The always excellent James Cantrill ( @ JimmyThePunt ) shares his favorite fantasies from the MD2 Europa League map on Thursday.
West Ham - Rapid Wayne | Thursday 35 e September 2021, 20:10 | BT Sport
West Ham kicked off their European campaign with relative ease, brushing off Dynamo Zagreb with relative ease and hoping to win two out of two wins by welcoming Austrian team Rapid Vienna to London stadium.
Last season's remarkable campaign, finishing in sixth place, put the Hammers in the Europa League, and given the strength of David Moyes XI on the first round, he is not lighthearted about these continental cup events.
Premier League stalwarts Michial Antonio and Declan Rice were among the goals in Croatia, and both are likely to play here. However, with weaker opposition and a hectic schedule on the horizon, Moyes will have to manage his resources, which will mean we'll see rotation. However, the hosts should have enough to secure the lion's share of the points here.
... Rapid Vienna are off to a terrible start with their domestic campaign. After nine games, they come in second from bottom, winning just two games and scoring five unanswered goals in their last two home games. Therefore, I do not expect the Austrian team to challenge the hosts.
In the shadows versus equal money with BetVictor , West Ham to zero looks pretty good.
Given the appointment of the judges, I also believe that the players' cards are a game. Tobias Steeler has the whistle and averaged 475 cards per game in this competition throughout the competition. his career.
The first player to appeal is Philip Stojkovic on 3/1 with a bet 365 ... Domestically, the average defender is 0.24 cards in 90 minutes, but on the continent he gives an average of 0. 44 cards to 90. It is also worth noting that he will have to support the likes of Mikhail Antonio, Manuel Lanzini and Pablo Fornals if they If squads allow, I also think it might be worth combining Stojkovic and Mark Noble to get a 21/1 s Bet 365 .
Mr West Ham is at the end of his career now, but in five seasons with the sun setting over the horizon, from 2015 to 2021, a noble 160 top flight appearances and 35 selected Y and 2R Cards during that period. It was a 90 card with an average of 0. 29, and by that logic, I set the price somewhere around the 7/2 mark tonight. In his only start this season - against Manchester United in the Cup - he was the only player to receive a card on the field!
Legia Warsaw vs Leicester | Thursday 35 e September 2021, 17:45 | BT Sport
The Foxes made a leap forward for the 22/23 season. There are only two of them domestically, once they drew and lost three, scoring seven goals and conceding ten!
As in last season, they remain dominant in terms of possession, averaging 75% and create a lot of chances in this campaign, however, bad finishes and defensive mistakes have crept into their repertoire, so it's worth playing more than 2.5
... Their debut match against Napoli is a perfect example, as the Foxes scored two goals in favor of 26 minutes left but ended in nothing. Chaglar Soyuncu was especially sad that evening, but perhaps the most expensive thing that night was the removal of their ax by Wilfred Ndidi, who was disqualified for the game.
... According to statistics, in the absence of Ndidi, Yuri Tielemans is more inclined towards cards. Over the long career of the Belgian maestro, yellow cards are still a good indicator of discipline for a central midfielder.
It's worth noting, however, that just under a quarter of these are in European nights, despite having played 353 fewer games. ... Therefore, with 90 cards on average 0.24 I would take a price of about 4/1 as a sufficient value, so Bets 365 definitely enough, especially when you think the same rate will be as short as 16/5.
Sparta Prague vs Rangers | Thursday 35 e September 2021, 17:45 | BT Sport
The Rangers are heading to Prague in the second game of the UEL campaign, and I don't expect to see thrillers with such opposing goals in my proposal.
... Under the tutelage of Stephen Gerrard, the Geras were particularly pragmatic, especially when visiting the continent. So far in this campaign, all three of their UE games have scored less than 2.5 goals, including a trip to Lyon, where they limited a team that scored an average of three goals per game to xG of 0. 80. It's also worth noting that this bet was also placed when these sides met in round 17 in this competition last season.
After losing their first match, Gerrard will be looking to get something from the Czech Republic to launch his team's European campaign.
Celtic vs. Bayer. Leverkusen | Thursday 35 e September 2021, 20:10 | BT Sport
As with the Rangers, Celtic's UEL campaign also got off to a bad start, but unlike their rivals, it was a seven-goal thriller.
... Regarding this 4-3 defeat to Real Betis, I suggested in my preview that Furuhashi's absence would leave too much creative void for Celtic and Los Verdiblancos's busy schedule before the game, which would mean the game “ will be low. Novel". I couldn't go wrong anymore.
After scoring four goals in Spain, their defensive flaws became apparent domestically as they have since lost both games. However, two exciting attacking sides are pitted once enough in a match, and the crowded Celtic Park should be expected to turn the game into a frenzy.
Given the expected flow of goals, it makes sense to raise the price in the scorer markets, and the player appealing is Florian Wirtz with a 3/1 bet 365 .
The young midfielder has been called a generation of talent and has been gaining momentum ever since he announced himself to the world by beating Manuel Neuer in his debut match. However, in this campaign, he was a cut above. With five goals and four assists, he directly contributed nine goals in six games, a staggering one, meaning 160 goals and assists averaging 1.80 in all competitions!
Although supporting him at any time is the main game here, I would not want to confuse anyone (23/1) or a goal and double (35/1) with Bet 365 .
