Europa League 5-fold acca: Big clubs to inspire midweek success

The likes of Dortmund, Fiorentina, Liverpool and Napoli should record comfortable wins in Thursday's second round of group stage fixtures

1/4 – Schalke to beat Asteras Tripolis

Schalke look to be the bankers for Thursday’s round of Europa League games as they host Greek outfit Asteras Tripolis.

The German side have started the new Bundesliga season in great form, winning their last four league games on the bounce without conceding a goal.

They beat APOEL 3-0 in their opening Group K game and should ease past an Asteras side that has never won away from home in the Europa League in nine previous attempts.

8/15 – Borussia Dortmund to beat PAOK Salonika

Dortmund are another Bundesliga side expected to beat Greek opponents when travelling to PAOK Salonika on Thursday.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are unbeaten in their last 17 matches in all competitions and, prior to backto-back league draws, had won 15 in succession.

The home side drew 0-0 with Azerbaijan’s Qabala in their opening Group C game and have won only one of their last four Europa League games.

3/4 – Fiorentina to beat CF Belenenses

Fiorentina travel to Portugal on Thursday looking to bounce back from their opening Group I defeat at home to Basel.

The Italian side, who were in control of that game before going down to 10 men, are third in Serie A after five matches and have won back-to-back games to nil.

Belenenses are 15th in the Primeira Liga after five games and have only won one of their last seven in all competitions. The 6-0 loss to Benfica three weeks ago highlighted their weaknesses.

4/7 – Liverpool to beat Sion

Liverpool host Swiss side Sion on Thursday looking for a much-needed win after drawing 1-1 at Bordeaux in their Group B opener.

Brendan Rodgers is under pressure to get victories, but their 3-2 win over Aston Villa on Saturday sets them up well and they have only lost one of their last 22 home games in the Europa League.

Sion have lost their last two games and haven’t scored in either of those defeats. They may have beaten Rubin Kazan 2-1 in their opening group game but will likely come up short here.

10/11 – Napoli to beat Legia Warszawa

Last year’s semi-finalists Napoli opened their Group D campaign with an emphatic 5-0 win over Club Brugge two weeks ago and take this competition very seriously.

They are unbeaten in six in all competitions and will be buoyant after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Juventus.

Legia Warszawa lost 1-0 to Midtjylland in their opening group game and have failed to win four of their last six in all competitions.
