Europa League

Deeply analysed soccer tickets to win today

Randers are looking to make history and advance to the UEFA Europa League group phase for the first time ever. Galatasaray stand as their final hurdle. It’s all wide open ahead of the rematch in Istanbul.

We saw a 1-1 stalemate in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League playoffs tie between Randers and Galatasaray.

The Danish outfit managed to bounce back from conceding first as midfielder Frederik Lauenborg cancelled out Kerem Akturkoglu’s opener for Galatasaray.

It was generally an evenly-matched contest which could have gone either way.

The Turkish side come into the return leg as clear favorites to advance but we can hardly see the value in the 1.55 odds offered for the home win pick here.

Despite their lack of European experience, Randers are anything but a naïve opposition, especially at this stage of the season when they seem to have caught the right rhythm.

Randers are still unbeaten in the new season of Danish Superliga. They won four and drew two of the opening six league affairs, having conceded only four goals in the process.

The head coach Thomas Thomasberg might well park the bus here and wait for his team’s chances from counter-attacks.

Given how well Randers have done defensively so far in the season, Galatasaray could face serious problems converting in the final third.

As a matter of fact, we can easily see Randers’ goal incoming here because Galata’s defense has by no means been reliable so far this summer.

Prediction

Galatasaray have been very easy to break down in their European games this summer. They shipped seven goals over two Champions League legs against PSV and they allowed three more in two Europa League matches against St. Johnstone in the previous round.

This is a historical opportunity for Randers who should enter the game as form favorites and we can hardly look past the 2.25 odds offered for the Danes not to lose in Istanbul.
