Thursday's Europa League predictions including Monaco vs. Real Sociedad

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Thursday's Europa League fixtures, including Monaco vs. Real Sociedad.


Midtjylland vs. Braga (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Braga will travel to Denmark to face FC Midtjylland at the MCH Arena in the penultimate round of Europa League group games on Thursday evening.

The visitors currently sit top of Group F on nine points, whilst their hosts are four points behind in third but still have a good chance of qualifying for the knockout rounds.

We say: FC Midtjylland 1-2 Braga


Whilst Midtjylland produced that impressive 1-0 win in their previous European game, they have lost their last two matches in the Danish Superliga - hardly ideal preparations for this important encounter.

We expect Braga to build on the confidence they will have gained from their big victory at the weekend and overcome the hosts' home advantage to secure a narrow win.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Red Star vs. Ludogorets (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Red Star Belgrade welcome Ludogorets Razgrad to the Rajko Mitic Stadium for the penultimate round of Europa League group games on Thursday evening.

The hosts lost top spot after a surprise defeat in the previous game and must now ensure they beat the group underdogs.

We say: Red Star Belgrade 2-0 Ludogorets Razgrad


Despite a weakened defence after those two red cards last time out, Red Star should still have enough to comfortably dispatch the group minnows. We are backing a comfortable 2-0 home victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Galatasaray vs. Marseille (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Seeking to end a run of four consecutive draws in the Europa League, Marseille travel to Galatasaray on matchday five in Group E.

Jorge Sampaoli's men sit third in the group amid their streak of stalemates, whereas the Turkish hosts top the group with eight points to their name.

We say: Galatasaray 1-0 Marseille


Marseille may struggle to get into the right headspace for this encounter following the weekend's unsavoury events, and with the absent Payet at the heart of their attacks week in week out, Sampaoli's men are fighting an uphill battle to claim a first continental win of the season.

Galatasaray have produced defensive masterclass after defensive masterclass in Europe this term, and we are backing the group leaders to march to another narrow win as Marseille's draw streak ends in dismal fashion.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Lokomotiv vs. Lazio (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Lazio will aim to keep the pressure on Europa League Group E leaders Galatasaray when they travel to Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday night.

Maurizio Sarri's men sit second in the section with five points to their name, while their winless Russian hosts sit rock bottom of the rankings.

We say: Lokomotiv Moscow 0-1 Lazio


With no fewer than three creative midfielders absent for Lokomotiv, their chances of adding to a paltry two strikes in the Europa League are certainly slim against Sarri's Lazio.

The visitors will also continue to struggle for attacking inspiration if Immobile is not deemed fit to feature from the start, but Lazio should still nick the odd goal to march to victory here.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

B. Leverkusen vs. Celtic (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to secure all three points and qualify for the last 32 of the Europa League when they host Celtic in their penultimate Group G encounter on Thursday evening.

The Hoops, meanwhile, could move into the top two with a victory at the BayArena, if Real Betis were to drop points against Ferencvaros.

We say: Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 Celtic


Celtic were well beaten against Leverkusen in September, but with the hosts to be without a few key players on Thursday, a closer affair could be on the cards this time around.

Nevertheless, the Germans will be the favourites for this contest and still have enough quality in their squad to secure all three points at the BayArena.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Real Betis vs. Ferencvaros (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Real Betis could consolidate second place in Group G of the Europa League if they can beat Ferencvaros in their penultimate match on Thursday evening.

The hosts have lost only one of their last seven home games across all competitions, while the visitors have won each of their last three away matches by an aggregate score of 13-0.

We say: Real Betis 2-0 Ferencvaros


With more riding on this fixture for Real Betis than already-eliminated Ferencvaros, the hosts will be the favourites to come away with all three points on Thursday.

Pellegrini is expected to name a strong side, which should have too much quality for their Hungarian counterparts.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Dinamo Zagreb vs. Genk (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Group H of the Europa League will be back in action this week as Dinamo Zagreb aim to go one step closer to securing their qualification to the knockout phase of the competition.

However, the visitors Genk will have the opportunity to overtake them in the table if they are able to be victorious on Thursday night.

We say: Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 Genk


A victory for Dinamo Zagreb could prove to be enough to progress if the other result goes their way and that should be enough incentive to get them over the line in this fixture.

Genk have struggled defensively throughout the competition and that is likely going to be a sticking point once again in this particular fixture.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Rapid Vienna vs. West Ham (Thursday, 5.45pm)

West Ham United's Europa League adventure will continue when they travel to Rapid Vienna on Thursday, where a victory will result in them winning the group.

For the hosts, they must earn three points to stand any chance of progressing into the next round, placing a lot of importance on their performance.

