Europa League odds, tips and predictions: Arsenal, Leicester, Wolves, Celtic and Rangers in action

FIVE British clubs are in action on the penultimate round of Europa League group fixtures.

Arsenal and Leicester have already secured safe passage to the knockout stages of the competition, while struggling Celtic were eliminated last week.


Jose Mourinho's Tottenham require a point against LASK and Rangers a win at Ibrox to qualify for the last 32.

Here, SunSport takes a closer look at Thursday evening's games with all the tips, odds and our prediction in this betting preview.

AC Milan vs Celtic – 5.50pm

  • AC Milan to win and both teams to score: 13/8 with Coral*

This one's a bonafide dead rubber for Celtic.

The Hoops were dumped out of the competition with two games to spare having endured back-to-back 4-1 defeats to Sparta Prague.

Celtic's all-time away record in Europe now reads W2 D11 L11 and AC Milan, who can potentially qualify with victory, should pile on the misery.

The Italians won the reverse fixture 3-1 and we're predicting a similar scoreline at the San Siro at 13/8 with Coral*.

LASK vs Tottenham – 5.50pm

  • Tottenham to win and over 4.5 goals scored: 5/1 with Paddy Power*

Spurs are on a roll. A seriously good one.

The north London club are unbeaten in their last six games in all conceptions and have registered 12 goals along the way.

Jose and Co. need a point to qualify while the Austrian side are likely to need a win to keep their Group J qualification hopes alive.

With LASK expected to throw caution to the wind, we're backing goals, goals, goals with Tottenham to win and over 4.5 goals scored in the match at 5/1 with Paddy Power*.


Zorya vs Leicester – 5.50pm

  • Kelechi Iheanacho to score first: 16/5 with Betfair*

Leicester have already qualified for the round of 32 and will ensure top spot in the group if they complete a double over Zorya.

The Foxes cruised to a 3-0 victory in their previous clash with James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Kelechi Iheanacho on target.

The Ukrainian hosts could exit the conception even if they run out winners.

Brendan Rodgers' side are averaging three goals per game in the Europa League and we expect Iheanacho to add to his tally of three.

With Jamie Vardy likely to be rested, we're backing the Nigeria international to score first on Thursday at 16/5 with Betfair*.

Arsenal vs Rapid Vienna – 8pm

  • Nicolas Pepe to score first: 13/2 with Ladbrokes*

Europe's been kind to Arsenal this year.

Mikel Arteta's side have collected four wins out of four and have booked their place in the knockout stages.

It could seem like the Gunners have nothing to play for.

But with pressure mounting on manager Arteta – the Spaniard will view Thursday's clash as a good opportunity to win the group and return to winning ways.

Nicolas Pepe is also looking for redemption and we think he'll be on the scoresheet for the fourth consecutive UEL game. He's 13/2 to score first with Ladbrokes*.



Rangers vs Standard Liege – 8pm

  • Rangers to win -1: 21/20 with Betway*

Steven Gerrard is certainly getting a tune out of his side.

The Ibrox club are on a 22-game unbeaten run in all competitions and should seal qualification against their Belgian opponents.

Liege haven't kept a clean sheet in this year's tournament and have lost by two or more goals in three of their last five away outings.

Rangers to win -1 can be backed at 21/20 with Betway*.
