Today’s football betting tips will be focusing on some of the Europa League action that is spread out across the continent.

There is plenty of English and Scottish interest around in this season’s group stage and we will be dialling in on some of that.

Football betting tips today will get underway with a look at Leicester’s trip to Greece as the Foxes try and continue their positive start.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: AEK Athens v Leicester

This is an interesting test out on the road for Premier League side Leicester who are 8/11 odds-on to win with Paddy Power.

Leicester kicked off their group stage campaign, with a comfortable home success over Zorya.

Following a morale-boosting win in the Premier League over Arsenal on the weekend, they should be in good spirits for this.

This will be their first-ever fixture against a Greek opponent. The one concern for Lecister supporters though is the away form of the Foxes in Europe.

They have lost their last three European away games, winning two of their previous nine.

AEK finished third on the domestic front last season, and they are not the easiest of sides to face in Europe.

They lost against Braga on matchday one of this Europa League campaign.

That was only their second defeat in their last 17 Europa League fixtures (which includes qualification matches as well).

That having been said though, they have won only two of their previous 12 home fixtures in the group stage of the Europa League (W5 L5).

We think the visitors nick this one.

Leicester to win at 8/11

Football Betting Picks Today: Rangers v Lech Poznan

Rangers are in a rich vein of form at the moment, having won their last six games in all competitions.

There was a huge positive for them on matchday one of this Europa League group stage campaign.

The Gers secured a 2-0 win at Standard Liege.

That game is part of a four-match sequence in all competitions again, where Rangers have taken a clean sheet.

So they look solid favourites for this game out in Poland, which they are 1/2 odds-on to win with Paddy Power.

Rangers hold a W3 L1 record at home and are W5 D2 L2 overall against Polish opposition.

Lech Poznan have lost their two previous matches against Scottish opposition and are 5/1 underdogs to get off the mark in Thursday’s fixture.

In their matchday one fixture, the Polish outfit got their matchday one campaign off to a losing start.

They went down 4-2 against Benfica.

Lech Poznan had to get through four qualifying ties to get here. They hold a W2 D2 L2 from six previous group stage away games.

Rangers have conceded in each of their last four European home games, but we think they are value to blank Thursday’s opponents.

Rangers to win to nil at 13/8

Football Betting Tips for Today: Real Sociedad v Napoli

This should be one of the highlight matches of Thursday night’s Europa League action.

Even though they are out on the road, Napoli are the narrow 7/5 favourites for the win.

That’s surprising as the Italians lost on matchday one at home against AZ Alkmaar so already have some ground to make up.

It’s worth looking at Napoli’s away record in Europe. They have only managed two wins in their last ten (D4 L4).

Napoli have lost their last two such fixtures.

So we have to see the value in a Real Sociedad success at 15/8 here with Paddy Power.

This campaign has been a return to European action following a two-year absence.

The Spaniards are a team in form with a four-match winning streak going.

They collected three points on matchday one, scoring a 1-0 win at Rijeka.

They have lost just one of their last thirteen home games in European action, with a win in twelve of those.

Real Sociedad therefore have a very strong home record going for them. They are undefeated in their two previous home games against Italian opposition (W1 D1).

Real Sociedad to win at 15/8

Online Betting Football Tip: Lille v Celtic

Celtic’s form has taken a little bit of a nosedive, as they are winless in three matches across all competitions.

On matchday one of this Europa League campaign, they were outclassed at Parkhead by the visiting Milan.

Celtic dropped that one 1-3 on the night, despite quite a bold attempt at a comeback in the fixture.

This will be their first meeting with Lilly, but the Bhoys are 17/4 underdogs for success on Thursday.

The away record of Celtic in the Europa League doesn’t exactly instil punters with a lot of confidence.

They are W2 D10 L10 in previous away games in the competition.

Lille are in good form this season and are W4 D2 in their last six games across all competitions.

They scored three points with a good 4-1 road success at Sparta Prague on matchday one.

That snapped a staggering 17-match winless streak of European form that they had been on.

This will be the French clubs’ first encounter against Scottish opposition. They are 8/13 to collect the victory against a Celtic side who are winless in eight games in France (D2 L5).

Lille to win at 8/13
