BTTS – Bet Now
The Eredivisie’s Europa Conference League playoffs move into the final on Thursday as Vitesse host AZ Alkmaar in the first of two matches in the series. The Europa Conference League playoffs feature the four highest ranked Eredivisie clubs that have not already qualified for Europe for next season.
AZ Alkmaar finished fifth at the end of the regular season while Vitesse ended the campaign in sixth place. AZ Alkmaar overcame Heerenveen in the semi-finals of the playoffs 4-3. Vitesse needed extra-time to see off Utrecht in their semifinal series.
Vitesse finished the Eredivisie campaign in okay form. They went unbeaten in the final two matches of the season. AZ Alkmaar did not enjoy a strong end to the campaign, however. The Cheeseheads failed to win any of their last four matches.
AZ Alkmaar went unbeaten against Vitesse in the Eredivisie this season with an away draw and a home win. These teams have split the last six games with two wins, two draws, two losses. Five of the last six games saw both teams score. Our betting tips prediction is for both Vitesse and AZ Alkmaar to score in the first leg.
Kayserispor vs Sivasspor
Sivasspor to lift the trophy – Bet Now
The Turkish Cup Final will be played on Thursday night as Kayserispor play Sivasspor in the finale. Sivasspor have never won the Turkish Cup and are playing to lift their first ever piece of major domestic silverware. Kayserispor have won the Turkish Cup just once and that trophy came in 2007-08.
Whichever side wins the Turkish Cup this season, it will breathe fresh breath into a competition dominated by the Istanbul giants. Neither side had a remarkable league season. Kayserispor finished 14th with just one win in their last six games. Sivasspor were 10th in the final league standings. They ended in far better form with four wins from their last five games.
The Turkish rivals traded wins during the season with the home team claiming victories. Sivasspor slightly edge Kayserispor in head-to-head meetings with 3W-1D-2L. Sivasspor are undefeated in nine of their last 10 Turkish Cup matches. Although Kayserispor did well to get to the cup final, their end of the season form was poor. Our betting tips prediction is for Sivasspor to lift the trophy.
Sarpsborg vs Molde
Molde double chance (win or draw) – Bet Now
Norway’s Eliteserien has a midweek set of matches and on Thursday night, Sarpsborg host Molde. Sarpsborg go into the fixture in seventh place with 10 points from 21 points available. Their last two games in the Eliteserien ended in defeat raising worries amongst the club’s supporters.
Molde are regular title fighters in the Eliteserien. They begin the week in third place and four points off of first-place Lillestroem. Depending on Lillestroem and second-place Viking’s results this week, Molde could take a major step toward first place.
Molde are on a three-game winning streak in the division. They have scored 15 goals and conceded eight times in eight matches. Sarpsborg, on the other hand, have scored 11 goals and conceded nine times. They scored just one goal across the last 180 minutes of football.
The home team has won the last six games between these rivals. Molde have shaded the head-to-head record with 4W-0D-2L. Sarpsborg have only won one of four games at home this season. Molde are unbeaten on the road. Our betting tips prediction is for a Molde double chance of a win or draw.
Odense vs Midtjylland
Midtjylland to win – Bet Now
Odense will face Midtjylland in the Danish Cup Final on Thursday afternoon. Midtjylland just missed out on the league title, finishing six points behind first-place FC Copenhagen. Odense ended the league campaign in ninth and winless in their last five games.
Odense can be forgiven for such poor league form as they had their eyes on the Danish Cup Final. Odense smashed through SonderjyskE in the semifinal 5-1 on aggregate. Midtjylland defeated Vejle 4-1 on aggregate to reach the cup final.
Since the start of the 2000s, Midtjylland have been on an upward trajectory in Danish football. However, the Wolves have won just one Danish Cup trophy, which came in 2018-19. Odense have won five Danish Cups. Their last trophy win was in 2007.
Midtjylland have been excellent against Odense in their last six meetings. The Wolves posted a record of 3W-2D-1L across the teams’ last six encounters. This past season, Odense went unbeaten against Midtjylland claiming a win and a draw. However, on the big cup final stage, our betting tips prediction is for Midtjylland to win the match at full-time.
Auxerre vs Saint-Etienne
Auxerre to win – Bet Now
How fortunate were Saint-Etienne on the final day of the Ligue 1 season? Les Verts drew 1-1 with Nantes while Metz lost 5-0 to Paris Saint-Germain. The draw allowed Saint-Etienne to move out of automatic relegation and into the relegation-playoff position by a mere point.
Auxerre finished the Ligue 2 campaign in excellent form. The second-division club went unbeaten in their final six games with three of those matches ending as wins. They were just one point off of the second automatic promotion place in Ligue 2.
Saint-Etienne should be very worried about losing the relegation-playoff. Yes, they will feel that they have a second chance at safety. However, Les Verts are a squad lacking quality. Auxerre on the other hand, are brimming with confidence.
Saint-Etienne failed to win any of their final six games in Ligue 1 and four of those matches were defeats. Auxerre go into the first leg unbeaten in nine straight matches in all competitions. Matches between these sides have bene few and far between over the years. Between 2008 and 2017, Auxerre went unbeaten against Saint-Etienne in nine straight games. Our betting tips prediction is for Auxerre to win against Saint-Etienne in the first leg.
