Europa League Accumulator – 11th March

We are now down to the last 16 in the Europa League with the first leg of the Round of 16 taking place this week. There are some intriguing games, especially involving those with British teams.

There is no bigger clash in this competition than Manchester United faced AC Milan in one of the early games. The Red Devils recent form has tailed off a little with three draws in their last three games, while Milan have also won just one of their last five games. However with Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to face a former club, it should be a hugely intriguing game.

Rangers face the conquerors of Leicester, Slavia Prague, in what is another intriguing tie and one Steven Gerrard’s team will do well not to underestimate. Slavia have picked up some big wins in Europe over the last few years and Rangers will do well to be in this tie come the home leg.

Arsenal face Olympiakos, the team that knocked them out of Europe last season, with Spurs taking on Dinamo Zagreb in what looks, on paper at least, the easiest of the tasks facing the British teams.

Other notable games include Roma v Shakhtar Donetsk and Ajax v Young Boys and we may revisit these games in the second leg depending on how our picks for this set of first leg games go.

Here’s my tips for this week’s Europa League action.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 11th March

Manchester United v AC Milan – Draw

Two of European football’s biggest teams clash at Old Trafford (assuming the game is not moved in the meantime) on Thursday. United’s form at the moment has not been great and having drawn their last three ahead of the Manchester derby at the weekend, they come into this game knowing that AC Milan are also suffering something of a slump in form too with just one win in their last five games. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will face one of his former clubs to add extra spice to the game and given United’s form at home in Europe, I don’t think a home win is a foregone conclusion here and as such, I am backing this one to be a draw – even though I do expect United to win the second leg in Milan.

Slavia Prague v Rangers – Home Win

Slavia Prague are not a team to underestimate. Having bettered Leicester in the last round by a 2-0 aggregate scoreline, they have also beaten some big names in Europe over the last few years. Rangers though have been superb in this competition this season and fully deserved to reach the Round of 16. The Scottish side’s away form has been superb too, but I think this is going to be a huge test for them and I think they are going to struggle a little with some of Prague’s more talented players. This will be close and I did almost plump for the draw, but I think Slavia may just take a one goal lead into the away leg.

Olympiakos v Arsenal – Away Win

Arsenal don’t have great memories of playing Olympiakos after the Greek side eliminated them from Europe back in February coming back from a 1-0 defeat at home to earn a 2-1 win in London to knock Arsenal out on away goals. The Gunners will therefore be well aware of how dangerous they can be and I think in this away leg, which oddly, I feel will suit Arsenal more than the home leg given how they tend to play, I can see the Gunners attack picking off the Greeks on the counter and provided they don’t gift teams goals like they did at the weekend against Burnley, they should do enough to take a narrow lead into the home leg.

Tottenham v Dinamo Zagreb – Home Win

Tottenham have been in much better form of late and with the likes of Dele Alli and Gareth Bale now playing a more prominent role they are certainly a more of an attacking threat in recent weeks. Dinamo Zagreb though are not a team to underestimate as they have won all of their last seven games and they are joint top of the Croatian League table with Osijek. However, Spurs at home in Europe have been excellent and I think with Bale and Alli alongside Son and Kane, plus the likes of Moura and Lamela making contributions from the bench, I would expect the English side to emerge with a decent win here to take into the second leg next week.
