Dark Thursday autumn nights mean one thing – no not The Apprentice – the Europa League!
Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester, Celtic & Rangers are all in action with the Gunners facing Irish side Dundalk.
And below, you’ll find our Odds Picks for the rest of the UK teams in action.
Our Odds Pick for Antwerp v Spurs – Spurs to win & both teams to score – 15/8 at bet365
Both these teams are in cracking form.
The Belgians have won five on the spin but facing this Spurs side is a step up in class for them and we expect Mourinho’s men to get the job done.
Spurs have been leaky at the back recently though, recording only two clean sheets in their last 11 games so we can see Antwerp getting on the goal sheet.
Our Odds Pick for Lille v Celtic – Lille to win & both teams to score – 13/5 at bet365
Neil Lennon is a man under pressure and this trip to an in-form Lille side could really ramp it up.
The hosts are undefeated in their last six and will be itching to get at a Celtic defence that’s shipped eight goals in their last three matches.
Celtic have scored four in their last two outings though so we can see them bagging at least one consolation goal in France.
Our Odds Pick for Rangers v Lech Poznan – Rangers (-1 goal) – 6/5 at Paddy Power
Rangers are in red-hot form and are the only team in the UK to still be undefeated domestically.
They’re also no slouches when it comes to Europe, ending Standard Liege’s winning home run last week with an absolute worldly by Kemar Roofe.
They should have more than enough class to outdo the Polish side, Poznan, who were spanked 4-2 by Benfica in match day one.
Our Odds Pick for AEK Athens v Leicester – Jamie Vardy to score – 4/5 at Unibet
After back-to-back victories, Leicester will fancy their chances to pick-off Athens and cement their place at the top of Group G.
The Foxes are averaging over two goals a match so far this season with Jamie Vardy bagging six in just five Premier League games.
We expect the Vardy-party to roll into Greece and he looks a great bet to bag in Athens.
