UEL Quarterfinal Betting Odds: Second Leg Preview

Manchester United Blow First Leg Lead

Feyenoord and Juventus Hold Advantages

All of the matches were tight in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League Quarterfinal. Manchester United blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Sevilla on a pair of own goals and Union Saint-Gilloise got a crucial road draw at Bayer Leverkusen. Meanwhile, Feyenoord and Juventus managed one-goal wins vs. Roma and Sporting, respectively. A lot can change come Thursday and there could certainly be some drama. Let’s take a look at the UEL Quarterfinal betting odds ahead of this week’s excellent slate of games.

UEL Quarterfinals Matches

ROM Roma vs Feyenoord FEY

Date, time:

Feyenoord avenged last season’s UEFA Europa Conference League final loss to Roma by defeating them 1-0 last Thursday. Feyenoord’s Mats Wieffer scored a long-range half volley to give the hosts a one-goal advantage. Roma are down but absolutely not out.

The Giallorossi have advanced in their last three European knockout fixtures when they’ve trailed by one goal after the first leg. Jose Mourinho’s side also bounced back on Sunday by defeating Udinese 3-0 in Serie A.

The Europa League odds price Feyenoord as -155 favorites to qualify while Roma come in at +125 odds to overturn the deficit and advance. For the second leg, the Giallorossi are 0.5-goal favorites and show -115 ATS and moneyline odds. While Tammy Abraham and Paulo Dybala got injured in last week’s match they could both be available come Thursday. Still, Feyenoord also show -115 odds to cover the spread, which would mean they advance. The visitors, who are the current Dutch Eredivisie leaders, are +315 moneyline underdogs here, though.

Feyenoord also got a 3-0 win on Sunday as they blew out last-placed SC Cambuur. Santiago Gimenez got on the scoresheet for a seventh time in his last eight appearances. He failed to score last week vs. Roma but leads the Europa League with 1.43 goals per 90 minutes.

Roma will be wary of the Mexican international and goals are expected to come at a premium here. Under 2.5 goals sit at -140 odds but the visitors are on a 26-game scoring streak. They’ll only need a draw to advance here, as a deadlock displays +270 odds.

USG Union Saint-Gilloise vs Bayer Leverkusen B04

Date, time:

Union Saint-Gilloise are the biggest underdogs remaining in the 2022-23 Europa League but continue to impress. In their first appearance in a European competition since 1965, USG are in an excellent position heading into the second leg of the Quarterfinal. The Belgian club got a hard-fought draw in Germany last Thursday and just need to win in front of their home fans to advance.

USG’s Victor Boniface scored the opening goal in the first leg and is now a joint-leading scorer in the competition. The 22-year old will fancy his chances to score again but Leverkusen have been incredibly difficult to beat lately. Florian Wirtz has been excellent since returning from injury and the teenager scored the game-tying goal last week.

With Leverkusen on an 11-match unbeaten run, the UEL Quarterfinal betting odds price the Germans as road favorites. Xabi Alonso’s side come in at +105 ATS and moneyline odds, while USG are +255 moneyline underdogs.

Union Saint-Gilloise are on a nine-match unbeaten run of their own and USG +0.5 shows -135 odds heading into this one. A draw would mean extra time, which is currently priced at +260 odds. While Leverkusen’s Patrik Schick continues to recover from a groin injury, Exequiel Palacios missed Sunday’s match. It’s unclear whether either will play come Thursday.

Meanwhile, no USG players are currently reported on the injury list. Defender Siebe Van Der Heyden is on track to return from a suspension on Thursday as well. Although one might expect neither team to leave themselves vulnerable while they protect their position, over 2.5 goals display -120 odds for the match. Leverkusen are the favorites to advance, at -190 odds. Regardless, this should be an excellent match to watch between two in-form teams

SFC Sevilla vs Manchester United MUN

Date, time:

Marcel Sabitzer scored his first brace for Manchester United in the first half of last week’s match vs. Sevilla. Man U had a 2-0 lead within the first half hour and it looked like they’d cruise to a victory. Sevilla struggled to create good opportunities but they were relentless in the closing stages.

An 84th minute Jesus Navas cross was deflected in for an own goal by Manchester United’s Tyrell Malacia. Bizarrely, another own goal tied the match up. A Youssef En-Nesyri header deflected off of Harry Maguire’s head and into the back of the Manchester United net. Sevilla managed a draw seemingly out of thin air and a win on Thursday in Spain will see them through.

It’s been a rollercoaster ride of a season for Sevilla. They started the season in the Champions League, spent time in the La Liga relegation zone but have picked things up lately. Meanwhile, Man U finished in second in the Group E UEL standings and have already knocked out two Spanish teams.

United defeated Barcelona in the playoff round and managed a 5-1 aggregate victory over Real Betis in the round of 16. If the Red Devils win here, they can make it three for three. Erik ten Hag’s side are -180 favorites to advance despite some key absences.

Center backs Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez will definitely be out Thursday, with Luke Shaw a doubt. It’s unlikely forward and leading scorer Marcus Rashford will be an option either.

Maguire and Bruno Fernandes are also suspended, which means United have very few options. Regardless, United are 0.5-goal favorites at even ATS and moneyline odds. Sevilla are -130 favorites to cover but are +255 moneyline underdogs.

Bettors can take a draw at +275 odds and it’d mean a thrilling 30 minutes of extra time. With four goals in last Thursday’s matchup, the odds imply there will be goals once again. Currently, over 2.5 goals sit at a -125 price.

SPO Sporting vs Juventus JUV

Date, time:

Sporting had more of the ball and more chances in the first leg at Juventus but couldn’t manage to find a breakthrough. Instead, it was Juve’s Federico Gatti who converted a rebound to give Juventus a 1-0 lead in the fixture. The Bianconeri have a difficult trip ahead of them in Lisbon, where Sporting haven’t lost since February.

With a draining match behind them, neither Sporting nor Juventus managed to win their league matches on Sunday. To stay alive in the Europa League, Sporting absolutely need to win here.

The latest UEL Quarterfinal betting odds list this match as a pick’em. Home side Sporting are favorites to cover, at -160 odds, while Juventus pk shows a +130 price. Juventus have won four consecutive Europa League matches, though, and have kept clean sheets in each. Massimiliano Allegri’s Juve come in at just +230 odds to extend the streak to five.

Sporting have, somewhat strangely, managed to advance this far without winning a home match in the knockout stage. They drew with Arsenal in the round of 16 and vs. Midtjylland in the playoff round at the Estadio Jose Alvalade. In fact, Sporting have failed to win each of their last four home matches in European competition. They are +130 favorites to win here, though.

While Sporting have a dangerous attack, with the likes of Francisco Trincao, Pedro Goncalves and Marcus Edwards, they’ve failed to score in two of their last four matches. Meanwhile, Juve lost 1-0 to Sassuolo on Sunday and haven’t scored more than one goal in each of their last six matches.

It should come as no surprise that under 2.5 goals display -150 odds for Thursday’s match. Only one of Juve’s five matches in the Europa League has finished with three or more goals. A draw will be enough for Allegri’s Juve to advance and one is priced at +225 odds here.
