Europa League predictions, betting odds, and tips

Nov. 07, 2019

It has been a busy footballing week beginning with the Champions League clashes on Tuesday and Wednesday and now the Europa League fixtures. The week will even be busier for bookmakers and punters considering the need for Europa League predictions. About 24 Europa League games will be played this week on Thursday apart from the Vitoria de Guimaraes vs Arsenal clash that was scheduled for Wednesday.
The Europa League fixtures are not a walk in the park because teams have to travel long distances to venues they have probably never been before and often reflects in the Europa League results. The Thursday night fixtures are not liked by many teams because players do not get enough time to prepare for their domestic league fixtures in the weekend. It is no surprise then to see most clubs opting to rest their senior players and give youngsters a chance to impress.
Europa League predictions
Europa League fixtures can be difficult to predict given that they bring together teams that are not in the same domestic league. It means that fixtures can comprise clubs that had never met before or met a long time ago. As a result, the head to head statistics may not be available or insignificant. In this case, one has to look at the form of each team in their respective leagues and other relevant team news. If you are wondering why the Europa League betting odds are attractive, it is because of the above-stated dynamics.
1. Astana vs AZ Alkmaar
The first of the Europa League predictions for today is Astana vs AZ. Astana’s mission will be to revenge on AZ for the 6-0 loss in the Netherlands. The hosts have their trouble in the domestic league and will not be concentrating more on this fixture. AZ is the stronger side, and the man to watch will be Dutch youngster Teun Koopmeiners.
Match prediction: AZ wins
Score prediction: 1-2
2. APOEL vs Qarabag
The two teams are not visitors in the European competitions so fans should expect a close encounter. Furthermore, this is the fourth time APOEL and Qarabag are meeting this season. When they last met, the two teams shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw. Since both clubs will be eyeing a spot at the knockout stages of the Europa League, a draw seems like the probable outcome yet again.
Match prediction: Draw
Score prediction: 1-1
3. Basel vs Getafe
The last time these two teams met Basel won by scoring one solitary goal of the game. Getafe will travel with revenge in mind, but the fact that they will be on the road makes things a little complicated for them. Basel is motivated by the fact that a win will ensure they retain the top spot in the standings. An away success should, therefore, be considered.
Match prediction: Getafe wins
Score prediction: 0-1
4. CFR Cluj vs Rennes
CFR Cluj is a hard team to beat and do have a fighting spirit as shown in their last fixture against Rennes where they took three points in a hard-fought 1-0 win. They are number two in Group E and will require the three points to secure their qualification to the group stages. Rennes will miss key players some through suspension, which is why we believe the home team will win.
Match prediction: CFR Cluj wins
Score prediction: 2-1
5. Dudelange vs Sevilla
Sevilla will be on the road in a Europa League match in which they are the favourites due to the quality of their team. In their first encounter, Sevilla won by three goals to nil and will be seeking to maintain their 100 percent record in Group A. even though Dudelange will be at home the best result they can hope for is a draw which will still be an unfortunate result for the visitors.
Match prediction: Sevilla wins
Score prediction: 0-2
6. Copenhagen vs Dynamo Kyiv
It will be a challenging clash, given that both teams are strong sides. The hosts have set their eyes on retaining the top spot in their group but must be aware that the visitors are unbeaten in their last three Europa League games. Their first encounter two weeks ago ended in a 1-1 draw, but this time Copenhagen might prove to be a handful for their opponents.
Match prediction: Copenhagen wins
Score prediction: 1-0
7. Krasnodar vs Trabzonspor
Two weeks ago Krasnodar won 2-0 at Trabzonspor and is likely to continue with the excellent results this week. The visitors will be keen to revenge but have an uphill task to grab the three points from the hosts who aim to overtake Getafe at the second spot in the standings. Since the visitors haven’t had the best form in the Europa League, this season a home win should be considered.
