AC Milan, Arsenal and Zenit have been impressive to date and will look to maintain their perfect record while Everton find themselves in a must win scenario after a very disappointing start.
Europa League Matchday 1 Previews
Red Star v Arsenal – (Fri 4:00am)
Wenger has rolled with a virtual second string line up in this competition but it has more than gotten the job done. The slower back line of Mertesacker and Holding has left them exposed at the back but they have more than made up for it going forward. Walcott and Giroud have struck a chord while Wilshire and Elneny have taken advantage of the game time. Red Star have been a goal scoring machine as of late with 9 goals in their last two outings and you will want to keep an eye on Pesic and Adzic. They will take it to the Gunners and it makes for a very open encounter. Arsenal may have 4 clean sheets in their last 5 league games but with an alternate backline they wil be scored on in every group game in this competition.
Best: Both Teams To Score – YES ($1.66)
Value: Over 3.5 goals ($3.00)
AC Milan v AEK – (Fri 6:05am)
The Italian side have conceded multiple goals in each of their last 4 games – unheard of for a side whose history has been built on defence. AEK will be very keen do defend but holding out for 90 minutes at the San Siro is a near impossible task. Milan have 11 goals in 3 home games at home in this competition this season (including qualifiers) and AEK have never travelled well in European competition. They have never won on Italian soil and The Wolf is happy to lay them all day long.
Best: AC Milan WIN ($1.40)
Value: HT/FT – Milan/Milan ($1.90)
Everton v Lyon – (Fri 6:05am)
The troublesome times continue at Goodison Park with just 2 wins from their last 11 competitive matches. They sit dead last in their group and now host a free scoring Lyon outfit. The Toffees are also hindered by the fact that Niasse is ineligible for this competition and really need someone to step up. They will need multiple goals just to salvage a point according to The Wolf who says Diaz, Fekir and Depay will be very hard to shut down. Over, Overs, Overs!
Best: Over 2.5 goals ($1.72)
Value: Lyon Over 1.5 goals ($2.35)
