Thursday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our best football tips into one bite-size betting preview for Thursday's Europa League games. You can back the 24/1 five-fold.
Leicester to beat Braga (17:55)
Leicester are one of four sides in the Europa League who still have a 100 per cent record after three matches.
Brendan Rodgers’ side beat Braga 4-0 at home in the reverse fixture and come into this with six victories in their last seven matches in all competitions.
That defeat aside, Braga are in decent form themselves having won two out of three in their group. At odds-against, however, Leicester represent value here.
Hoffenheim to beat Slovan Liberec & over 2.5 goals (17:55)
Hoffenheim are another side yet to drop a point in the Europa League this season.
There have been five goals in both of their last two games in the competition, while each of their last five have come in over the 2.5 mark.
Slovan Liberec have lost three of their last four, including their last two Europa League games which ended 0-5 and 1-5.
Roma to beat Cluj (20:00)
Roma thumped Cluj 5-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this month and have only dropped two points in their three group games so far.
The Giallorossi have won four on the spin in all competitions and are unbeaten in 10.
Cluj have lost three of their last four matches and are winless in their last three at home.
BTTS in Dundalk v Rapid Vienna (20:00)
The previous edition of this fixture finished 4-3 to Rapid Vienna three weeks ago.
Qualifiers included, BTTS has landed in four of Dundalk’s last five Europa League matches.
Both teams have scored in seven of Rapid Vienna’s last eight in all competitions, so this looks a safe bet.
Rangers to win or draw v Benfica & BTTS (20:00)
Rangers drew 3-3 away to Benfica earlier this month and were a stoppage-time equaliser away from taking all three points.
Steven Gerrard’s side have won 10 out of 10 at Ibrox this season and will get chances against a Benfica defence that is without the suspended Nicolas Otamendi.
The Portuguese side have only failed to score once in 11 games this season, so you would expect them to do their bit here as well.
