Make sure to watch the final matchday of Europa League as 48 teams gear up to take on one another on the road to Warsaw.

After the last Champions League matches were played on Wednesday evening, fans have a chance to enjoy some more thrilling action from the continent’s second tier football competition, Europa League. There are some amazing games planned for tonight as a total of 48 clubs will be put to the test against one another.

• Napoli still have to put on one final fight to qualify for next round
• Fiorentina have already ensured their progress in the competition
• Group A will probably see Monchengladbach and Villarreal reach the latter stages of Europa League.

Some teams have already ensured their place to the next round however some have not been so fortunate and will therefore have to fight until the last minute of their respective games to qualify for further progression. Fans will surely find the time to tune in and support their favorite sides as they all aim to reach the final in Warsaw, according to UK gambling news.

Groups I and G

Although Napoli is at the summit of Group I with 10 points, they are still not entirely safe from losing that lead. AC Sparta Praha and BSC Young Boys are lurking right behind as they have a total of 10 and 9 points respectively. The Italian side will face Slovan Bratislava (0 points) at home, a match that strongly favors Napoli for the win 1.13 (1/8), per Unibet sportsbook. When it comes to the game between Young Boys and Sparta Praha, a draw seems most likely 3.30 (23/10).

There is also further uncertainty in Group G, which boasts the likes of Feyenoord (9 points), Sevilla (8 points), Rijeka (7 points) and Standard de Liege (4 points). The first three teams have a lot to fight for which might make way for some exciting football. Sevilla will take on Rijeka at home which makes them favorites 1.22 (11/50), while the Croatians don’t seem to have the necessary skills to defeat one of the bigger teams in their group 13.00 (12/1).

Since Feyenoord is first in the group, online sportsbooks in the Netherlands are supporting their own side to clinch a victory 2.05 (21/20) despite the fact that they’ll be playing away from home. The Belgian side will have to play underdogs on their own turf 3.75 (11/4), but at any moment this match could go in either way. Considering the strength of both teams a tie may be on the cards for this one, for which Unibet has assigned odds of 3.40 (12/5).

Groups K and A

In Group K, Fiorentina sit comfortably on top with 13 points so they have nothing to worry about when they next play against Dinamo Minsk, who are last in the group with only 1 point. Unibet has outlined the Italians to seal an easy win 1.30 (3/10), although realistically both have nothing to play for. The only games that matter are the ones between PAOK 1.70 (7/10) and Guingamp 5.25 (17/4). Each club has recorded 7 points so a win for either of them would mean further progress, although a draw may also be likely 3.60 (13/5).

Group A is also among the groups that is still somewhat ambivalent in identifying its clear winners. Monchengladbach is first with 9 points while Spanish side Villarreal is running strong in second with 8 points. These two teams will try to maintain their lead against Zurich (7 points) and Apollon (3 points) ashtey aim to qualify for the next round. The German team will go up against Zurich at home, in a game that should see the hosts seal a comfortable win 1.40 ().

Villareal on the other hand will face Apollon away, a match that must finish in a win for the visitors if they want to guarantee their placement in the next round. As per Spanish gambling laws, Unibet is allowed to offer an extensive betting range for its customers and for this encounter the sportsbook has assigned odds of 1.20 (1/5) for Villarreal, while Apollon has been dealt outsider odds 16.00 (15/1).
