The Europa League action continued this week as several British clubs took to European playing fields across the continent, and although some fared better than others, there can be no denying that the excitement was the same across the board.
Tottenham, who feature on Thursday night in action against Dinamo Tbilisi, are one of the favourites to challenge for the title this season, particularly considering their experience in making quite a decent foray in the competition last time around.
With Spurs bolstering their squad over the past few weeks with the signings of Roberto Soldado and Paulinho, it’s likely that they will pose an even more dangerous threat this time around. In fact, new signing Soldado who scored in their opening Premier League match against Crystal Palace is 11/4 with Boylesports to open the scoring on Thursday.
Leon Blanche, Head of Communications at Boylesports told SportsNewsIreland: “Tottenham will be determined to progress in the Europa League this season having reached the quarter-finals in last season’s tournament.”
He added: “Swansea midfielder Pablo Hernandez reckons that they could go all the way in the Europa League and they are currently 40/1 with Boylesports to lift the Europa League trophy for the first ever time.”
Of course, the White Hart Lane faithful will be hoping they fare as well as their Premier League counterparts Swansea who ran out very comfortable victors over Malmo in the third qualifying round. Swansea are 4/11 with Boylesports to record a win over Petrolul in the 1st leg of the play-off round.
Wilfried Bony who scored a consolation goal against Manchester United in the Premier League is 3/1 to open the scoring whilst Michu, who scored a glut of goals for the Swans last season, is priced at 7/2 with Boylesports.
Granted, Celtic didn’t fare too well on Wednesday night as they went down against Shakter Karagandy as an early 12th minute strike and a late 77th minute goal was enough for their Kazakh opponents to triumph. And so, unfortunately, their European journey looks to already be at an end.
