Thursday's best football betting tips from the UEFA Conference League

Today’s football betting tips dip into the action from the UEFA Conference League. It reached the Play Off Stage of qualification.

This is where Tottenham come into action, as well as other big players like Roma and Rennes.

We will take a look at each of their games for today’s football betting tips.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Rennes v Rosenborg

Football betting tips today starts with what should be one of the more competitive fixtures on the night.

Rennes are two matches into their new French top-flight campaign and they enter the qualification process at this stage.

This will be their first meeting with Rosenborg.

What form do we have to go on? Well, Rennes have drawn their two Ligue 1 matches this season.

The French side did have big European action last season, playing in the Group Stage of the UEFA Champions League.

They earned one point from their six matches.

Rosenborg have been very busy as the new domestic season in Norway started back in May.

They have also come through two rounds of qualification in the Conference League, winning all four matches.

Rosenborg also scored at least six goals in both of their qualification ties.

This is a much tougher assignment but they should be confident as it’s a seven-match winning streak that they are on in all competitions.

Last season their European qualification campaign was ended in the Europa League Play Offs by PSV.

It may turn out that they are a bigger threat at home. But they appeal to sneak a draw on Thursday.

Draw at 13/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Pacos Ferreira v Tottenham

This is just one of those strange games, where really you don’t know how interested Tottenham are going to be in it.

Football betting for today next looks at the first leg of their UEFA Conference League play off tie at Pacos Ferreira.

Spurs were in a celebratory mood on the weekend, winning their opening Premier League game of the season.

That was a sweet one for them against reigning champions Man City.

It’s highly unlikely that boss Nuno is going to send out a full-strength starting XI for this one.

This is not really where they want to be.

Last season Tottenham were eliminated in the Europa League Round of 16 against Dinamo Zagreb.

The Conference League has opened a path to Europe that a lot of teams involved this season wouldn’t normally get.

Pacos Ferreira are one of those.

This is their first action in UEFA competition since failing to get through the qualification campaign for the 2013/14 Europa League.

They took a 4-1 aggregate win over Northern Ireland’s Larne in the last qualification round.

Even if Spurs aren’t at full strength, we have to consider the away win.

Tottenham to win to nil at 9/5

Football for Today: Trabzonspor v Roma

Today’s football betting tips finishes up in Turkey with Trabzonspor looking to make their mark.

In the previous round, they claimed a penalty shoot out win to progress past Molde.

That was after both legs ended in a draw.

Aside from that, the only other competitive fixture that Trabzonspor have played in this new season, was earning a win in their opening game of the new Turkish league on Monday.

The Turkish side missed out on Europe last season.

In their 2019/20 season, they came through the Europa League qualifiers to compete in the group stage.

They returned with a D1 L5 record in that group stage.

Bet at Betfair

Roma lost in the semi-finals of the Europa League last season to Manchester United.

But that was a long campaign for them and with all their experience, will be expected to prevail on Thursday.

For this new competition, it is difficult to know how focused the bigger clubs are going to be.

This is the third tier tournament that UEFA offers after all.

Still, we’d expect an away win.

Roma to win at 3/4
