Europa League

Thursday's Four Well Analyzed and Predicted Games

Betis vs Leverkusen

At the remarkable 8th spot in the Laliga appears Real Betis who will play home to a Bundesliga outfit side Leverkusen in what will be an entertaining Europa league showdown. The former has actually established a solid performance in a series of games and definitely we expect them to fasten their defense in this crucial moment, a point in time when it matters the most. They are coming into this game in a good shape having impressively won 4 of 5 played recently across all competitions.

Despite an overwhelming defeat, in a match played against top side Bayern Munich producing a 5-1 result, Bayer Leverkusen will be keen to bounce back to winning ways after the loss which did halt their incredible 5 match winning streak. The visitors will be hoping to outsmart their opponents today in a highly contested encounter that will for sure seek to settle a stalemate on who takes the driver's seat. These two tie on points at the first and second places after both won all their opening 2 matches and it is therefore left to be seen who will lower the gear here which will be a blessing in disguise to the other.

Lazio vs Marseille

After their 3-1 stun over Inter Milan, a rejuvenated Lazio who beat all odds to secure a European spot will possibly pose a huge threat to Marseille who they will host. The home side Lazio, take the 2nd spot having managed 3 points in their two games whilst the visitors come 3rd in position at the group table, just a point adrift of their opponents today.

This occasion will without doubt be a vital decider where both sides will definitely take it with full armour where Lazio are favourites to penetrate the rivals. It's indeed the kind of a contention that can easily end in favour of either way.

Glasgow Rangers vs Brondby

As Europa league continues to take center stage, the round of 3 features an exciting fixture where Brondby travel to face off a Glasgow Rangers. With no clear cut history of these two ever meeting against each other, it remains to be seen the record to be set for the very first time they play each other.

It's a really a perfect opportunity for both sides to showcase their prowess in such a top tier European football. With losses to Sparta Prague and Lyon, the Rangers side are left battling at the bottom of the table having zero points as opposed to a resilient Brondby who embraced fighting spirit edging Sparta Prague on a draw that yielded a point for them. Ostensibly, the draw for the visiting side might be a recipe for their future prospects.

Sparta Prague vs Lyon

A heated exchange between two in form sides where a 2nd placed Sparta Prague welcomes the group leaders Lyon. The visitors Lyon command at the top courtesy of their deserved triumphs over Rangers and Brondby and going forward they will be looking to cement the first position.

Meanwhile, the hosts Sparta Prague will hope to capitalize on their home advantage in a bid to hold a lethal opponent. It's really a difficult challenge for them with Lyon as most cherished to trail on them.
