Europa League 5-fold acca: Opt for European pedigree in pursuit of profit

The group stages start this week and a slew of the competition's stronger sides will be expecting to begin their campaigns with three points

2/9 – Borussia Dortmund to beat Krasnodar

Tournament favourites Dortmund look home bankers in their opening group stage fixture against FC Krasnodar of Russia.

The BVB have been emphatic in the Bundesliga so far under new coach Thomas Tuchel.

Currently top of the table with four wins from four, the 2013 Champions League finalists have scored 15 goals in the league as well as 11 in the qualifying round against FC Odd.

Krasnodar’s only victory in last season’s Europa League group stage was on the final match day against Everton, who had already qualified for the next phase.

11/20 – Napoli to beat Club Brugge

Napoli were beaten in the semi-final last season and are likely to take the competition seriously once again.

The Partenopei’s strong home form – they won all three of their group-stage games last season – should be enough for them to see off their Belgian opposition.

Brugge have proved in their 7-1 aggregate defeat to Manchester United in the Champions League play-off that they are no match for Europe’s elite.

27/20 – Monaco to beat Anderlecht

Monaco are unfortunate to be in this competition after suffering a narrow Champions League play-off exit to Valencia.

Having exceeded expectations last season by reaching the quarter-finals of Europe’s elite club competition last season, the French side should have no trouble making it a bad night for the Belgian side.

Anderlecht disappointed last season by only finishing third in their domestic league, in addition to being eliminated in the Europa League’s round of 32 having dropped out of the Champions League group stages.

23/20 – Villarreal to beat Rapid Vienna

Four of the last six Europa Leagues have been by Spanish sides and there is no doubt that clubs from La Liga take this competition seriously.

Villarreal were defeated in the knock-out stages last season by eventual winners Sevilla and are likely to go well again this time around.

Having made a bright start to their domestic campaign, El Submarino Amarillo have a superior squad and more European experience than their Austrian opponents.

8/13 – Athletic Bilbao to beat Augsburg

Bilbao boast a wealth of European experience and played in last season’s Champions League group stages.

The Los Leones should have too much for their opponents, despite winning only one of their opening three La Liga fixtures.

But that is better than the German outfit, who are making their European debut and are without a win so far this season domestically.
