Europa League Betting Tips
After two nights of Champions League action, it’s time for the Europa League to take centre stage on Thursday night.

Arsenal have been in the Europa League for a few years at this point and have grown accustomed to the competition. After three games in Group B, Arsenal have 9 points and could secure qualification if results go their way tonight. Regardless of results elsewhere, however, they’ll need to pick up 3 points at home to Molde. It’s just three weeks since these sides last met in Norway, with the Gunners running out as 4-1 winners that day. We expect a similar result tonight, and given Arsenal’s constant worries at the back, both teams to score seems a good way to add extra value to our bet. Molde might not be the most threatening attacking side, but Arsenal are always left vulnerable at the back, particularly when they are pushing for 3 points. Mikel Arteta won’t mind that however, as long as 3 points are secured.
Both of these sides have been in the Champions League in recent memory, but tonight, they face each other in the Europa League. Ludogorets are the Bulgarian champions, and although they dominate domestically, they often struggle in Europe. They are without a point in Group J so far, conceding nine goals in 3 games. Tottenham, on the other hand, sit top of the group with only a slip up against Antwerp against their record. Just like in the Premier League, Spurs have been dominant in most of their games so far and will be expecting another easy 3 points as they head to Bulgaria. With attacking threats including Kane, Son, Bale and Bergwijn, we can expect goals whoever Mourinho decides to field. Over 3.5 goals came in during the last meeting between these sides and given Spurs’ attacking threat; it looks another good option today.
Rangers have been one of the biggest surprises across Europe so far this season. Both in the Scottish Premiership and the Europa League, Steven Gerrard has his side playing well above their means, and it looks like they could seriously contend for silverware. They are yet to lose so far this season and have already passed their toughest test when they drew away at Benfica. Rangers will face the European giants again tonight, but will surely be feeling confident. In 10 competitive fixtures at Ibrox this season, Rangers have conceded just once and scored 31 times. Benfica will undoubtedly test them and may grab a goal, but Gerrard will have his team well-drilled enough that they can handle any challenge. At 11/10 just to win, it looks like a price that can’t be missed.
