UEFA Europa and Europa Conference Playoff second legs turn continent into one big party Thursday
By the time most of the second leg playoff matches take place Thursday in the UEFA Europa League and Europa Conference League, the draw for the UEFA Champions League group stage will be complete.
It is a good feeling, waiting to see when your team is pulled out of the pot, and knowing which teams will be your opponents for the next couple months.
For all the teams playing Thursday, they will want that feeling. The draws for both group stage tournaments playing Thursday will be held Friday morning, and there are 20 teams still alive for spots in the Europa League.
I looked at two of the Turkish teams, as well as a few other sides that are in pole position to advance.
I also picked two of the Conference matches, but once again, there is value all over the shop. I love Tottenham to roll Paços de Ferreira after an embarrassing result last Thursday.
Take a shot on some parlays using favored teams as well.
