Everton will look to continue their great Europa League form against Krasnodar, as Roberto Martinez will try to make his team overlook all injuries. With all the history behind Everton’s back, some bookmakers favor the hosts to win, giving them a fair edge over their opponents. Krasnodar are also on the 6th place in their domestic league as opposed to Everton, who are currently residing on the 15th place, one point behind Liverpool.
FK Krasnodar are fairly new on the football stage, and they made it to Europa League after undergoing three qualification rounds. Their strong debut in the competition was sealed after a 1-1 draw against Lille. One of their most experienced players is Andreas Granqvist who provides the necessary depth to the backline. Marat Izmailov could also end up being one of your choices for the goalscorer market at 4.75 with Unibet. Against Lille, Krasnodar took the lead when Laborte scored on the 35th minute, but were unable to hold off the lead and conceded the equalizer on the 63rd minute.
Everton come from a 1-1 draw against Liverpool, and are set to face Manchester United at Old Trafford right after. Roberto Martinez stated he would not take this competition lightly and in wake of poor Premier League results, Everton are set to leave a mark in Europa League. Samuel Eto’o might get the chance to play from the start, while Pienaar, Coleman, Mirallas and Barkley are all injured. There is a difference in the quality of these two squads, but the Russians should not be overlooked as they are quite dangerous in the attack, with Wanderson, Ari and Joazinho.
Everton are the team with a point to prove in this match, and if Roberto Martinez managed to motivate them enough then their 3.00 odds given by Unibet for an outright win will result in a banker. Krasnodar has 2.38 odds to win, and the draw is at 3.30. For Everton Kone (3.55 odds), Eto’o (3.30 odds) and Lukaku (2.85) are the main candidates in the goalscorer market. An Asian line of over three has 2.80 odds, and both teams to score at 1.78. We’re betting 7 units on over 1.5 goals by the away team at 2.75 with Unibet.

Vicente Calderon hosts the match between last year’s runner ups, Atletico Madrid and Juventus Torino, set to make a better impression than last year. History shows that Juve won four out of five matches against Atletico, but that was a long time ago, and in recent history these two teams have not yet played against each other.
Atletico come from a defeat in the first round of the group stage and now look forward to improving their record against Italian teams. They won their last five matches against Italian opposition, and Diego Simeone does not look keen to trade that. In La Liga, Atletico are on the third place, two points behind the leaders, after conceding two points in the 2-2 draw against Celta. The latest result is a 4-0 win against Sevilla, where Koke, Miranda, Godin and Mandzukic are keeping the team set in all areas.
Juventus are enjoying an unbeaten run in Serie A, and hope to extend it also in Champions League, even if their injuries might prevent them from doing so. Massimiliano Allegri is implementing a new more attacking style, but might have to be without Caceres and Barzagli, while Pirlo is still a doubt. Pereyra is returning from suspension and while Arturo Vidal has scored in all of his last five matches in Champions League, while Tevez netted a brace in their latest Serie A match.
One might argue that Atletico are not displaying the same quality as last year after the transfer of Diego Costa, but the same could be said about Juventus who are still trying to convince everybody they are up to the tasks on European football stage. Juve are not expected to dominate possession in key areas of the field, as Atletico might impose pressure should they start in a four midfield starting eleven.
We are betting 8 units on an outright Atletico Madrid win at 2.20 with William Hill, while Juventus Torino get 3.60 odds. A draw is at 3.10 and the headline offers include: Mandzukic to score and Atletico to win at 4.00 and Tevez to score and Juventus to win at 6.00 odds. Both teams to score has 2.10 odds, and Atletico Madrid to win both halves at 6.50. The same betting market for la Vecchia Signora is at 13.00 and over 2.5 goals has 2.50 odds with William Hill.
