Arsenal to beat Benfica @ 17/20
The Gunners were the better team in last week’s 1-1 draw in Rome and are taken to come out on top in the second leg in Greece. Bukayo Saka’s sixth goal of the season cancelled out Pizzi’s penalty when these sides met at Stadio Olimpico, but Arsenal really should have claimed victory, with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang surprisingly wasting a number of good chances. Saka said: “We felt like we had the game in our hands from start to finish, we dominated them and we just needed to put our chances away.”
Rangers to beat Royal Antwerp @ 5/11
Borna Barisic’s spot-kick double ensured Steven Gerrard’s team claimed a 4-3 lead from a roller-coaster first-leg clash in Belgium and the Light Blues are backed to finish the job off in Glasgow in our Europa League predictions. Gerrard was keen to cut out the defensive lapses in concentration which marred that thrilling triumph and a smoother success is anticipated if they can achieve that feat. Third-choice goalkeeper Ortwin De Wolf is likely to start for Antwerp, who have several other players ruled out.
Leicester to beat Slavia Prague @ 1/2
There were few chances in the first leg, with Harvey Barnes having a close-range effort saved by Slavia goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar, while Nico Stanciu’s second-half drive was turned over by Kasper Schmeichel. However, Brendan Rodgers has vowed his side will rediscover their killer instinct in the rematch, saying: “We’re in a good position and now we can really attack the second leg at home.” The Foxes look to have the extra quality, especially in attack, so they are worth siding with at King Power Stadium.
Hoffenheim to beat Molde @ 1/3
Molde deserve plenty of credit for battling back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 when these sides met at El Madrigal in Villarreal but Hoffenheim were left kicking themselves for not wrapping up a convincing victory. The German outfit had numerous opportunities to score more goals and looked on a different level for much of that match. They enjoyed a confidence-boosting 4-0 Bundesliga triumph over Werder Bremen on Sunday and should settle this tie in emphatic fashion on home turf at Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
Club Brugge to beat Dynamo Kyiv @ 6/5
It was 1-1 when these teams met in a scrappy contest in the Ukraine, with a lack of quality easily forgiven due to the freezing weather conditions which forced the kick-off time to be brought forward. Brugge are rated in better shape for the return fixture, having established themselves as runaway leaders in Belgium this term. They performed well when third in a tough Champions League group which featured Borussia Dortmund, Lazio and Zenit and have the strength in depth to challenge in this tournament.
