Football Acca : Arsenal and Everton among our best bets for the Europa League
It’s Matchday Five of this season’s Europa League with a number of groups still wide open.
In terms of British interest, Arsenal are already through, and Everton are unfortunately out.
The Ladbrokes News crew run through the fixtures and select some top tips.
Koln v Arsenal
The Gunners have qualified already so Arsene Wenger – as usual – will likely rotate quite heavily here.
The squad is packed with talent, though, and the likes of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are top quality at this level.
Koln have been pretty abysmal all season. The Bundesliga side are bottom of Group H in Europe and have won just once at home in all competitions.
Everton v Atalanta
Obviously, Everton have already been eliminated. However, that may present an opportunity to bag some value in this game.
Atalanta sit top of the group and start the match as 5/4 favourites. But the Serie A side have failed to win away from home all season.
The Toffees have bagged a couple of decent results in their last two games under David Unsworth. An incredible last-gasp 3-2 win over Watford was followed up with another late leveller at Crystal Palace.
Unsworth will likely rotate here with Wayne Rooney and Ashley Williams pushing for a recall. The Blues are 11/5 to win. At Goodison Park, they might just do it.
Lazio v Vitesse Arnhem
Lazio have been hugely impressive under Simone Inzaghi this season. The Rome outfit have surprised many with their breathless, attacking football.
The Biancocelesti are already through with four wins from four. That won’t stop them trying to win again here. Lazio are 1/2 favourites. That’s more of an acca selection than anything, though.
Instead, the best play here is a goals-based bet. Especially considering how attacking Vitesse are and how much the Eredivisie side needs to win.
Lazio to win and Over 2.5 Goals is a generous-looking 11/10.
