Europa league action on Thursday comes from Autoc Park Randers where Danish side Randers will try to get a win to take to Elfsborg for the second leg. This is a good game between two evenly matched side according to the bookmakers but Randers being the home team should have whatever advantage is in it. Randers are a solid team and will look to Ishak, Lundberg and Brock Madsen up front against an Elfsborg team that are playing very well.
Elfsborg sit in second in the Swedish League just three points off powerhouse Goteborg. Elfsborg of course will have an advantage of their opponents as they are already eleven game into their domestic season, this simply has to be an advantage especially when two teams are coming from similar standard leagues. All the friendlies in the world just arent the same as competitive league action. For this reason I likeElfsborg here to at least get on the score sheet. At 8/5 the odds are a little short on Elfsborg to get the away win but I think we see a good game here and I am taking both to score.
Elfsborg have some real quality in midfield and watch out for youngsters Claessen and Zenelli who have been excellent in Elfsborg's strong start to the season. I think that the draw here is not a bad bet either for those looking for a play on the result and at 12/5 there is some excellent pay out potential.
