After landing three correct results out of five in last week's Europa League acca, Will Rook is back with his best football tips for Thursday's Europa League qualifiers.


RB Leipzig to beat Universitatea Craiova (17:30) –

Leipzig eased to a 3-1 victory in the home leg last week and last season’s quarter-finalists should finish the job on Thursday.

Universitatea Craiova were eliminated at the same stage of the tournament last term, after losing both home and away to AC Milan.

Olympiakos to beat Lucerne (18:30) –

Lucerne have had a tough start to the season, losing four of their opening five matches in all competitions.

The Swiss side lost 4-0 away to Olympiakos last week and have won just one of their last six home games in Europe.

Partizan Belgrade to beat Nordsjaelland (19:30) –

Partizan won the away leg of this tie 2-1 and their impressive home record means another victory looks likely in the return fixture.

The Serbian cup winners are unbeaten in their last 20 matches in all competitions at Partizan Stadium – a sequence that included two victories in the group stage of last season’s Europa League.

Burnley to beat Istanbul Basaksehir (19:45) –

Burnley did well to come away from Istanbul with a 0-0 draw last week and can take advantage of their visitors’ poor away record in Europe.

Basaksehir have won just one away game in eight in Europe, against Bulgarian side Ludogorets last season.

So they are unlikely to get anything out of the Clarets, who have lost just two of their last eight competitive matches.

Rosenborg to beat Cork City (19:45) –

Cork City have never progressed beyond this round of the Europa League and, having lost 2-0 at home last week, are unlikely to do so this season.

The Irish side have lost six of their last nine European away games and should easily be seen off by Rosenborg, who have lost just one of their last 12 at home in all competitions.
