Europa League

Following the entertaining Uefa Champions League quarter-final matches played on Tuesday and Wednesday – Europa League returns with the teams seeking a place in the last four. Last week, Liverpool, arguably the favorite on paper to win this year’s title suffered a shocking loss to Atalanta of Italy on home soil. So, they would be looking to overcome the 3-0 scoreline. Let’s take a look at the betting tips for the games.

West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen

The newly crowned German Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen travel to England to face West Ham with a two-goal cushion having dominated the first leg a week ago. Leverkusen is riding on a very good form having gone 42 games without a defeat in all competition and no doubt now they have become a favorite to claim a title. Facing an improved Hammers side under David Moyes will serve it as a tricky match especially away from home. This season, West Ham has already managed to overcome German opposition in the round of 16 beating SC Freiburg having to come from behind after losing the first match. But the quality of the opposition is different, and it would take a huge ask to dispatch red-hot form Leverkusen under the reigns of Xabi Alonso.

Best Bet: Both teams to score at 1.54

As Roma VS AC Milan

One of the shocking results last week saw AS Roma beating Ac Milan by a 1-0 scoreline at home. After the draw, there was much talk of the clash to provide an electrifying atmosphere and it never disappointed so far. Now Roma has a chance to bury the tie at home. In the past three years, Roma has become a big competitor in traditional Thursday-night football and have reached two finals in two years. They are on the verge of reaching the third one in three consecutive years. Since Danielle Rossi took over in late January as the club manager, it has proven to be a good decision with the club in good shape and winning. So, Milan will have an uphill battle to beat Roma at home for the second time this season having won 2-1 in the league match. The history dates back 10 years ago since Roma suffered two losses on their turf against Italian opposition Fiorentina being the side to achieve that.

Best Bet: Roma to win at 3.05

Atalanta vs Liverpool FC

Atalanta pulled a classic performance to thrash Liverpool 3-0 at Anfield Stadium. That victory downsized Red’s chances of obtaining the first European title in five years. The wheels seem not to be turning in the right direction as the loss to Atalanta was followed by another one in the hands of Crystal Palace. Within a week, they seem to be out of European Competition and have been overtaken by Manchester City in the English Premier League standings. Jurgen Klopp has already announced that he will no longer take charge of the side going forward and he stands a chance to go out empty-handed unless his team can pull something special. In 2019 to reach the Uefa Champions League final, Liverpool did the unthinkable, overcoming 3 3-goal deficits to win 4-0 against the mightily Barcelona in the semi-finals. They are a team that can deliver any good performance looking at their depth. So, the big question remains – can they do it in Italy and progress to the semi-finals?

Best Bet: Over 2.5 Total Goals at 1.35

Marseille vs Benfica

Following a 2-1 loss in Portugal, Marseille will be looking the home advantage into their favor when welcoming Benfica on Thursday. In their last eight games at home, Marseille haven’t tasted defeat winning five of those and drawing three times. Four of those wins have seen them recording 3 plus goals per match. The last time these two sides faced each other in France was back in 2009 with Benfica reigning supreme by a 2-1 scoreline in the same tournament. If Benfica manages to progress to the semi-finals, it would be the first time in 10 years. Marseille have a good track record against Portuguese sides at home with four wins in the last five outings.

Best bet: Marseille to win at 2.35
