Football – Europe – Europa League Betting Tips

There’s still everything to play for in Group J as the group has emerged into a three-way race between Krasnodar, Sevilla and Standard Liege as to who will claim the all-important top two positions in order to make it to the knockout rounds as the betting tips continue.

Standard Liege take on Sevilla at the Stade Maurice Dufrasne in Liege with the hosts looking to post a third win on the trot in all competitions following back-to-back wins in the Belgian First Division A with victories over Kortrijk and Eupen.

However, a heavy 5-1 defeat away at Sevilla on match day 1 put the Belgian club on the back foot and despite recording back-to-back wins thereafter against Akhisarspor and Krasnodar (both at home and both by 2-1 score lines), Standard Liege then promptly lost 2-1 away at Krasnodar.

This means tonight’s hosts trail Sevilla by three points so Standard Liege must win tonight in order to remain in contention for a place in the knockout rounds. Midfielders Djenepo (4 goals) and M’Poku (5 goals) along with forward Emond (5 goals) are the hosts main hopes here.

Sevilla know that if they simply avoid defeat in Belgium on Thursday night this would virtually guarantee their place into the next phase of the Europa League, barring any freakish results on match day 6.

The visitors will nevertheless be searching for a fourth win in all competitions here as they’ve registered wins against Akhisarspor (away) and two home wins on the trot in La Liga over Espanyol and Real Valladolid respectively.

Sevilla also boast a very good record away from home in the Europa League as the Spanish outfit have won 6 of their last 9 and suffered just one defeat within this sequence on their travels. Forwards Andre Silva (8 goals) and Ben Yedder (6 goals) are the main threats up front for the visitors.

The betting tips fancy both teams to notch in this encounter.
