Europa League Acca Tip – Thursday 30th September

If it is Champions League week on Tuesday and Wednesday then that means Thursday sees us back with Matchday 2 of the new Europa League, and there are some big games coming up in this new and slimmed down competition from previous years.

The four British teams in the competition had mixed starts with Rangers and Celtic both going down to defeats, Leicester were held by a strong Napoli side but West Ham produced an excellent performance in Croatia to beat Dinamo Zagreb to get their campaign off to a positive start.

I’ve backed the Hammers again this week as you’ll see in my tips below as I think they are developing into a very talented team.

The slimmer look to the Europa League has increased the quality of the teams competing at this stage of the tournament and that is to the competitions benefit.  Games like Fenerbahce v Olympiakos, Real Sociedad v Monaco, Celtic v Bayer Leverkusen and Lazio v Lokomotiv Moscow would not look out of place in the Champions League.

It is also a tournament that has been kind to me in the past for my accumulator tips and it was the competition that I landed by final win of last season in, so I am hoping that we can get this campaign off to a good start with the following four tips below.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 30th September

Real Sociedad v AS Monaco – Home Win

Sociedad picked up a point away to PSV in their opener, which was not a bad result at all given how well the Dutch side have started their season, while Monaco were narrow winners over Austrian side Sturm Graz at home. The side from the principality dominated that game but struggled to convert their possession into chances and away from home against a much better opponent, I think they are going to find this very tough. Sociedad have some outstanding attacking players in the likes of Oyarzabal, Isak and Januzaj and they are unbeaten since the first game of the season in La Liga. I think they will earn a good win here.

Sparta Prague v Rangers – Home Win

Sparta Prague dominated their game with Brondby on Matchday 1 but could not turn that into a win over the Danes on the road. However at home, they should be more potent and with Rangers losing their opener to Lyon 2-0 at Ibrox, the pressure is really on Steven Gerrard’s side here.  This team defeated Celtic 4-1 at home and also on the road last season which shows that they are a decent team at this level and with Rangers start to the season being much less impressive than last year, I think that the home side are going to come away with a narrow victory here.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 15th September

Celtic v Bayer Leverkusen – Away Win

Celtic battled hard but eventually lost 4-3 to Real Betis in Spain in their opening game, while Leverkusen came from an early goal down to beat Ferencvaros 2-1. The German side can score plenty of goals, but they also ship a few too, rather like Celtic, but I think they have the advantage here in two key areas. Firstly, I think they have much more experience in the top European competitions than Celtic do at the moment and secondly, I feel that they are a side who are much better on the counter attack. With Celtic needing to win this game, I think that plays into Leverkusen’s hands and as such, I am backing them to pick up a second win the group here at Celtic’s expense.

West Ham v Rapid Vienna – Home Win

After a very solid opening victory in Croatia over Zagreb, West Ham come into this home game with Rapid Vienna in a very strong position.  Rapid Vienna were defeated 1-0 by Genk at home on the opening day, conceding the winning goal deep into injury time, but in truth it was a game that Genk deserved to win. Vienna are dangerous, but I think they are a side that struggles when they make the move from domestic football in Austria to the European level and I expect West Ham to have by far the dominant amount of possession in this game and I would be hugely surprised if they do not pick up a very confident win to make it two wins from two.
