Lazio to exact revenge over Celtic
Lazio suffered a blow as Celtic raced back from behind to beat them in Glasgow in the previous fixture in this group. The Serie A side lost 2-1 in a result that put Celtic top of this group and left the Italians in third. Lazio need to add to their three point-haul in this group so far, but can they secure a victory over Celtic? Luckily for them, they have an incredible record having won 12 of their last 16 home games in this competition. The Aquile are likely to concede in this one based on their recent struggles at the back, but we believe they will have enough to take all three points.
Tough trip for Arsenal?
Vitoria Guimaraes will be hoping to take all three points when they host Arsenal today. It’s been a disappointing campaign for the hosts, who are languishing bottom of the group on zero points. However, their performances have not been without promise, and they may come into this game feeling quietly confident. The Portuguese showed they are more than capable of tussling with Arsenal, yet they do not appear to have got the respect they deserve, especially since they have now got the benefit of playing in front of a home crowd.
Borussia Monchengladbach are aiming to stay out in front domestically, but will that pull their focus away from their clash with Roma? They are bottom of the pile in Europe. They head into this clash with just two points to their name in the Europa League, leaving them three short of leaders Roma. Gladbach have won their last three home matches and scored 11 goals in that time whilst Roma are looking strong on their travels. Both sides have some impressive attacking talents and this match promises to serve up a lot of goals.
Rashford to make the difference for United
Manchester United hope to extend their lead in Europa League Group L when they face Partizan Belgrade. United will want to move one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League knockout stages with yet another triumph over Savo Milosevic’s troops. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had Marcus Rashford come from the bench in the Belgrade clash, but he is likely to lead the line for the hosts this time out. He has been their most influential player so far with seven goals in all competitions.
Wolves to fight for the top spot
Wolves are finding it tough to live up to the hype in the Premier League right now, but their Europa League exploits have been encouraging as they search for a passage through to the knockout rounds. They will be heading into the second half of the group stage campaign with the hopes of stealing top spot off Braga. They have shown that they have what it takes to perform at this level and we can expect nothing short of that here.
