Football – Europe – Europa League Betting Tips

Onto Group C, and Russian club, Zenit St Petersburg play host to bottom club, Bordeaux as the betting tips continue in Thursday night’s edition of the Europa League.

Match day three represents a great opportunity for Zenit to pull away from their rivals at the top of the group having earned a valuable point in a 1-1 draw away at Copenhagen, and then following up that solid point with a 1-0 home win over Slavia Prague.

Zenit will be at their Saint-Petersburg Stadium once again this Thursday evening where they’ll face off against Bordeaux, as the hosts look to preserve their fantastic record on home turf in this competition; the hosts have won 8 of their last 9 Europa League ties and have scored 26 goals and conceded just 6 in reply during this impressive sequence.

Midfielders Erokhin (4 goals) and Shatov (3 goals) are the support in the engine room while Russian forward Dzyuba (5 goals) is a constant threat up front.

Bordeaux come into this vitally important match day three in the Europa League looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot which would make life extremely difficult for the visitors as they look to claw their way back into a top two place.

However, a 2-0 loss away at Montpellier in Ligue 1 on the weekend won’t have boosted their confidence at all, and having already lost their opening two group matches against Slavia Prague 1-0 away and a damaging 2-1 loss at home to Copenhagen, this clash is very much a ‘must-win’ match for the French outfit.

But with just three away wins from their last 15 Europa League ties on their travels, the writing does appear to be on the wall for Bordeaux here.

My betting tips advise a home win for Zenit.
