Thursday’s Acca Tip – Thursday 12th December

Last time out, it was only Arsenal that stopped us landing a massive win with my Europa League accumulator, a frustrating turn of events, especially as the Gunners had won so emphatically in Germany in the opening round of fixtures.

However, it does go to show that we are pretty much close to the mark with these tips and have been for some time, we just need that one final result to tip our way and we’ll be celebrating the next big acca win soon I am sure.

This selection of games in the Europa League is a tricky one. A number of teams that are already qualified, such as Man Utd and Celtic, may well rest players for these games ahead of a busy period, which could well have a major influence on the result. As such, I’ve tried to pick games that I know have something riding on them, although there are a couple of selections that I felt were just too good a value not to add to the coupon.

Here’s my selection of tips for Thursday’s Europa League action.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 12th December

CFR Cluj v Celtic – Home Win

With Celtic assured of their place in the next round of the competition, and already confirmed as the group winners, there is not a lot riding on this game in Romania and I would not be surprised if Neil Lennon decides to rest a number of key men ahead of a busy run of games for his team domestically. Cluj have already caused Celtic a headache this season, knocking them out of the Champions League qualifier, but on home soil and against a Celtic side that is likely to be markedly weaker opponents than the teams that they have already faced on three times this season, I expect the Romanian side to come through, especially with them needing at least a point to secure their place in the next round of the competition ahead of Lazio.

Man Utd v AZ Alkmaar – Draw

I’ve plumped for the game with UNited and Alkmaar as despite the fact we know that there is not a lot riding on this game in terms of qualifying, both teams have already reached the next phase, the top position in the group and the potential of an easier draw in the round of 32 is at stake. I do think both sides may field weaker teams, with United the more likely to do so ahead of a very busy Christmas period for the Red Devils. However, with home advantage I do expect any team that Solskjaer puts out to be more than capable of picking up a result here. Alkmaar though are a decent side as they showed in their wins over Astana and their draw with United on Matchday 2. I think this one, with qualification not on the line, will also end all square.

Rangers v Young Boys – Home Win

Group G involving these two teams plus Porto and Feyenoord could be the most exciting as we head into the final round of games with it still being possible for any of the four teams to qualify for the next phase. A win or draw for Rangers would put them through, while Young Boys must win to be sure of progressing, although a draw could be enough depending on the result of the Porto v Feyenoord game. I think that may be immaterial however as I think at home Rangers are very tough to beat and I can see Steven Gerrard’s side picking up the win to take them into the next round of the tournament.

Wolves v Besiktas – Home Win

Wolves will know that they and Braga, who they shared an entertaining draw with in their last game, have already made it through to the next round thanks to Besiktas beating Slovan Bratislava last time out. However, a win for Wolves here and defeat or a draw for Braga in Bratislava could see Wolves finish top of the group and I can see Nuno Santo’s team going hard to land that. Wolves have been in good form in this tournament since their opening round defeat and they were well worthy winners in Turkey when the two sides met on Matchday 2. I expect the English side to come away with another good win here.
