Today’s football betting tips focus in on the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night as the qualification process rolls on.

After dropping from the Champions League qualifiers, Celtic start on their Europa League journey.

They are joined by St Johnstone who have received a tough draw against Galatasary.

We have a pick for each of those matches in today’s football betting plus one more selection from the round of action.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Jablonec v Celtic

Football betting tips today kick off this day’s Europa League action with Celtic playing a visit to the Czech Republic.

Celtic were dealt a crushing blow as they lost 3-2 on aggregate to Midtjylland in the Champions League qualifiers.

That was a tough one for them and it didn’t get better on the weekend.

Celtic kicked off their new league campaign with an away loss at Hearts.

So that is three games down for the new season and no win for them, so there is already pressure building.

The Bhoys are the favourites for the first leg of this tie away from home as they meet Jablonec for the first time.

Jablonec are entering the qualification process at this stage.

They have had a couple of games of their new league season under their belt, taking a win and a loss from those two.

Last season the Czech side fell at the first hurdle in the Europa League qualifiers.

That was a heavy 5-3 defeat against Dunajska Streda.

Realistically they shouldn’t pose a big threat.

Even though Celtic have had a poor start to things this season, the visitors may be worth chancing.

Celtic to win at 10/11

Football Betting Picks Today: Galatasaray v St Johnstone

Football betting for today looks at this tough tie for Scottish side St Johnstone.

Galatasary took a drop from the UEFA Champions League qualifiers and it was a heavy loss they suffered there.

Galatasaray faced PSV and were crushed 7-2 on aggregate.

It was a 2-1 home loss that they suffered against the Dutch side there.

Last season they were in the Europa League qualifiers and they bowed out against a Scottish side.

Rangers got the better of them at Ibrox in the Third Qualifying round.

The one positive for Galatasaray is that on paper this is an easier match and they did get on the scoreboard in both games against PSV.

St Johnstone kicked off their Premier League season on the weekend, playing out a 0-0 draw at Ross County.

This is their entry into the qualification process for the Europa League.

The last time that they found themselves in this position was in the summer of 2017 when they faced FK Trakai in the qualifiers and lost 3-2 on aggregate.

They may have a tough night ahead of them on Thursday.

Football for Today: Rapid Vienna v Anorthosis Famagusta

Today’s football betting tips lean towards what should be an expected home success for Rapid Vienna.

Rapid Vienna failed to make progress in the Champions League qualification.

So that is why they have ended up with this Thursday night action in the Europa League.

It was a 3-2 aggregate defeat that they suffered against Sparta Prague.

But the positive from that is that they did win the home leg of the tie 2-1.

This should also be an easier tie ahead of them in the Europa League qualifiers.

Rapid Vienna are looking to shake off a little slump of form with a D1 L2 record in their last three in all competitions.

Anorthosis Famagusta are yet to start their new domestic league season.

They are back in European action for the first time since the 2012/13 Europa League qualifiers.

It was a loss in the third qualifying round that they suffered there, getting hammered 3-0 at home in the second leg of a tie against Georgia’s Dila Gori.

Including qualification matches, Anothrotis’s record in the Europa League is W12 L8.

In their last six away games in European competition, they have suffered four defeats (W2).

It looks as if they could have an uphill struggle ahead of them in this tie.

Rapid Vienna to win to nil at 6/4
