Football – Europe – Europa League Betting Tips

Thursday night also brings us match day 6 in the Europa League with numerous teams looking to nail down their place in the knockout stages of the competition. We start with Group J where Turkish club Akhisarspor play host to Belgian side Standard Liege as the betting tips continue…


Akhisarspor sit bottom of Group J without a single point to their name after what has been a disastrous European campaign for the Turkish outfit. This was their first experience of European football and no doubt they’ve learned many lessons, but nonetheless, the harsh way as they’ve lost all five of their group matches to date.

Defeats to Krasnodar home and away as well as home and away losses to Sevilla which included a heavy 6-0 defeat in Spain along with a 2-1 loss away at tonight’s opponents, Standard Liege. Confidence must be low to say the least as they prepare to avoid a sixth straight defeat in the competition, but previous results suggest otherwise.

At their Spor Toto Akhisar Belediye Stad? in Akhisar, the hosts have already lost to Krasnodar and Sevilla, so they’ll do well to avoid defeat to Standard Liege on Thursday night I fancy.

Standard Liege

By contrast, Standard Liege have collected 9 points so far in the group stages of the Europa League and are still in the hunt to claim one of the remaining places for the next phase being the knockout rounds.

The visitors are level on points with Spanish club Sevilla who face a potentially tougher fixture on match day 6 as they play group leaders Krasnodar at home. Standard Liege were handed a heavy 5-1 defeat away at Sevilla on match day 1 but the Belgian club rallied with back-to-back home wins over Akhisarspor and Krasnodar respectively.

Another defeat away from home followed with a 2-1 loss at Krasnodar before bouncing back with a crucial 1-0 home win over Sevilla last time out. Midfielders Djenepo (4 goals) and M’poku (5 goals) along with forward Emond (5 goals) look their best bet as the visitors look to claim all three points here.

Akhisarspor v Standard – Betting Tips Verdict

Although Standard Liege have managed just two away wins from their last 13 away matches in the Europa League, they should account for a poor Akhisarspor side on Thursday night.
