The UEL would also come to an end this game week and we are set to see a lot of thrills from teams looking to qualify for the next round of fixtures. A lot has happened this season with a lot of very controversial and unpredictable results from various teams.
We have selected a few of the games today and the best options when looking for betting tips and odds.
Monaco is back among winning ways after a 2-0 win over Angers. Meanwhile, Red Star Belgrade picked up a 2-0 success over Kolubara to continue their amazing set of results in the last few weeks. Monaco has had just one win in the last five matches coming into the game. However, they are likely to be motivated heavily for a victory in this match. The likelihood of being able to qualify for the next round of the Europa League is well within reach and Monaco produced a strong performance in the reverse fixture in September. Despite Red Star Belgrade picking up five consecutive wins in all competitions, their form in Europe is not great when they travel. Bet9ja have 1.64 odds, Paripesa have 1.67 odds and 1xBet have 1.67 odds.
Both Real Sociedad and Manchester United are through to the knockout stages of the Europa League but have the chance to top the group, which will impact their route to the final. United are currently on an eight-game unbeaten run dating back to their loss against Man City a month ago. In that time, the Red Devils won six of the eight games played. By contrast, Real Sociedad has lost two of their last three games. Of course, people will be quick to point out that Sociedad won the reverse fixture. What we’d stress here is that United are a much more confident side now but, more importantly, Real Sociedad knows they can lose this match and still top the group. With that in mind, they are unlikely to go gung-ho to win the match and that cagey approach is likely to remain even if they fall behind. Bet9ja have 2.24 odds, Paripesa have 2.27 odds and 1xBet have 2.27 odds.
The hosts have won nine of their past 11 games overall. On Sunday, they thrashed Nottingham Forest 5-0 to make up for their defeat to Eindhoven. Since that triumph, Arsenal has kept four clean sheets in their last six games, including three in their last four at the Emirates Stadium. During that latter stretch, only Liverpool has managed to get past their defense. Support the home team to win given the opponents’ offensive struggles and the significant possibility that Arteta will select a powerful squad to lead Arsenal to victory. Backing Arsenal to win here is a fine selection and we can certainly see the Gunners winning this like they did the last time. Bet9ja have 1.13 odds, Paripesa have 1.16 odds and 1xBet have 1.16 odds.
Sheriff won 2-1 over Dacia-Buiucani in the domestic league after suffering back-to-back defeats. In the meantime, Omonia Nicosia’s woes persisted as the squad lost to Real Sociedad in the most recent Europa League match, but they did manage to defeat Anorthosis 2-0 in the domestic league. With the squad failing to even earn a point after five games, Omonia Nicosia has been by far the worst team in the group. There is, however, a remote possibility that you may pass Sheriff and claim the final Europa Conference League play-off position. However, Sheriff was able to easily defeat Omonia Nicosia in the return leg back in September, and they are also very difficult to defeat at home. Bet9ja have 1.93 odds, Paripesa have 1.98 odds and 1xBet have 1.98 odds.
Qarabag ended up picking a 4-0 win over Shamakhi to mark the bounce back from the recent loss to Nantes in the Europa League. Freiburg continue to display excellent form and the team was able to beat Schalke 2-0 in the recent league match, but they ended up drawing 1-1 with Olympiacos in the last European game. Freiburg continues to be very strong going forward and the team has only failed to score once in the last nine matches in all competitions. As a result, there has been a sharp uptick in the number of games with over 2.5 goals. Qarabag has been able to hit three goals in four out of the last five games at home. Bet9ja have 1.75 odds, Paripesa have 1.85 odds and 1xBet have 1.85 odds.
After losing to OB by a score of 2-1, Midtjylland has now lost consecutive games in all competitions. This defeat comes only a few days after losing to Lazio by the same margin. After improving on their recent performance, Strum Graz defeated Feyenoord 1-0 before defeating Reid 2-1 away from home. In both of their friendly and competitive matches, Midtjylland and Strum Graz have failed to score more than 2.5 goals. Midtjylland’s strength has been its ability to create opportunities despite not being able to enjoy possession as it was against Lazio in the most recent game. Additionally, Strum Graz is coming off a respectable attacking showing against Feyenoord in the most recent encounter. Bet9ja have 1.78 odds, Paripesa have 1.88 odds and 1xBet have 1.88 odds.
Trabzonspor and Ferencvaros will play their Europa League group encounter at Senol Gunes Spor Kompleksi. As both sides attempt to advance to the knockout stages, this will be the final group game. After defeating Sivasspor 1-0 in the domestic league, Trabzonspor went on to lose 2-1 to Red Star Belgrade in the most recent Europa League match. Monaco held Ferencvaros to a 1-1 draw at home while the squad defeated Zalaegerszegi 2-1 in the domestic league. We are expecting an intense match-up with goals especially from the away side today. Both sides have scored in their previous four leagues and UEL games with a total of five goals scored in the first leg of this fixture. Bet9ja have 1.66 odds, Paripesa have 1.79 odds and 1xBet have 1.79 odds.
Lech Poznan will take to the pitch with visiting rivals Villarreal at Stadion Miejski in the Europa Conference League fixture on Thursday. The Yellow Submarines are one of the favorites to lift the Conference League at the end of the season. They might have failed to qualify for the Europa or the Champions League, as they had to be content with a seventh-place finish the last season in Laliga. Lech has been performing poorly in the last few home matches. Villarreal will have the advantage as the hosts head into this fixture having lost their last two home fixtures. A minimum of two goals can be expected in this game from an offensive side consisting of Luis Morales. With so many goals conceded in the reverse fixture, and the recent defensive slump, expect Villarreal to leak at least one from this Lech side. Bet9ja have 1.82 odds, Paripesa have 1.90 odds and 1xBet have 1.90 odds.
Anytime Goal scorers
Sergej Milinković-Savić (G5, A7) creating for Lazio. The Serbian international will be keen to stamp his authority on this game especially as he will miss the Derby Della Capitale this weekend through suspension following a run of four bookings from his last five appearances. He seems the right choice here for the Lazio fixture as we expect a lot of goals from that game today. Bet9ja have 4.25 odds while Paripesa have 4.00 odds.
The striker is leading the line in this season’s competition with the most goal contributions as he has 6 G/A already in the group stage. He was on point during the last timeout against Arsenal but had two of his goals canceled and could only contribute with two assists. He would be on the score sheet today against a side that couldn’t contain him last time. He bagged an equalizer the last time he faced this opponent. Bet9ja have 2.75 odds while Paripesa have 2.50 odds.
Luiz Henrique has proven crucial to Betis’ early qualification, making goal contributions in each of their last three European victories (G2, A2). Betis should have an easy win here again against a side that has had no wins this season in this competition. We can expect him to be instrumental once again in his side’s victory. Bet9ja have 3.00 odds while Paripesa have 3.30 odds.
The England forward is still his side’s top scorer in this competition with two goals already. He would be given a nod to start as Arteta would want to rest Gabriel Jesus for the London Derby at the weekend. Nketiah has impressed this season with little game time for this Arsenal squad and could be vital for Arsenal to overcome their loss at the hands of PSV. Bet9ja have 1.90 odds while Paripesa have 1.80 odds
Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