Match prediction: Krasnodar wins
Score prediction: 1-0
8. LASK vs PSV
The two giants meet again following the 0-0 draw encounter they had two weeks ago. PSV hasn’t had the best form lately, and the fact that they failed to impress at home shows that they will struggle to get a positive result away from home. A close encounter should be expected, but the home team will have the upper hand so they should win with ease.
Match prediction: LASK wins
Score prediction : 2-1
9. Lazio vs Celtic
When Lazio and Celtic met two weeks ago, Celtic won by two goals to 1. It saw Lazio drop to number 3 in their group. The hosts will be relying on the likes of Ciro Immobile to get a good result, but the visitors will want to hang on to being number one in the group standings. Given the importance of the fixture to both teams, they will be contented with a draw.
Match prediction: Draw
Score prediction: 1-1
10. Lugano vs Malmo
Lugano will host Malmo at Kybunpark on Thursday. Lugano is yet to taste a win in the competition and should be aiming to turn that around. The visitors have also had turbulent times in their domestic league and will be aiming to give their fans something to smile. Since Lugano will be playing at home, we feel they will rise to the occasion and win this fixture.
Match prediction: Lugano wins
Score prediction: 1-0
11. Rosenborg vs Sporting
Rosenborg hosted Sporting CP at the Lerkendal Stadium on Thursday evening. The hosts were beaten in their first three group stage games and will be hoping for positive results this time around. Sporting CP, on the other hand, won two of their last three games and will be high in confidence when the two sides clash. Sporting CP is the better team and will likely pose challenges for the hosts. An away win should be considered based on the form of the two groups.
Match prediction : Sporting wins
Score prediction: 1-2
12. St Liege vs Frankfurt
The St Liege vs Frankfurt fixture will be anything but exciting. St Liege won their first game in the group stage but went on to lose the next two games to Arsenal and Frankfurt. However, beating them at home will not be a walk in the park for the visitors. At this point, it appears that it is anybody’s game to win which is why both teams will field their best players. Since Frankfurt has done it before they are probably going to win this time again although with a narrow lead.
Match prediction: Frankfurt wins
Score prediction: 0-1
13. Monchengladbach vs AS Roma
Thanks to the Europa League fans get to be amazed by ties such as this one between Monchengladbach and AS Roma. Borussia Monchengladbach will host the game at Stadion Borrusia-Park. The hosts haven’t impressed in the group stages so far, and this will be their opportunity to write a better script. AS Roma is no weak opposition though and will be keen on retaining the top spot going into the knockout stages. With the Europa League fixtures, it is always a close encounter, and for that reason, we predict that sharing the spoils will not be such a bad result for both teams.
Match prediction: Draw
Score prediction: 1-1
14. Braga vs Besiktas
Besiktas will be seeking to spoil Braga’s party given that the hosts are on track to qualify for the knockout stages. With only three games left in the group stages, Braga has the challenge to take home the maximum number of points, and this means that they must win on Thursday. Luckily for them, this fixture finds them at home, making them better placed to win against the visitors who will have to travel for the clash. Besiktas haven’t had the best of seasons and have lost their first league games. Given this form, we believe that the hosts will take all three points this week.
Match prediction: Braga wins
Score prediction: 1-0
15. Espanyol vs Ludogorets
Espanyol has experienced all sorts of problems in the domestic league, and the Europa League appears to be their only hope this season. The Catalan giants won 1-0 against Ludogorets two weeks ago and will be hoping for a similar result this week as well. As things stand, Espanyol is leading in their group table standings and will focus on not losing any points here. Ludogorets are second place in the standings and will play their hearts out to grab something out of this fixture. Espanyol will be without the suspended Javi Lopez, but their opposition shouldn’t be able to cause a lot of problems in his absence.
