Football bettors have two exciting UEFA Europa League semifinal first leg matches to choose from on Thursday as Chelsea visit Eintracht Frankfurt and Arsenal host Valencia. I am expecting lots of goals in both matches.
Arsenal vs. Valencia Betting Tips and Options (21h00 SAST)
Neither Arsenal nor Valencia has been in great form recently and it is difficult to pick a winner for this semifinal first leg at the Emirates Stadium. Both teams are strong in front of goal, however, and this is a good opportunity to tip BTTS. At odds of 1.80, there is value in this bet.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Chelsea Betting Tips and Options (21h00 SAST)
Chelsea will be up against difficult opponents on the road, but Maurizio Sarri's men have been formidable throughout their Europa League campaign and have the in-form Olivier Giroud to turn to. It's too tight to call a winner in this fixture but given that both teams have seen plenty of high-scoring matches in Europe already, I would advise punters to put money on over 2.5 goals at 2.00.
