Sevilla to beat Roma @ Evens
Los Rojiblancos made hard work of overcoming CFR Cluj, drawing 0-0 in Spain following a 1-1 stalemate in Romania, but a record five wins in this competition, including a 2014 to 2016 hat-trick, shows they know how to improve as the knockout stages progress. Sevilla are certainly going well in La Liga, lying in third place after Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Atletico Madrid. Roma edged out Gent at the last-32 stage but are often vulnerable on the road and look worth opposing in our Europa League predictions.
Inter Milan to beat Getafe @ 9/10
The Nerazzurri suffered a hammer blow to their Serie A title hopes when losing 2-0 at Juventus on Sunday but that just may force Antonio Conte to focus even more on chasing silverware in this tournament. Romelu Lukaku scored in home and away wins over Ludogorets in the last round and strong spending in the past two transfer windows has given Inter the squad depth to challenge on multiple fronts. Getafe are no mugs but they did lose away to Basel during the group phase and Ajax in the previous round.
LASK Linz to draw with Man Utd @ 11/5
United are on the crest of a wave after an emotional 2-0 derby triumph stretched their unbeaten run to 10 matches but they put a lot into that clash with City and have another big Premier League test coming up at Tottenham three days after this game. That may force Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to ring the changes in Austria and LASK look solid enough to be competitive here in that case. The hosts topped Group D ahead of Sporting Lisbon, PSV and Rosenborg before accounting for AZ Alkmaar, so the Red Devils would no doubt be satisfied with an away draw.
Bayer Leverkusen to win at Rangers @ 23/20
Leverkusen were far from disgraced when third behind Juventus and Atletico Madrid in their Champions League group, winning two of their final three matches, and impressed when beating Porto twice after dropping down to this level. Former Ajax and Dortmund coach Peter Bosz has also steered his side to fourth place in the Bundesliga, with Saturday’s 4-0 thrashing of last season’s Europa League semi-finalists Eintracht Frankfurt making it 11 wins from 13 games in all competitions. Rangers did well to get past Braga but have laboured of late in domestic fixtures.
Olympiakos to draw with Wolves @ 11/5
Many pundits questioned Olympiakos’ commitment to this competition when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Arsenal after dropping down from the Champions League, but those sceptics were silenced in stunning fashion following a 2-1 extra-time triumph at Emirates Stadium which put the Greek leaders through on away goals. However, Wanderers will present a different, more disciplined challenge and we feel the English outfit can return home on level terms.
