Europa League second qualifying round return legs: Four BTTS picks

The Hammers should make easier work of their opponents this week, but other favourites must overcome tougher tests to ensure progression…

11/10 Both Teams To Score – Birkirkara v West Ham

James Tomkins’ 90th-minute winner sealed a narrow 1-0 victory for Slaven Bilic’s side in the first leg, but the recently-appointed manager will be expecting his players to turn their domination of possession into goals this time around. The Maltese minnows’ prospects of achieving a famous victory are, admittedly, slim. However, a repeat of last week’s tenacious performance – alongside home advantage – could see them frighten their Premier League opponents, who are still working towards match sharpness.   

Evens Both Teams To Score – Differdange v Trabzonspor

Shota Arveladze, the ex-Glasgow Rangers striker and Georgia’s all-time leading goal-scorer, took charge of the Turkish side – another former club – for the first time in last week’s first leg, winning 1-0. He will be eager for his men to kill off the tie as quickly as possible as the spirited side from Luxembourg – who were only formed in 2003 – are not averse to late drama, having sealed their progression from the first qualifying round with a 95th-minute strike.

Evens Both Teams To Score – PAOK Salonika v NK Lokomotiva Zagreb

The Greek side’s ambitions of reaching the Europa League group stages for the third successive season were under serious threat prior to their late away goal in the first leg, which could ultimately prove crucial. There is still much work to do at 2-1 down, however, while it would be no surprise to see their unfancied Croatian opponents, who scored twice against the run of play last week, defend deep before attempting to seal the tie on a counter-attack.

11/10 Both Teams To Score – Hajduk Split v FC Luka Koper

The Slovenian outfit edged out their Croatian neighbours 3-2 in a thrilling first leg, ensuring the tie remains finely poised heading into this week’s reverse fixture. The home side, boosted by two away goals, remain favourites to progress. However, a less-than-perfect defensive record – they are yet to keep a clean sheet in three Europa League ties this season – means a comfortable passage into the third qualifying round is far from certain.
