The second leg of the Europa League qualifying round will resume this week. Here are some of the things to look out for. Bet on football here.
Wolves out to stake claim in Europe
Wolves will head to Seaview to face Northern Irish side Crusaders as they seek their first continental trip in Europe this term. The Premier League outfit have a 2-0 lead from their opening European game and they will not be leaving anything to chance. Crusaders have lost eight of their last 12 in Europe, including three defeats in five at home and the visitors should have too much for their host to handle.
Torino to confirm their return to Europe
Torino will be eager to finish off Debrecen and book their place in the next round of the Europa League qualification. It has been a long-awaited return to European football for Torino, who have seen their ambitions of returning to this competition frustrated over the last few seasons. Debrecen have a tough 3-0 defeat to come back from in this game, while they are coming into this one with a less than stellar European record behind them. The pressure is on Torino to grab this opportunity, especially given how they managed to book their place in Europe. Can they build on their first-leg success and wrap up this tie to move to the next stage?
Frankfurt to dominate against Flora
Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to assert themselves on home soil after a narrow win in the first leg against Flora. Last week’s match was a tight affair after the Germans controlled a majority of the proceeding, but the final result did not reflect this as they won 2-1. Having won and scored two goals on the road, Frankfurt will fancy themselves to progress to the next round. Flora for their part will come to this match with little optimism but that could work in their favour.
Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score
Espanyol won their first leg against Stjarnan with a degree of comfort and they will be looking to finish off the job with a decent result this week. Owing to the emphatic 4-0 win during the first leg, Espanyol are safe from elimination and therefore they will play with freedom. The home side are also expected to give a good account of themselves in front of their own fans. After all, they have scored five goals in three home Europa League games since 2018. We should expect to see a number of goals from both sides and you can back Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score at odds of 2.10.
Rangers to avenge against Progres Niederkorn
The Gers will be out to finish their revenge mission when they head to Luxembourg this week to play against Progres Niederkorn. The two played each other in this competition in 2017 and Rangers were surprisingly knocked out of the competition. They need to book a place in the third round, where they are expected to take on Danish side Midtjylland. Steven Gerrard will not allow his side to be complacent and he will be demanding total concentration here.
