UEFA Europa League Round of 8: Leg 2 Matches to Wager On | Soccer Betting

RB Leipzig +155 at Atalanta +160   

  • When: Thursday, April 14 at 12:45 pm ET

Neither team scored an advantage in the first leg. Luis Muriel knocked in a goal for Atalanta at minute 17. In minute 58, David Zappacosta countered with a goal for Leipzig.

Atalanta has a road goal. So if they keep Leipzig from scoring a goal, the Serie A squad would win the aggregate. But the home team in this isn’t playing well. Atalanta followed up the draw versus Leipzig with a 2-1 loss to Sassuolo. RBL gets the win. 

Soccer Pick: RB Leipzig  

Eintracht Frankfurt +1 ½ -123 at Barcelona -1 ½ -103

  • When: Thursday, April 14 at 3:00 pm ET

In the first leg, home team Barcelona accomplished what they wanted. Barca escaped Frankfurt with a road goal in a 1-1 draw

The pressure is on the Bundesliga squad to get it done. Frankfurt isn’t in great form. The German League team shows 3 draws and a couple of losses in their last 5. The road team in this lost their last match to Freiburg, a game they probably should have won since it happened on their pitch.

Barcelona has won 4-of-5 with the draw against their Europa League rivals. Since this is at Camp Nou, Barcelona gets the nod to cover. 

Soccer Pick: Barcelona -1 ½  

West Ham United +225 at Lyon +114 

  • When: Thursday, April 14 at 3:00 pm ET

West Ham had a chance to get up a goal or two against Lyon in the first leg. But the English Premier League squad didn’t play well enough and instead faces their rival on the road down a road goal.

West Ham fell to Brentford by 2 goals in their last. The match happened on April 10. Although West Ham had been playing well throughout this season, Lyon is catching the road team on a down form cycle. 

The home team offers slight overlay odds. West Ham shouldn’t challenge Lyon. Expect at least a goal victory. Don’t be surprised if Lyon wins by 2. 

Soccer Pick: Lyon  

SC Braga +265 at Glasgow Rangers -101

  • When: Thursday, April 14 at 3:00 pm ET

Braga is on fire. The road team in this has won 4 straight with a draw against AS Monaco. One of the last 4 wins includes beating Glasgow 1-0 in the last head-to-head. 

Glasgow figures to play better on their pitch. But Braga comes from Portuguese Liga where they take on teams like Porto, Sporting CP, and Benfica on a weekly basis. 

The odds make the road team more than playable. Go for the money and back Braga. 

Soccer Pick: SC Braga
