Topic: Europa League picks 17/3

Thursday:


Manchester City vs Din. Kiev

Manchester City lost the first leg 2-0 in Ukraine and they face a battle against Dinamo Kiev in the second. I believe it will be close.

Under 2.5 goals.


PSG vs Benfica

Paris St Germain lost 2-1 in the first leg and I believe they could struggle in the second leg as well. The French side must attack and that will open it up for Benfica.

Over 2.5 goals.


Sp. Moscow vs Ajax

Spartak Moscow on 1-0 in Holland and I believe the Dutch side will struggle in Russia against this side.

Sp. Moscow win.


Zenit vs Twente

Twente won 3-0 at home in the first leg and Zenit will be desperate to attack in this one. Should be an entertaining game.

Over 2.5 goals.


FC Porto vs CSKA Moscow

FC Porto won the first leg 0-1 in Russia and I believe the Portuguese giants will be able to win this one at home as well.

FC Porto win.


Liverpool vs Braga

Liverpool lost 1-0 in Portugal against Braga in the first leg, but I expect the Reds to have no problems winning at Anfield.

Liverpool win with 0-1 handicap.


Rangers vs PSV

Rangers managed a goalless draw with PSV in Holland and I believe the Scottish giants will be able to win this one at Ibrox.

Rangers win.


Villarreal vs Leverkusen

Villarreal impressed with a 2-3 win in the first leg and I expect the Spanish side to win the second leg as well.

Villarreal win.
