EUROPA LEAGUE THURSDAY: We preview Thursday’s Europa League games with a recommended BETDAQ bet. It’s LASK LINZ v MANCHESTER UNITED, OLYMPIAKOS v WOLVES and RANGERS v BAYER LEVERKUSEN.
LASK LINZ V MANCHESTER UNITED
5.55pm Only three teams from the UK remain in the Europa League after Celtic and Arsenal both suffered shock losses at home in the Last 32. We kick off the Last 16 with Manchester United traveling to take on LASK Linz. It’s fair to say that United would have been delighted with the draw, but now they have to go and make sure they do the job. They should breeze through this tie, but as we all know with United these days, things are rarely straightforward.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; LASK Linz 4.4, Manchester United 2.02 and the draw is 3.5. United are heavy favourites to qualify yet come into this tie a shade of odds against to win here. They have improved a lot in recent weeks and we’re very happy to back them at 2.02. They should easily outclass this LASK side and with their recent improvement in form, they are wrap up this tie tonight. The 2.02 looks massive and looks the banker of the night to stick in any BETDAQ Multiple.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Manchester United to beat LASK Linz at 2.02.

OLYMPIAKOS V WOLVES
8pm There’s plenty of drama around this tie at the time of writing. Wolves asked UEFA for this tie to be postponed too but it was rejected and goes ahead behind closed doors. How this fixture goes ahead is a bit baffling given the Arsenal situation, but let’s see what happens.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Olympiakos 3.6, Wolves 2.36 and the draw is 3.35. Arsenal were able to win here in the last round before going on to lose at home and although Olympiakos are a very solid side – Wolves will be disappointed if they can’t get through here. It’s a massive opportunity for them. Wolves are in good form too and have put together some solid away performances, including beating Spurs recently. They can get a result here and we’re happy to lay the home side at 3.6.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Lay Olympiakos at 3.6.

RANGERS V BAYER LEVERKUSEN
8pm Rangers produced one of the more dramatic performances to get into the Last 16, and they’ll be hoping to not go two behind in this home tie! Bayer Leverkusen will be a much tougher test and you’d have to think that if Rangers have any chance of getting through; they simply have to win tonight. That’s easier said than done though against a side like Bayer.
The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Rangers 3.45, Bayer Leverkusen 2.26 and the draw is 3.65. Bayer warmed up for this tie by banging in four goals at the weekend, and they recently drew away from home against RB Leipzig who put Spurs to the sword on Tuesday night. They did well to beat Porto in the last round, winning 3-1 away from home. We can’t see past a Bayer win here given the gulf in class and the 2.26 looks too big to ignore.
BETDAQ BEST BET:
Bayer Leverkusen to beat Rangers at 2.26.
