Europa League Acca – Matchday 6 – 14th December

After the final set of Champions League group stage games on Tuesday and Wednesday we now have the same situation in the Europa League and Europa Conference League and once again, we have perused the former to find the best pick of matches this week for our final Europa League Group Stage acca.

As is the case in the Champions League, we already know some of the teams that have qualified for the next stage of the tournament and in the Europa League, finishing top of the group means that you miss the awkward playoff round ahead of the Round of 16, where the 2nd place teams in the Group Stage take on one of the 8 third placed teams from the Champions League Group Stages.

Let’s have a look now at which teams have qualified for the next phase of the competition, with those that have confirmed top spot in the group, and a bye from the playoff round, shown in bold.

  • Group A – West Ham, SC Freiburg
  • Group B – Marseille, Brighton
  • Group C – TBC
  • Group D – Atalanta, Sporting Lisbon
  • Group ELiverpool
  • Group F – Rennes, Villarreal
  • Group G – Slavia Prague, AS Roma
  • Group HBayer Leverkusen

As you can see, only two teams are confirmed as seeded in the draw and thus will get a bye for the playoff round, Liverpool and Bayer Leverkusen, so with that plus the final qualifying spots and who finishes third to drop into the Conference League all still to be decided, it looks like being a busy week.

And here’s my tips for it!

Europa League Bet Analysis: Thursday 14th December

Union St Gilloise v Liverpool – Away Win

It’s nailed on that Jurgen Klopp will continue to give his regular first team players a rest and play some of the fringe players in the squad, but the Reds have done that throughout this qualifying phase and as such, I can’t see the team being any weaker here than it has been throughout the tournament. Union St Gilloise need a win and also for Toulouse to lose their game by enough so that USG overturn the -2 goal difference they have. The Belgian side though didn’t really trouble Liverpool a great deal at Anfield in their first game against the Reds and it would be hard to see them copying Toulouse and landing an incredible win here. As such, I am going for even a second-string Liverpool Xi to be good enough to take the win here.

Ajax v AEK Athens – Home Win

The Dutch side have had a torrid time of it so far this season, but after a change of manager things have started to improve. It’s been too late to save their Europa League season,but they could secure third place in the group with a win over AEK Athens. The Greek side have picked up just one more point following their opening day win over Brighton and they struggled against Marseille. That one point came from their home game against an Ajax side that were badly out of sorts. I feel this new side is looking much stronger and as such, I would expect them to win this game and with it clinch that third spot in the group to earn a shot in the Europa Conference League in the New Year.

Brighton v Marseille – Home Win

After a shock defeat in their opener against AEK Athens, Brighton have since won three and drawn one of their four games earning a draw away to Marseille in their second game of the tournament. Now they get a chance to not only beat the French side at home, but also secure top spot in the group and miss the playoff round of the competition. After a sticky spell of draws the Seagulls have got back to winning ways of late and while Marseille will not be a pushover, the French side have some very talented players and have not yet been beaten in this competition as yet, I still feel that on their day Brighton have the beating of any team and as such, I am backing them to earn the win here.

West Ham v SC Freiburg – Home Win 

West Ham face a similar situation to Brighton in that a win or a draw over Freiburg would be enough for them to finish top of their group. Both the Hammers and Freiburg are already assured of a place in the knockout phase in the New Year, it is simply a question of who will qualify as the first seed and who will finish second in the group. After a huge 2-1 win over Tottenham in midweek West Ham will be in fantastic spirits ahead of this game against a tricky German side who have been a regular inside the top eight in the Bundesliga for the last couple of seasons. This will be a tough one but I am backing West Ham to come out on top.
