Europa League Tips: August 10th 2020
Romelu Lukaku has been in fantastic form this season and he is the one to watch from a goal scorer betting viewpoint.
The Belgium striker scored his 30th goal of the 2019/20 season in Inter’s 2-0 win over Getafe on Wednesday evening and is our 888 prediction to open the scoring in this contest.
Leverkusen are no slouches though and the Bundesliga side will be quietly confident of springing a shock in Lisbon on Monday night. Write the German outfit off at your peril…
Bayer were hardly on top form when beating Rangers on Thursday night but that contest will have given the Bundesliga side a chance to shake the cobwebs off after a few months off.
Man United had a five-goal cushion going into the second leg with LASK Linz and the Red Devils could be accused of complacency in the return fixture at Old Trafford.
Short of ideas in the early exchanges, Anthony Martial came off the bench to bail United out with a late winner.
Meanwhile, Copenhagen were excellent against Istanbul Basaksehir but you won’t find too many people backing the Danish side to advance to the next round.
Even the most ardent Copenhagen fan would struggle to make a viable 888 sport prediction for the Danish Superliga side on Monday night.
Solskjaer will revert back to a full-strength line-up for Monday’s clash and United should prove too strong for their opponents.
The 8/13 available for United to lead at half-time is one of our top sports betting tips of the day.
At the time of writing, you can back our 888 tips as a Monday night double at 5/2.
Europa League Tips: August 11th 2020
The first of our Thursday 888 predictions looks at Shakhtar Donetsk and FC Basel.
These are two teams often seen in the knockout stages of European competition, but they haven’t met in a competitive match since 2009.
Basel have kept it tight in the Europa League, keeping three consecutive clean sheets.
Shakhtar are the more attacking of the two, and booked their place in the last eight with three goals in four minutes against Wolfsburg.
With some notable absentees, Basel are Europa League betting underdogs here.
Shakhtar will name a similar side to the one that saw off Wolfsburg, and with 14 goals in their last five matches, should be able to create enough chances against this Basel side. Shakhtar to win is the 888 pick at 17/20.
Wolves and Sevilla are two of the online football betting favourites to win the Europa League.
Sevilla are one of the form sides in Europe, having gone 18 unbeaten since February. They have only lost once in their last 14 Europa League outings.
Wolves saw off Olympiakos in the last round, but it was tense in the second leg.
Chance creation is the greatest concern for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, and they face a Sevilla team that has conceded only once in its last six matches.
The La Liga outfit will have the majority of possession – it will be up to Wolves to create chances on the break. Adama Traore will be crucial whether he starts or comes off the bench.
This has the makings of a cagey match. Unlikely to be an end-to-end thriller, an odd goal could decide this either way. ‘No’ on both teams to score is our pick at 8/11.
At the time of writing, you can back our 888 tips as a Tuesday night double at 11/5.