Match prediction: Draw
Score prediction : 0-0
16. Ferencvaros vs CSKA Moscow
CSKA Moscow travels to Hungary in the backdrop of poor performances in the Europa League campaign this season. The Russian outfit has failed to win even a single game in their first three games of the group stages. They are not likely to proceed to the knockout stage, but they would want to give their fans some performances to remember this season. The hosts might make the mistake of underrating the visitors who are very capable of taking all three points. We predict that the visitors will win this fixture to try and restore their honour.
Match prediction: CSKA Moscow wins
Score prediction : 0-1
17. Feyenoord vs Young Boys
Feyenoord will have the home advantage as they host Young Boys for their Europa League clash on Thursday. The hosts tend to play their best football while playing at home, which is why they are considered as favourites. That said, we have to remember that in their first encounter Young Boys won 2-0 hence the hosts will be on a revenge mission. Young Boys have been performing quite well in their domestic league, but Europa League clashes have tended to go in favour of the home team. As a result, money should be staked on the hosts to emerge victorious this week.
Match prediction: Feyenoord wins
Score prediction: 2-0
18. Manchester United vs Partizan
Manchester United have struggled this season both in the domestic league and the Europa League. The Red Devils registered a hard-fought 1-0 win over Partizan 2 weeks ago, but they will be seeking to be more clinical this time around. Even though Partizan was a better side in that game, they will be on the road this time, and Old Trafford will be a completely different experience for them. The hosts will be focusing on bagging the three points so that they go a step closer to qualifying for the knockout stage. Ole Gunnar will, therefore, be tempted to field a more experienced side capable of winning.
Match prediction: Manchester United wins
Score prediction: 2-1
19. Oleksandriya vs St Etienne
Both Oleksandriya and St Etienne are yet to register a single win in the Europa League this season, and they will be under a lot of pressure to deliver something. The venue of the clash will be the Arena L’viv, but it remains to be seen whether the hosts will capitalize on the home advantage. The most probable result from this fixture will be a draw.
Match prediction: Draw
Score prediction: 0-0
20. Rangers vs Porto
It will be yet another close encounter in the Europa League. Rangers welcome Porto to their home ground with an uphill task to produce something for their loyal supporters. Their first encounter two weeks ago also ended in a draw proving how competitive the Europa League is.
Match prediction: Draw
Score prediction: 1-1
21. Wolfsberger vs Basaksehir
The Europe League has brought mixed reactions for the hosts who beat Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 in their first fixture but then drew one fixture and lost the other. They will be seeking to make amends for their recent form. Since in the last fixture they were beaten 1-0 by Basaksehir, Wolfsberger will be keen on returning the favour at home. Their strategy will probably score an early goal and then being solid in defence for the rest of the game.
Match prediction: Wolfsberger wins
Score prediction : 1-0
22. Wolfsburg vs Gent
Games like this one make Thursday nights to be fun. The colourful Wolfsburg welcome Gent to the Volkswagen Arena in what is anticipated to be a mouthwatering clash. Both teams will probably make it to the knockout stages from their group and so will play their best football to pick the three points to be sure. A showdown looms, but the teams are likely to share the spoils once more like they did two weeks ago.
Match prediction: Draw
Score prediction : 1-1
23. Wolves vs Slovan Bratislava
Wolves have had a good season in the domestic competition as well as the Europa League. The Premier League side won against Slovan Bratislava 2 weeks ago and are likely to replicate the same performance on home soil. Wolves are quite hard to beat at home, and for that reason, we do not see Slovan Bratislava causing any problems, which is why a home win should be considered.
Match prediction: Wolves wins
Score prediction: 2-0
Europa League is a tough competition where players get tested in some of the harshest conditions. The Firefighters had to be stationed outside the Partizan stadium two weeks ago when they were clashing with Manchester United to make sure the stadium was not set on fire. If it is not arson, it is violence, extreme temperatures or even racism. This competition brings the worst of emotions out of players, but those who win must put the feelings aside and focus on their job. Europa League predictions, on the other hand, must examine those emotions and how they affect games.
