Europa League Matchday 3 Acca – Thursday 6th October

The second set of tips for the week is here and these focus on Thursday night’s games in the Europa League and, to be brutally honest, it wasn’t the best selection of games to try and make a decent value accumulator bet from.

The problem was there were a fair few obvious home wins between stronger teams and much weaker opponents, combined with some real 50/50 games where the stats seem to show that both teams are very evenly matched and you could make a realistic case for a home or away win or the draw.

What that means is that this weeks selection of games for the Europa League features some teams that I haven’t covered at all, some that I cover only rarely and perhaps just one or two that I tend to feature at least once or maybe twice a season.

I am hoping that I have performed well with my Champions League tips this week but if not, then there is always this little selection of games to perhaps land us a win.

The two British teams involved, Arsenal and Manchester United have two winnable games, with Arsenal taking on Bodo Glimt at the Emirates Stadium, while Manchester United travel to Cyprus to take on Omonia Nicosia in what should be a winnable and important game for them after losing heavily to Manchester City at the weekend.

Here’s my tips for this weekend’s Europa League games.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 6th October

Malmo v Union Berlin – Draw

Two teams that don’t feature too often in these tips. Malmo probably have much the greater experienced of European competition, but Union Berlin have been one of the surprise packages in German football over the last couple of years. They remain at the top of the Bundesliga despite losing their first game of the season this past weekend to Eintracht Frankfurt. Malmo are further into their season and lie fourth in the Swedish Allsvenskan table, seven points behind leaders BK Hacken and Djurgardens. They were just beaten by Union St Gilloise a couple of weeks back and they are experienced at this level. I can’t see Berlin being beaten here but nor can I see them winning and I think that a draw is certainly the option to back here.

Braga v Union Saint Gilloise – Home Win

This is the other game in the group that also has Malmo and Union Berlin in it and it is Braga that leads the way in the group, but only on goal difference from their opponents tonight. Union Saint Gilloise have stormed through the leagues in Belgium and almost won the Belgian league title last year in a huge surprise and they have taken to European football like a team well used to this level of competition. Braga though are a strong side, perhaps not the match of Benfica, Sporting or FC Porto in their native Portugal, they have proven to be a tricky team to beat in Europe and with home advantage at their backs and not having conceded a goal in this competition as yet, I am backing them to land a narrow win.

Midtjylland v Feyenoord – Draw

Danish side Midtjylland produced one of the biggest shocks in the last round of games when they smashed Serie A side Lazi0 5-1 at home. It was a week for big wins in this group as Feyenoord did even better, crushing Sturm Graz 6-0, two results which left every team in Group F with one win and one defeat from their two games. That symmetry may continue this week at least for these two teams as I think that huge win over Lazio will have given the Danish side something to go for here and while Feyenoord are not as good on the road as they are at home, I would expect them to do just enough to earn a share of the spoils here.

AS Roma v Real Betis – Home Win

Having lost to Ludogorets on the opening matchday of fixtures, AS Roma need to win this one against Real Betis in order to close the gap on their Spanish counterparts, who have a 100% winning record from their two games. Betis are a tricky team to beat at times and they have some talented players and plenty of experience too. However, you would expect a Jose Mourinho team, at home, and with the passionate support of their fans behind them to do more than enough to claim the win they need if they are to stand any chance of topping this group. This may be a close call but I am backing Roma to do enough to land the win.
