Europa League – Easter Road set for goals galore


SCOTTISH football expert Mr Fixit (@MrFixitTips) previews Rangers and Hibs' Thursday night Europa League fixtures.

Rangers and Hibs continue their Europa League adventures tonight and they look contrasting games.

Maribor visit Ibrox for what should be a tight contest but Hibs v Molde could be a goalfest.

A double on Under 2.5 Goals at Ibrox and Over 2.5 Goals at Easter Road looks the best bet and pays 11/5 at BetVictor.

Rangers v Maribor | Thursday 9th August 2018, 19:45

Picking winners is tougher. Maribor don’t have star men and aren’t a big name but they always beat Scottish teams.

In four qualifiers they haven’t conceded while Steven Gerrard’s men were breached for the only time when Osijek netted a last-gasp leveller at Ibrox, so even Under 1.5 Goals tempts at 19/10 at Unibet.

To win, Gers are evens with Ladbrokes and a best 6/5 at SkyBet to qualify. It won’t be easy but I’m taking the Scots to edge through for a likely meeting with Ufa of Russia.

Hibs v Molde | Thursday 2nd August 2018, 19:00

There have been 24 goals in Hibs’ four qualifiers and 14 in Molde’s games – including a 2-1 defeat at Glenavon, which must give Neil Lennon hope.

Molde sit fourth in the Norwegian league so Hibs shouldn’t fear them and can win this at 6/4 with Coral while they are 13/8 underdogs at Bet365 to qualify.

But as I said, goals are the way to go and Hibs and both to score shouts at 4/1 with Bet365 and Over 3.5 Goals has a chance at 13/5 with Unibet.

Best Bets

Rangers v Maribor – Under 2.5 Goals

Hibs v Molde – Over 2.5 Goals

Back the double at 11/5 (BetVictor)
