Chelsea can already consider themselves at the Europa League quarter-finals after the 3-0 win over Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge. Dynamo, on the other hand, they don’t have too much to do tonight. Furthermore, they will play today without their key offensive players. Dynamo are tough to beat team, especially at home. And they will surely like to say goodbye to European competitions this year with a good performance. But Chelsea are a far better team, and even though a rotated 11 is expected, they can still win today.
Krasnodar will host Valencia at Stadion FK Krasnodar in what is expected to be one of the most interesting matches of Europa League programme. The Spanish side won 2-1 at first leg in Valencia and now the home team should something they never have done after the winter break. Win. The Russians are without a win in their last nine matches in 2019. Valencia, on the other hand, know that their lead form first leg is extremely slim. And they also know that they can’t rely on their weak defence. So they have to score if they want to have real chances to be on UEFA draw next Friday. We do believe that at least 3 goals will be scored here, so we will bet on Over 2.5 goals in best odds available.
Benfica are down 1-0 from the first leg and they intend to change that in Estadio do Sport Lisboa tonight. Despite the fact that their last home draw 2-2 against Belenenses might cost them the domestic title, the Portuguese side made their stadium a real fortress. They have only one defeat and two draws in last 13 matches at Estadio do Sport Lisboa. Croatians might feel a little bit more secure about their domestic title chances, but they know that tonight the pressure will be on them. They also know that it would be very hard for them to go with a clean sheet. So they will also have to score. And we believe that the can do it. Benfica are not famous for their solid defence after all. So all we have to do is to find the best odds for the BTTS option. And we did find them here.
Inter Milan managed to take a goalless but yet a fair draw in the balanced first leg clash at Frankfurt. Now they are hosting Eintracht and more than thirteen thousands German fans at Guiseppe Meacha. Can’t really say much about this match. The German side are in great shape, but they will not have Ante Rebic. Lucas Torro, Timothy Chandler and David Abraham are also doubtful if they can assist to Eintracht’s effort. Inter will their mind in the upcoming clash with city rivals Milan next Sunday. And they have their own problems. Kwadwo Asamoah and Lautaro Martinez are suspended and Mauro Icardi is still not being considered for selection. We believe that following their 13 unbeaten matches run for Europa League, Eintracht can eliminate Inter and go through this round.
A home win is predicted here, as Arsenal hosts Rennes at Emirates. But just a win might not be enough, as Gunners suffered a shocking defeat 3-1 in the first leg. The worst thing for London side is that Sokratis is suspended after being sent off against Rennes last week. That makes Arsenal’s defence more vulnerable to counter attacks or any kind of pressure from the French. Rennes have never been so far in any European competition. They feel that they have nothing to prove or lose here. So they will be expected to follow their game style. Let us not forget that they have scored at least 3 goals in their last 3 European matches. Arsenal had to come from a losing position in the last round of the Europa League. Can they do it again? Why not. The Gunners have won five in a row at home. But we will go with a rather safer choice. The combination of BTTS and Over 2.5 goals.
