Spurs and Swansea in Europa League British double

| 20.02.2014

Coral are offering a fantastic 9/1 double for customers to win big in the Europa League if you back both Tottenham and Swansea City to win their last 32 first leg matches.

Spurs travel to Ukraine, currently in political unrest, in a showdown with Dnipro, whilst Swansea host Rafa Benitez’s Napoli.

Dnipro v Tottenham
Spurs head to Dnipro assured that the fixture will go ahead, following the riots in capital Kiev 220 miles away, and have very enticing odds of 19/10 to come back from Ukraine with a victory.

Tim Sherwood has decided to leave key players such as Emmanuel Adebayor, Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker, Mousa Dembele, Aaron Lennon and Younes Kaboul behind as he looks to focus more on a fourth place Premier League finish.

However, the north Londoners managed to win all six of their group games and will not want to undo all that hard work.

The tie sees Dnipro boss Juande Ramos face the club he managed between 2007 and 2008, but his side are second-favourites in this tie to qualify for the next round at 5/2, compared to odds-on Spurs at 2/7.

Roberto Soldado, although having a poor debut season in the league, has managed to net five times in three games in Europe. His hat-trick against Anzhi Makhachkala will put punters in confident mood to back the Spanish international at 7/4 to score anytime.

Dnipro’s main man Yevhen Konoplyanka, heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in January, has three goals in five in the Europa League group stage this campaign, and you can back him at 11/4 to net anytime.

Swansea City v Napoli
Welsh side Swansea are going through a difficult spell due to their poor form and the sacking of Michael Laudrup early in February.

However, they still find themselves 10th in the Premier League and have produced recent confidence-boosting results against Cardiff (3-0 victory) and away to Stoke (1-1). They go into the tie with Napoli as underdogs with odds of 12/5 for a first leg victory, compared to the Italians at 6/5.

The Swans, who finished runners-up in their Europa League group, will be looking to dent Benitez’s hopes of becoming the first manager to win the continent’s secondary competition with three different clubs – after Valencia and Chelsea.

New boss Garry Monk is still without key man Michu for the last 32 first leg tie, but can rely on striker Wilfried Bony, who has five goals in this season’s qualifiers and group stages. Back the Ivorian at 15/8 to net anytime.

Napoli have problems of their own with club top scorer Gonzalo Higuain a doubt, but if fit back him at 11/10 to score anytime. Fellow former Real Madrid player Jose Callejon has been in fine form for his new side this season, with 14 goals in 33 games in all competitions. The Spaniard has odds of 7/4 to net anytime at the Liberty Stadium.
