5 Europa League picks for Thursday's second legs
We've got your evening accumulator covered with this 21/1 European five-fold from tonight's matches.
Atletico Madrid to beat Lokomotiv Moscow –
Atletico Madrid go into the game with a three-goal advantage, which explains why their price is so generous.
But Diego Simeone’s side are still worth backing. They have won 10 of their last 11 matches in all competitions and are unbeaten in five European away games.
Lokomotiv Moscow are far from formidable at home, having lost at home to Moldovan side FC Sheriff in their second group game.
Sporting to beat Viktoria Plzen –
Sporting come into this match having won six of their last eight in all competitions, including a 2-0 victory in the first leg.
The Portuguese side have won three out of four away from home, losing only to Primeira Liga leaders Porto.
Plzen have lost two of their last three in all competitions and won just one in seven.
Lyon to beat CSKA Moscow –
CSKA have won two of their four away games in Europe this season, but Lyon are a decent pick at this price.
Bruno Genesio’s side have won their last three Europa League matches at the Groupama Stadium and lost just one of their last seven in all competitions.
Given that the visitors have won just one of their last four on the road, this is worth backing.
Zenit to win or draw v Leipzig –
Zenit were beaten 2-1 at Leipzig in the first leg, but should at least avoid defeat this week.
Roberto Mancini’s side came back from a one-goal defeat to beat Celtic 3-0 at home in the previous round and have lost just two of their last 14 at the Krestovsky Stadium.
Leipzig were held by Stuttgart at the weekend and have won just one of their last six in all competitions.
RB Salzburg to win or draw v Dortmund –
Salzburg drew 2-2 with Mattersburg at the weekend and have now gone 30 games without defeat in all competitions.
The Red Bulls are yet to lose on home soil after 20 matches this season and have won 10 of their last 12, including a 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad in the round of 32.
Dortmund lost 2-1 at home in the first leg and have won just one of their last five in all competitions.
