Among the highlights include Manchester United going on the road to face Sherrif Tiraspol, who made headlines last season in Europe by conquering eventual Champions League winners Real Madrid, while Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma outfit will look to bounce back from last week’s shock defeat when they play host to Finnish minnows HJK Helsinki. In-form Portuguese side Braga chase a seventh straight victory when they entertain Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin and Real Sociedad look to make it six points from six when Cypriot Cup champions Omonia roll into town – read on below as our expert football tipsters provide Europa League predictions for every Matchday, along with a multi for each week.
Europa League Predictions This Week
Roma vs HJK Prediction: Roma win to nil at $1.66 at bet365
Roma may have won just one of their last four games, but they are a different beast at home, going unbeaten in their last 14 games at the Stadio Olimpico dating back to January. Roma have kept five clean sheets in their last six home games, winning four and they’re tipped to comfortably cruise past Finnish outfit HJK Helsinki, who have failed to score a single goal in five of their last seven European outings (not including qualifiers). HJK have just one win over their last seven road trips in Europe and that was over an Armenian team. Roma should produce a shut-out at home to get their Europa League campaign back on track.
Real Sociedad vs Omonia Prediction: Real Sociedad win to nil at $1.66 with bet365
Real Sociedad are flying high after their upset win over Man United at Old Trafford last week and they can make it six points from six when they host out-of-form Cypriot Cup champions Omonia. Sociedad’s last three wins have been to nil and they will back their defence to produce another shut-out of an Omonia team who have lost three of their last four games in all competitions. Omonia suffered a poor 3-0 loss at home to Sheriff Tiraspol last week and the Moldovan side are one of the weaker sides on the road. Doesn’t bode well for this clash, so we’re happy to back Sociedad in the win to nil market.
Sheriff Tiraspol vs Manchester United Prediction: Man United win to nil at $1.80 with bet365
— Manchester United (@ManUtd) September 14, 2022
Man United appear to have turned a corner, but they did suffer a small setback last week in their Europa League opener, going down 1-0 at home to Real Sociedad. However, the Red Devils conceded an unlucky penalty and they did keep a clean sheet in their last two away matches in the EPL to Leicester and Southampton. Sheriff of course made headlines in the Champions League last season with a victory over eventual champions Real Madrid, but their chances of creating similar shockwaves again in the Europa League is low. United to bounce back with an away win and clean sheet.
Real Betis vs Ludogorets Prediction: Betis win to nil at $2.12 at Unibet
Real Betis have been on fire to start the season, winning five of their six La Liga games and only falling 2-1 to reigning champions Real Madrid in that time. Manuel Pellegrini’s side are coming off a brilliant 1-0 victory over Villarreal at the weekend, meaning they’ve won all three of their home games this season without conceding a single goal. The Spanish outfit should prove too strong for Ludogorets, who are having a strong season in Bulgaria, but struggle on the road in Europe. Indeed, Ludogorets are winless in their last seven Europa League away games and lost to the likes of Shamrock Rovers on the road earlier this campaign. Backing Betis to win and keep another clean sheet.
Braga vs Union Berlin Prediction: Braga win & under 2.5 goals at $5.00 with Unibet
Union Berlin may be leading the Bundesliga, but they aren’t creating many chances in attack and Braga have the ability to take advantage and grind out a win at home here. Braga have been on fire this season and bring a six-game winning streak into this encounter, while they have an intimidating record at home in Europe, losing just three of their last 24 games (winning 16 and drawing five). Union were bundled out of the Conference League group stage last season and were toppled by Union Saint-Gilloise in their opening game in the EL last week. Under 2.5 goals has landed in seven of Braga’s last eight Europa League games and the last four straight at home, so backing the hosts at good value for a low-scoring triumph.
Qarabag vs Nantes Prediction: Qarabag to win & both teams to score at $5.00 with Unibet
Both these teams have been involved in some entertaining fixtures lately, both domestically and in their Europa League openers. Nantes play an attacking brand of football, which saw them conquer Olympiakos 2-1 at home last week, while Qarabag went down 2-1 to Freiburg. Qarabag will be stronger at home in Baku, where they have scored at least one goal in 15 of their last 18 games. Nantes aren’t the best travellers either, winning just two of their last 11 games on the road in all competitions. Decent value in backing Qarabag to prevail at home in a high-scoring affair.
