Thursday’s Europa League Acca – Thursday 25th October

Chelsea, Arsenal, Rangers and Celtic are back in action in Round 3 of the Europa League Group Stage, and it has been mixed fortunes for the Scottish and English pairings in the tournament so far.

Arsenal and Chelsea both have 100% record after their opening two games, while Rangers have collected four points to sit top of their group too. Celtic however have just the three points after beating Rosenborg, but they were well beaten by Red Bull Salzburg last time out in what is a very tough group G alongside another Red Bull side, Leipzig.

Arsenal face a tough trip to Portugal to face Sporting Lisbon this week, with Chelsea having a seemingly easier date at home to BATE Borisov. Rangers are also on home soil, facing the Russian side Spartak Moscow, while Celtic are on the road in what looks like a very tough trip to Red Bull Leipzig in what could be the pivotal two fixtures in Group G.

I’m hoping that my two sets of tips for the Champions League have proven to be winners over the last couple of nights, but if not let’s hope that this quartet of selections can get the job done for us here. I’m not going to pick Chelsea this week though as the odds on them beating BATE are too short for my liking.

Here’s my selection of games for Thursday’s accumulator in the Europa League.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 25th October

Sporting Lisbon v Arsenal – Away Win

After losing so many key players last season, it was always going to be a tough year for Sporting Lisbon and they currently lie 5th in the Portuguese table after seven games, although they are just four points behind Benfica and Braga at the top of the table. Arsenal are currently fourth after a run of six successive Premier League wins and the Gunners have also added two victories in Europe to that tally. There are still one or two issues defensively for the Gunners, but they are showing real threat in attack and as such, I fancy them to get the job done here against a Sporting Lisbon side that doesn’t score too many goals.

Red Bull Leipzig v Celtic – Home Win

Celtic’s somewhat inconsistent form this season has made for an unusually open start to the domestic season in Scotland and has heaped the pressure on Brendan Rodgers. The manager will know he needs something from this game against a very tough Leipzig side who sit on the same number of points as Celtic after two games. For me though, Red Bull Leipzig are the class team in this group and although they haven’t started the Bundesliga season in great form, I feel they will have too much firepower and quality going forward for Celtic to deal with and as such, I fancy the German side to claim the win here.

Rangers v Spartak Moscow – Home Win

Both these sides have enjoyed similar starts to their domestic season and I think both of them look pretty well matched. Spartak have some decent quality players in their squad but they have been shipping lots of goals of late both domestically and in Europe and I think that will give Rangers, who earned a superb win over Rapid Vienna last time out, a real chance of a win. Steven Gerrard’s team have earned a solid draw in Spain against Villarreal and followed that up that win over Rapid last time out. Another win here, which I think they will get, could put them in pole position to qualify from what is a very tough group.

Villarreal v Rapid Vienna – Home Win

The other game in Rangers group sees Villarreal take on Rapid Vienna and I think this match will finally see Villarreal, who have drawn both their games so far, wake up a little. This is a vastly experienced team in this competition and defensively at least, their performances have been somewhat poor this season. I think Rapid are the weakest of the four teams in this group and as such, I am expecting the Spaniards to claim a narrow win here.
