Betting preview and tips for Dynamo Kiev vs Everton in tonight’s Europa League match – Everton lead 2-1 from the first leg last week.
Everton take a slender advantage to the Ukraine tonight as they face off against Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League. The match is live on ITV at 18:00pm and here are our free football betting tips.
After a sloppy first half an hour last week, Everton were really on the ropes against a dangerous looking Kiev side that had already taken an early lead thanks to a well worked set-piece goal. The match needed someone to step up to the plate, and that man was Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian international bulldozed his way through the defence before picking out Steven Naismith for the equaliser just before half time. From that moment on, The Toffees dominated, and despite squandering several chances, picked up a deserved win thanks to a late Lukaku penalty.
Last week's victory continued Everton's fine form in the Europa League this year. Roberto Martinez's men have seen off the likes of Wolfsburg and Lille on their march to the knockout stages, but now face the unenviable task of a trip to the Ukraine in order to finish the job against Kiev. They do so off the back of a fine 3 points at home to Newcastle at the weekend. A win that ended a five match run without a victory and saw Lukaku net another spot-kick.
Opponents Kiev will certainly be disappointed they didn't take full advantage of Everton's poor start to the game last week. The Merseysiders were there for the taking before the equaliser but the Eastern European side failed to capitalise. They did look very dangerous on the break, though, and overturned the same scoreline in the last round against French side Guingamp. This is likely to be The Toffees toughest test to date.
Furthermore, Sergiey Rebrov's men have warmed up nicely for Thursday's crunch tie with yet another domestic home win, and a 5-0 whooping at that. Kiev have yet to taste defeat in 17 games in the league and have only conceded one goal at home all season long. Granted the Ukrainian Premier League makes Scottish football look like the Harlem Globetrotters, but that is an impressive record nonetheless.
Prices for the second leg tie have Dynamo Kiev as clear favourites at 11/10. Everton can be backed at odds as long as 29/10, with the draw on offer at 13/5.
Considering Kiev's excellent defensive record at home and the fact Everton only need a draw to progress, I can see this match being a bit of a stinker for the neutrals out there. At 13/5 with Bet365, back the draw outright for our first Dynamo Kiev v Everton betting tip tonight, along with under 2.5 goals at 5/4 with Coral. Since the turn of the year, every one of the Toffees away games in the Premier League has been under 2.5 goals, as have all their away matches in the group stage of the Europa League.
Finally for a little dip into the goalscoring market for the last tip in tonight's betting preview and Dynamo Kiev midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko looked very lively in his performance at Goodison Park last week. The Ukrainian footballer of the year also scored twice in his last league game a couple of days ago, and even nearly moved to Merseyside rivals Liverpool last season. Back Yarmolenko to score anytime at 9/4 with Bet365.
