Here are our Europa League betting tips ahead of the second legs…


Man Utd to march on

A last-gasp Bruno Fernandes penalty at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes has handed Man Utd plenty of breathing space as they welcome Granada to Old Trafford.

With a top four spot all but assured in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now has the rare luxury of turning his guns fully on an all-out assault on one of the few trophies he missed out on during his playing career.

Granada’s best hopes of advancing always looked to be pinned on pulling out all the stops on home soil, given their away form has been patchy at best in recent weeks. A 2-1 win at struggling Real Valladolid last weekend ended a run of five straight losses on the road.

If Utd can shake off their customary ‘slow starters’ tag here, it should be a comfortable night for the Red Devils as they bid to land this title for a second time in five years.


Roma to reign supreme

Every team needs the odd slice of luck to fall their way en-route to European glory.

Roma will be hoping they haven’t used all their good fortune up as they landed an ultimate sucker-punch on Ajax in the first leg.

After taking a lead through Davy Klaassen, the Eredivisie side squandered the chance to take a commanding 2-0 lead before a goalkeeping gaffe from rookie keeper Kjell Scherpen allowed the Serie A side a route back into the game.

The Italians then tipped the balance of this tie firmly in their direction as a stunning late Roger Ibañez volley sealed a 2-1 win to take back to the Stadio Olimpico. The Dutch will need to be bold here to snatch a semi-final berth, with Roma generally holding firm on home territory this campaign. However, recent slip-ups in the league against Serie A rivals Milan and Napoli suggest this tie could be nip-and-tuck right until the final whistle.


Slavia to make ailing Arsenal sweat

It was that familiar sinking feeling for long-suffering Arsenal fans last Thursday.

Slavia Prague snatched a last-second away goal to keep this contest firmly in the balance heading back to the Sinobo Stadium, only minutes after the hosts had seemingly seized control of the tie courtesy of Nicolas Pépé’s late strike.

The tenacious Czech champions might just fancy their chances of pulling off an upset here, especially if Gunners key man Bukayo Saka fails to shake off the thigh issue which saw him forced off in their win at Sheffield Utd.

That injury concern has simply added to Mikel Arteta’s woes as he plans for the make-or-break tie, with his star pairing of Emile Smith Rowe and Martin Odegaard facing a race against time to be fit for Thursday and the experienced duo of Kieran Tierney and David Luiz already ruled out.

The North Londoners will at least have firepower in their favour with Gabriel Martinelli likely to feature, although Arteta will be praying Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can shake off a bout of illness in time to back for this one.

Whichever XI the Spaniard can name, Arsenal’s fate in this competition will all rest on being clinical when it counts – something that was notably lacking at the Emirates.


Villarreal to dismiss Dinamo

Villarreal are the dark horses in this year’s competition after securing a crucial 1-0 win in Zagreb – but Unai Emery’s impressive Yellow Submarine were made to work hard for that first-leg advantage despite controlling large swathes of the game.

Things could have been different for the Croatian champions had the lively Mislav Oršić managed to stay onside when it mattered, as the man who felled Tottenham Hotspur in the previous round saw his early strike ruled out at Stadion Maksimir.

Dinamo will be hoping their 28-year-old hitman can add to his tally of five Europa League goals and turn this contest on its head.

They’ll need him to take his chances on Thursday.

The Spanish Primera outfit have been in relentless form of late but did suffer a surprise 2-1 reverse at home to relegation-threatened Osasuna at the weekend.

Prior to that match, Emery’s side had been on a six-game winning run, shipping just two goals in that streak.

We’re backing that Osasuna result to be a rare off-day, given Emery’s players’ minds have understandably been focused on landing the biggest prize in the club’s 98-year history over recent weeks.

Odds correct at time of writing but may be subject to change.
