Thursday’s BTTS accumulator comes courtesy of the Europa League qualifiers and we’re hoping to claim this 5/1 treble.
After a dramatic set of first round matches last week, we’re hoping for an equally exciting set of second round matches. With a place in qualifying round three up for grabs, motivation will be high. Let’s hope the number of goals scored will be too.
Our 5/1 Europa League treble is with Betfred, sign up and get on!
Hajduk Split V Koper. 6PM
It took just 29 minutes for these two teams to find the target in last week’s five-goal thriller at the SRC Bonifika and we think attack will be the aim of the day once more as Koper take a slender lead into this crucial clash in Croatia.
Hajduk might be trailing, but manager Damir Buric will have been pleased to see his side score two away goals in Slovenia and the hosts will fancy their chances of progressing. It has been a frantic start to the new campaign for the home club, who have also played rivals Dinamo Zagreb as well as their local derby against FC Split, but that should have prepared them nicely for this crucial encounter.
Nonetheless, the visitors have already shown their capabilities of finding the net against the Croatians and Rodolgo Vanoli’s men will be eager to get on the scoresheet here. They might have a lead to defend, but it’s far too small to sit back on their laurels.
We still think Hajduk will scrape a way through, even though Koper should score. Back goals at both ends.

Stromsgodset V Mlada Boleslav. 6PM
Bjorn Ingerbresten’s side claimed a surprise win on Czech soil last week and will now be confident about taking another vital step towards the group phase. However, the Norwegians must accept that the job is still only half complete and could be in for a difficult test against a very capable away side.
Mlada will have been gutted to lose last Thursday’s home leg, but Karel Jarolim’s side have a chance to make amends at the Marienlyst Stadion. They’ll be looking to veteran star Milan Baros to fire them through, and the former Czech international would be fancied to convert any chances that fall his way.
Boleslav will need to be wary of Stromsgodset’s frontline, though. The Tippeligaen outfit have scored goals for fun in recent weeks and should be particularly optimistic on home soil. Last week’s result will gee the crowd up too, which could be used to the home side’s advantage.
This outcome of this tie still hangs firmly in the balance. While we wouldn’t want to pick a winner, we do believe the smart money is on goals.

Linfield V Spartak Trnava. 7:45PM
Despite suffering defeat in their first leg trip to Slovakia, an away goal means that Linfield still have a slight chance of reaching the next stage of this year’s Europa League competition and will be hoping for a magical night at Windsor Park.
Warren Feeney’s men will still be considered underdogs, but goals shouldn’t be a problem on home soil. The Northern Irish outfit have scored in six straight matches and will be confident that the likes of Guy Bates and Andrew Waterworth can help fire them to success.
However, Trnava will be equally confident of goals and it would be a shock if Juraj Jarabek’s men were to fire a blank. They might not be the tournament’s strongest outfit but they are the superior team in this fixture and should score.
Assuming the visitors do score, we’re essentially getting odds of 4/5 for a home goal. That has to be tempting.
