UEFA Europa League Predictions
Genk – Celta prediction and betting tips 20 Apr 2017
Neither Genk nor Celta don’t know yet what it’s like to play in the semi-finals of the European tournaments. Which of them will manage to get such experience, it is very difficult to predict. The home victory makes Celta the favourite of confrontation take into account their last away games in European competition, in which the Galicians defeated the opponents with a same score 2:0. But that’s only on the paper; in general 3:2 was never considered as acceptable score before the second leg. The task of Eduardo Berizzo’s team is complicated by the fact that Genk produced a bright attacking football and beyond all doubt will be capable to score at least one goal and with strong hosts’ defence will open the doors to the semi-final. Preparing for this clash Celta`s coach gave rest to some leading players in a match against Granada, which, however, did not stop the Galicians from a big win.

Besiktas – Lyon prediction and betting tips 20 Apr 2017
Lion was unlucky to be a part of all kinds of cataclysms lately. The beginning of the first match against Besiktas in France was postponed because of the fight between the ultras of both teams. In the League 1 game with Bastia in Corsica local fans ran out onto the pitch and start to hunt for the players of Lyon. Such situation is unlikely to happen again in Istanbul, since the hosts will take all needed measures to avoid any excesses. In the days of old Besiktas` stadium was famous as one of the noisiest in Europe, now this fame has passed to the Vodafone Arena and the new stadium of the Black Eagles accommodates the “acoustic shock” and probably it became even stronger! Striker Abubakar still can not play for the hosts, he is still suspended, but defender Marcelo is back and that’s good news for Besiktas. In addition Ricardo Quaresma who was injured 2 weeks ago still remains a doubtful. Lyon also have many problems as Rafael will not play, Mammana and Valbuena can’t play to full extent of power.
Besiktas – Lyon betting advice: Asian Handicap Besiktas (0.0, +0.5) @ 1.80
Schalke – Ajax prediction and betting tips 20 Apr 2017
In the first game Ajax looked by head and shoulders above the opponent and have taken deserved victory. However we should not to consider the Miners as a rival since a victory with two-goal margin still guarantees nothing in the clash with one of the strongest teams in 1. Bundesliga. Ajax are not yet the team which was in the past, they are fast and have strong attack, but still young and inexperienced. This may sound strange, but their attack may be their weakness! Schalke have demonstrated poor football in Amsterdam, but it’s not typical for them. Doubtless at home arena the hosts will produce completely different football. Will Ajax play well in defence and catch the hosts on counterattacks – that is the question!
