Today’s football betting tips are all arriving from the UEFA Europa League. That is the big focus of the night.

This is all action from the second leg of the round of 32 matches and there is plenty of British interest happening on the night.

We have five Europa League matches to look at in football betting tips for today.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Ajax v Lille

This is one of the more interesting ties from the Europa League and Ajax are in control.

The Dutch side are 17/20 to pick up a win back on home turf.

They collected a 2-1 success in the first leg and they are totally in the driving seat with those away goals in the bag.

Ajax are bang in form at the moment as well, thriving on an eight-match winning streak in all competitions.

It is only a W1 L2 record at home in Europe this season, but those losses were against Liverpool and Atalanta in the Champions League group stage.

Lille lost their one previous visit to Ajax, which was a Champions League fixture in 2019.

The French side are 14/5 underdogs for this one as they look to get their first win over the Dutch.

That’s three games between them and three losses for Lille.

Interestingly though Lille did win at Sparta Prague and Milan in the Group stage of this season’s Europa League.

They may not be done yet and are worth backing to get on the scoresheet.

Football Betting Picks Today: Arsenal v Benfica

This Europa League tie is still nicely in the balance after a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

The Gunners get the advantage of home soil and having an away goal in the bag.

They are 4/5 to get the victory on Thursday at home against the Portuguese side.

Arsenal are only W1 D2 L3 in their last five games in all conditions so are not in the most confident of moods.

The one previous occasion on which Arsenal hosted Benfica was back in 1991 and they lost that 1-3.

Arsenal’s overall record against Benfica is D2 L1.

We still expect this time to be tight. Benfica have lost just five games all season across all competitions.

They are W1 D4 in their last five fixtures in all competitions.

Benfica are unbeaten in the Europa League this season as well with a W3 D4 record.

We fancy another 90-minute draw.

Draw at 14/5

Football Betting Tips for Today: Villarreal v RB Salzburg

The Spaniards are in control of this tie after a 2-0 first leg away win at Salzburg.

Wins haven’t been all that easy to come by for Villarreal this year.

They have taken only two of them in their last nine fixtures across all competitions.

But on the flip side of that, they have lost only one fixture in 2021 from thirteen played.

Bet at Coral

Villarreal are 17/20 odds on to get the victory on Thursday night in the second leg of this tie.

Their record from their two previous home games against the Austrians is W1 L1.

Salzburg are a team in form as they won six of their last seven games in all competitions.

The only blip in that sequence was in the first leg of this tie.

Salzburg have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last nine games in all competitions.

We don’t see them turning this around, be we see them scoring.

Villareal to win & BTTS at 5/2

Online Betting Football Tip: Leicester v Slavia Prague

There was a draw for Leicester in the first leg of this Europa League tie and that was a 0-0 scoreline.

So there is still some work to be done by the Foxes.

But with home advantage, this should really be in the bag for them.

Leicester are 8/15 odds-on to get the victory back at the King Power on Thursday.

The Foxes are undefeated in their last six games in all competitions, winning four of those.

In that sauce, they have earned four clean sheets as well.

Saliva Prague aren’t in bad shape themselves, but this looks as if it’s going to a bridge too far.

In the group stage this season they lost away at Hapoel Beer Sheva and Bayer Leverkusen, conceding at least three goals in each.

Leicester to win at 8/15

Online Betting Football Tip: Man Utd v Sociedad

The final game for today’s football betting is Manchester United v Sociedad.

This as a tie looks to be completely over with the Red Devils taking a fantastic 4-0 road win in the first leg.

So they are firmly in the driving seat and it’s probably a chance for them to rest some players back at Old Trafford.

United won their previous home game against the Spaniards 1-0 in a 2013 Champions League fixture.

The Red Devils are a quote of 10/11 for the win on Thursday.

Sociedad are the ones that have to chase the game, but this is a hopelessly lost cause now.

That loss in the first leg is the only defeat that they have suffered in any competition since mid-January.

The Spaniards have claimed just three wins in their last eleven games in all competitions.

This game looks like it is going to be a little low-key and with United probably not going full-on for this one, we are considering parity.

Draw at 13/5
