We’ve got five Europa League predictions from Thursday’s final round of group-stage games and will land a 23/2 acca if they all come in.
CSKA Moscow let us down for a 6/1 pay-out last week, but don’t worry if one of the legs falters because bwin’s five-team Acca Insurance ensures we refund minimum £5 stakes as a Free Bet up to £25 when a five-fold is placed on the same day and a single selection goes astray.
Also, don’t forget to watch out for bwin’s Enhanced Accas, with price boosts provided on a number of popular combinations from all competitions.
Napoli to beat Real Sociedad @ Evens
These teams are first and second in Group F, but with AZ Alkmaar also bang in contention to qualify, there is little room for error. Sociedad probably need a victory to advance and head coach Imanol Alguacil has vowed to adopt a positive approach. However, that could leave them open to counter-attacks from Napoli, who prevailed 1-0 when visiting Real in Spain on Matchday 2 and have beaten both Roma and Crotone 4-0 in their last couple of Serie A fixtures.
Young Boys to beat CFR Cluj @ 1/2
Roma are the runaway winners in Group A and Young Boys just need to avoid defeat against CFR Cluj to follow them through. However, the hosts are fancied to make sure with a home win at Stadion Wankdorf, where they crushed CSKA Sofia 3-0 early last month. A recent 2-1 triumph over Basel at this venue helped Gerardo Seoane’s side to go top of the Swiss Super League table and away victories at Lausanne and Lucerne have helped to cement that position, with three goals netted in each of those matches.
Feyenoord to win at Wolfsberger @ 5/4
Wolfsberger ruined many accas when winning 1-0 at CSKA Moscow last Thursday, including our Europa League predictions, but we’re backing Feyenoord to pip them to second place in Group K behind Dinamo Zagreb. The Austrian outfit are only seventh in their domestic table following Sunday’s 4-1 drubbing at Swarovski Wattens and their success in this competition has come as a complete surprise. Feyenoord have failed to sparkle so far, but Dick Advocaat won this tournament back in 2008 with Zenit, when it was known as the UEFA Cup, and the Little General can hopefully rally his more-talented troops for one last push and a crucial triumph here.
Leicester to beat AEK Athens @ 7/20
The Foxes are hot favourites to wrap up first place in Group G by seeing off already-eliminated AEK. City have brushed aside Braga 4-0 and Zorya 3-0 at King Power Stadium and are unbeaten in their last eight European matches at this venue. Sunday’s last-gasp Premier League victory at Sheffield United ended a poor little run of results and should have lifted spirits ahead of this contest. AEK need to focus on domestic matters after a 2-1 defeat by Panathinaikos left them fourth in the Greek table, with a big game against Olympiacos coming up as one of three more quick fixtures before a winter break.
Tottenham to beat Royal Antwerp @ 4/11
The Belgian side have a two-point advantage at the top of Group J heading into the final round of fixtures, so only a win for Spurs will ensure they claim first place and guarantee avoiding the teams which will drop into the competition from the Champions League. Antwerp were top of the league in Belgium when upsetting Tottenham 1-0 on home turf in late October but their form has dipped since then, winning just one of their last five domestic matches to slip to fourth. All four of their Jupiler League defeats this season have come on their travels, conceding 14 goals in eight games on the road.
