Competition: Europa League
Market: Lille to win against Gabala
Odds: 3/4 @ Bet 365
French Ligue 1 side LOSC Lille travel to the Bakcell Arena to face Azerbaijan outfit Gabala FK in the second leg of the third round of tonight’s Europa League clash, and are favourites to come out on top to book their place in the playoffs.
The two sides played out a stalemate in the first leg at the Allianz Riviera but Lille conceded an away goal which means they have to score tonight otherwise they will be eliminated. Lille finished fifth in the French Ligue 1 last season and ended the previous season with five consecutive away wins.
As a result, they’ll fancy their chances of coming out on top at the Bakcell Arena, but Gabala FK are no slouches. The home side were unbeaten in their own backyard in the Azerbaijan Premier League last season, winning 15 of 18 games. They earned a credible draw in the away leg and have their destiny in their own hands tonight.
However, Lille are the stronger side and won’t underestimate their opponents this time round with their hopes of European participating hanging in the balance. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 3/4 for the French side to win at the Bakcell Arena.
