Napoli To Repel Villarreal

Live on ESPN & ITV 4: Thu 18.00: Aside from the 2 British teams in action, there are plenty of other Europa League games on Thursday.

Napoli are 6/5 with Coral to beat Villarreal which is a little short but as Villarreal have drifted a touch out of form recently, it may be worth backing the Italians in this encounter.

In another TV match, Benfica are a short 3/5 with YouWin.com to beat Stuttgart (6/1, Skybet). Benfica have won a brilliant 13 consecutive games (10 of them to nil) but they have been a mix of league cup, Portuguese cup and league against generally weaker opposition. The last time Benfica lost a match was at home to a German team and Stuttgart can bring a little bit of a stronger test than Benfica are used to.

Expect a much tighter game with some of Stuttgart’s recent improved away attitude shining through – a draw is the bet at 3/1 (Betfred).

Anderlecht have a decent chance of beating Ajax at 6/4 (Stan James) and wonderkid Romelu Lukaku, Anderlecht’s top league scorer at 17 years old, is 7/4 with bet365 to net at anytime.

PSV are a big price at 3/1 () but they travel to Lille (top in France) so that’s a game best left while free-attacking Lech Poznan could shock Braga’s system with a victory at 13/10 (William Hill).

Thursday 17 February:
Rubin Kazan v FC Twente (12:00)
Metalist Kharkiv v Bayer 04 Leverkusen (16:00)
Anderlecht v Ajax (18:00)
Benfica v VfB Stuttgart (18:00)
