Swansea to beat Sheffield Wednesday (19:45)
Sheffield Wednesday were beaten 1-0 at Preston last weekend, ending a six-game losing streak at Deepdale for their hosts.

Ajax to beat Midtjylland & over 2.5 goals (20:00)
Ajax beat Heracles 5-0 on Sunday to extend their winning streak to four matches in all competitions and their unbeaten run to six.

Midtjylland have lost three games out of three in the group stage, conceding at least twice in all of them.
