iBet: Holland and Turkey will take the Europa League seriously
FC Twente v Buraspor, kick off 8pm
Lay under 1.5 goals at 4.2 to one with Betfair
Although I’m not crazy about betting on the Europa League, teams from Holland and Turkey are likely to be taking it seriously and fielding strong sides, and this second leg tie does have the smell of goals about it. Buraspor came back from 1-0 down to win the first leg 3-1 at home, and there could have been many more goals. The Turkish had four clear chances inside the first 15 minutes before falling behind to a Nacer Chadli strike on the half hour, but hit back with two from Pablo Batalla and one from Stanislas Sestak. Buraspor created loads of chances in the second half and hit the bar as well, with Twente hanging on in the end and lucky to escape with a two-goal defeat. Bursapor coach Ertugrul Saglam says this competition is a primary target for him and will be fielding his strongest possible side. Twente are three from three in the Dutch Eredivisie this season and top the table with nine points and eight goals scored. They obviously have to attack the tie on home soil and that should lead to another open encounter.
South Africa are best priced 4/5 with Stan James to win the third one day international after their demolition job on Tuesday. The same firm offers 10/11 that they will outscore England in the first 15 overs. Eoin Morgan is best priced 5/1 with Ladbrokes and BetVictor to be top England bat.
