Free betting tips - Тicket of the day

It is certain that bettors will be occupied today by the first matches of the round of 16 in the Europa League and the Conference League. There are 16 games being played, so there is enough material for compiling betting slips. The odds were current at the time of making the suggestions.

Young Boys – Sporting – GG @ 1.65 at Mozzartbet

The Swiss are coming from the Champions League and the guests from the Europa League. In the past, this would have been enough to clearly determine the favorite, but the Portuguese league is still stronger than the Swiss league, and therefore, at least in our opinion, Sporting has a better chance of advancing to the round of 16. As for the first match, the “young boys” will have to take advantage of the home field if they plan to be competitive in Lisbon. In the Swiss Super League, they are no longer so dominant, losing points more frequently, but they will most likely win the title again. In the Champions League, they couldn’t compete with City and Leipzig, but in the two-legged tie with Red Star, they took 4 points, which kept them in Europe. Sporting finished second in their Europa League group, behind Atalanta and ahead of Sturm and Rakow. The Lions’ excellent form was demonstrated in Saturday’s match against Braga, which they won 5-0. Europe is a different story, Young Boys have scored against both City and Leipzig, so they should also score against Sporting.

Our suggestion is to bet on both teams to score (gg), for which the Mozzartbet bookmaker offers odds of 1.65.

Shakhtar – Olimpique Marseille – 1X @ 1.66 at Mozzartbet

The Ukrainians are already accustomed to playing as hosts in Hamburg, where they have even defeated a team like Barcelona, but this is no longer the same Shakhtar as before. The team has few foreigners; mostly, it’s young local players wearing the Donetsk team’s jersey, and therefore, their chances in Europe are not great. They managed to finish third in their Champions League group, leaving Antwerp behind, but Barcelona and Porto were ahead of them. The Ukrainian championship, if the war does not escalate, is set to resume only at the end of February, which could be a complicating factor for Shakhtar ahead of their tie with Olympique. However, they have played many preparatory matches during the break, trying to maintain their form. The team from Marseille is in full rhythm but far from their best form. Marseille has not won in the last four rounds of Ligue 1 and has also been knocked out of the domestic cup. The Ukrainians are motivated and we believe they will not lose, at least in the first match.

For a double chance on Shakhtar (1X), Mozzartbet offers odds of 1.66.

Sturm – Slovan B. – fr 1 @ 1.76 at Mozzartbet

Sturm Graz is a serious contender this season to end Salzburg’s decade-long dominance in the Austrian Bundesliga. They demonstrated this six days ago when they played a 1:1 draw with the Bulls in Salzburg, maintaining the same two-point distance from the champions. There’s enough time for the battle with the Red Bulls, but for now, the primary goal for the Graz team is to break into the round of 16 of the Conference League. They played in the Europa League, finishing third in their group behind Sporting and Atalanta, and only thanks to a better head-to-head score, they left the Polish team Rakow behind. Against the champions of Slovakia, they are favorites, at least on their home ground. Slovan Bratislava played in the Conference League group with French Lille and two somewhat weaker teams, Ljubljana’s Olimpija and debutant Breidablik from Iceland. In their domestic league, they are still the best, as they proved in the first match of the spring part, where they thrashed second-placed Zilina away with a 4:0 victory.

However, for the first match, we suggest betting on a home win (fr 1), for which Mozzartbet offers odds of 1.90.

St. Gilloise – Eintr. Frankfurt – t1 over 1.5 @ 2.15 at Mozzartbet

One of the derbies of this round is played between the leader of the Belgian championship and Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt. Royal Union has incredibly missed out on the title in the Jupiler League for two years, but it seems that this season they won’t let another chance slip away. They have a significant advantage over their rivals, but their last two performances are concerning. In the first match of the cup semifinal, they lost to Club Brugge, and over the weekend, they failed to beat the much weaker Westerlo. They have an opportunity to break out of this mini-crisis in the match against Eintracht, a team that is not in good form in the German Bundesliga. The Eagles from Frankfurt were first defeated in Cologne and then failed to win against Bochum at home. Since these are rivals from the bottom of the table, it’s clear that the team from Europe’s banking center is five points behind in the fight for a place in Europe. Eintracht won the Europa League two years ago and therefore played quite well in the Champions League last season. Therefore, they should not be written off in the Conference League, although we think they will pay the price for their poor form and that Royal Union will score at least twice against them in the first match.

For t1 over 1.5 goals, Mozzartbet offers odds of 2.15.
