Gers can bounce back in Europa League

218

Thursday sees the Europa League take centre stage and as ever there is plenty of value to discover for both the British and continental teams.

Arsenal to win to zero @ 5/4

Unai Emery continues to mould his Arsenal side and Saturday’s 2-0 win over Watford was arguably their most complete performance under the Spaniard.

A trip to Baku to face Azeri champions Qarabag carries plenty of threat, with the Horsemen demonstrating their progress with draws home and away against Atletico Madrid in last season’s Champions League.

Inevitably, they have made a strong start to the season at home but lack real top-level quality, as seen in their 2-0 defeat to Sporting Lisbon in their Group E opener.

The Gunners seem to be finding their feet and although changes are likely to their starting XI, they should have no issues in the Caucasus.

Chelsea also look set for an easy night when MOL Vidi head to Stamford Bridge and more ambitious punters should look for something like the over 4.5 goals market at 7/4.

Rangers to win @ 1/1

Celtic may have a tough task ahead of them in Salzburg but Old Firm rivals Rangers should take the points against their own Austrian opposition, with Rapid Vienna heading to Ibrox.

The Gers were defeated 1-0 by Livingston at the weekend, much to the chagrin of boss Steven Gerrard, but the former England captain will be confident his side can bounce back against a team lacking form.

Rapid have failed to win any of their last three and despite an opening Group G victory against Spartak Moscow, they could struggle against the Gers.

Sevilla to win @ 13/10

The last pick of Thursday’s fixtures is for Sevilla to claim a triumph away at Krasnodar.

Russia remains a notoriously tough place for visiting sides to produce their best form but Los Rojiblancos are on a roll, making it four wins in a row thanks to Saturday’s triumph at Eibar.

They have scored 17 goals in that spell but face a Krasnodar side who themselves have won their last six.

A look at the teams on paper suggests Sevilla should have too much and Pablo Machin’s men are rightly the favourites heading into the fixture.
