With Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur having booked their spots in an all-English UEFA Champions League final, Arsenal and Chelsea are on course to face off in the UEFA Europa League final. Thursday presents an opportunity for the Gunners to down a Valencia side which they already lead 3-1 on aggregate, as well as a chance for the Blues to capitalise on the away goal they scored in a 1-1 semifinal first leg draw against Die Adler.
Valencia (1) vs. Arsenal (3) Betting Tips and Options (21:00 SAST)
Valencia have home ground advantage in the second leg of their semifinal against Arsenal. However, even at the Mestalla, it will be difficult to topple a 3-1 deficit against a Gunners side with everything to lose.
Unai Emery's men have only a slim chance of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League through a top four Premier League finish. As a result, winning the Europa League has become their best hope. Valencia lost three games in a row to leave their own Champions League qualifying campaign in ruins before beating Huesca 6-2.
If you are not confident of betting on a winner, it might be worth betting on over 3.5 goals at 2.50. Otherwise, here are some other bets available to you for the second leg:
Chelsea (1) vs. Eintracht Frankfurt (1) Betting Tips and Options (21:00 SAST)
Chelsea did well to recover from conceding early, snatching an away goal in the first leg against Eintracht Frankfurt. The Blues are likely to win the second now that they are back on familiar ground at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have won seven and drawn two of their last nine home matches. They are the UEFA Europa League's highest scorers this season with Die Adler second on that list. Over 2.5 goals might be worth a shot at 1.67.
