New-look AC Milan among 2017 Europa League play-offs 1st leg tips
FootyOn experts give their 2017 Europa League play-offs 1st leg tips, which include AC Milan, Marseille, Everton and Ajax.
There are so big names in continental Europe contesting this season’s Europa League play-offs.
AC Milan, Ajax and Marseille have all lifted the European Cup before, but go in the secondary continental competition this term.
Ronald Koeman’s Everton are also involved and have invested heavily in their squad, though the Toffees’ tie comes too soon for £45,000,000 arrival Gylfi Sigurdsson.
What are the best value bets, then? Here are our 2017 Europa League play-offs 1st leg tips…
AC Milan v Shkendija: Rossoneri to rout opponent with win by three goals or more
Everton aren’t the only team to have a squad overhaul this summer, as AC Milan return to the European stage.
New Chinese owners of the Rossoneri have spent big money on getting better players.
Up against Macedonian outfit Shkendija at the San Siro means Milan are a home banker.
Sky Bet go 6/5 that a new-look Rossoneri win by three goals or more, now that they boast Hakan Calhanoglu and Andre Silva in their ranks.
Ajax v Rosenborg: Sides to draw 1st leg in Amsterdam
Although Ajax have re-signed now veteran Netherlands frontman Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, the Dutch giants always see their bright young players poached.
This summer has been no different, with Davy Klaassen signing for Everton, Jairo Riedewald now at Crystal Palace and Tottenham interested in fellow defender Davinson Sanchez.
Even the manager has moved on, with Peter Bosz taking over from Thomas Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund.
That gives visiting Norwegian side Rosenborg hope of earning a draw at the Amsterdam ArenA at 9/2 with BetVictor.
Domzale v Marseille: Back visitors for draw then win in half-time/full-time market
Rudi Garca’s Marseille have a strengthened spine following several summer signings.
These include goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who has returned from Palace; fellow France international Adil Rami in defence, ex-Brazil anchorman Luiz Gustavo and former Monaco forward Valere Germain.
A trip to Slovenia where they face Domzale should not faze such names, then.
Marseille, who have been drawing all of their games at half-time this term so far have gone on to win all but one.
That makes BetVictor’s 7/2 odds superb value for a repeat of being level at the break but ultimately winning coming the final whistle in the half-time/full-time betting.
Everton v Hajduk Split: Sandro Ramirez wincast worth a wager
Live on BT Sport 2, kick-off: 20:05 BST.
And finally, the Toffees’ Spain Under-21 striker Sandro Ramirez needs to show he can step up from Malaga.
Sandro Ramirez is very highly-rated after spending time with Barcelona and coming through their fabled La Masia academy.
He can kick-start his Everton career with a goal in a Goodison Park victory over Croatian club Hajduk Split.
Paddy Power offer a sweet 7/5 Sandro Ramirez wincast for this game.
