Europa League Matchday 5 Acca – 27th October

Thursday night sees the return of the Europa League with the penultimate set of games in the Group Stages of the tournament likely to see the fates of a good number of teams confirmed.

A top two finish means they progress in the tournament, while if a team cannot finish in the top two, then they will be eliminated from the Europa League.

However, there is an added big incentive to finish first in your group as this puts these teams straight through to the Round of 16, with the teams finishing second in their group forced into a two-legged playoff against one of the third-placed teams that drop into the tournament from the Champions League Group Stage.

So with so many issues to be decided and just a handful of teams already confirmed as qualified after four weeks of action, the next two weeks will be make or break for many teams.

The English duo, Manchester United and Arsenal are sitting pretty. Arsenal are already qualified and avoiding defeat against PSV this week will confirm them as group winners. United need a point or more to qualify but if they want to top this group, they need to win both their remaining games including an away trip to Real Sociedad, which is going to be tough.

I can’t see too many teams deciding to rest too many big stars with such a big positive available for the top teams in each group – but I may be wrong, so let’s hope I’m not as we take a look at the tips I’ve put together for this week.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 27th October

Fenerbahce v Rennes – Draw

Both these teams are already qualified from their group and both come into this game in very good form, so with top spot in the group up for grabs, this game is going to be crucial in deciding which of these two teams finish top of the table. When they met in France, Fenerbahce secured the point with an injury time winner against a Rennes side that were down to ten men at that point. That will burn with Rennes fans who will have felt their team should have won that game. Playing a Turkish team in Turkey is never easy, especially with the partisan home fans, but this is a talented Rennes side with the likes of Joe Rodon, Steve Mandanda and the talented but injury prone Jeremy Doku all quality players. The French side won’t win here, but they should be good enough to claim a point.

PSV Eindhoven v Arsenal – Draw

These two teams met last week in London with the Gunners running out narrow 1-0 winners against a solid looking PSV side. However, with qualification now assured and Arsenal needing just a point in this game to be assured of winning the group, this is a game they will want to get something from so they can rest players for their final game, especially with them going so well in the Premier League. However, PSV showed in London that they are a not a pushover and if they play like that again, then this is going to be a tough game for the Gunners, as such, I am going for Arsenal to drop their first points of the group stage but to still claim top spot in the group with a draw here.

Man Utd v Sheriff Tiraspol – Home Win

Admittedly, this is not the most awe-inspiring prediction of the week as United should win this game comfortably but the way that they have struggled in Europe this season has been notable. Part of that may be Erik Ten Hag resting a number of key men for these games, but even against Omonia Nicosia, both games went right down to the wire against the Cypriots, while their best performance came in the first half in the return leg of this game. With all the noise surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo, this may not be an easy one for United as they would like it to be, but even so it would be a massive surprise if they were not to win this game.

Sturm Graz v Feyenoord – Away Win

These two teams are involves in a four-way tie in their group with Lazio and Midtjylland the other two teams on five points. Therefore, we are now in a two-week playoff situation where the two teams that do best in those two weeks will qualify. Looking at the remaining games, I think Feyenoord may be one of those teams as I fancy them to produce a solid performance in Austria to claim a huge three points here. It probably won’t be a pretty game, but the Dutch side have enough quality to get the job done here.
