Although a not completely positive beginning of the season, Athletic has however showed to be able to create problems to any opponent.

Sometimes spanish team's defense committs some mistakes and considering that AZ Alkmaar, 11th in Eredivisie, has always scored 2 goals in each of the 5 following Europa League matches.

We choose BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE here.

Villareal occupies the first position in the Liga with 5 wins and a draw in 6 matches but the Europa League hasn't started good after the defeat vs Rapid Wien (2-1).

Spanish team's defense often does not assure solidity and the clash vs Viktoria Plzen is not easy: czech team won the previous czech league and now occupies the second position. In the first round they easily won the home match vs Dinamo Minsk.

Also here we have a preference for BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.

 

Augsburg is a very well organized team and till now has been the only opponent to give hard times to Bayern Munchen.

Partizan has an awful trend when playing away Europa League matches (10 losses in the last 13 matches).

We choose the HOME WIN.

Monaco has lost the defensive solidity that characterized the team in the previous season bringing Monaco till the Champions League quarterfinals.

Monaco can't count anymore on Abdennour and Kondogbia but the skills in the offensive phase are not missing and indeed Monaco's last matches have been rich of goals.

And we expect to see BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE here because Tottenham also has the same defect: a good offensive potential and a difense which committs too many mistakes.

Although Schalke has lost Julian Draxler in the last transfermarket the team has been playing a good football till now and indeed has collected 5 wins in a row.

Asteras has obtained bad results recently and its trend in Europa League is far away from being decent: 4 losses and 5 draws in 9 matches played.

Huntelaar has already scored 10 goals in 8 matches and we choose him as goalscorer.

As main bet we choose the HOME WIN.

Liverpool has obtained a good draw in the first Europa League match vs Bordeaux.

Sion hasn't got a skilled team and has collected 2 losses in a row in the swiss league.

HOME WIN.

After the home defeat occurred vs Angers on last Sunday, Marseille will try to obtain the second win in a row in Europa League.

French team is much stronger than Slovan Liberec, which has already been defeated by Sporting Braga in the opening match.

HOME WIN.

Although the draw vs Darmstadt on Sunday (2-2), Borussia Dortmund has showed a pleasant football, made of pressing, ball possession and long passes.

Getting away PAOK's stadium with a win is not easy but this Borussia is really on a good shape.

We choose OVER 2.5 here.

St. Etienne has played a very offensive football till now showing a good ball possession and an high organization in dead balls situations.

Lazio has won all the matches played in its stadium in the current season and usually adopts a very offensive gamestyle.

We choose HOME WIN and OVER 1.5.

Fiorentina occupies the first position in the italian league. The only delusion has come in Europa League because of the home defeat vs Basel (1-2).

Fiorentina has its best players all on shape and the away win in Milan vs Inter (1-4) confirms it.

Belenenses is weaker than Fiorentina and looking at its score in portuguese league, the 5 points collected in 6 matches are not so many.

For the braves here we choose AWAY WIN, but the safest bet is FIORENTINA DOUBLE CHANCE.

From an offensive point of view Napoli has been perfect since the beginning of the season and now that the defense has showed solidity in the last matches played there is a lot of optimism among Napoli's players.

Legia Warsaw has ended the last 7 matches played with the sign BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE. Polish team is usually offensive and has a good striker, Nikolics, who has scored 10 goals in the last 10 appearances.

We choose OVER 2.5.
