Europa League Accumulator Bet – 12 December
Tuesday night’s bets on the Champions League proved profitable, as we banked our eighth winning tip in our last 10 selections in the competition.
Lazio (1.72) v Trabzonspor (4.75); Draw (3.80)
Italian side Lazio host Turkish outfit Trabzonspor on Thursday, with the two sides locked in a straight shoot-out for top spot having both already qualified.
Lazio’s domestic form continues to be worrying for coach Vladimir Petkovic’s whose side have failed to win any of their last six matches in the Italian top flight, but away from Serie A and the Biancocelesti go into Thursday’s match having won three of their five matches in the Europa League this season.
Visitors Trabzonspor have also struggled domestically this season, but three wins in the last five games in the Turkish Super Lig does at least point to more encouraging signs for Karadeniz Firtınasi.
Trabzonspor have scored two or more goals in their last seven matches in the Europa League. Back Trabzonspor to score over 1.5 goals @4.00.
Both sides scored three goals each in the reverse fixture back in October and with top-spot on the line, expect both sides to find the net at the Stadio Olimpico tonight.
Accumulator Bet 1
Both teams to score @1.83
Pandurii (2.25) v Pacos Ferreira (3.50); Draw (3.40)
Group E reaches its climax on Thursday, with Pandurii and Pacos Ferreira both looking to pick up their first win in the competition.
Hosts Pandurii have found the back of the net in three of their five matches in Europe, but last weekend’s 3-0 victory over Universtat Cluj was a vitally important result; bringing the club firmly back into the battle for a top-three place in the Romanian Liga.
Visitors Pacos Ferreira have scored only once in the Europa League this season and the struggling Portuguese outfit look set for further disappointment on Thursday.
Accumulator Bet 2
Pandurii to win @2.25
St Gallen (4.20) v Swansea (1.95); Draw (3.60)
Premier League qualifiers Swansea will be hoping to wrap up qualification to the Europa League knock-out stages at the second time of asking on Thursday, as St Gallen host the Swans.
The Swiss side have already been knocked out of Europe having lost their last four matches in the Europa League, but a 2-0 victory over Kuban Krasnodar in the opening game did at least illustrate the side’s competitiveness in the competition this term.
Opponents Swansea have seen their preparations for the match disrupted, but a win on Thursday would give Michael Laudrup’s side some much needed cheer, after struggling for form for most of the calendar year.
Hosts St Gallen have conceded at least three goals in each of their last three matches in the Europa League and the Swans look set to push for all three points to secure their qualification to the knockout stages tonight.
Accumulator Bet 3
Swansea to win @1.95
Betting Accumulator Odds – 8.04 (wins for Pandurii and Swansea, with both teams to score in the Lazio v Trabzonspor match)
