Thursday’s Europa League Acca – Thu 7th March

After the somewhat sparse pickings we had when putting together our midweek acca bet for Tuesday and in particular Wednesday evening this week, the good news is that we have a lot more action to consider for my Thursday night Europa League accumulator.

The two British sides remaining in the competition, Chelsea and Arsenal face somewhat tricky ties with Chelsea taking on Ukrainians Dynamo Kyiv, while Arsenal are on the road in an earlier kick off as they take on Rennes, who produced a superb 3-1 win over Real Betis in Seville to eliminate the Spanish team in the last round.

I’ve also gone for two other superb games that are early kick off matches with the improving Benfica, who went top of the Portuguese league at the weekend thanks to a 2-1 win over FC Porto in Porto, taking on Dinamo Zagreb, while perhaps the best tie of the round will pit the talented German side Eintracht Frankfurt against Italian giants Inter Milan in what I think is the game to watch on the evening.

It’s good to have a full selection of decent games to look through on Thursday night after the somewhat poorer selection of options on Tuesday and Wednesday and hopefully that means that the four results I have selected below can come to pass and land us a very decent sized winner come the end of the games.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 7th March

Dinamo Zagreb v Benfica – Away Win

After losing the first leg of their Round of 32 tie with Viktoria Plzen by a 2-1 scoreline, Zagreb produced a superb display on home soil to win the home leg 3-0 and make solid progress into the Round of 16. Manager Nenad Bjelica will know though that things get tougher from now on as it proved when they were drawn out of the hat against Benfica. The Portuguese side produced a superb away performance in Turkey to win 2-1 in the first leg and then hung on at home to draw 0-0 and secure their place in the last 16. Since then, they have also beaten FC Porto at home in the Portuguese League to take over top spot in that race and it is clear they are a team that seem to thrive on the road, hence I am backing them to put this inexperienced Zagreb side to the sword here.

Eintracht Frankfurt v Inter Milan – Home Win

After an exciting 2-2 draw in Donetsk, Frankfurt thumped Shakhtar 4-1 at home to move into the Round of 16 where they will face imposing opposition in the shape of Inter Milan. Inter came through comfortably winning both legs against Rapid Vienna, 1-0 in Austria and 4-0 at home to signal their intent to do well in this competition having dropped into it from the Champions League after Christmas. However, I feel the Italians are not the best travellers, especially against top sides and Frankfurt have been outstanding in this competition this season and I feel the German side will have enough to claim a narrow lead to take into the second leg in Italy next week.

Rennes v Arsenal – Draw

Arsenal fans expecting an easy time of it against unfancied French side Rennes will do well to check out their last round victory over Real Betis, where despite drawing 3-3 at home, they earned a superb 3-1 win in Seville to progress at the expense of the Spaniards, who were much the fancied team in that tie. The French side lie a respectable 10th in Ligue 1 and man for man, do not possess Arsenal’s quality, but they showed real fighting spirit and quality of their own against Betis in particular to suggest the Gunners will not have it all their own way in this tie. That said, Arsenal did well to earn a draw at Spurs at the weekend and I think they will be more than happy to get a similar result to take into the second leg at the Emirates next week.

Chelsea v Dynamo Kyiv – Home Win

After their Carabao Cup Final meltdown, Chelsea bounced back to winning ways with wins over Spurs and Fulham in their last two games to ease the pressure a little on Mauricio Sarri. The Italian will now know that this trophy is their only realistic chance of silverware this season, and he will need a solid performance from his team against a tricky Dynamo Kyiv side who came through their Round of 32 tie with Olympiakos 3-2, thanks to a 1-0 home win allied to a fine 2-2 draw in Greece in the first leg. Chelsea despatched Malmo comfortably 5-1 on aggregate to get this far and I am confident they will take a healthy lead into the second leg in Kyiv in a week’s time.
