Espanyol vs Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton crushed Espanyol in the first leg of the Europa League round of 32 by 4-0 at Molineux Stadium. The Spanish side will be looking to have their revenge when they host the Santo Espirito side on Thursday. The Premier League side proved their worth in the first leg, with a thrilling four goals lead this has made their trip to the Catalonia side much easier. Regardless of which players will be used against the home team away win should still be considered.
Los Periquitos, on the other hand, have no other choice but to go all out as their fans will be expecting them to give them an interesting game even if they will lose at the end. They stand very little chance of qualification and so we expect them to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s Europa League return leg games. A player to watch for the away team is Diogo Jota who scored a hat-trick in the first leg.
Gent vs Roma
Roma did well to win the first leg of the Europa League game against Gent but they will be looking to defend their victory in the Europa League return legs. The Italians travel to the GHELAMCO-arena to face Gent and we hope for a much better result. The Belgians are eager to overcome the deficit in front of their home fans, but beating the Roma wont an easy task.
In any case a lively contest is expected in the Thursday night Europa League game, our cards will be placed on goals betting style. Considering the attacking potential of the two teams, we believe that goals will be much in the game so we will be bet on over 2.5 goals.
Arsenal vs Olympiakos
Arsenal has been very impressive since the arrival of new manager Mikel Arteta, the manager has manager to help arsenal find their winning mentality back. A spot in the Europa League last 16 will be at stake as they host Olympiakos in their Emirates Stadium. Olympiakos dominated in the first leg of the game but still lost to Arsenal.
Alexandre Lacazette’s late goal gave them the lead. The Gunners aim to defend their slim lead in the Europa League return legs game, and we predict that they are going to advance to the last 16 round. Arsenal’s defender Sokratis picked up an injury in the last 1-0 win over Olympiakos, but we expect him to fit for the clash.
The Thrylos are tough to beat at home, but given their poor away record in European competitions, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. You should bear in mind that Arsenal registered seven wins in the previous eight home games in the Europa League. A man to watch is the skipper Aubameyeng who has been scoring for fun since the start of the season.
Inter Milan vs Ludogorets
Inter Milan used what seemed to be their second team in the first leg of the Europa League game but still won we are sure they will still win the day. The Nerazzurri are with one foot in the last 16 already and we are sure they will not want to lose in front of their home fans. Anyways considering the fact that they will be playing their domestic league rival Juventus straight win should not be considered. We advise to bet on goals and over 1.5 won’t be a bad bet.
The Bulgarian champions have no other choice but to go all-out attack against Inter, which will open them up for Lukaku and Co. to penetrate. Seeing that Inter are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but seeing that they have a tougher match in the weekend we predict that there will goals in the match in respective of who is going to win.
Manchester United vs Club Brugge
Manchester United fans will be looking to pay back after suffering harsh treatment from Club Brugge fans in the first leg. The first leg ended 1-1 giving United an edge already in the Europa League return leg game. Manchester United will be looking to book their place in the Europa League last 16 round as they take on the Belgians at their legendary Old Trafford. The Red Devils are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at the home in Europa League.
Even though Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba remain in the recovery room, we are putting our money on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. Club Brugge will be playing against United without Nigerian star who scored the opener for them in the first leg Denis Junior Emmanuel. A man to watch in the home team will be French international Anthony Martial who scored in the first leg game.
