In the really tight Group G in the Europa League, all 4 teams harbor hope of qualifying for the next round. Although at the moment Villarreal are leading the group, defeat against Spartak will see them not qualify for the next round. In the other matchup in Group G, Steven Gerrard’s Rangers will take on Rapid Wien. It will be a huge achievement for Gerrard if in his first season, Rangers manage to qualify for the next round in the Europa League.
Villarreal are in fact still unbeaten so far in the Europa League and the fact they play at home make them the clear favorites against Spartak. The odds currently over at 888sport Europa league betting odds are 4/7 for a Villarreal victory. The odds reflect the fact that the Spanish club is strong at home and Russian teams have never been great travelers.
This season’s Europa League promises to be one of the best in recent times with the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal already in it and teams like Liverpool and Spurs might join them if results don’t go their way in the final round of the Champions League.
