Europa League Game Week 3 betting preview


Milan are among the favourites to win the 2018/19 Europa League and the Rossoneri are bidding to continue their 100% record in the competition on Thursday, with bet365 offering 1.91 that they overcome Real Betis at the San Siro Stadium.

Betis are 4.00 to win the game and boast an unbeaten start after four points from their first two matches, with bet365 trading 3.50 that this clash ends all square which would keep the two sides in pole position to qualify.

Celtic head to Germany as rank outsiders and you can get 7.50 that they beat an RB Leipzig side who were surprisingly beaten at home to Red Bull Salzburg in their first Europa League group game although they did then win at Rosenborg and can be backed at 1.40 for the win.

Arsenal head to Portugal after making a winning start in this competition and the Gunners are 2.20 favourites to beat a Sporting Lisbon side who are also two from two after wins over Qarabag and Vorskla. The home side are a 3.30 chance and might profit from facing a weakened side.

Chelsea are clearly going to rest players for the visit of BATE, although the Blues are still no bigger than 1.10 to overcome a Borisov side who did win away to MOL Vidi before losing heavily at home to PAOK. The draw is a 9.00 chance if you think the visitors can somehow wangle a point.

Marseille clash with Lazio in one of the more attractive ties of the round, with both sides fancied to make the last 32 stage of the competition, although it’s the French team who are 1.85 with bet365 to beat their Rome rivals.

Lazio were heavily beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt in their most recent encounter and they’re now 3.80 to bounce back to winning ways with a victory in this clash.

Rangers go up against Spartak Moscow and are now respected by the layers after a strong start in the competition, with the Scottish side chalked up at 2.14 with bet365 to overcome their Russian opponents.

Steven Gerrard’s side have already landed a 2-2 draw away to Villarreal before a 3-1 victory against Rapid Wien, although the visitors did enjoy an exciting 3-3 draw against Spanish opponents and they are 3.25 to claim the spoils at Ibrox.

Sevilla are the highest-ranked team currently in the competition, with the Spanish team looking like accumulator material at 1.12 with bet365 to beat an Akhisar Belediye team who could be overrun by opponents who are very strong on home soil.
