Thursday Europa League Acca
I have gone to get something here: a match effect + BTTS doublecheck!
Predictably, I have whacked Rangers into this one, who’ve been a trustworthy BTTS pick since Steven Gerrard shot over.
Rangers procured two magnificent BTTS successes against Midtjylland to reach this point, and considering they have developed a well-deserved standing of a negative who score and concede a lot, their fixture at Legia Warsaw seems to be a solid selection in this marketplace.
Legia look a poor side–particularly after seeing his home game against Atromitos from the last round end goalless–while I visit Gerrard’s guys turning the Polish ensemble over Thursday, the odds of a house goal being scored (bearing in mind we have seen 23 goals over the duration of the last five matches) are fairly large.
Rangers to win and both groups to score looks a bet that is solid at 22/5.
My second choice is for Gent to beat Rijeka with both teams scoring.
Rijeka conquer Aberdeen 2-0 twice within the span of their last qualifying tie, but the Belgian outfit will establish a much sterner test — I don’t Rijeka passing in this first leg.
Gent finished 5th at the Belgian top division last season, but of the 10 home games that they won, eight were after both groups scored.
The hosts have pedigree in this competition and should beat Rijeka in this first legbut recent history indicates both teams will locate net on the way.
