Europa League: Teddy Bears on course for knockout stages


SCOTTISH football expert Mr Fixit (@MrFixitTips) previews Thursday night's Europa League contests featuring Celtic and Rangers. 

Europa League | Thursday 280th November 2019 | BT Sport

Rangers can edge closer to the Europa League knockouts by not losing at Feyenoord. Steven Gerrard's men will qualify with a draw then victory at home to Young Boys – but the manager will be aiming to win in Rotterdam.

That's a tough ask against a side unbeaten in four under new boss Dick Advocaat and a draw would be a decent result. Gers have performed well in Europe this season and I expect them not to lose at 3/5. A score draw pays 7/2.

The Ibrox men are 15/8 to win with the Dutch favourites at 7/5. Rangers netted at Young Boys and Porto but have struggled to keep clean sheets on the road so Both Teams To Score at 4/5 (William Hill) is one to keep an eye on.

Alfredo Morelos was rested at the weekend but will start on Thursday and after his cracking opener against Feyenoord at Ibrox is 5/1 to break the deadlock with Bet365 and 7/4 (Unibet) to net.

Celtic are through but aiming to beat Rennes at home to clinch top spot in Group E. The French side's only point came against the Hoops but they will be weakened and this should be a routine win for Neil Lennon's men.

On accas a Celtic win at 1/2 is fine but they should cover the -1 handicap at 7/5 (Betfair).

Odsonne Edouard is making a name in his homeland with his scoring exploits for the Under-21s and can strike against a Rennes team side with no clean sheets in 12. He is evens (William Hill) to score.

Best Bets

Feyenoord v Rangers – Both Teams To Score (4/5 Wililam Hill)

Celtic v Rannes – Celtic -1 handicap (7/5 Betfair)
