The Europa League resumes on Thursday with the remaining second legs of the last 32. Rangers ended their 12-year wait for an away European win on Wednesday by beating Braga to reach the last 16 and the other British teams will be looking to follow suit.
Arsenal vs Olympiacos
Arsenal come into this game with an away goal after winning the first leg 1-0. The Gunners looked strong in the first match and could have easily been two or three up before the final whistle. They have beaten Olympiacos in three out of their four home meetings in all European competitions so will fancy their chances, while the Greek side have also lost 10 of their last 11 away games in Europe, which doesn’t bode well for them here.
They could have scored during the first leg and were unlucky, but Arsenal should progress. They finished strongly in Greece and should stamp their authority in this match early on being at home. Back Arsenal to win and Gabriel Martinelli to score at 9/4 with William Hill’s enhanced odds.
Manchester United vs Club Brugge
Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by Club Brugge in the first leg of this tie. They have an away goal in their pocket but will be looking to finish things here with a win. You never know whether United are coming or going this season in what’s been an up and down campaign. Anthony Martial has found his form recently, though, which is a huge boost to the Red Devils, and they now sit fifth in the Premier League, only three points off a top-four position.
Club Brugge have never won a European game in England, last losing to Leicester in 2016. While they put in a valiant effort in the first leg of this tie, a visit to Old Trafford should prove too much of a challenge. Back United to win at 42/100 and Martial to score first at 7/2 with William Hill’s enhanced odds.
Celtic vs Copenhagen
Celtic faced a tough task when travelling to Copenhagen in the first leg of this tie. Now playing at Celtic Park, they should feel a lot more confident after securing a 1-1 draw. The Scottish side are undefeated in their last six home fixtures against Danish opposition and during this time they haven’t conceded a goal. On top of this, their lively home support will surely be a massive boost, which should enable them to see off Copenhagen.
Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard has also been in fine form, scoring in the first leg and netting 26 goals in all competitions this season. He’ll be confident of adding to his tally on Thursday night. Celtic to win at 42/100 and Edouard to score two or more at 8/1 with William Hill’s enhanced odds are worth a look at here.
Espanyol vs Wolves
This tie seems to be all but over after Wolves’ 4-0 demolition job of struggling Spaniards Espanyol last week. Wolves, who head over to the Cornella-El Prat to finish what they started, are unbeaten in their last six European away games and have scored 17 goals in the process. However, given the first-leg result, they may think about fielding a weaker squad here to save key players for the Premier League. That said, you’d still imagine they’d be able to get the job done regardless. Wolves to win sits at 13/10.
