Bet In-Play on UEFA Europa Cup TonightPublished August 8, 2013 by OCR Editor
58 European clubs participate in second legs of UEFA third round tonight.
If you have been feeling starved of football/soccer over the summer months, then all that is about to end. A bumper weekend of European football action begins Thursday night as 58 teams compete in second leg matches in the third qualifying round of UEFA's second-tier comp the Europa Cup.
This isn't quite the UEFA Champions League, but nonetheless there are plenty of big teams in action tonight: Swansea will be representing the Barclays Premier League as they defend a 4-0 lead over Malmo, while Sevilla, Motherwell, Udinese, Club Brugge, Maccabi Haifa, Stuttgart and Red Star Belgrade are among the other participants.
Many of the fixtures were deadlocked after the first leg, while others will see teams trying to overcome deficits of up to three or four goals. At the end of it all, the next Europa League round will be composed of tonight's 29 winners plus 18 automatic entrants and 15 losers from the Champs League qualifying rounds.
William Hill Sports brings you the full range of betting markets on every one of tonight's Europa League matches, including match result, headline offers, scorers and corners, the ever-popular 5- minute markets, and player specials.
Check out headline offers such as the big special on tonight's Malmo-Swansea game: Hill is offering 5/2 on Wilfried Bony to score and Swansea to win, or 6/1 on Tokelo Rantie to score and Malmo to win - but if these players do not take to the pitch, the customer gets money back on the wager.
Of course, the most exciting thing about online betting these days is live betting. As usual, customers of Hill's online sportsbook will be able to place an in-play wager on any of tonight's games, with odds updated in real-time as the action is played out on the pitch.
