Rapid Wien v Arsenal: BTTS and over 3.5 goals in the match

Coming into this game, Rapid Wien are in strong goalscoring form with 10 in their last four Bundesliga fixtures, which has helped them to 10 points in the league. With their strong form, they are capable of scoring at least one past a much-improved Arsenal side.

Mikel Arteta’s side have many goalscorers with Alexandre Lacazette their highest in the league with three, whilst Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains a threat, despite not scoring since opening weekend. Depending on the side that starts the match, the Gunners can be very efficient in front of goal against the Austrian club.

Currently, odds of BTTS and over 3.5 goals is priced at 2/1, as the Europa League favourites look to get their European campaign off to a flyer.

Spurs v LASK Betting Tips

Celtic v AC Milan: Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score and AC Milan to win

On his first game back for AC Milan since his injury, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a brace within 20 minutes to help guide his side to a 2-1 victory against rivals Inter Milan. So far in the Serie A this season, Zlatan has played two and scored four goals.

Stefano Pioli’s men are, as of now, top of the Serie A on the maximum points of 12, three points clear of any current Champions League side. In these four matches, they have only conceded one with that coming from their last fixture. Celtic are currently second in the SPFL, four points behind Rangers after losing the Old Firm derby at Celtic Park, in what has been labelled as one of the club's worst Old Firm performances in recent times.

As a result, we have backed a Milan win with a goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic at current odds of 17/10.

Leicester City v Zorya: Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy to score

Leicester City make their Europa League debut in poor form with no goals in their last two matches as they were defeated by West Ham United and Aston Villa. This will mean that prolific striker, Jamie Vardy, will be eager to get back to his goalscoring ways since his hat-trick against Manchester City. As well as this, a possible start for Kelechi Iheanacho, who lacks in playing time, could also see him net a goal.

Zorya Luhansk have not lost in their last four games in the Ukrainian League, including two draws to both Champions League side of Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv. Despite this, they will be facing a much stronger side as well as the disadvantage of travelling to the King Power Stadium for this match.

As of now, odds of Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy to score in this fixture against Zorya are priced at 15/8.

Tottenham Hotspur v LASK Linz: Gareth Bale to score a brace

Spurs be eager to kick on after losing a 3-0 lead against West Ham, where Gareth Bale came onto the pitch to witness a 3-3 finish. Bale will want to make amends for his miss that some would say cost them the three points and help Jose Mourinho’s men build on their 16 goals in past three games.

LASK Linz are in strong form with four wins in their last five matches including a victory against Sporting Lisbon to achieve a Europa League spot.

A major positive for Dominik Thalhamer’s men is that goalkeeper Alexander Schlager has recently returned to the side after suffering a muscle injury in the Europa League qualifying match against Sporting.

Currently, odds for the four-time Champions League winner to score a brace against LASK is priced at 7/1, whilst a hat-trick for Bale has odds of 40/1
