Ajax vs Young Boys Odds: 8/11

The first game on this list sees the Dutch champions Ajax take on Swiss champions Young Boys at the Johan Cruijff Arena on Thursday.

Ajax knocked out Ligue 1 leaders Lille in the round of 32, 4-2 on aggregate and have been involved in four games from their last five that have had over 2.5 goals in them, including both legs against Lille, as well as 4-2 and 3-1 wins against Sparta Rotterdam and Groningen.

Meanwhile, Young Boys pulled off a stunning victory against Bayer Leverkusen in the last round, beating the Germans 6-3 on aggregate. The first leg in Switzerland finished 4-3 to Young Boys, following an 89th-minute winner by Theoson Siebatcheu. The last league match which Young Boys were involved with that had over 2.5 goals was on 28th February, as they drew 2-2 with Luzern.

This game is priced at 8/11 to have over 2.5 goals in it, which is fair considering how free-scoring both sides have been of late.

AS Roma vs Shakhtar Donetsk Odds: 4/6

AS Roma take on Shakhtar Donetsk at the Stadio Olimpico in what is one of the standout ties of this round.

The Italian side progressed through to the round of 16 having beaten Sporting Braga 5-1 on aggregate. Three of Roma’s last five matches have had over 2.5 goals in them, including their 3-1 home win against Braga, as well as a 2-1 win against Fiorentina and a narrow 2-1 loss to AC Milan at home.

Shakhtar Donetsk beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv 3-0 on aggregate last time out in the Europa League, none of their last four league games in the Ukrainian league have had over 2.5 goals in them, but, they have had some impressive displays in Europe this season, beating Real Madrid 2-0 and 3-2 in the Champions League group stages.

This match is priced at 4/6 to have over 2.5 goals in it, which is reasonable considering Roma’s recent form, as well as Shakhtar’s displays in European competitions this season.

Manchester United vs AC Milan Odds: 17/20

The next game on this list has been branded as the tie of the round, as Manchester United take on AC Milan at Old Trafford.

United come into this game on the back of an impressive 2-0 win against Manchester City. Their last game with over 2.5 goals in it was against Newcastle United on 21st February, on the same week that they thumped Real Sociedad 4-0 in Turin to virtually guarantee themselves a place in the round of 16.

Milan’s form has dropped off a little bit of late, with the Serie A side winning just two of their last five matches against Hellas Verona and Roma. Just two of their last five matches saw the over 2.5 goals market land, in their 2-1 win at the Stadio Olimpico, as well as being thumped 3-0 by city rivals Inter Milan at the San Siro.

Despite Stefano Pioli’s side struggling to advance past Red Star Belgrade, winning via away goals following a 3-3 scoreline on aggregate, his side were entertaining in the group stages, as they scored 12 and conceded seven over six games against the likes of Lille, Sparta Prague and Celtic.

This game is priced at 17/20 for the over 2.5 goal market to come off, which is fair due to both teams’ goalscoring records in Europe this campaign.

Slavia Praha vs Rangers Odds: 1/1

Czech outfit Slavia Praha take on recently crowned Scottish champions Rangers at the Eden Arena with both sides fancying their chances of getting through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Slavia come into this game having knocked out Leicester City 2-0 over two legs which was regarded by many as a shock win. Their last two matches in the Czech First League resulted in 3-2 and 2-1 wins against Slovacko and Banik Ostrava.

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers provided viewers of the Europa League with arguably the most entertaining tie of the competition this season, as they beat Royal Antwerp 9-5 on aggregate. In between the two legs against the Belgian side, they also thumped Dundee United 4-1 at Ibrox, as well as beating St. Mirren 3-0 last Saturday just 24 hours prior to Celtic’s 0-0 draw with Dundee which confirmed Gers as league champions for the 55th time.

Slavia against Rangers has the odds of 1/1 for over 2.5 goals to be scored in the first leg in Prague, which considering the away side’s last European tie against Antwerp, it is more than understandable.

Granada vs Molde 8/11

The last game to feature on this list is Granada against Molde, with both sides earning shock wins in the round of 32.

Granada knocked out Serie A outfit Napoli 3-2 on aggregate, as Angel Montero’s away goal at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium was enough to see off the Italian side, following Granada’s 2-0 first-leg victory at Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes.

Four of the Spanish outfits last five games have had over 2.5 goals in them, including the away leg in Naples, as they have also been beaten 3-2 and 2-1 away at Huesca and Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, and recorded a 2-1 victory against Elche on 28th February.

Meanwhile, Norwegian Eliteserien side Molde managed to beat German Bundesliga club Hoffenheim 5-3 on aggregate, as an Eirik Ulland Andersen brace in the away leg sealed a 2-0 win for Molde, following a 3-3 draw at Villarreal’s Estadio de la Cerámica in the first leg.

Four of Molde’s last five European matches have seen the over 2.5 goals market land against the likes of Rapid Vienna, Dundalk and Arsenal, as well as the first leg against Hoffenheim as mentioned above, with the Norwegian side scoring eight goals, whilst also conceding nine times.

This game is priced at 8/11 to have over 2.5 goals in it, which is fair considering the statistics above and the fact that both of these sides will be going for it, knowing that it is a great opportunity for one of them to progress to the quarter-finals of a European competition.
