Europa League Preview

by | Previews

The group stages continue in the Europa League and Europa Conference League, as we reach half-way through and Matchday 3. Some of the English sides have put themselves in with a great chance of progressing to the knockout stages, such as Tottenham, West Ham, and Leicester, whilst there are also some famous European club names in action too.

Vitesse v Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham are the sole British representatives in the Europa Conference League, and they have made a good start to their campaign to sit top of Group G.

Spurs were held to a 2-2 draw in Rennes in their first game, but then hammered Mura 5-1 thanks to a Harry Kane hat-trick in the final twenty minutes of the game. They now travel to the Netherlands to face a Vitesse side who started their campaign with a 2-0 win against Mura, before losing 2-1 at home to Rennes.

Harry Kane’s hat-trick has seen him top the scoring charts in the Europa Conference, and if Nuno Santo Espirito decides to risk his prize asset with a start against Vitesse, the England forward could well add to his tally in what should be a win for Tottenham.

Rangers v Brondby

Rangers welcome Danish side, Brondby, to Ibrox for a game that is crucial to both sides if they are to have any chance of finishing in the top two of Group A in the Europa League.

The Gers have put in two good performances in their opening two games, but the Scottish champions have been unable to turn their possession into wins or even goals in the competition so far. They first lost 2-0 at home to Lyon, before a 1-0 defeat at Sparta Prague.

Brondby have picked up a point following a 0-0 draw with Sparta in their opening game, but they were soundly beaten 3-0 when they travelled to France to face Lyon.

Both sides will be going in search of their first goals of the group stages, but Steven Gerrard does have the talents of Kemar Roofe, Alfredo Morelos, and Ianis Hagi to call on to inspire the Gers to victory in front of a passionate Ibrox crowd.

West Ham v Genk

West Ham United are enjoying life in the Europa League and sit top of Group H after two wins from two. They have taken their good form in the Premier League on to the European stage, and look comfortable so far.

A superb 2-0 win in Croatia against Dinamo Zagreb was followed up by a 2-0 home success against Rapid Vienna That game saw Declan Rice take his Europa League goal tally to two goals for the campaign having previously scored in Zagreb.

The Hammers will go into the game as favourites and are expected to maintain their lead at the top of the group with another win against Belgian side, Genk, at the London Olympic Stadium.

The visitors started the group stages well with a 1-0 win at Rapid Vienna, but they were comfortably beaten 3-0 when they hosted Zagreb in their last group game.

We can only see another West Ham win, which would all but seal their qualification for the knockout stages.
