Europa League picks from Andrew Chase: CFR Cluj vs Roma, Benfica vs Rangers FC, and Qarabag vs Sivasspor
Matchday 3 is upon us in the UEFA Europa League and the group stage tables are starting to shape up nicely. Some groups look to have been already decided after two games, including Groups A, D, and I which I have plays for this morning.
Group A and Group D have the two group leaders facing off. CFR Cluj and Roma are tied at four points and play in Rome today, as well as Benfica and Rangers in Group D who are both perfect through two games. Cluj and Roma will be closer than the spread suggests, and Benfica versus Rangers should be an entertaining game with both teams surging.
Group I is pretty much decided too. However I believe that the more interesting matchup today is between Qarabag and Sivasspor. Sivasspor is struggling in Turkey, and have a half dozen players injured. Look for Qarabag, the Europa League staple, to push past them today.
UEFA Europa League - all matches start at 12:55 PM EST
All Plays 1 Unit.
CFR Cluj +1.5 - 130
Rangers FC +0.5 -125
Qarabag +0.5 -160
Stay tuned for more.... thank you for your time and your trust!
