Europa League Round of 16 Treble
16 teams are back in action in the Europa League and there are plenty of intriguing matches to look forward to. With the Champions League sides now involved and some of the weaker sides dropping out, it’s hard to say that any match won’t be a good watch in the round of 16. Bet UK take a look at 3 matches in the first legs, with a tip for each match combining for a 26/1* Europa League treble.

Over 3.5 Goals in Eintracht Frankfurt v Inter Milan - 5/2*
Eintracht Frankfurt have quietly become one of the most exciting teams to watch in Europe this season. Frankfurt’s front 3 of Luka Jovic, Sebastian Haller and Ante Rebic are amongst the most potent in Europe, scoring 48 goals between them so far this season. It’s not just an exciting front 3 that makes Frankfurt a must watch. Their defence is known to be slightly leaky so if there's anything their games can guarantee, it’s goals. Although Inter might be without Mauro Icardi after yet another scandal for the Argentine, they still have goals in the team. Youngster Lautaro Martinez has stepped up to the plate and Radja Nainggolan has finally started performing for Inter, providing a threat from midfield. Whatever the result may be, we can look forward to goals in this one.
Arsenal To Win And Both To Score v Stade Rennes - 27/10*
Unai Emery is a Europa League specialist and will be expecting to advance to the quarter finals on his way to a 4th Europa League win. Stade Rennes might not look like a formidable opponent for the Gunners, but they have some quality throughout the squad. Hatem Ben Arfa, Clement Grenier and M’baye Niang are all performing at their best after disappointing spells throughout Europe. Ben Arfa in particular has been showing glimpses of being back to his best, which could inspire Rennes attack. As good as Rennes have been going forward, their defence has been suspect. In their Round of 32 tie against Real Betis, they drew 3-3, despite being 3-1 up at half time. This will be what Arsenal look to take advantage of and we expect them to win in France.
Napoli To Win and Over 2.5 Goals v RB Salzburg - 11/10*
Napoli were one of the sides that have dropped down from the Champions League, although they can look back and think it could have been very different. A draw against lowly Red Star Belgrade and a last minute equaliser away at PSG kept Napoli in 3rd, still level on points with Liverpool. It’s clear that if Napoli can compete in one of the hardest groups in the Champions League, they should have no issues in the Europa League. In their round of 32 tie, they won 5-1 on aggregate, whilst still resting their top goalscorer. Manager Carlo Ancelotti will know exactly how to handle this and will want the tie over before the second leg. Expect Napoli to win and gain an uncatchable lead before they head on the trip to Salzburg.
