Europa League odds and tips: Arsenal, Tottenham, Leicester, Celtic and Rangers betting prediction

THE Europa League returns on Thursday with Arsenal, Tottenham, Leicester, Celtic and Rangers all in action.

The group stages of the competition reach the midway point with most of the British representatives boasting a perfect record.

But Jose Mourinho's Spurs will be looking to bounce back from last week's shock defeat to Antwerp, while Celtic need points on the board.

SunSport takes a closer look at tomorrow night's fixtures with all the tips, odds and our prediction in this betting preview.

Arsenal vs Molde – 8pm

  • Eddie Nketiah to score 2 goals or more: 10/3*

Arsenal have registered two victories in their opening two Europa League fixtures this campaign.

The Gunners have beaten Rapid Vienna and Dundalk with weakened starting XI's and should have no difficulties in seeing off Norwegian champions Molde at the Emirates Stadium.

Eddie Nketiah has started both games and looks a great shout to add to his European tally against opposition who have conceded 2+ goals in five of their last 11 competitive away matches.

21-year-old Nketiah is 10/3 to score 2 goals or more against Molde with Ladbrokes BET HERE.

Ludogorets vs Tottenham – 5.55pm

  • Tottenham to win and over 4.5 goals: 7/2*

Tottenham suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Antwerp last week and Jose Mourinho will be eager to make amends.

Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son are likely to be rested with Sunday's trip to West Brom in mind.

But they should still have more than enough to collect maximum points with Gareth Bale, Dele Alli and Carlos Vinicius expected to start.

Ludogorets have lost both of their opening games and have conceded six in the process.

We expect that tally to rise even further on Thursday with Tottenham to win and over 4.5 goals priced at a sizeable 7/2 BET HERE.

Leicester vs Braga

  • Jamie Vardy to score and Leicester to win: 13/10*

Leicester face another side who have enjoyed a perfect start to the competition in Braga.

But we expect the Foxes to continue their momentum in Group G with a victory at the King Power Stadium.

Brendan Rodgers has fielded strong starting XI's in their two previous wins with Jamie Vardy, James Maddison and Youri Tielemans all featuring.

And Thursday night will be no different.

Right now, Jamie Vardy to score and Leicester to win is 13/10 looks an excellent shout BET HERE.

Celtic vs Sparta Prague

  • Celtic to beat Sparta Prague and Over 3.5 goals: 9/4*

Celtic need to win this match. Simple as that.

The Hoops were beaten by AC Milan in their opener and blew a two-goal lead away in Lille last week.

But Neil Lennon's side can take full advantage of the Group H favourites going toe-to-toe in Milan with victory against Sparta Prague.

The Czech outfit have been brushed aside by an aggregate score of 7-1 and we think Celtic will pile on the misery with an emphatic win.

The Scottish champions are 9/4 to beat Sparta Prague with over 3.5 goals scored in the game BET HERE.

Benfica vs Rangers

  • Rangers to win: 29/10*

Group D leaders Benfica and Rangers meet on Thursday with one side set to lose their 100% record.

The Portuguese heavyweights are understandably favourites but Steven Gerrard's side are enjoying a blistering run of form and could upset the odds.

Rangers are on a nine-game winning streak, while Benfica were comfortably beaten by 13th-placed Boavista on Monday.

Ladbrokes are offering odds of 29/10 for Rangers to win on Thursday night BET HERE.