We say: Rapid Vienna 0-3 West Ham United


This game means more to the hosts than it does to the Hammers, but that does not mean that it will be an easy one for them to secure a point in.

West Ham have a much stronger squad and plenty of options available due to the depth in the squad, which is why they should be able to get another victory here.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Rangers vs. Sparta Prague (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Giovanni van Bronckhorst will take charge of his first game as Rangers manager on Thursday night, as his new side welcome Sparta Prague to Ibrox for their crucial Europa League encounter.

The two sides – who are level on four points in Group A – head into this contest off the back of disappointing domestic defeats at the weekend, and another loss for either team in Glasgow could end their hopes of advancing to the knockout rounds.

We say: Rangers 2-1 Sparta Prague


Both teams can seal their place in the last 32 of the Europa League with a victory on Thursday; however, a draw would be more beneficial to the visitors who have the better head-to-head record as things stand.

With a new manager at the helm for a European night under the lights at Ibrox, the home supporters will act as a 12th man for Rangers, which could help to get them over the line and secure a narrow victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Brondby vs. Lyon (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Lyon will be looking to maintain their 100% record in the Europa League group stage, when they travel to Denmark to face Brondby in their penultimate Group G match on Thursday night.

The hosts, meanwhile, sit at the bottom of the group but a surprise victory at the Brondby Stadion would boost their chances of finishing in the top two ahead of Rangers and Sparta Prague.

We say: Brondby 0-2 Lyon


Even if Lyon do decide to rotate their side, they will still be the strong favourites to come away with all three points on Thursday night.

The hosts still have something to play for, so they will likely throw everything at their French opponents, though the visitors should have no problems in securing a routine win.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

PSV vs. Sturm Graz (Thursday, 8.00pm)

PSV Eindhoven play host to Sturm Graz on Thursday evening knowing that victory will keep their Group B fate in their own hands.

While the home side are focused on trying to qualify for the Europa League knockout stages, Sturm Graz need all three points to stay in the hunt for a Europa Conference League spot.

We say: PSV Eindhoven 2-0 Sturm Graz


Having rediscovered some form in recent matches, we feel that this could be a comfortable 90 minutes for PSV. While Graz have the freedom to go all out for victory, an early goal for the home side may derail them in their tracks.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Monaco vs. Real Sociedad (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Monaco head into their Group B fixture with Real Sociedad on Thursday evening knowing that victory will secure their place in the Europa League knockout stages.

While Sociedad are yet to lose any of their four group fixtures, defeat on Thursday may leave them requiring all three points on matchday six.

We say: Monaco 1-1 Real Sociedad


With Graz still to come on Matchday six, Kovac may not risk a defeat in search of all three points. With Sociedad potentially adopting the same mindset, do not be surprised to see this contest end in a low-scoring draw.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Leicester vs. Legia (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Separated by just a point and a place in the Group C table, Leicester City welcome Polish champions Legia Warsaw to the King Power Stadium on Thursday, for a potentially decisive Europa League encounter.

While Legia would be confirmed in the top two if they win and group rivals Spartak Moscow do not, the Foxes must avoid defeat and hope Napoli falter if they are to avoid either an early exit or finishing third - which means demotion to the Conference League.

We say: Leicester City 2-0 Legia Warsaw


With their visitors in complete disarray, this is the time for the Foxes to strike in Group C, as they face a tough trip to Naples in their final game.

Even if Leicester make a handful of changes, their squad players are more than capable of picking off an ailing Legia side which will surely sit back and hope to survive for 90 minutes.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Olympiacos vs. Fenerbahce (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Olympiacos have the opportunity to guarantee their progression into the next round of the Europa League with a victory on Thursday when they host Fenerbahce.

However, the visitors could leapfrog them in the table and force things to go down to the final game of the group if they can secure a win.

We say: Olympiacos 1-1 Fenerbahce


There is a lot on the line for both teams heading into this match and that pressure could lead to quite a cagey affair taking place.

A draw would see both teams continue to battle for progression into the next round in the final match of the group, which is something that might happen between two even squads.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Frankfurt vs. Antwerp (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Thursday will see two teams at the opposite ends of Group D compete as table-toppers Eintracht Frankfurt face Royal Antwerp in their latest Europa League class.

The hosts have already secured progression into the next round while it is impossible for the visitors to qualify, making this a game of pride more than anything.

We say: Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 Royal Antwerp


It is hard to look past the hosts in this particular fixture considering the fact they have already wrapped up their qualification into the next round.

With the chance to secure a top-place finish Eintracht Frankfurt will no doubt be throwing everything at this, which should be enough to take them through.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
