Playoffs also Europa League ones are about to end.
In this post we analyze the most interesting 2nd Legs matches scheduled on Thursday 25th August.
Dick Advocaat's debut as Fenerbahce's coach coincided with a 3-0 win over Grasshoppers. Swiss side are now forced to follow an almost impossible recover and will be attacking since the beginning: OVER 1.5 seems a good choice.
Brondby are about to face Panathinaikos in precarious conditions as both, the goalie Ronnow and the left lateral back Crone, are banned.
These two absences could penalize an already struggling defensive phase.
Gent was unable to secure the qualification in Belgium vs Shkendija Tetovo which reduced the damages losing only 2-1. Gent reached the last 16 Stage of the previous UCL edition and we still see them as favourite.
St. Etienne have always been very careful from a tactical point of view in the past few seasons, but in the current one have adopted an offensive 4-3-3, their last 3 matches have
been very animated and also in the clash vs Beitar Jerusalem, already beaten in Israel 1-2 we expect to see some goals.
One year ago Astra Giurgiu ruined West Ham's dream to get the access to the Europa League Group Stage.
12 months later, the Hammers have improved a lot under the coach Slaven Bilic and after the 1-1 draw in Romania, English side are ready to prevail in the new Olympic Stadium.
On last Thursday Darijo Srna reached the 500 appearances with Shakhtar Donetsk's jersey in the 1-2 win over Istanbul Basaksehir. The second leg should have a similar result. Home side are too strong for their opponents and the qualification is almost secured.
Rapid Wien have good chances to win the clash vs Trencin, already beaten 4-0 one week ago. Polish team will have no wish to try any impossible recovery.
The same about AZ Alkmaar-Vojvodina Novi Sad where the hosts are basically already in the Group Stage after the 0-3 win on the road in Serbia.
In Red Star-Sassuolo, Italian side are clearly favourite to reach the Group Stage after the 3-0 win in the 1st Leg but probably will not get away Serbia with another win. We like BTTS and OVER 2.5 here.
