Europa League: Back an English double as the knock-out stages begin

After the excitement of the Champions League this week, it’s the Europa League’s turn, as eight former CL teams join the 24 through from the EL groups to make up the last-32.

We’ve taken a look at the best picks to help you #betbigwinbig this evening.

Gent v Tottenham

Premier League side Tottenham may have left themselves with too much to do in the title race, but they should have enough to beat Belgian side Gent this evening.

Spurs missed out on the Champions League knock-outs after a disappointing group stage, but boss Mauricio Pochettino will be keen to make amends tonight, having named a strong team including star man Harry Kane.

Gent on the other sit 8th in the Belgian top flight, and may only be hoping to keep it respectable tonight.

Back Tottenham at 1.84 with

Manchester United v St Etienne

It’s Pogba v Pogba tonight at Old Trafford, as superstar Paul takes on his elder brother Florentin.

The older Pogba has marked the occasion by having the pair’s squad numbers in his hair, and that gesture of goodwill could well extend to the rest of his team, who are well off the pace in Ligue 1.

United on the other hand have been in fine form, remaining unbeaten in 13 Premier League games.

With the most expensive footballer in history in their ranks, as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic (who has scored 13 times against the Greens), I see them getting a comfortable first-leg lead tonight.

Back United at 1.28 — and if you fancy a flutter on Ibrahimovic to net first, he’s 2.63.
