More goalscorer betting tips for Thursday’s Europa League matches from leading tipster Form Labs. Who could find the back of the net and get you the wining goal from around Europe? Check out the preview and odds below.
Arsenal v Sporting Goalscorer Odds
Danny Welbeck has only featured fleetingly in the Premier League, but has started every one of Arsenal’s cup matches either domestically or in Europe this term – netting four goals from five matches in total as 75% of these came at the Emirates. In fact, the England international has actually netted five times in his last seven starts in this competition as Arsenal reached the semi-finals last term.
Welbeck should start from left with Aubameyang moving into the centre, which should pit him up against Sporting’s right-back. However, regular starter Stefan Ristovski is absent with injury, as Sporting have gone W5-D2-L2 with him in European action since he joined in August 2017 and W2-D1-L3 without. Indeed, the scores were still level between Arsenal and Sporting a couple of weeks ago before he came off at the break. Given Arsenal have plundered twice as many goals as anyone else in Group E so far, Welbeck ought to fancy his chances of adding to his tally at some stage.
Real Betis v AC Milan Goalscorer Odds
Gonzalo Higuain is set to miss out after tweaking his back at the weekend, while Samu Castillejo is suspended after his sending of when these two met last time. That ensures both Suso and Patrick Cutrone will start for the visitors, with the former enjoying a dynamite season as he leads Europe’s top five leagues for assists with eight already this term. He missed the poor first half against Real Betis two weeks ago, but in the last seven games where he’s featured for more than 45 minutes, the Spaniard has managed four goals and five assists. Meanwhile, Patrick Cutrone has scored five times this season from just 415 minutes of action (83 minutes per goal), including three in the Europa League from just 80 minutes (27 mpg) as he netted Milan’s only strike against Betis last time out. Both Suso and Cutrone are worthy options in the goalscorers markets, but Cutrone’s strike rate this season and the central role he’ll occupy here places him as our preferred candidate.
Rosenborg v Salzburg Goalscorer Odds
Salzburg remain unbeaten this season as they’ve won 19 of 23 games across all competitions, including all three in this tournament since the group stages while netting nine times. Munas Dabbur leads the Europe League goalscoring charts with five to his name already, registering a brace when these two met a couple of weeks back, working out at one every 48 minutes of action. Indeed, the visitors having been scoring for fun with as many as 25 goals racked up in their last eight road trips, while Rosenborg have proven Group B’s whipping boys as they’ve shipped seven goals and netted just one. The hosts have kept just the solitary clean sheet in their last eight across all competitions, and so Dabbur should feel confident of causing further misery.
Lazio v Marseille Goalscorer Odds
Marseille come into this clash having lost their last three as they’ve shipped eight goals, including a 3-1 defeat when Lazio came to town last month. They’ve already conceded seven times in the Europa League this term, which spells problems for them as Lazio have scored 17 goals across seven home matches in Europe since the start of last season, including 13 from four since the knockout rounds last term.
Ciro Immobile once again leads the way for Lazio in the goalscoring charts, following on from his stellar campaign last term, with nine goals in 2018/19 already. In fact, he has eight goals from 11 appearances in this competition since the start of last season, netting in all four such home games as he scored six times across these. Having scored the first of the game in three of Lazio’s last five matches prior to this game, he’s well primed to draw first blood.
Celtic v Leipzig Goalscorer Odds
Leipzig have come into some form as they’ve won seven of nine unbeaten matches across all competitions, netting 20 times across these matches. Although Timo Werner has taken recent headlines with six goals in as many games, he’s yet to feature in the Europa League this term and is unlikely to be risked this time around as he nurses a toe injury picked up at the weekend. Playmaker Emil Forsberg is definitely sidelined with a groin issue, while this match will probably come one too soon for the returning Jean-Kevin Augustin.
That should leave the goalscorers from the last clash between these two as the prime suspects to net again. However, while Bruma also netted past Celtic keeper Craig Gordon during Portugal’s recent friendly win in Glasgow, Matheus Cunha added another goal in the weekend defeat of Hertha and should be handed a further opportunity to impress here having netted in each of his last three starts.
