Every 2 week on Thursday, the 2nd tier European teams are fighting for the Europa League trophy which give them the chance to qualify in the Champions League group stage next season. Chelsea, Arsenal, Sevilla and AC Milan are the favourites. Let’s analyze the most interesting matches of the round and find out the best value bets.

<h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/eintracht-frankfurt-vs-lazio-roma-3600086?mtid=1" target="_blank" title="Check Eintracht Frankfurt - Lazio Odds">Eintracht Frankfurt vs Lazio</a></h2><p>The host enter this match in fine form, beating Hannover 4-1 last weekend in the German Bundesliga, looking to consolidate their Europa League Group H leading spot. Despite being red carded in France in matchday 1, Eintracht managed to overcome the 1 goal deficit winning 2-1 with a late goal from their young striker Luka Jovic. On the other side, Lazio come into this game on the back of a 3-1 defeat to city rivals AS Roma. They saw their 5-match winning streak come to an end last weekend, so they are keen to bounce back and return home with the three points. They are dealing with 2 long term injuries (Jordan Lukaku and Radu Stefan) and that shouldn’t be a problem for the visitors. They won their UEL campaign opener 2-1 at home against Apollon and they have a great chance to win at least 1 point against the Germans. The 2 sides have never faced each other in the European competition. The hosts are unbeaten at home in the European competitions since 2006. We expect an exciting match with both teams contributing on the scoreboard. Best pick for the match: <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f&amp;f=2" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check this top rated Bookmaker!">Both teams to score at 1.72 with Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/rosenborg-bk-vs-rb-leipzig-3600085?mtid=1" target="_blank" title="Check Rosenborg - Leipzig Odds">Rosenborg vs RB Leipzig</a></h2><p>Rosenborg were very close to sharing the spoils with Celtic in Glasgow in matchday 1, but the Scottish reigning champs scored the winner goal in the dying minutes of the game earning the 3 points. Yussuf Poulsen scored a brace as RB Leipzig climbed to 6th in the Bundesliga standings with an impressive win away at Hoffenheim. They dramatically lost their 1st UEL match 3-2 to Salzburg so they will enter this match determined to win their 1st European game this season against Rosenborg trying to give their fans something to cheer for. The hosts will be without their top striker, Nicklas Bendtner and their young and talented defender Birger Meling, both injured. The visitors have no injury issues and they are expected to use their best starting XI. Best pick for the match: <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f&amp;f=2" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Check this top rated Bookmaker!">RB Leipzig to win at 1.8 with Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/fc-vorskla-poltava-vs-sporting-cp-3600094?mtid=1" target="_blank" title="Check Vorskla Poltava - Sporting Odds">Vorskla Poltava vs Sporting</a></h2><p>Despite losing many important players in the summer, Sporting kicked-off their domestic season in style winning 4 of their 6 Primeira Liga rounds. They also earned three points in their UEL group by beating Qarabag 2-0 on their turf two weeks ago and they are looking to add three points to their group E tally on Thursday by beating the Ukrainian side Worskla Poltava. The hosts were destroyed away in England by Arsenal, but they managed to avoid total humiliation scoring 2 goals late in the game. We expect a high-scoring affair with Sporting being the better side and returning home with the three points.
