Thursday’s Football Tips: Arsenal, Rangers, Man Utd & Leicester All Eye Europa League Prize

Four British teams are in Europa League action on Thursday, each of them hoping to join Spurs in the round of 16 draw on Friday.

Manchester United are in the most comfortable position after a 4-0 win over Real Sociedad last week. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has confirmed he’ll make changes but we should still expect a fairly strong United XI to start the match.

The Red Devils are a tempting 19/20 to win but it’s best to wait for team news and might even be worth hanging fire to see how the game is developing before having a punt in-play.

In the early kick-off Rangers should book a place in the last 16 at Ibrox. The Gers’ match see-sawed in Belgium last week before Steven Gerrard’s side eventually ran out 4-3 winners. They’re unlikely to lose by two and the bookies don’t think so either, pricing them at 1/33 to qualify.

Both legs of Arsenal’s tie with Benfica have to be played at neutral venues which is a great leveller. The two sides fought out a 1-1 in Rome last week and now must meet at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Athens where it’s all to play for.

Last of the British contenders are Leicester City v Slavia Prague without the influential James Maddison through injury and Kelechi Iheanacho through suspension. The tie is in their own hands after a 0-0 first leg draw with Slavia. The Foxes are around the 8/15 mark to win but it could be another tight affair at the King Power where a single goal could decide it.
