Atletico Madrid can end Aris’ dreams of Europa League qualification

| 30.11.2010

When Aris and Atletico Madrid met on matchday one of the Europa League, the Spanish club were 12/1 third favourites to win the Europa League.

But a shock 1-0 defeat in Greece to a side that are yet to lose at home in Europe has seen Atletico struggle in Group B and the reigning Europa League holders are in danger of missing out on qualification if they lose to Aris on Wednesday.

Match Odds

Aris have lost both of their away matches in the Europa League this season, but only by a single goal margin and the Greek club have the ability to register their first win on the road and are a massive 8/1 to do so.

Atletico lost at home to Espanyol on the weekend but do average exactly two goals a game at home in La Liga this season, and a 2-1 result for Atletico is priced at 7/1.

Only five goals have been scored in the four Aris Europa League games and if the Greek side can’t keep the forward duo of Sergio Aguero and Digo Forlan quiet, the Greek side could find themselves on the end of a rout.

Atletico have scored 10 goals in their last four matches and are 7/1 to beat Aris 3-0.

Rosenborg vs Bayer Leverkusen

Leverkusen know they must win tonight to confirm qualification and the German side are unbeaten in their last six games.

Rosenborg head into the game on the back of a three match winless run and are as big as 11/5 to win at home against the team that hammered them 4-0 in Leverkusen.

Aside from that 4-0 win on matchday one, Leverkusen have struggled in front of goal in Europe, scoring just twice in their last three games and a 1-0 win for Leverkusen is priced at 5/1.

A £10 stake on Atletico and Leverkusen both winning 1-0 would return £420. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
