The Europa League matchday three is in focus for football betting tips today. It’s another huge night of European football.

We will be looking at some of the English and Scottish teams that return to action on the night.

Let’s dive straight into football betting tips today


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Benfica v Rangers

Rangers are sitting top of the Scottish Premiership at the moment and will be looking to build on a great start on the European front as well.

Rangers opened with a 2-0 away win at Standard Liege before seeing off Lech Poznan at Ibrox in their second match.

So they are shaping up well and this is a battle for top spot against Benfica, who have also won their first two.

Rangers are the 16/5 underdogs for this contest, which looks a tough one.

Rangers are W2 D5 L4 out on the road in the Europa League. Their win at Standard Liege was their first ever in the group stage.

Benfica were runners up in the Portuguese Liga last season. They started their season in the Champions League qualifiers but dropped down to this.

The Portuguese side holds an unbeaten record at home in the Europa League, tallying 24 (including qualifying). They have won 20 of those.

Benfica to win at 5/6

Football Betting Picks Today: Ludogorets v Tottenham

Spurs will need to dust themselves off after a shock defeat in their second group stage match in this season’s Europa League.

Jose Mourinho’s men had opened their campaign with a 3-0 home win over LASK but then stumbled on a trip to Belgium.

Tottenham lost 1-0 at Royal Antwerp on Matchday two. So that just takes the pressure up a little bit more ahead of this trip to Ludogorets.

Tottenham are 1/3 odds-on to pick up the win on Thursday.

However, they haven’t won before away from home in the group stage of the Europa League.

It is a D4 L5 record from such matches. Tottenham’s loss in Antwerp last week leaves them with just one victory in their last five Europa League away games (group stage and knockouts).

Ludogorets are 15/2 to pick up the home win in this one.

It hasn’t been a great start from them in this campaign as they have lost their first two matches.

The Russians have lost both of their games by a one-goal margin, conceding a total of six goals in those two games.

So there should be chances for Tottenham in this one.

Tottenham to win & BTTS at 7/4

Football Betting Tips for Today: Leicester v Braga

Leicester are in very good spirits at the moment. They are going well on the domestic front and have won their opening two games in this season’s Europa League.

The Foxes are on a four-match winning streak in all competitions now, but this will be their toughest European game yet this season.

Leicester have already seen off Zorya and AEK Athens, but face the in-form Braga on Thursday night.

Still, in their own backyard at the King Power, Leicester are 8/11 odds-on for the win.

The Foxes won their one previous home match played against visitors from Portugal. That was a 1-0 win against on matchday 2 of the 2016/17 Champions League.

The Foxes are unbeaten in seven home games in Europe (W5 D2).

Football Betting at BetvictorBraga are W7 D3 L10 against English opposition, with two of those successes only happening in England for them.

They have only lost one of their last four visits there.

Braga boasts a very good W7 D6 L3 record away from home in the Europa League group stage. They have won their last four such fixtures.

We can see them turning up at the King Power and doing enough to take a point back with them.

Draw at 14/5

Online Betting Football Tip: AC Milan v Lille

AC Milan will be looking to make it three wins from three in this season’s UEFA Europa League.

The wins, a 3-1 success at Celtic and a 3-0 victory over Sparta Prague have left them in a great position in the group.

Milan are 8/11 favourites for this fixture and it has been a good season overall from them.

The famous Italian club has met Lille before. That was in the 2006 Champions League group stage.

There was a 0-0 in France before Milan were upset at the San Siro in a 2-0 loss.

However, they are in much better shape now than they were for that tie. Milan holds a strong W5 D1 L1 record at home in the Europa League group stage.

It is a powerful home record that they have going against French opposition as well. Milan are W8 D3 L1 in such fixtures.

Lille picked up a 4-1 victory over Sparta Prague on matchday one. That ended a 17 match winless streak of European form from them.

They followed that up with a 2-2 home draw against Celtic, which you can’t help but feel were precious points dropped.

The French side are unbeaten this season across all competitions. We don’t see them getting anything out of this one, however.

In the Europa League group stage, Lille are W2 D4 L4 on the road.

Milan to win at 8/11
