Europa League

Thursday's Four Best Selected Matches To Bank On

Leicester City vs Napoli

Napoli's stun over Juventus shines them with a smile as they travel to lock horns with The Foxes at the King Power Stadium. The Community Shield holders Leicester City would fancy a Europa league title this season after they were unluckily edged out of the UEFA champions league spot in the EPL ultimate contest day last season.A really mouthwatering opener between two top notch sides.

Leicester have picked only 6 points in their 4 already played Premier League matches suffering a huge blow with losses to West Ham and Manchester City. Perhaps the defeats can be attributed to be against relatively tough sides. It's a different story when it comes to Napoli who stand at the enviable 3rd spot after winning all their 3 opening fixtures for the Serie A with just a mere goal difference separating them from the league leaders.

The hosts ought to work a clear cut plan to overhaul a visiting side who have performed excellently as they have lost just a single match in 19 played across all competitions. At some point recently Napoli were on a fantastic 8 match winning streak and hence lethal being a possible threat to Leicester.

Best prediction here is a home victory for Leicester City with BTTS result expected.

PSV Eindhoven vs Real Sociedad

At the helm of the Eredivisie table lies PSV Eindhoven who are two points well ahead of the second placed Ajax courtesy of winning all matches played so far in the league. In the recent late the hosts today have shown tremendous improvement at the attacking spots having netted 8 goals in just 2 most recent games. They will be playing host to a Laliga Real Sociedad outfit who apparently are 4th in position, just a point adrift of the league leaders Real Madrid, having managed deserved triumphs against Rayo Vallecano, Levante and Cadiz ensuring an impressive 3 match winning streak.

As the race for the knockout phase takes center stage, all eyes are on these two sides to see who gets a fine start in a bid to get an early lead. Going forward every single point will be crucial if the next stages is anything to go by.

Real Sociedad to outsmart their hosts with a win in this particular match where only a single goal could make the whole difference.

Glasgow Rangers vs Lyon

A victory over Nantes and Strasbourg is Lyon's biggest motivation after they had trailed to a struggling form that had seen them fail to win a single match in 7 previous games. Now they are in good shape and superbly at the driving seat of Ligue 1. Similarly, Glaslow Rangers are in the seat of authority aspiring to fight hard in the upcoming Europa league competitions set to start today.

The home side Glaslow Rangers command a really exciting run of performance unbeaten in the last six matches played across different occasions winning 5 of them. They will be seeking to extend it to 7 matches unbeaten in their quest to get better of Lyon side who are without doubt a venomous side.

We back Lyon to carry the day by getting all points here.

Rennes vs Tottenham

An exhilarating showdown that will bring fourth an interest from the fan base as Spurs battle it out with Rennes. Looking for a return to winning ways, Tottenham Hotspurs go into this match with a huge setback under their new manager Nuno after they were hammered 3 goals by Crystal Palace in their most recent premier league match, which spelt doom for them more so after an overwhelming start.

These two will be meeting for the very first time in a Europa Conference League after Tottenham Hotspurs failed to make it for the Europa league. This was after Spurs finished 7th closely behind 6th placed West Ham. However, they could offer something special tonight in a bid to remain competitive.

Best prediction: Tottenham Hotspurs to marginally win.
