Europa League (Part 2)

Red Bull Salzburg
I've been having a long hard look at the late kick offs over the last hour or so and they mostly make me nervous. There just seem to be too many unknowns around.

The two teams I fancied are Villareal and Liverpool to notch up home wins. However both have domestic issues with a real need to get maximum points to get into those Champions League spots.

They both seem to have adopted the same approach putting full strength teams out in the 1st leg but where will the minds of those players be?

I'm going to avoid the Villareal v Red Bull Salzburg game completely. As for Liverpool, well Besiktas can be dangerous and the price for Liverpool is lower than I would have it. I fancy them for the win but not at that price. I doubt it'll be a repeat of the 8-0 in 2007 but I do fancy goals and the odds on Over 1.5 look very generous to me. Both teams can score tonight I feel.

Liverpool v Besiktas: Back Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.35 for £200 (Potential Profit: £66.85)

Good Luck and Happy Punting!!!

Europa League is back!!

Wolfsburg - The home of the VW Beetle
The second tier of European football is back with the addition of the Champions League dropouts. For many this is when the competition starts properly. Some teams are already left with this as their only chance of glory or entry into next year's Champions League. Others are torn between the lure of a successful cup run and the domestic battle ahead.

It usually makes for some interesting line ups and results.

In the 6pm kick offs there is one stand out bet for me and that is Wolfsburg to beat Sporting Lisbon at home. The german team are comfortable in second place in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich probably too far ahead of them and a gap below to 3rd. So for them Champions League next year looks secure yet the title is gone. That means they have all to play for in this. Sporting are in 3rd and whilst the title may be beyond them they will be wanting to finish second but also have Braga in 4th place just over their shoulder.

Back Wolfsburg to Win @ 1.66 for £200 (Potential Profit: £126.06)

That's my only bet in the earlier kick offs. Will post selections for layer matches shortly.

Good luck and Happy Punting!
