UEFA Europa League Top Games | Soccer Betting

FC Porto +205 vs Lazio +124

  • When: Thursday, Feb. 24

This happens at Olimpico Stadium, which is the main reason Lazio is the chalk. Based on form, though, Porto is the team to back.

Lazio shows a single victory, 2 losses, and a draw in their last 4. Porto has won 4-of-5 with a draw. One of the victories was a 2-1 win over Lazio in the first leg. Will Porto hang back and play defense in this? The guess is no, they won’t. Porto understands that road goals mean something. So they will play to win.  

Soccer Pick: Porto  

RB Leipzig +155 vs Real Sociedad +165 

  • When: Thursday, Feb. 24

These two drew 2-2 in the last head-to-head. So Sociedad has Leipzig where they want them. 

But overall, Leipzig is in better form. RBL has won 3-of-5 with a draw and a loss. The loss happened against Bayern Munich. An aggressive Leipzig gets the victory. 

Soccer Pick: RB Leipzig  

Atalanta BC +108 vs Olympic Piraeus +230 

  • When: Thursday, Feb. 24

In the first head-to-head, Atalanta beat Olympiakos 2-1. The match happened at Atalanta. Playing the second leg on their field, we must expect Olympic Piraeus to step it up.

Based on the odds, Atalanta should dominate. They won’t. The Serie A squad has a single victory, over Olympiakos, in their last 5. The loss to post-Dusan Vlahovic Fiorentina in their last is a sign Atalanta isn’t playing their best. At the odds, the home team is an overlay.  

Soccer Pick: Olympic Piraeus  

Sevilla FC +110 vs Dinamo Zagreb +240

  • When: Thursday, Feb. 24

Sevilla dominated Dinamo in the first leg, beating the home squad in this 3-1. With a 2-goal lead, Sevilla mustn’t throw caution to wind in this match.

Dinamo Zagreb has a shot to win this outright. But Sevilla won’t just allow Zagreb to score goals. Instead, the Spanish Primera Division team will play smart, controlling possession and playing keep away. A draw is a real possibility. 

Soccer Pick: Draw  

Borussia Dortmund -142 vs Glasgow Rangers +330

  • When: Thursday, Feb. 24

Dortmund’s form should be on the turnaround after a huge 6-0 beating the road chalk laid onto Monchengladbach in their last. Dortmund should be ready to punish Glasgow. 

But the Rangers beat Dortmund 4-2 in the last. Still, Glasgow knows they can lose and they’d win on the aggregate. So expect the Rangers to be ultra-conservative in this, yielding a goal and then coasting to a 1-goal loss, but a victory on the aggregate. At the odds, Dortmund is an overlay. 

Soccer Pick: Borussia Dortmund 

FC Barcelona +146 vs Napoli +170

  • When: Thursday, Feb. 24

In four Barcelona starts, Ferran Torres has 0 goals but 2 assists. So Torres has already made his mark with his new team.

On paper, Barca is the better team. Dest, Busquets, Pedri, Frenkie de Jong and Luuk de Jong, Dembele, and Torres give Barcelona plenty of options. 

Napoli is solid but they drew against Cagliari in their last. Barca dominated Valencia 4-1 in their last. Barcelona is the play. 

Soccer Pick: Barcelona
