We saw few unexpected results in the UEFA Champions League in the past couple of days. Now we have action in Europa League and I have a combo recommendation, hoping for another good day with the UEL predictions!

This is the last round before group-stage, so the first leg is really important for all team that are involved here. There are many interesting games scheduled this Thursday, but I chose only three of them on the combo.

It won't be easy at all, as there are three matches on the ticket and the final odds are 4.56 at the moment. I hope to record a winning ticket here and then to start a betting diary with daily odd 4+.

Betting combo - 18th August - UEL games

Krasnodar vs Partinzai | Krasnodar -1.5 AH @ 1.59

Gent vs Shkendija | Gent -1.5 HA @ 1.66

Austria Vienna vs Rosenborg | Both teams to score @ 1.76

Final odds: 4.56

The first game seems to be an unbalanced one, with Krasnodar and Partizani facing each other in Russia. There are no doubts about the stronger team in my opinion. The Russians are superior from every single point of view and they are looking for a clear win here, to secure the qualification in group-stage after the first leg. Krasnodar won the last four home matches, scoring a total of 14 goals, exactly 3,5 per game.

Gent and Shkendija from Macedonia will be face to face from 19:30, UK Time. As expected, the Belgians are clearly in pole-position and they will certainly try to get a win here, to have no concerns in the second leg. Gent had decent start in the new season, with two wins and three draws in the official matches so far.

The third game will take place in Vienna, putting face to face Austria Vienna and Rosenborg, two good teams when it comes about attack. The Austrians are not in their best form, but they have the fans behind and they will certainly try to get maximum from this game, as they will have a difficult mission next week in Norway. Rosenborg are very capable too and I expect both clubs to score here, the odds being very interesting and attractive. #Football
