Europe’s top-tier competitions are already edging nearer to a close. Four teams have already progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League and another four will do the same today in the Europa League. With a lot at stake and action to go with, we bring you the likely betting tips to go with from all of the games lying in wait today.
Villareal came out winners as predicted in the first leg with a 1 nil win over opponents Dinamo Zagreb. Today, they face each other again as both sides seek to progress. Villareal recently lost their league tie but would not be fazed by that glitch as their form in Europe has been impressive despite their inconsistency in La Liga. Villareal might not get the win easy but they are sure to win today and go through. Bet9ja has 1.50 odds, Bet365 has 1.45 odds and 1xBet has 1.52 odds.
Manchester United’s Ole and his side have so far silenced their critics by going this far in the competition. As it stands, they look like the sure favourites to win it. A 2 nil win last time out would be enough to see them through. With the 3-1 win over Tottenham at the weekend, spirits are surely high and they will take this morale into the away game to Granada. They are the inevitable winners of this tie here today. Bet9ja has 1.46 odds, Bet365 has 1.44 odds and 1xBet has 1.28 odds.
Arsenal to Qualify
Arsenal seemed to leave it late in the first leg tie between Slavia last time out and this saw them settle sadly for a 1 all draw. The Gunners would be looking to take this tie and we have tipped them to qualify for the next round. Despite conceding an away goal, they still look the side to go through. They have had a torrid season but their recent goal-scoring exploits would mean they can easily overcome the single goal deficit. Doing that would boost their chances of qualification and that’s a very likely option here today. Bet9ja has 1.42 odds, Bet365 has 1.40 odds and 1xBet has 1.41 odds.
Over 2.5 Goals
The Ajax vs Roma match ended in Roma winning the game very late in the match and getting the edge with two away goals scored. Both sides know the only opportunity to move on to the next round is to win and we don’t expect a cagy match. They would both start off the blocks and seek an early goal which would play right into this selection here. Bet9ja has 1.48 odds, Bet365 has 1.50 odds and 1xBet has 1.52 odds.
Arsenal clearly had chances in the first leg tie to score more goals but failed to do so due to lack of precision in the attack. They look to be better up front with the goals they record against Sheffield United over the weekend. Praha on the other hand are not a side to shy away from a goal-scoring contest. They have recorded the greatest number of goals in a league this season by any club in Europe already. Both sides will surely find the back of the net and possibly even better the goal tally of last week. Bet9ja has 1.78 odds, Bet365 has 1.80 odds and 1xBet has 1.89 odds.
Manchester United were just a goal shy of making the tally more than two goals in our last week’s selection. The first leg showed an attacking brilliance from both sides as they tried various ways to record goals but United were the only one to record any goals and the victory. Today, both sides would be looking to win qualification to the next round, making this a more beneficial pick. Bet9ja has 1.92 odds, Bet365 has 2.00 odds and 1xBet has 2.03 odds.
After scoring the first goal in their two-nil away win to Granada in the first leg of the tie, he proved his worth to his team once again. Manchester United would be looking to win once again and sail through to the next round and Rashford seems to be the best man for the job. A quiet outing in their away win against Tottenham wouldn’t harm his form as we expect him to score yet again today. Bet9ja have 2.50 odds while Bet365 have 2.25.
The Frenchman found the back of the net twice in his side’s three-nil mauling of bottom league side Sheffield United at the weekend. Although he couldn’t convert the chances created for him in the first leg, his brace over the weekend must have provided a needed boost in confidence ahead of today’s tie. We expect him to score today and take Arsenal to the next round. Bet9ja have 2.25 odds while Bet365 have 2.10.
Tadic has once again failed to score in a game for Ajax. Although he had an assist, he could have bagged a goal to save our goal-scorer selection last time out. The first leg of this tie saw him miss a penalty that could have seen them take a step closer to the next round. We can count on his experience to put that bad time out of his mind and continue scoring as we have known before. Bet9ja have 3.75 odds while Bet365 have 2.25.
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.
