There are some important clubs in action when the Europa League qualifiers take place on Thursday, including Bordeaux and Rangers and FC Copenhagen

<h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/fk-ventspils-vs-fc-girondins-bordeaux-3520381?mtid=1">Ventspils (Latvia) vs Bordeaux (France)</a></h2><p>The French side have produced some great football in the pre-season friendly matches being unbeaten in their 4 warm-up matches against decent sides like St. Etienne or Ajaccio. On the other side, the Latvians from Ventspils are in the middle of their domestic season, sitting 2nd in the SynotTip Virsliga standings after 15 rounds of fixtures. They enter this match on the back of another qualifying EL round beating the Albanians from Luftetari Gjirokastra 8-3 on aggregate. They always struggle on the European competitions so backing them to pull off the upset is not the smartest thing to do. Bordeaux have huge expectations from this European campaign and we expect them to take this game very seriously and solve the qualification issue from the 1st leg. Best pick for the match: Bordeaux to win with -1 Asian Handicap at 1.73 <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=26ea6fa8-c86d-4d9d-9328-b4c0b06702ae&amp;f=2">with Unibet</a>.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/nk-rudar-velenje-vs-fc-fcsb-3520353?mtid=1">Rudar (Slovenia) vs FCSB (Romania)</a></h2><p>Despite being a small Slovenian side, Rudar might give huge headaches to Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League qualifying stages. Rudar are back in Europe after 4 years when they were knocked-out on penalties by Laci from Albania. They have some exotic players in their attack, Djair Parfitt-Williams from Bermuda and Abu Kamara from Liberia. On the other side FCSB also known as Steaua Bucharest, have started their 2018/19 domestic campaign on the wrong foot, losing their opening match 0-1 away at Astra. They’ve lost some of their most important player in the summer transfer window without making any major transfer to strengthen the team. Despite all their internal problems, Steaua are huge favourites to qualify further being priced at 1.22 with Betfair. They should have enough to return home with the win and focus on the next round. Best pick for the match: FCSB to win at 1.7 <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f&amp;f=2">with Bet365</a>.</p><p> </p><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/nk-osijek-vs-rangers-fc-3520373?mtid=1">Osijek (Croatia) vs. Rangers (Scotland)</a></h2><p>Steven Gerrard and Co. were held to a goalless draw in Macedonia but won their Europa League qualifying round 2-0 on aggregate against Shkupi. They will face a tougher challenge as they will travel to face Croatian side Osijek on Thursday. Gerrard is concerned about the lack of a cutting edge and attacking firepower and admits that this match might be tougher than expected for his new side. They might have a defensive approach as they will try to keep a clean sheet in the 1st leg and head into the 2nd leg at Ibrox full of confidence. Osijek have been scoring frequently over the last months across all competitions and are expected to find the back of the next in front of their fans. But they are also conceding and Rangers have the necessary weapons to contribute on the scoreboard. Best pick for the match: Both teams to score at 1.83 with <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=32b59d0e-2bfb-43ac-987d-fd24429abae0&amp;f=2">Betfair</a>.</p><h2>Extra Tips:</h2><h2><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/stjarnan-gardabae-vs-fc-copenhagen-3520366?mtid=1">Stjarnan (Iceland) vs FC Copenhagen (Denmark)</a> – Copenhagen to win at 1.75 <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&amp;a=e605009c-af6d-4596-a06f-dbd28d37b12f&amp;f=2">with Bet365</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league">Click Here For Full Europa League Odds</a></h2>
