Thursday's feast of UEFA Cup action

The UEFA Cup continues on Thursday with the round of 32 second leg ties following the first legs last week. Manchester City are live on ITV4 against Copenhagen and here at William Hill on betliveTV we have five top-quality matches for you to watch for free.

We have a wide range of betting available on the UEFA Cup including some enhanced odds multiples which give you great value prices.

Man City v FC Copenhagen

Last week in Denmark these two sides drew 2-2, with Copenhagen twice coming from behind to level the score. Mark Hughes' side have a distinct advantage with the away goals and should make short work of the Danes at the City of Manchester Stadium.

City are priced at 1/2 to win the second leg with another draw available at 3/1 and a shock away win at a big 6/1. City have been relatively good at home this season and their superior talent should come through against the unfancied visitors.

This is underlined by the 1/7 about the English side qualifying to the next round. But for better value it would be best to back City on our double result market to win both halves. Man City half-time/Man City full time is 10/11 and with the likes of Robinho and Shaun Wright-Phillips about Hughes' side should dominate.

Robinho is even money to bag a goal at anytime. The Brazilian has only one UEFA Cup goal to his name this season but he should make it at least two against the Danes.

betliveTV

The live football is not just restricted to Man City's tie on ITV4 as from around Europe we have five second leg ties available to watch for free on your PC on betliveTV.

Hamburg v NEC Nijmegen

The first betliveTV offering is Martin Jol's Hamburg against Dutch side NEC Nijmegen. The match kicks off at 17:00 and the German side have a 3-0 lead from the first leg. They are unsurprisingly short at 2/5 to win the second leg, but will Hamburg be complacent and think the job has already been done? Catch all the action live on betliveTV to see how the second leg unfolds.

Galatasaray v Bordeaux

The second match of the evening sees French side Bordeaux make the trip to "Hell" to face Galatasaray. You can watch and feel the intimidating atmosphere from 18:30 live on betliveTV. The Turks are favourites to progress at 8/11 and are priced at 5/4 to win the second leg in Istanbul. The tie could go either way as the first leg in France finished goalless.

Standard Liege v Braga

Braga make the trip to Belgium with a 3-0 first leg lead. Standard Liege are therefore up against it, can they get themselves back into the tie? The Belgians are 4/5 to win the second leg and an early goal could make things interesting. You will be able to watch the whole match on betliveTV from 19:45.

Stuttgart v Zenit

Defending UEFA Cup champions Zenit travel to Germany to face Stuttgart in the second leg after winning the first leg 2-1. Zenit may now be without the services of the departed Andrei Arshavin but much quality still remains. But Stuttgart are no pushovers with Mario Gomez amongst their ranks.

These two sides are evenly matched and Zenit are narrow favourites at 8/13 to qualify for the next round with the Germans priced at 6/5. An away win in the second leg is available at 3/1 but Stuttgart are clear 10/11 favourites to win the return leg which kicks off at 19:45.

Udinese v Lech Poznan

Our third 19:45 betliveTV kick-off is the second leg of Udinese against Lech Poznan. The Italians are favourites to win the match at 8/13. The tie is well poised with the scores level at 2-2 following the first leg in Poland last week. The Italians have the crucial away goals but if the Poles were to score in Italy then it would make things very interesting.
