Crunch time for British teams in the Europa League

The qualification for the Europa League proper is drawing to a close and amongst the plethora of matches on offer to bet on there are three British teams being screen live on TV.

With a host of markets both pre-match and in-running for you to bet on, below we have a look at their chances of getting involved in a quest for European silverware.

Sigma Olomouc v Everton - 17:00 live on Channel 5

Everton may have had a woeful start to the Premier League season but made no mistakes in the first leg against little known Czech outfit, Sigma Olomouc where they ran out 4-0 winners at Goodison Park.

The home side have no choice but to throw everything forward to get a win and are 21/10 to do so and while Everton may well rest a number of key players, they look a good bet at 13/10 to record another victory with the draw at 23/10.

David Moyes will want his side to start adopting a winning mentality and if the likes of two-goal hero last time Jack Rodwell gets his chance to shine again, he will want to take it and 16/1 about him to score first looks big while a score line of 3-1 to the Toffees could be worth a punt at 16/1.

Hearts v Dinamo Zagreb - 19:35 live on BBC2 Scotland

Hearts suffered a similar fate to that of Everton's opponents in Zagreb as they went down 4-0 suggesting to some that their odds of 19/10 about a win may even be a little short for some.

They will certainly go for it but could leave themselves open for 7/5 chances Dinamo Zagreb to punish them and perhaps a draw at 9/4 could be the best the Scottish side could hope for.

For a correct score 2-2 could be worth a bet at 14/1 in anticipation of goals while one time Liverpool midfielder Igor Biscan who got on the score sheet in the first leg looks a fair bet at 7/1 to score anytime.

Aston Villa v Rapid Vienna - 19:45 live on Channel 5

After a shaky start Aston Villa will have been buoyed by their Premier League win against Liverpool and are priced accordingly to score a facile victory at odds of 1/3.

It may not be all plain sailing for Martin O'Neill's side as they trail 1-0 from the first leg and therefore must go for a win in order to qualify against 8/1 chances Rapid Vienna who would go through with a draw which can be backed at 19/5.

The home side are expected to field a strong line up and although just 7/1 a 3-0 score line looks a feasible outcome or possibly 3-1 at 9/1 allowing for an away goal as the away side will have to press if they fall behind.

Should he return, John Carew at 3/1 is favourite to score first but a better option could be James Milner at 15/2 who always looks to shoot from range and may get some set piece duties from which he is potent threat.
