Get same game multi tips for Europa League matches involving Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Leicester and Rangers on Thursday from Max Liu...
"The Gunners have proved effective at getting the job done so far, although this is their toughest test and Benfica will play their part, they should still have enough to win."
Sociedad to score in Red Devils win
Our match previewer Kevin Hatchard thinks United will be keen to put right what they got so wrong in the Champions League and I agree with him. The Red Devils exit from the continent's premier competition was embarrassing. Since that miserable night in Leipzig they've improved, although bad habits have crept back in of late - particularly at the back, with some fans calling for Harry Maguire to be dropped. Sociedad won 1-0 at the weekend but that's their only clean sheet in five so United's attack should be able to break them down. I can see the Spanish side getting on the scoresheet in a Red Devils win.
Spurs to relish trip to Budapest
Following defeats in the Premier League and FA Cup the Europa League could offer some respite for Jose Mourinho. And as Kevin points out in his preview, winning this competition - as Portuguese manager has twice done in his career - could be Spurs' best chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League.
Local rivals West Ham await Spurs on Sunday but, if this competition is Mourinho's priority, he won't hesitate to rotate his squad accordingly. He may have lost his edge in recent years but he remains a master of identifying his team's best chances of silverware and focussing with laser-intensity. Expect a strong Spurs line-up to face an Austrian side that have done well to get this far. The English club should win but we may not see a rout.
Foxes' winless road run to continue
Leicester were superb in beating Liverpool 3-1 at the King Power on Saturday but this trip to the Czech capital presents a different kind of challenge. The Foxes have won just one of their last seven away matches in European competition and, with Jamie Vardy likely to be rested, they might struggle up front. Lukas Julis has five goals for Slavia in this competition and, having missed Sunday's 4-3 win against MFK Karvina might be raring to go, but Leicester have conceded only once in their last four matches.
Benfica and Arsenal can produce a goalfest
Goals are expected when these two meet in the Italian capital on Thursday night. In Group stage, the Portuguese side averaged three goals a game in attack, but also leaked nine goals along the way. Arsenal beat Leeds 4-2 at the weekend so they're more than capable of playing their part in a high-scoring ding-dong. Arsenal's six Group matches yielded 25 goals - an average of over four per game - so it makes sense to back overs. The Gunners have proved effective at getting the job done so far in the Europa League and, although this is their toughest test and Benfica will play their part, they should still have enough to win.
Gerrard's Gers to keep it tight in Belgium
Fifteen points clear at the top of the SPL, Rangers can afford to put time and energy into the Europa League progress. Confidence is high in the camp, according to our previewer Frankie Monkhouse, and getting past Antwerp would be another positive on Steve Gerrard's managerial CV. The Belgians played out a tough 1-1 draw with Standard Liege on Sunday while Rangers were last in action on Saturday so should be fresher. But Antwerp showed when beating Spurs earlier this season that they're no pushovers. Rangers have conceded just once in their last five matches, so we should see a tight contest.
