Arsenal Are Equipped To Win The Europa League
Arsene Wenger prided himself on Arsenal not playing in the Europa League and he only had to face that indignity in his last season in charge. Arsenal reached the last four and missed out on a route to the Champions League but the new manager has won the trophy three times. Unai Emery was the manager of Sevilla when they won the Europa League from 2014 to 2016. He knows how to juggle commitments at home and in Europe. Chelsea are also playing in the Europa League this season but with such expertise at the helm ARSENAL are the team to back at 8/1. Manchester United won the Europa League at the end of the 2016/17 season and as a result qualified for the Champions League.
The two London Premier League outfits and the Glasgow giants are in Europa League action tonight. Arsenal are too short to back at home to Vorskla Poltava from the Ukraine. Celtic are unreliable so a home win against Rosenborg is not guaranteed. Rangers will struggle to avoid defeat against Villarreal. That leaves CHELSEA who can beat PAOK away from home and that outcome is 4/5 with Coral. The home side have not conceded in only two of their last 10 matches at their own ground. The only concern is that the Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, did not prioritise European football with Napoli last season. He will want to impress everyone at Chelsea and that means taking the Europa League and tonight’s match in Greece seriously.
It’s the first round of the Tour Championship which determines who wins the FedEx Cup and $10 million bonus. There is a limited field of the top 30 golfers in the standings and the players go out in 2-balls in point’s order. Tommy Fleetwood has come a long way in two years and today is paired with Tiger Woods who has also had some journey. The course suits the former world number one so the head has to rule the heart and WOODS is the bet to outscore Fleetwood over 72 holes at 10/11 with Ladbrokes. Justin Rose is tipped to win the championship and FedEx Cup.
It’s the first day of the Ayr Gold Cup meeting at the Scottish course. The meeting was abandoned last season because a part of the track was unsafe but all is in order this time. The famous Doonside Cup Stakes (3.35) is a listed race over one mile and two furlongs and is the most lucrative of the day. MORANDO, owned by the racing club associated with Leicester City, can beat the opposition at 3/1 with William Hill
