# Event Kick off Prediction Odds 1 Celtic — Malmo 19:45 Malmo +1.5 AH 1.48 2 Basel — M. Tel Aviv 19:45 1 1.45 3 Rapid Wien — Shakhtar Donetsk. 19:45 X2 1.40 4 Skenderbeu — Dinamo Zagreb 19:45 Dinamo Zagreb DNB 1.36 5 Valencia — Monaco 19:45 Under 2.5 goals 1.70

Celtic will not have an easy mission against Malmo, the Swedes eliminating Salzburg in the previous round, winning 3–0 the second leg and coming back from 0–2 (1st leg). I expect a tight game, with Malmo getting at least a draw or losing by maximum one goal.

FC Basel should have no emotions against Maccabi Tel Aviv, their mission being an easy one at first view. They will surely try to obtain the qualify after the first leg, but I decided to not risk very much and I chose a simple bet as you can see.

Shakhtar Donetsk won’t have an easy trip to Wien, considering that Rapid Wien is the team that eliminated Ajax in the previous round. The guests have a much stronger squad at first view and I put the money on a double chance bet, at least a draw for Shakhtar.

Dinamo Zagreb are much superiori than Skenderbeu at the moment, without a doubt. Anyway, we have excellent odds for Dinamo to win, but it seems to risky so I chose a safer bet, with money back in case of a draw.

Valencia and Monaco is the most exciting duel, as I said and I expect a tight game in Spain, with maximum two goals, between two very good sides, especially from a defensive point of view. Nothing is excluded here in my opinion.
