Europa League Tips – Thursday 14th February

We’ve had some very unfortunate sets of results over the last few selections, with my last four sets of picks all seeing three winners and one leg let me down, so despite hitting 12 out of 16 results bang on the money, I still don’t have another winner to add to the last a few weeks ago.

Still, that is a sensational success rate and I believe that sooner rather than later I will land that fourfold bet and hit another massive profit and with love in the air on St Valentine’s Day, maybe the god of love will throw us a bit of luck.

Thursday sees the return of the Europa League with three British teams in Action. Arsenal face BATE Borisov, Celtic face a tough first leg against Valencia while Chelsea, fresh from being mauled 6-0 by Manchester City at the weekend, head to Malmo in Sweden licking their wounds.

It is a high quality competition this year in the Europa League with some very talented sides now in the competition including Lazio, Napoli, Benfica, Inter Milan, Eintracht Frankfurt, Shakhtar Donetsk, Sporting Lisbon, Villarreal and the club with undoubtedly the best record in this tournament in recent years, Sevilla.

Here’s hoping we can end St Valentine’s Day with a bonus accumulator win thanks to this quartet of lovely tips.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 14th February

BATE Borisov v Arsenal – Away Win

Arsenal have met BATE Borisov before in European competition and earned a 4-2 win in Belarus, before they thumped the same opponents 6-0 at the Etihad. That was last season and in truth, I can’t see anything other than a similar result over the two legs happening here. Unai Emery’s team may have their faults but they have been exposed against better quality opponents than BATE and against these lesser teams, Arsenal have generally been very strong. Emery has also played strong teams in Europe in the main and I think with little for Arsenal to aim for across the remainder of the season in terms of silverware, he will have a real focus on winning this trophy, as he has in the past with Sevilla. That will begin with a solid win here.

Lazio v Sevilla – Draw

This is one of the ties of the round as Sevilla, one of the Europa League’s most successful teams, face a tricky trip to Serie A side Lazio. Lazio do flatter to deceive a little at times and for every great performance they put together, they seem to have one or more lacklustre ones thrown into the mix. Also in Europe, they have suffered some poor results and seem ill at ease compared to playing in Serie A. Sevilla in contrast have excelled in Europe and they have matched that with better La Liga performances this season too. On paper the teams look well matched and I can see this one ending in a draw, but I reckon Sevilla will eventually be the team to go through from the second leg.

Celtic v Valencia – Away Win

I really don’t like backing against British teams in Europe, especially at home, but despite enjoying fervent support, I feel Celtic have been found out at European level many times in the past and I can only see that continuing here against a Valencia side that have beaten Manchester United already this season and who rarely lose a game, drawing plenty in La Liga. My reason for backing Valencia here is that Celtic are so susceptible against good teams on the counter attack, something they don’t see much of in Scotland, but which is prevalent across Europe and given the quality Valencia have, even if Celtic do score a goal, I think the Spaniards will grab one more.

Malmo v Chelsea – Away Win

After the debacle at the Etihad at the weekend, which must see Mauricio Sarri’s position at the club under serious threat, Chelsea fans will be demanding a reaction against Malmo in the Europa League. Sarri will likely make several changes for this game and that may work in their favour against a side that are still very much in pre-season training for the start of the Swedish season. I can’t see Chelsea winning by a cricket score, but they should do more than enough to make the second leg in London a comfortable one.
