Europa League betting tips
Legia Warsaw vs Europa
The first leg surprisingly finished goalless, but the Poles are expected to come good on home territory and should win by two goals or more at 8/15 in the Europa League odds.
The Gibraltarians actually took more shots than their opponents on their artificial surface at Victoria Stadium, but on grass Legia are expected to have too much class for the visitors.
Earlier in the week, Legia Warsaw smashed newly-promoted second tier side Radomiak Radom 5-0 so will have the bit between their teeth for the second leg.
CS Universitatea vs Sabayil
The Romanians ran out 3-2 winners in Azerbaijan and are 1/4 to win the second leg, but the next of our Europa League betting tips is for both teams to score at 27/20.
Both teams had found the net by the 33rd minute at the Bayil Stadium where the visitors had 22 shots compared with four from the hosts who scored with their only two shots on target.
Sabayil have struggled in front of goal during their pre-season friendlies, but both teams scored in eight of their last nine games in the Azer top flight, so competitive football seems to bring out the best in them.
FK RFS vs NK Olimpija Ljubljana
A thrilling finale in which both teams scored twice in the final 10 minutes gave the visitors a 3-2 victory and they are generously priced at 29/10 in the Europa League odds to complete the double on Thursday.
The Latvians were outshot 28-8 on the night but they got the goals that mattered and with Olimpija Ljubljana probably needing to win by two goals, gaps will inevitably appear at some stage.
Zalgiris vs Honved
Zalgiris lost the first leg 3-1 in Hungary but the next of our Europa League predictions is the hosts to win the return at 13/10.
The Lithuanians have won their last five matches in the top flight to sit two points behind leaders Suduva and should have had more to show from their trip to Budapest in which they outshot their opponents 18-6.
Six of those were on target, so with a bit more luck they can win the second leg in Vilnius.
