Football – Europe – Europa League Betting Tips

Villarreal will be looking to complete a successful group campaign in Group A of the Europa League on Thursday night when they play host to Maccabi Tel Aviv at their Estadio de la Cerámica, and clinch top spot ahead of the knockout-rounds.

Having already qualified to the next phase of the competition, Villarreal will now focus their attention on claiming top spot in order to avoid another group winner or a Champions League club, by winning this evening; they’re still unbeaten and hold a home record of  1-1-0  5/3 thanks to a 3-1 win over Astana and a 2-2 draw with Slavia Prague.

In addition, Villarreal have suffered just one defeat from their last 15 matches at home in all competitions, and with forwards Bakambu and Bacca up front, they look in good shape ahead of match day six.

Visitors Maccabi Tel Aviv have produced a dismal display in the Europa League to date as they sit in a disappointing last place in Group A with just a single point to their name after the first five matches of the group stages.

This point was a 0-0 draw with tonight’s opponents, Villarreal, but it was achieved at Maccabi’s Winner Stadium, which, ironically, has seen them lose their last two Europa League ties on the trot with defeats to Astana and Slavia Prague.

The aforementioned opponents also inflicted defeats upon Maccabi Tel Aviv when the Israeli side were on their travels, and an away record of  0-0-2  0/5 suggests they could well struggle again at Villarreal on match day six.
