 to get the win against an AEK side with nothing to play for. It’s 21/5 for a draw or 17/2 for a shock away win.
Brendan Rodgers is likely to stick with the side that has featured in Europe so far this season, with the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho, Hamza Choudhury and Cengiz Under all starting. Wilfred Ndidi should also step up his return to full fitness here.
Leicester have kept clean sheets in both home games during the group stage so far. They’re 5/4 to deliver another win to nil.
Iheanacho is 23/10 to get the first goal or 8/13 to score anytime. Under is 17/10 to hit the back of the net, while Jamie Vardy is 4/9 to bag a goal if he features at any point.
Both sides have already qualified for the last 32, though top spot in Group J is still up for grabs. Only a win will do for Tottenham, who are 1/3 favourites.
Antwerp are 8/1 outsiders, though Spurs can’t afford to take them lightly after their 1-0 defeat in Belgium. A draw (21/5) would see the visitors go through as group winners.
The reverse fixture was a rarity among Tottenham’s Europa League outings this term – including qualifiers, their other seven European games have seen at least three goals. Tottenham and Over 3.5 Goals is going for 17/10.
As for who scores the goals, expect Jose Mourinho to ring the changes. Carlos Vinicius is 16/5 to score first or 19/20 to score anytime. Dele Alli is 9/4 to grab a goal.
Antwerp’s Lior Refaelov scored the winner at the Bosuilstadion – he’s 10/3 to net again this time.
It’s been a miserable European campaign for Celtic, who’ve picked up just one point from five games so far. They’re 11/5 to restore some pride, though Lille are 23/20 favourites to get the win that would secure top spot.
Neil Lennon’s side have let in 17 goals during the group stage, more than any other team. Lille and Over 2.5 Goals is a 2/1 shot.
Mohamed Elyounoussi got both of Celtic’s goals in the 2-2 draw between these sides in October. He’s 13/5 to score in this one.
Yusuf Yazici is the competition’s leading goalscorer with six goals this term. He’s 15/8 to add to his tally, with Jonathan David the same price in the Anytime Goalscorer market.
