Villarreal have no option other than to attack when they welcome Porto to El Madrigal on Thursday night.
With the Yellow Submarine needing to score at least four times in order to prevent an all-Portuguese final, progress seems unlikely.
Porto are favourites to win the competition overall and bwin offers odds of 9/20 on Andre Villas Boas’ side to take their impressive domestic form to the next level.
The Portuguese champions show no signs of slowing down and only need to grab one away goal to ensure that the tie is all but over. Currently unbeaten away from home in the competition, they can be backed to continue this run at 21/50.
And with Falcao Garcia having struck up a destructive strike partnership with Hulk, the likelihood of the game being a high scoring affair is considerable.
The Colombian and Brazilian pair have scored more than 60 goals in all competitions this season between them and have ensured that Porto are the Europa League’s top scorers with 34 goals.
As such, Europa League betting fans could be drawn to odds of 4/1 on four goals being scored in the match, while betting on a repeat of the first leg and going for five or more would see a £10 bet return £45.
The first goal scorer markets are also likely to come under intense scrutiny from football betting fans.
Having found the net on four occasions in the first leg, betting on Falcao to score at any time at 7/5 is tempting. His strike partner Hulk can be backed at odds of 17/10.
A £10 bet on the Liga Zon Sagres top scorer to find the back of the net in the game returns £27.
Even with a massive deficit to overcome, the Spanish outfit should feel confident at home, as they have won all seven of their home matches in the competition, scoring 20 and conceding one in the process.
Betting on Villarreal to win the match will see punters collect £25 from a £10 bet.
They certainly have the strikers capable of leading them to victory, with Guiseppe Rossi and Nilmar a dangerous pairing. At bwin they are currently 9/2 and 11/2 respectively to score the game’s first goal.
As an outside bet, punters might be tempted to back Cani – who scored the opening goal in the first leg – to do the same tomorrow night. His odds of 14/1 would see a £10 bet return a tidy £150.
