UEFA Europa League Group Stage Matchday 5 Preview

News Content


The Europa League is back, and we have one of the last group stage match days to entertain ourselves.

Round five will be a stern test to see which teams truly want the smoke, and which teams will be reserved and bow out in the competition.

Although it is not the top European challenge, the Europa League is important for clubs to stay in and advance.

The rewards are great financially, but also within the team and for Champions League hopes.

The playoff round will encompass some of the best sleeper teams in all the world, which may have not been seen beforehand.

Although there are big teams like Arsenal, Manchester United and so on and so forth, there are teams breaking into the mix of things who have not had the chance in past years.

Look for the little guys to try and upset the bigger clubs and make this stage even more interesting.

FK Crvena Zvezda versus Trabzonspor - Thursday, October 27th, 2022 - Group H

Red Star Belgrade are in a tough spot in the group stage.

After a dominant win versus Ferencvaros, their progress to make it out has not been great.

Stagnant with points, the Serbian club is looking for any help to get their final desired goal.

They have been playing very well domestically and their status within the European region remains dangerous.

However, their own organization knows that the Conference League might be looming, and they do not want such an occurrence.

Look for Red Star to implement all their attacking power into this game and the next, trying to vie for the final qualification spot in hard times.

Trabzonspor, like Red Star, are in a tough spot for advancing as well.

The Turkish club does not have any room for error and are treading a thin line in order to make the playoffs.

There is pressure on the organization to make the most out of the situation but there are huge obstacles ahead.

Their main attacking players are not in great health which will contribute greatly towards their chances in the next two weeks.

If they get in spaces, expect some messy finishes but there will be opportunities.

Betting Prediction - Over 2.5 on the Asian total in a battle between two hungry teams for a playoff spot.

Lazio versus Midtjylland - Thursday, October 27th, 2022 - Group F

Lazio and Midtjylland are in similar spots within the group stage and their space for error is next to none.

The Serie A defenders have been good in both spots but their consistency with European competition has been lacking.

The Danish Midtjylland needs the points as well and they will be firing on all cylinders to try and make the knockout stage.

Lazio should have the talent advantage, but in intercontinental competition, anything can happen.

Look for this to be a feisty game with not too many goals.

Betting Prediction - Under 2.5 Asian total and Lazio to advance / win on the 1x2 line by one or two goals.
