EUROPA LEAGUE THURSDAY: We preview Thursday’s Europa League quarter final 2nd leg matches between CHELSEA v SLAVIA PRAGUE and NAPOLI v ARSENAL both with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
CHELSEA V SLAVIA PRAGUE
8pm We have a great night ahead in the Europa League and we start with Chelsea hosting Slavia Prague. Chelsea are in a strong position in this tie after winning the first leg 1-0 and that was no mean feat given Slavia Prague have proven to be a tough side to beat this season. The fact that Chelsea could travel there and come away with a win suggests that Slavia Prague have little chance tonight and Chelsea should complete the job.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Chelsea 1.36, Slavia Prague 11.5 and the draw is 5.5. Chelsea have been rock solid at home lately and they haven’t conceded many goals at all – this makes the handicap markets very interesting as we can’t see Slavia Prague scoring. Chelsea are trading 2.06 -1.5 goals which is very appealing; Chelsea have had 11 home wins in the Premier League and nine of these have been by two goals or more. Having seen the first leg, the 2.06 is definitely worth backing.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Chelsea -1.5 goals to beat Slavia Prague at 2.06.

NAPOLI V ARSENAL
8pm Arsenal lead 2-0 coming into this second leg and while many European ties would be almost over after that first leg, you could say that it’s set up superbly! Arsenal have been woeful away from home lately and it will be fascinating to see how they get on tonight. Napoli are a classy outfit and Arsenal were hanging on to a one goal advantage against a ten man Watford side on Monday night – a side of how little confidence they have away from home at the moment. Napoli have only lost once at home all season – it’s hard to see this Arsenal side changing that.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Napoli 1.73, Arsenal 5.1 and the draw is 4.3. Napoli look absolutely massive at 1.73 when you look at Arsenal’s recent away record and Napoli’s home record this season. The fact that Arsenal can lose by one goal and still go through is an added bonus too; as they have something to protect even when trailing. We feel that Napoli should be at least ten ticks lower given Arsenal away record and the 1.73 looks the best bet of the Europa League tonight.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Napoli to beat Arsenal at 1.73.
