FK Krasnodar vs Everton
Everton did well to secure a point at Anfield, and will be looking forward to facing a weaker opponent in Russia. Martinez must keep one eye on the Premier League as Europa league exertions tend to result in a weaker domestic campaign. For this reason, I feel Everton will put out a second string side in Russia and FK Krasnodar will take advantage of this and secure a point on home soil.
Inter Milan vs FC Karabakh
Inter Milan were humiliated last week, losing out 4-1 at the San Siro to Cagliari. They will be relishing the opportunity to give the fans something to cheer for against a side who should provide no match to the Nerazzuri. FC Karabakh will be looking to carry their domestic form into their European campaign, but they will not be too disheartened by a defeat in their hardest tie of the group stage. Comfortable home win to move another step towards qualification.
Tottenham v Besiktas
Tottenham go into this game on the back of a hard fought, morale boosting draw away at Arsenal. Spurs were on the back foot for most of the game but their back four held firm, largely thanks to captain Younes Kaboul who I believe had his best game yet for the club. This Europa League clash however will be a very different game to that at the Emirates and the Lilywhites will be expected to take the game to the Turks. Pocchetino came to White Hart Lane with a glowing reputation for attacking, free-flowing football but his new charges are yet to replicate that style. For this game regular starters Lamela, Eriksen and Adebayor are likely to be rested, making way for Soldado, Townsend and Lennon. Both these sides drew their first group game and although Spurs will be favourites to claim three points at the Lane, Besiktas will be no pushovers.
