According to the impressions after three rounds of the UEFA Europa League, this season is one of the most interesting so far in this competition. Several teams are after a trophy, and also, lots of surprises happened on the group stage.
This is our selection of the best picks for the gameweek 4, with odds and short previews delivered by BetXchange.
Feyenoord VS Midtjylland
The Dutch team provides highly entertaining games with plenty of goals. Two in the last nine were with under 2.5 goals, and the majority went over five scores throughout that stretch.
The Danes are in excellent form, not losing the past six contest, with five of them seeing hits on both sides. After all the read here, the logical thing to do is to bet on over 2.5 goals, particularly because both teams need a win, and play offensive-minded football.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals 1/2 at BetXchange
Ferencvaros VS Crvena Zvezda
A significant event for both units, and possibly the crossroad for the remaining part of the UEL campaign. With a win here, the hosts are almost in the knockout stage, and if the Serbs post a triumph, they are back in the race for the top two places.
Seven days ago, we saw Zvezda beating the Hungarian champs, 4-1, with both units displaying an offensive and fast-paced game. These two teams like to attack and score goals, and now, when there aren’t too many options for them but to attack, we are sure that another high-scoring affair awaits us.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals 19/20 at BetXchange
PSV VS Zurich
The Swiss team collapsed at the start of the season, and they are going through hell right now, losing games, conceding goals, and often enough suffering humiliations. They haven’t won in the past nine events, and head to Eindhoven to meet with PSV.
The Dutch unit has four wins and a loss in the previous five meetings, flying high following a 1-5 win in Switzerland over the forthcoming opponents. We really don’t see how Zurich might avoid another confident defeat.
Pick: PSV -1.5 2/3 at BetXchange
Manchester United VS Omonia
The struggles shown during the first meeting in Cyprus were erased with a win over Everton this Sunday night, but the Red Devils fans are still concerned due to the lack of consistency on the field. This game comes at the perfect moment for Erik Ten Hag boys, who are in a position to post a confident and strong win, which would later use them as a momentum-maker for the upcoming challenges.
With all due respect, Omonia isn’t a team that can create some trouble at Trafford, and United should roll over the rivals from abroad.
Pick: Man Utd -1.5 1/8 at BetXchange
Bodo VS Arsenal
With a win in Norway, the Gunners are in the next stage, and we really doubt in claims that Arteta plans to mix up the lineup and save the players for the weekend. He can win three points on the road and buy them enough time for rest in the final two UEL rounds. Arsenal’s win over Liverpool proved that this team needs to be treated as a true title contender, not just as a “good” team.
Bodo has played inconsistent yet efficient football lately, winning only four times in the past 10 appearances. They have eight games with both scoring and conceding during that interval and seven with over 2.5 goals.
We see the Gunners beating the hosts, and pretty much solving all the problems regarding the advance to the knockout stage.
Pick: Arsenal 9/20 at BetXchange
