Europa League Matchday 4 Acca – Thursday 9th September

Well, last time out, I got the right four results for my selections, but unfortunately I needed to switch picks for the Rangers and West Ham games in order to have landed a win!

But fear not, we are back this week with the Fourth Group Stage matchday in the Europa League, and it is an opportunity for some teams to qualify for the knockout phase after just four games, while others may find themselves eliminated from the competition and dropping down into the Europa Conference League.

These games are the return fixtures from those played on Matchday 3, so the teams will be familiar with each other from those games. That can make these games somewhat trickier to predict as managers have a much better angle on the tactics their opponents are likely to employ against them.

Liverpool are one of the teams that could qualify with a win as they face a trip to the south of France to take on Toulouse. West Ham will want revenge after their loss to Olympiakos last time out ruined their 100% record in the competition, while Brighton travel to the Netherlands to take on a struggling Ajax.

We also have Rangers at home to Sparta Prague after the Gers earned a solid point on the road in Czechia last time out and a win here could put them right back in contention in this group with two games to go.

Only Liverpool, AS Roma and Bayer Leverkusen have 100% records in the Europa League after their first three games, which does tend to show how close these games have been in the last couple of years.

Let’s now take a look at my four tips for this week’s Europa League accumulator.

Europa League Bet Analysis: Thursday 9th November

Ajax v Brighton – Draw

Brighton broke their winless record in this competition with a win over Ajax at the AMEX on Matchday 3 and they will be hoping that they can back that up with another win here. Ajax early season form has been awful, but they did end a long losing streak with a win over Volendam in their last Eredivisie game. However, it is fair to say Brighton will be a much tougher nut to crack for the Dutch whose young and inexperienced team have been found out against stronger opponents this season. That said, Brighton’s form of late has not been great and they do not look like a very confident team. As such, I think this one is likely to end in a draw.

Toulouse v Liverpool – Away Win

Liverpool were easy 5-1 winners when the two teams met at Anfield and although the French side did cause the Reds a couple of problems on the counter attack, they never really looked capable of picking up something from this game. They may feel that at home, they will have a chance to do that, but Liverpool are playing very well at the moment and Jurgen Klopp will want to get qualification into the knockout phase sorted as quickly as possible to ensure that he can rest players over the busier December period. I do think Toulouse will be much tougher to beat on their home ground, but I am still confident Liverpool’s class will take them to three points here.

Rangers v Sparta Prague – Home Win

Rangers did very well last time out to earn a draw against a Sparta team that have been in good form domestically and that point undid some of the damage from Rangers’ surprise loss in Cyprus to Aris Limassol on Matchday 2. However, to fully realise that benefit, a win is needed here at Ibrox and I think this time Rangers can do it. Philippe Clement has hit the ground running and is unbeaten as Rangers manager so far and he seems to have made a big impact at the club already. A win here for the home side would certainly endear him to Rangers fans even more and at home and with the support of a partisan home crowd, I think Rangers can claim the victory here.

West Ham v Olympiakos – Home Win 

West Ham battled hard in Greece but ultimately saw their winning start in this competition come to an end thanks to a 2-1 defeat. The Hammers though have bounced back well since that defeat earning a good win over Arsenal in midweek last week. Olympiakos are a very good side and can call on the likes of loanees Daniel Podence (from Wolves) Ola Solbakken (from Roma) and Gustavo Scarpa (from Nottingham Forest) as well as the likes of Stevan Jovetic. Certainly, the Greek side are going to be a danger to West Ham on the break so the Hammers will have to defend well. However, if they can beat Arsenal at home, then I think they should be able to pick up the three points against the Greek side too.
