The European football action continues unabated this week and tonight sees some eagerly anticipated clashes involving English teams in The Europa League. William Hill continue to tempt the punter with some very generous prices and offers.
Tottenham Hotspur travel to the east European republic of Moldova, full of confidence after returning to winning ways with a weekend victory over Aston Villa. FC Sheriff will be the opposition, and Spurs will be confident of sending a second string squad to face the home side. The Moldovans shouldn’t give the North Londoners much of a challenge, at least on paper, and the odds certainly reflect this, with William Hill offering 11/1 for an FC Sheriff victory and 2/7 for a Spurs win. A tempting offer is 3/1 for a Tottenham win coupled with Erik Lamela to open the scoring. A draw is not the likeliest of outcomes, and a price of 4/1 certainly reflects this.
Swansea contine their European adventure with the visit of Russian side Kuban. The Swans are looking for a clean sweep against all the opponents in their group, and with the 1-0 victory over St Gallen in their previous European encounter, this is certainly a distinct possibility. As expected, Swansea are firm favourites to emerge victorious after 90 minutes with odds of 2/5. Should the Russians inflict a surprise defeat on the home side, a price of 15/2 is up for grabs. A draw in this match isn’t an unreasonable outcome at 10/3 however the home side should prove too strong for the visitors to overcome. A favourite bet is for Michu to score coupled with a Swansea victory at 7/4. This could well turn out to be an interesting match.
Wigan are the third English side seeing European action today, and face a sterner test with the visit of Russian outfit Rubin Kazan. The Russian side features regularly in European competitions and consistently ride high in the Russian domestic top tier. They enter this tie as firm favourites, and may well prove too strong for the Latics. William Hill certainly share this view, and offer 5/4 for a Rubin win, with a Wigan victory good value at 11/5. The home side will need to raise their game, and the thought of leading their group with a win over the Russian outfit will surely boost their confidence. Should Wigan score, Nick Powell is certain to be in the thick of it, and the odds of him scoring in a Wigan Victory is a tempting 6/1. Rubin hit-man Gokdeniz Karadeniz is a prolific goalscorer in the domestic game and a price of 9/1 for him to feature in the scoring with a Kazan win is also great value.
The action can be followed live, with FC Sheriff v Spurs and Swansea v Kuban filling the ITV4 evening schedule from 18:00, whilst Wigan v Rubin Kazan is live on BT Sport 1.
