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 matches in the Europa League. You can back the 25/1 five-fold.
Leicester to beat AEK Athens (17:55)
Leicester were convincing winners on Matchday 1 as they beat Zorya 3-0 and followed that with a 1-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday.
That result maintained their 100 per cent record away from the King Power Stadium this season.
AEK were thumped 3-0 at Braga last Thursday, meaning they have lost seven European group games on the spin.
Lille to beat Celtic (17:55)
Celtic have lost two and drawn one of their last three matches in all competitions.
They have also won just three of their last 23 European group games on the road – a run that stretches back to 2012.
Lille are unbeaten after nine games in all competitions this season and have won their last three at home.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Antwerp v Tottenham (17:55)
There have been three or more goals in seven of Tottenham’s 11 games in all competitions.
BTTS, meanwhile, has landed in eight, including three of their four games in Europe this term.
This bet would have been a winner in eight of Antwerp’s 11 matches in all competitions this season, including their Europa League opener against Ludogorets.
BTTS in Nice v Hapoel Beer Sheva (20:00)
Nice were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Lille on Sunday, meaning both teams have scored in each of their last four matches.
The French side were thumped 6-2 at Bayer Leverkusen on Matchday 1 and this game promises to be another exciting one.
Hapoel have only failed to score once in their last eight, so should do their bit too.
Roma to beat CSKA Sofia & BTTS (20:00)
Roma’s 3-3 draw with AC Milan on Monday evening was the fourth time in five matches in all competitions that BTTS has landed.
The Giallorossi have won three of the last four of those matches, including a 2-1 victory at Young Boys last week.
Both teams have scored in seven of CSKA’s last eight matches.
