Thursday’s Acca Tips: 19th September 2019

After the excitement of the opening round of matches in the Champions League across Tuesday and Wednesday, our focus now switches to the games taking place in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Five British teams, Man Utd, Arsenal, Wolves, Celtic and Rangers are competing in the group stages this season but this year’s Europa League boasts a number of teams that would not look out of place in the Champions League and it promises to be an exciting tournament.

A weird quirk of fate sees the four Europa League semifinalists playing each other once again this week, although facing different opponents and in different competitions with Chelsea facing Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday while Arsenal face Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany this week.

The Europa League has been kind to us with our tips over the last few years and I reckon, pound for pound, it has offered me better returns than the Champions League. Let’s hope we can kick off another winning season with this set of tips for Thursday’s big games.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 19th September

Eintracht Frankfurt v Arsenal  – Home Win

These two teams shone in the Europa League last season, Frankfurt reaching the semis before losing to eventual winners Chelsea on penalties, whereas Arsenal were the team well beaten in the final by their London rivals. Frankfurt have seen a number of key players move on since, notably striker Luka Jovic, but they remain a strong side that have started the Bundesliga season well. Arsenal have strengthened their team since and they have also started the Premier League season pretty well and they have produced some fine displays in the Europa League in recent times. However Frankfurt have a superb record at the Commerzbank-Arena and I think they will be the team celebrating the win at the final whistle.

Rennes v Celtic – Home Win

I have to be honest and say that I think the bookies have got the pricing for this game completely wrong. The feeling amongst many seems to be that Celtic stand a decent chance of picking up a win, or at least a point, from this game against the unheralded French side, but I think that is a wildly optimistic look at things. Rennes won the French Cup last season and they have since beaten Paris St Germain in the league too, a rarity in France given PSG’s strength compared to the rest. Rennes also beat Arsenal 3-1 in the Europa League last season on home soil and so at home they are a huge threat and given Celtic have been absolutely humiliated by PSG in recent times in Europe, I don’t fancy the Scottish Champions chances here and given Rennes are much better than even money to win this game, this to me is an easy pick.

Rangers v Feyenoord – Away Win

I feel like I am going to be labelled as trying to upset our Scottish readers a bit here, given my last tip and the fact that I think Rangers are going to find things difficult against an improving and talented Feyenoord side. The Dutch team are unbeaten in eight games going back to last season and they have some very talented players, including Fer and Tapia in midfield and the likes of Narsingh and Berghuis in attack. Rangers showed they are not yet at the top level in Scotland in losing 2-0 to Celtic at Ibrox a short while ago and I think Feyenoord are a much stronger team all round than the Celts. Despite their loud support, I fancy the Dutch side to pick them off on the break and claim the win here.

Wolves v Braga – Home Win

Wolves may not have started the Premier League season with any great pace, but they have been decent in Europe and they knocked out Torino to reach this stage of the tournament, which was a good result, considering that this is their first season in Europe since the 1980/81 season. Braga though are a tricky side and have reached the quarterfinals of this competition a few years back and they finished 4th in the Portuguese league last season behind the big three of Benfica, Porto and Sporting. This won’t be a walkover for Wolves, but I do feel that Nuno Santos knowledge of Portuguese football and the way Wolves play will be enough for them to claim an opening day win here.
