QALABA - BORUSSIA DORTMUND


Borussia will probably play with a lineup a bit different than usual but turnover will be reduced since coach Tuchel wants the 3 points and Reus and Aubameyang will be regularly on the pitch. AWAY WIN.


AZ ALKMAAR - AUGSBURG


Looking at the stats and the attcking styles of these teams, we expect a pleasant match where goals should not be missing.


Last 6 Augsburg away matches ended BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE while AZ has collected 8 BTTS in the last 9 matches.


SCHALKE 04 - SPARTA PRAHA


German team has 6 points and it is currently leading the Group, while Sparta Praha is second with 4 points.

Schalke has begun the Bundesliga in a good way but the defense often lacks in solidity.


An hypothetical win would secure the qualification and would let coach Breitenreiter make some turnover in the next matches. HOME WIN.


Moreover, Huntelaar is looking for his 50th goal in european competitions.


FIORENTINA - LECH POZNAN


Fiorentina will make some turnover in sight of the important Serie A match vs Roma on Sunday, but the reserves have made great performances till now.

Lech Poznan, the champions of Poland in the previous season, surprisingly occupy the last position in the national league.

Polish team flight has had over 5 hours delay and that summed to their low motivations led us choose the HOME WIN and for the braves HOME WIN HANDICAP (-1.0).

 

MIDTJYLLAND - NAPOLI


A lot of turnover among Napoli players. Coach Sarri will keep a lot of players on the bench (Higuain for sure and also one between Hamsik and Allan).

This away match is really tough for the italian team which is surely stronger but there is a lot of enthusiasm among Midtjylland player.

Danish team is leading the national league, has a good tactical organization and scores a lot in dead ball occasions.

Better to avoid the AWAY WIN. We choose BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.

 

LAZIO -ROSENBORG


Lazio has been struggling a lot till now without Biglia in the midfield and De Vrij in the defense.

Rosenborg is still unbeaten in away matches of this Europa League (considering also the qualifiers) but in Italy has collected 6 losses in 7 matches.

Lazio, although some absences, has a great home trend and in our opinion will have the best.



Bet at 5dimes

DNIPRO - ST ETIENNE


St Etienne will be without the banned Beric and Sall both sent off in the previous match vs Lazio.

Dnipro is surely favourite. The last season finalist have scored at least 1 goal in 14 of the last 15 matches.

We choose DNIPRO DOUBLE CHANCE.


ANDERLECHT - TOTTENHAM

 

Anderlecht fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat to Qarabag FK last time out in the Europa League and will be looking to bounce back with a win against Spurs here. The Belgian outfit, though, currently foot Group J having taken one point from the opening two games.

 

Spurs are unbeaten in the Europa League with four points to their name so far. Victory here would tighten their grip at the summit of the group as they strive to reach the next round of the competition

 

This is the first meeting between the two sides since 2007, which resulted in a draw. However, Spurs could nick the win here.

 

FENERBAHCE - AJAX

 

Fenerbahce are seeking their first win in the competition having followed up their shock 3-1 defeat to Molde with a 2-2 draw at Celtic.

 

Ajax aren't in much better form, having drawn their last three European matches. However, they can take faith from the fact they've won all eight of their previous matches against Turkish team, scoring 21 goals and conceding just two. Although, that might not mean much when you consider they haven't faced a Turkish side since November 1993.

 

The Dutch side have scored at least one goal in each of their last eight fixtures in all competitions and can be expected to get on the scoresheet up against a Fenerbahce side that have conceded two goals in three of their last four games.


LIVERPOOL - RUBIN KAZAN

 

Liverpool have opened up their Europa League group stage campaign with two draws against Bordeaux and Sion, but could potentially top the group with a win here.

 

Rubin Kazan, on the other hand, only have one point to show for their two matches. They are also in a terrible run of form in the Russian Premier League having won just three of their opening 12 league matches.

 

There will be a special atmosphere for Klopp's first match at Anfield, which should give the players an added boost for this fixture.
