Europa League Acca – Matchday 5 – 30th November

This week sees the return to action of European competitions and after the Champions League on Tuesday and Wednesday night, we now turn our attention to Thursday night’s games in the Europa League.

Due to the far more convenient mirroring of the three major European competitions, we are also at Matchday 5 in the Europa League and in what has already been an intriguing competition we have some more big games this week.

In the early kick offs, Brighton travel to Greece to try and avenge their opening night defeat to AEK Athens in what is a crucial game in Group B. Two wins in their last two games have moved Brighton into second spot in the group, a point behind Marseille but three ahead of AEK, so a win or draw here would be a good result for the Seagulls.

Also in the early games are West Ham who can seal a place in the knockout stage with a win over Backa Topola in Serbia.  The Hammers will also want to win to keep ahead of SC Freiburg who are on the same points as the Hammers (9)

The other two British teams are in action in the later games as Rangers face Aris Limassol at Ibrox Park, while Liverpool seek to get back to winning ways in this competition with a home tie against LASK Linz, victory in which will ensure the Reds progress to the knockout phase.

Let’s now take a look at the games I have selected for my Europa League acca this week.

Europa League Bet Analysis: Thursday 30th November

AEK Athens v Brighton – Away Win

After a relatively slow start to their first ever European campaign, Brighton have picked up seven points from the last nine available and have jumped up to second in their group, just a point behind Marseille. They now face the team that beat them at the AMEX in the opening round of games, AEK Athens. The Greek side only picked up one further point from their next three games after the win in England and so their form heading into this game isn’t great. However, what is key for me here is that Brighton got back to winning ways at the weekend with a win on the road Nottingham Forest. That was a big win for Roberto de Zerbi’s team and I think that belief will be the catalyst for them landing the win here too.

Backa Topola v West Ham United – Away Win

Serbian side Backa Topola have only landed one point from their four games so far in this group so West Ham should be confident of getting a positive result here and one that should, in all likelihood ensure that they qualify for the knockout phase of the tournament in the new year. David Moyes men got a timely boost with an away win over Burnley at the weekend, which put an end to a run of somewhat poor results especially in the Premier League. The Hammers form in Europe both this season and last has been exceptional though and they have shone away from home in particular. As such, while this looks a tricky trip on paper, I’d expect West Ham to come through with a win.

Liverpool v LASK Linz – Home Win

Liverpool eased to a win over Linz in their opening game in this group, despite conceding first, a worrying trend that the Reds have shown in their away games all season long in all competitions. However, at Anfield Liverpool have been excellent and are unbeaten at home and have won their two previous Europa League games at Anfield at a canter. I can’t see anything but a repeat performance here to be honest given the quality difference between the two teams. The Reds earned a solid point at Man City at the weekend which will have been a big boost to Klopp’s men and I think the Austrian side could be in for a difficult night at Anfield on Thursday.

Marseille v Ajax – Home Win 

The other game in Brighton’s group could well see Marseille qualify for the next phase if they can land a win, while a draw would also be enough to qualify if Brighton beat or draw with AEK Athens. The French side have been in solid form of late, only losing one of their last eight games and they did the double over AEK home and away in their previous two games in thus group. After a dismal start to the season, Ajax are now unbeaten in their last four Dutch League games, but they did lose home and away to Brighton and despite a draw against these opponents earlier on in the group stages, I would be surprised if they can go to the Velodrome and come away with the win here.
