With two games already played and one cancelled, that leaves us with five games to complete the first leg games in the Europa League round of 16.

Here are the surest betting options for each one of those five games tonight that will most likely win you some money.

Rangers are still flying high from knocking out Borussia Dortmund in the last round and will carry that confidence at Ibrox tonight when Red Star Belgrade come visiting.

Led by the Super Eagles trio of Joe Aribo, Leon Balogun and Calvin Bassey, Rangers are available at 1.78 odds for a home win which looks like a bargain right now.

Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s men have not lost at home since November 2021 and are currently on a 13-game unbeaten home run with 10 wins and three draws in that period.

Barcelona will host Galatasaray at the Camp Nou in what should be a straightforward win for the home side and the bookies agree which is why the odds are set at a measly 1.12.

That is the best bet because Barcelona are in superb form at the moment, currently on a four-game winning streak and have not lost a game in regulation time since the 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in December.

But if those odds are too small for you, then try the No Goal/Goal option at 1.56 odds, Galatasaray have failed to score in five of their last 10 away games and it is hard to see them scoring at Camp Nou.

The most successful team in Europa League history and therefore the favourites to win this year’s edition, Sevilla will host West Ham and are expected to win at 2.13 odds.

Sevilla are on a 10-game unbeaten run at home right now with seven wins and three draws in that period and in fact, the 2-1 loss to Lille in November 2021 is the only time they have been beaten at home this season.

If those odds are too long for your liking, then try something safer with the over 1.5 option valued at 1.38 odds.

Two of the highest-scoring teams in Europe will lock horns in Bergamo and you can expect Atalanta and Leverkusen to produce goals.

Leverkusen have been scoring and conceding freely this season with 10 of their last 11 games producing a GG which will most likely be the case today against Atalanta as well at 1.47 odds.

Alternatively, you can also bet on over 2.5 goals at 1.57 odds, it is well within the capacity of these two teams to produce at least three goals.

Monaco should be clear favourites here but playing away in Portugal is never easy which is why over 1.5 goals is the best bet at 1.32 odds.

You could also attempt a simple 15-minute draw at 1.23 odds as both teams might take a while to figure each other out.
