Hajduk Split v Everton: Wayne Rooney odds to score first appeal- 11/2*
Live on ITV4, kick-off: 20:00 BST.
Returning to his boyhood club this summer, Wayne Rooney has already made his mark at his old stomping ground.
England and Manchester United’s all-time leading scorer has netted two in as many Premier League games to kick-off his second spell with the Toffees.
Ronald Koeman’s men bring a 2-0 aggregate advantage into the final leg of the fixture against Hajduk Split, with Rooney providing an assist for one of the goals in Croatia.
Rooney looks a man revitalised, so back him to net first at 11/2 with Sky Bet.
Rosenborg v Ajax: Draw worth a wager – 5/2*
Ajax have had a terrible start to their season under Marcel Keizer.
The Amsterdam outfit were dumped out the Champions League play-offs thanks to two draws with Nice, then lost their Eredivisie opener to Heracles and then were defeated again at home to Rosenborg in the 1st leg.
Could their season go from bad to worse? 2016 Norwegian Tippeligaen winners and current table toppers Rosenborg are a strong force at home and will cause the Dutchmen real problems.
Shkendija v AC Milan: Rossoneri win, over 3.5 goals appeals – 8/5*
Rejuvenated thanks to major Chinese investment this summer, AC Milan look back on track after years in both the Serie A and European wilderness.
Vincenzo Montella’s men put six past Macedonian side Shkendija in the 1st leg without reply.
Continuing their superb form, Milan opened their league campaign with a 3-0 victory over Crotone.
With such goal scoring form, back the San Siro side to win and over 3.5 goals at 8/5 with betway.
Athletic Bilbao v Panathinaikos: Basques win 2nd leg, both team score – 21/10*
After going 2-0 down away to Panathinaikos in Athens, Athletic Bilbao rallied to score three goals in under 10 minutes to swing the tie in their favour.
This fixture has goals written all over it; but, with Basque Country club Bilbao at home in the formidable San Mames, expect them to come out on top with both sides scoring at 21/10 with betway.
