Thursday Betting Guide: Our writers' 5 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Thursday's Europa League games.
CFR Cluj to beat Celtic & under 4.5 goals (17:55)
Cluj have won nine consecutive home matches.
That includes a 2-1 win over Lazio and 1-0 victory over Rennes in this competition, while none of the last seven have featured over 4.5 goals.
The hosts need a positive result to qualify from this group, while Celtic – who won a gruelling Scottish League Cup final against Rangers on Sunday – have nothing to play for.
Qarabag to beat Dudelange & over 2.5 goals (17:55)
Dudelange lost the reverse fixture against Qarabag 4-1, before losing their next three Europa League games 3-0, 2-5 and 0-2.
They have conceded at least twice in seven of their last nine away games in this competition, a run dating back to August 2018.
Qarabag have scored at least twice in nine of their last 13 home matches, winning eight of them.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Standard Liege v Arsenal (17:55)
This bet has landed in six of Standard Liege’s last eight matches, including two of their last three in this competition.
Michel Preud’homme’s side have scored 29 goals in their last 13 home games.
BTTS & over 2.5 has landed in all of Arsenal’s last five games, while there have been at least three goals in four of their five Europa League matches.
BTTS & over 2.5 goals in Manchester United v AZ Alkmaar (20:00)
This has been a winning bet in all of Manchester United’s last six matches, including the 2-1 defeat to Astana a fortnight ago.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have scored in all of their 11 home matches this season, but kept just four clean sheets.
AZ Alkmaar have scored 32 goals in their last 10 matches, including at least three in their last four away games.
Edin Dzeko to score and Roma to beat Wolfsberger (20:00)
Dzeko was left on the bench for Roma’s 0-0 draw at Inter last weekend, so should return to the starting XI for this game.
The 33-year-old has scored in two of his last three starts, including in his last Europa League game against Istanbul Besaksehir.
Wolfsberger have lost three of their four games since losing manager Gerhard Struber to Barnsley.
