Europa Conference League betting tips: Go for goals at Villa

Europa Conference League betting tips and predictions

The group stage of UEFA’s third-tier club competition continues on Thursday and we have studied the odds to pick out some Europa Conference League betting tips.

Aston Villa and Aberdeen are the British representatives while we have also picked out a bet for one of the night’s other matches, plus we also have Europa League betting tips for Thursday.

PAOK v Aberdeen

Aberdeen are staring down the barrel of elimination having taken just one point from their first three games in Group G.

It had looked much more promising when they were 2-0 up against PAOK at Pittodrie last month before losing 3-2, with the visitors’ winner coming from a penalty right at the end of the game.

Aberdeen are the second Scottish side to head to Thessaloniki this season, with Hearts having lost 4-0 here in qualifying and that does not bode well for the chances of the Dons.

Reaching the Scottish League Cup final has given Aberdeen something to look forward to and they may as well have a go here but that could leave them exposed at the back so a home win and over 3.5 goals at 17/10 is the first of our Europa Conference League betting tips.

Aston Villa v AZ Alkmaar

Villa suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Sunday but the home faithful at Villa Park have had plenty to cheer this season.

Unai Emery’s men have won seven of their eight games on home soil in all competitions and scored 25 goals, with their only loss here coming against Everton in the Carabao Cup.

A 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture in the Netherlands was Villa’s second win in Group E and a third would leave them on the brink of qualifying but AZ could have their moments given they sit third in the Eredivisie with an unbeaten record.

Four of Villa’s last five home wins have featured goals at both ends so a Villa victory and both teams to score appeals at 2/1.

Ludogorets v Fenerbahce

It was the weekend for unbeaten starts to end and much like Tottenham and Arsenal in the Premier League, Fenerbahce were finally beaten in Turkey on Sunday.

An astonishing run of 19 successive victories to begin the season was halted by a 3-2 loss against Trabzonspor but the trip to Bulgaria looks a good opportunity to return to winning ways.

Ludogorets have lost two of their three games in Group H and conceded 10 goals, including a 3-1 defeat in the reverse fixture, and an away win at 3/4 seems a solid pick.

For punters seeking a bigger price in Europa Conference League betting tips, it is worth noting that Fenerbahce have only conceded one goal in nine away games so a win to nil is an option at 5/2.
