Even 40 matches will be played in the UEFA Europa League Second Qualifying Round 1st Leg on Thursday, and in the following article, we will present you our selection of ten most exciting games of the day. This is the second and final part of our list, so take a look at the next five encounters.
MOL Fehervar could afford to relax in the returning leg of the previous round as they beat Zeta in Montenegro 5-1, so they saved their energy in the returning leg that ended without goals. The Hungarian side are firm favorites against Vaduz at home, and the victory here is widely expected. Vaduz is without an away win in the last four games, and the 1.40 (-250) odds on MOL Fehervar to win are great for your acca bet.
AZ Alkmaar entered this stage of the competition as strong favorites against the Sweden opposition, Hacken. Unlike Hacken, AZ have a lot of experience playing in the Europa League, and the only thing that bothers me is the fact that the Dutch side hasn’t played a single competitive game this season. They did play six friendlies during the summer, winning three and losing three, but still, AZ are a better team, so feel free to back them at 1.53 (-189).
Viitorul Constanta are facing a tough task against Gent in Belgium, but they have been impressive lately as they scored at least a goal in each of their previous 19 matches! Gent, on the other hand, still haven’t played a competitive game this season, and I am sure their defense will have problems to keep the Romanians away from goal. Gent found the back of the net in each of their last 11 games, and that’s why I am going with BTTS at 1.90 (-110).
Another exciting game will be played in Slovenia where Domzale are welcoming Malmo. Malmo scored even 11 goals in the first qualifying round against Ballymena, but it’s not going to easy this time around, especially tonight. Domzale scored at home in each of the last 16 matches, and even though Malmo kept their net intact in four of the previous five away games, I am backing both sides to score here at 2.00 (+100).
We’re concluding the UEFA Europa League Second Qualifying Round 1st Leg Betting Preview and Picks with a tilt between Valur and Ludogorets. The Bulgarian champions Ludogorets suffered a disappointing defeat to Ferencvaros in the Champions League qualifications, and now they cannot afford to play with their fans’ nerves. They are traveling to Iceland to face Valur, who haven’t scored a goal in a two-leg tilt with Maribor, also in the UCL qualifications. The odds on Ludogorets drastically dropped from 2.10 (+110) to 1.36 (-278), but I am still backing the visitors to come away victorious.
