Eintracht Frankfurt might have lost their entire strikeforce from last season (Luka Jovic, Sebastien Haller and Ante Rebic), but they’re still an superb side below the stewardship of both Adi Hutter — plus they will lead to Arsenal problems. They won their first two Bundesliga dwelling matches, and another deep run in the competition is not out of the query.
The Gunners have had troubles on the road in Europe–for some while. Last seasonthey dropped to BATE Borisov and Rennes away from home, along with a lot of basic, deep-lying problems were unearthed by their screen at Watford . It’s tough to see them maintaining lots of clean sheets this season.
It’s likely to be a game, and separates these two in all honesty; at 7/2, a score draw seems a decent prospect.
I have Rennes beating Celtic at home.
The French side now sit 2nd in Ligue 1 supporting PSG, and that I expect their start to carry into Europe.
Naturally, Celtic have predictably started nicely in Scotland, but just two victories in their past 17 Europa League matches does not read well.
Like it was during their triumph against Arsenal last year, it’ll be a fantastic atmosphere at Roazhon Park, along with the hosts must be relatively confident of victory.
Manchester United welcome Astana on to Old Trafford on Thursday, and I’m backing them to win .
Both of United’s successes at Old Trafford (against Chelsea and Leicester) have been followed using a blank sheet, even while Astana dropped their last European off match–a qualifier against BATE Borisov back in August–2-0.
There’s always a chance but at Old Trafford they should be keeping their Kazakhstani competitions at arm’s length.
I’m not likely to back an effect for Rangers v Feyenoord, but I am going to suggest BTTS.
Despite Rangers keeping three clean sheets in their four Europa League home matches this year (although the degree of opposition has been abysmal), they have conceded in all 3 home matches in the Premier League, also usually flatter to deceive at the trunk.
Steven Gerrard has done fairly well with Rangers however Feyenoord–that are unbeaten this season–are a more powerful outfit and should have some pleasure on Thursday.
I have Wolves beating Braga Like I said in my Europa League acca, however I’m going to bring a value to that within this trailer: a house win and the two groups to score.
Nuno’s men defeat a great Torino side twice in qualifying (each time with the two teams scoring), and although their league form is a little ropey, I’ve them repeating the tip from their Portuguese adversaries. This is going to be Wolves’ focus.
Both groups have played in four of Wolves’ five league matches up to now, although Braga have failed to score this season — against Benfica.
