UEFA Europa Conference League: Quarter Finals Leg 2

News Content


The UEFA Europa Conference League has a deadlock in so many ties of the QF’s and leg two will only be better.

This week’s games will decide all, and the ability for teams to play through the pressure and deliver a result for the club is going to be noted.

This Conference League has delivered upon all expectations and exceeded them, showing the world some absolute tanks of teams.

This introduction of the competition last year brought about so much fresh air and much-needed exposure to some of the top teams in Europe.

The expectations are not the highest in the Conference League, but the potential rewards are so much deeper.

Teams have gone all out in trying to secure a spot in the Europa League, and also provide themselves with much needed tests against heavy hitting competition.

Making it to the semis could open up a huge plethora of opportunities, and these last eight teams are all-in for the final.

Let’s take a look at some of this week’s best matches to bet on Stake.com’s sportsbook!

Match Betting Previews

West Ham versus Gent - Agg. 1-1

West Ham needs to reel in their squad fast, as their season is slowly slipping away from them.

After securing a goal lead in the first leg against Gent, they were thoroughly outclassed and now find themselves in a position where it could all be for nothing.

West Ham have a squad full of talented players, but the results have not been up to par this year.

The Hammers will take solace in the fact they are at home and need to build off of previous positive spells.

This squad is capable of going all the way and winning this tournament, but they need to be serious and take matchups against teams like Gent with full confidence.

It will be interesting to see what adjustments David Moyes makes in leg two, hopefully with a full-strength starting line-up first off. From there, they should be the better team.

Gent is having a great season both in the Belgian league and with their recent exposure to European competition.

A team that is capable of being in the Champions League themselves, Gift Orban has been truly a “gift” for the Gent squad.

His electricity on the attacking end of the pitch has carried them to several results.

Gent has a true opportunity to make some noise here, and it will be up to them to make use of the counter-attacking chances this Thursday.

Betting Prediction - West Ham Moneyline and possibly both teams to score.

Nice versus Basel - Agg. 2-2

Nice and Basel played a cracker of a match last Thursday in attempts to secure a tie win, they both conceded and scored two goals a piece.

Nice will feel more confident this time around, however, at home.

Basel played well enough to secure a chance for the semi-finals, but their road will end here if they are not careful.

Defensively, both teams are more than suspect, but Nice will try and clean up mistakes on their home turf.

They are the better team and will more than likely prevail by two goals or more.

Will the Basel defence be able to clear dangerous chances and give their forwards a chance? That remains to be seen.

Betting Prediction - OGC Nice ML and over 2.5 goals in this match.
