Europa League Acca: Wed 5th & Thu 6th August

We were so close to finishing the Premier League season on a high, three of our last four tips came in bang on the money and all we needed was for Tottenham to snatch a win at Palace for what would have been a huge profit, but unfortunately, Spurs could not hold onto the lead and once again our acca missed by a whisker due to one result.

That has been the story of the season on many occasions but the positive is that we are getting so close on so many games that surely the luck has to turn at some point and we will land that win sooner, rather than later.

This week sees the return of European action starting with the Europa League, there are six Round of 16 second leg ties being played across Europe on Wednesday and Thursday nights, plus two one off Round of 16 ties being played at neutral venues in Germany (Inter v Getafe and Sevilla v AS Roma).

The remainder of the competition will then be played in Germany at neutral venues over one leg ties, with five day gaps between games until the final is played later on in the month.

After this round the competition does tidy up a little when we reach the quarterfinal stage, but let’s take a look at the tips we have backed for the Europa League games on Wednesday and Thursday.

Bet Analysis: Wed 5th August

Shakhtar Donetsk (2) v (1) Vfl Wolfsburg – Home Win

A very good performance in Germany has set Shakhtar Donetsk up to make it into the next round of the competition. A 2-1 win means the Ukrainian side, who were the domestic champions once again by 23 points, are now in pole position to make it into the next phase of the tournament. Wolfsburg finished seventh in the Bundesliga and will compete in the Europa League again next season but their form has been erratic all season long and losing key home games has been an achilles heel of theirs for some time. I can’t see the in form Donetsk, who have not lost any of their games since the season restarted, making a mess of things from here and I am backing them to land a win at home to make the quarterfinals.

Bet Analysis: Thu 6th August

Bayer Leverkusen (3) v (1) Rangers – Away Win

This is perhaps the riskiest bet I have made all season in this series of tips but I do have good reasons for backing Rangers here. Leverkusen last played in the DFB Pokal Cup Final back at the start of July and while they have been training in the four weeks since, I don’t feel they will be match sharp. Rangers, on the other hand, have had a pre-season and just kicked off their campaign last weekend, so their fitness levels should be much higher. There’s no doubt Leverkusen bossed the first game, but some of Rangers best performances in Europe have come on the road. I have a sneaky feeling this tie is not over and that the Glasgow side could make this a very uncomfortable night for the Germans.

Sevilla v AS Roma – Draw

Sevilla finished fourth in La Liga and now take on the team that finished 5th in Serie A. Both teams have been in great form ahead of their one-off tie, which is being played at the neutral MSV Stadium in Duisburg. Sevilla are the most successful Europa League team in history with five wins, but Roma’s form of late has been very good and I can’t see this game being decided in normal time. As such, I have a feeling we may need extra time and even penalties to decide the winner and as such, I think backing the draw at the 90 minute mark is a smart move.

Wolves (1) v (1) Olympiakos – Home Win

Despite playing from the 28th minute with 10 men in the first leg, due to Ruben Semedo’s sending off, Olympiakos took the lead against Wolves at home but were pegged back by Pedro Neto’s equaliser. Semedo will miss this second leg game through suspension but I do expect the Greek Champions to pose Wolves a real threat, as they did with Arsenal in an earlier round when knocking the Gunners out of the tournament. That said, I feel Wolves have more than enough quality in attack and midfield to get the job done here and I think they will progress into the next round.
