Here’s my pick of the Europa League action tonight:
Swansea vs Malmo
Michael Laudrup’s Cup-winning Swans have impressed everyone on British shores over the last few seasons, and now they enter the European mix keen to continue their growth as a fine footballing outfit. They face a top Swedish side who found no shame in embarassing Hibernian in the last round, and although the Swedish City hosted the Women’s Euro Championships they’ve proved they’re man enough to compete with Europe’s Elite. Goals will come flying in at both ends in this footballing showcase in Wales.
Dinamo Minsk vs Trabzonspor
The Russians and the Turks have always had a fantastic European pedigree and despite these two clubs having relatively low European experience compared to their compatriots, they’ve already proven themselves to be far from shy infront of goal with the rest of Europe casting their beady eye on proceedings. With both Anzhi and Galatasaray investing heavily in their respective country’s, it’s time for these two sides to prove European success doesn’t have to come at a cost and a good old fashioned hammer and tongs cup tie looks sure to ensue here, with goals aplenty of course!
Slask Wroclaw vs Club Brugge
Two of Europe’s most vastly improving nations see representatives do battle here as Poland’s Wroclaw face Club Brugge of Belgium as they attempt to qualify for one of Europe’s toughest competitions. Both the Polish and the Belgian national teams will be sure of a rich and fruitful future at international level with the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Eden Hazard as well as their more than able supporting cast’s including lesser known talents from these two sides. With the entire continent looking on, it’s games like this that hero’s are made and futures secured, so there is sure to be plenty of chances for either side and players to make a name for themselves!
The treble pays a massive 9/2 at Betfred, home of Goals Galore!
