Borussia Dortmund to win at Rangers @ 1.70
Rangers produced the shock of the night last week when they went to the Westfalenstadion and stunned Dortmund 4-2. The Scottish side moved 3-0 ahead inside 49 minutes and, despite Jude Bellingham pulling one back, Dan-Axel Zagadou put through his own net to restore Rangers’ three-goal advantage. However, Raphael Guerreiro’s late strike closed the gap and left Dortmund with a sniff at Ibrox. Marco Rose’s side responded casino sbobet to their shock home loss by repaying their fans with a 6-0 rout of Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend. Although Rangers have won their last nine on home soil, Dortmund’s class should shine through and ensure a win on the night, but will it be enough to go through?
Lazio and Porto both teams to score @ 1.80
Porto have the advantage heading into the return game in Italy after Toni Martinez’s double secured a 2-1 win. There looks to be goals in this one going off both sides’ records this season. Lazio have only failed to score in four of their 16 home games this term, while Porto are prolific on their travels. The Portuguese outfit have only fired blanks in two of their 18 games on the road this season, against Atletico Madrid and Liverpool in the Champions League, and are still finding the net despite losing forward Luis Diaz in January.
Napoli and Barcelona both teams to score @ 1.72
Arguably the tie of the round, it is all to play for in the second leg after a 1-1 draw at the Nou Camp. The Italian side have only failed to score three times this campaign ahead of Monday night’s trip to Cagliari, with three of their last four games seeing both sides scoring. Barca showed form on Sunday, hitting four past Valencia courtesy of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s treble, with the Spanish team finding the net in their last 13 games.
Olympiacos to draw with Atalanta @ 3.50
Atalanta take a 2-1 lead to Greece for the second leg after coming from behind following Berat Djimsiti’s quickfire double. And the Italians will be glad of the one-goal lead looking at Olympiacos’ home record. They have won 15 of their 19 home games this season, losing just once to Eintracht Frankfurt in this competition, and are currently enjoying a 10-match winning run in front of their own fans. Atalanta’s form has been patchy lately with just one win in seven, but they have drawn two of their previous four away.
Real Betis to beat Zenit Saint Petersburg @ 2.00
Betis edged a thriller 3-2 in Russia, one of nine wins in their last 11 outings. Zenit have no problems scoring on their travels, netting in eight of their last nine, but have won only two of their previous eight away from home to make Betis big favourites in our Europa League predictions, especially given how seriously the Spanish teams take this competition.
