Apollon vs. Everton
On paper, both teams have nothing to play for sitting 3rd and 4th in the Group E table and having no chance to qualify in the knock-out stages. The Toffees pride is at stake as they are bottom of the group with just one point earned in 5 Europa League fixtures and 15 goals conceded in the process. Everton’s new manager Sam Allardyce will not take this game seriously with the Merseyside derby taking place on Sunday. The Toffees are already out of the competition and they will surely rest their big stars and not risk them in Europe. Apollon are a decent side when playing on their turf and we expect them not to lose this match. Best pick for the match: Apollon to win with DNB (Draw No Bet) at 1.85 with green-listed bookmaker Unibet.
Atalanta vs. Lyon
Both teams are unbeaten and have already secured their knock-out stage spot but there is still something to play for. Who ever wins this match will qualify from the 1st place and will have the chance to face a runner-up from another group so both teams to be eager to win this clash. Atalanta will be happy with the draw so their approach is simple as they will try to be well organized in their defense and strike on the break. Lyon are enjoying a great season in their domestic league, sitting 2nd in the standings with Nabil Fekir and Memphis Depay being on fire and scoring goals for fun. We expect goals from both sides and at least 3 goals in the match. Best pick for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 1.91 with Coral.
Hoffenheim vs. Ludogorets
Despite being huge favourites to qualify further being the best team from this group, the German side failed to impress and against all the odds they are sitting bottom of the table with just 4 points and 1 match to go. They have no chance for a top 2 finish, so they have nothing to play for. The Bulgarian side have a decent squad and as usual their European performance was good, sitting 2nd in their group and needing just 1 point to progress in the knock-out stages. Hoffenheim enter this game having nothing to lose and they will try to revenge the negative result from the reverse match when they lost 2-1 in Bulgaria. Given the circumstances it’s a tough call, but we expect a goal-fest with at least 3 goals in the match. Best pick for the match: Over 2.5 goals at 1.8 with BetVictor.
FK Crvena Zvezda vs. FC Koln
The 2 side enter this match being equal on points in Group H. Koln’s form this season has been very poor sitting bottom in the German Bundesliga with just 4 points earned in 14 rounds being without a league win so far this term. Peter Stöger has broken the record of being the longest serving coach in the history of FC Koln, but the club have sacked him few days ago and appointed U-19 coach Stefan Ruthenbeck to take over 1st team duties until the winter break. Crvena Zvezda are one point away from earning a knock-out stage spot. The reverse match saw Crvena Zvezda pulling off the upset and winning the game 1-0 away in Germany. FC Koln have huge injury issues missing half of their 1st XI. We expect a thrilling match and a great atmosphere is the stadium with the fans helping their squad to win the match. Best pick for the match: FK Crvena Zvezda to win at 2.15 with Unibet.
