UEFA Europa League – Week 1 – Predictions
Feyenoord Vs Manchester United
Feyenoord host Manchester United on Thursday evening and will be keen to extend a fantastic run of form which has seen them win five straight matches. Former Liverpool player Dirk Kuyt was on the scoresheet on Saturday and will hope to cause United problems. The Red Devils travel to Holland following a disappointing defeat when Manchester City visited on Saturday. Jose Mourinho will need to lift his side’s morale quickly but will face a stern test here. All square in Feyenoord – Back a score draw here.
Southampton Vs Sparta Prague
Southampton have got off to a slow start in the Premier League and have acquired just two points from their first four outings. The Saints have European football on the menu this Season but are without Ronald Koeman who moved to Everton despite Southampton’s excellent 6th place finish. Sparta Prague are 2nd in their domestic League following a disappointing 2-2 draw with Mlada Boleslav on Saturday. European football could kick-start Southampton’s campaign. Home win at St Marys – Back a Southampton Victory here.
Inter Vs Hapoel Be’er Sheva
Inter Milan are no longer the European Giants they once were and find themselves playing in the Europa League following a disappointing Season. Inter picked up a good away win on Sunday and will be looking for all three points here. Hapoel Be’er Sheva narrowly missed out on a Champions League berth when they were beaten by Celtic over two legs in the Qualifying round. The Israeli League Leaders have won three of their last four and have conceded just once in 360 minutes of Football. Home win expected at The San Siro – Back an Inter Victory here.
