Europa League Fixtures and match predictions for Thursday

Lazio vs Lokomotiv Moscow 

Bobby Adekanye (Meniscal Injury) and Mattia Zaccagni (Hamstring Injury) will be missing for Lazio boss Maurizio Sarri.

Team News: Lokomotiv Moscow

Lokomotiv Moscow manager Marko Nikolić has to choose a team with limited availability. Anton Miranchuk (tendon irritation), Zé Luís (Unknown Injury) and Stanislav Magkeev (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be making appearances. Nair Tiknizyan is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

Prediction

In this match, Lazio will probably get the goals that they need when they meet Lokomotiv Moscow, who may well struggle to score themselves.

We’re tipping a 2-0 win for Lazio come full-time.


Marseille vs Galatasaray 

Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the Marseille boss Jorge Sampaoli to be concerned about due to a largely intact set of players. Boubacar Kamara (Thigh Problems) won’t play. Oussama Targhalline cannot play in this game through suspension.

Team News: Galatasaray

Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim has to choose a team with limited availability. Arda Turan (Ankle Injury) and Omar Elabdellaoui (Eye Injury) can’t be considered. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Ogulcan Caglayan, Gustavo Assunção, Omar Elabdellaoui, Fatih Öztürk and Aytac Kara.

Prediction

We’re inclined to think that Marseille should score at least once when they face Galatasaray, who will not find it easy scoring.

We therefore think that it’s going to be a 2-0 margin for Marseille at the conclusion of the game.


Celtic vs Bayer Leverkusen 

Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Celtic gaffer Ange Postecoglou to contend with from of an almost fully healthy squad. Kyogo Furuhashi (Knee Injury) won’t play.

Team News: Bayer Leverkusen

Thanks to a fully injury-free squad available for selection, the Bayer Leverkusen boss Gerardo Seoane has zero fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game.

Prediction

We’re envisaging that Celtic could find themselves struggling to breach the defence of this Bayer Leverkusen side who we think will gain the upper hand.

We therefore see a very even match with a 0-1 win for Bayer Leverkusen at the end of this game.
