Morning all

Unreal luck last night – Ajax 2-0 up against 10 man Rapid Vienna and somehow drew 2-2. Never again!!

Several people have asked for a larger shot 6 fold, similar to a few we have won in the past, such as a 200/1 6 fold. With there being such a massive amount of games in the Europa League today, and lots of mis-matches, I have picked 6 games I like – so today will suggest a NAP, Double, 4 Fold and 6 Fold – to cater for all budgets.

1. Hajduk Split-Stromsgodset BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 7/5 (2000 KO) NAP

Hajduk’s two leg tie in the last round ended 3-2 and 4-1 against an average Koper, while Stromsgodset overcame stronger opposition in Mlada Boleslav, 2-1 win and 1-0 loss. Both have good attacks but concede a lot – Hajduk conceded 4 on the weekend! Fancy this to be a high scoring affair!

2. Zilina Win @ 6/5 vs Vorskla Poltova (1830 KO)

Vorskla are a very average Ukrainian side, who only got into this competition through the cup, and the fact a lot of higher teams are in financial trouble so could not enter. They struggled to a 1-1 draw with Hoverla, one of the two worst teams in the league. Zilina on the other hand have won 11 of their last 15 home games. This is great value for me!

3. Sampdoria -1 Goal @ Evens vs Vojvodina (2000 KO)

Vojvodina are a decent side, but should be no match for the Italians, who have a very handy squad. Italian teams are always good at home, and I’m expecting a 2-0 win. Again, Italians renowned for their defending, and Sampdoria have retained their squad – so should win this game. 1/3 for the match, 2nd leg should be around Evens!

4. St Etienne Win @ 6/5 vs Targu Mures (1900 KO)

St Etienne have retained most of their squad, and added Nolan Roux as their number 9. They play a decent Targu Mures side, who have been made to look better than they are by a troubled Romanian league where half the teams cannot enter Europe because of voluntary bankruptcy. The French side should win this fairly easily in my opinion.

5. Rosenborg-Debrecen BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 5/4 (1900 KO)

Debrecen’s tie with Skonto Riga had a total of 15 goals over the 2 legs. Rosenborg on the other hand had an easier tie, beating Reykjavik 3-0 and 1-0. Both are of similar quality, so should be a good game with plenty of goals! Both struggle for clean sheets.

6. Sturm Graz-Rubin Kazan BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 8/5 (1800 KO)

Rubin are having a torrid time in the league at the moment, both this season and last. On a terrible run of games, while Sturm have made it into Europe for the first time in a while and are a good attacking unit, who also struggle to keep a clean sheet. Rubin do have some quality players, such as Livaja, Marko Devic, Carlos Eduardo and Yann M’Villa.


1. NAP: 1 @ 6/5
2. Double: 1 + 2 @ 4.5/1
3. 4 Fold-Acca: 1-4 @ 25/1
4. 6 Fold-Acca: 1-6 @ 138/1

Today is speculative to say the least, but recently the more risky bets have been coming off while the safer ones have been messing up very late in the day, which is frustrating!

Best of luck!
