Everton v Dynamo Kiev predictions and betting tips for tonight’s Europa League match with the best free football tips.
Everton face off against Dynamo Kiev in their Europa League last 16 clash on Thursday night. The match is live on ITV at 20:05 and here are some free football betting tips.
Following a terrible previous round for British clubs, Everton now find themselves the only team left in the competition. After coasting through the group stage, they were handed a tricky looking tie against Young Boys of Switzerland. However, The Toffees dished out an absolute thumping over the two legs, with record signing Romelu Lukaku scoring five of the goals.
In stark contrast to their European form, Everton are really struggling in the Premier League at present. Roberto Martinez's men have not won in their last five matches and have only managed two goals during that period. On paper, Everton should be a top six team which is why seeing the Merseyside club festering in 14th place is all the more surprising. Nevertheless, they are never likely to threaten the relegation zone, and with the Europa League now a potential window into the Champions League, Thursday's encounter takes on some added significance.
Opponents Dynamo Kiev also had a steady run through the group stage but were pushed all the way in the last round by French outfit Guingamp. After losing the first leg in France, Kiev battled back into the tie and recorded an excellent 3-1 home win to set up their meeting with Everton in the last 16.
Unlike their hosts, Kiev's league form is outstanding. Currently on a 16 match unbeaten run, they sit top of the Ukrainian Premier League and have only conceded seven goals all season. Cynics can point to the fact that Dynamo Kiev are no longer the European powerhouse of old and that their league is sub-standard, but this is certainly a game many teams would have wanted to avoid. Short of an all-inclusive to Syria, I can't think of many worse places to visit at the moment, let alone play football in.
Browsing the early odds and you can get a decent price on an Everton win at 13/10. Considering, their form in the competition already, anything over even money is well worth a look. Kiev can be backed at a best priced 5/2, with the draw on offer at 12/5.
Again, this won't be easy for the The Toffees but I think they should have enough to take an advantage over to the Ukraine – This is where the key game will be. Everton have beaten the likes of Lille and Wolfsburg at Goodison this season, so back them to win the first leg at 13/10 with Bet Victor.
Moving into the goalscoring market and despite swinging like a rusty gate in the Premier League, Romulu Lukaku's five goals in his last two Europa games cannot go unnoticed. Although I can't see Kiev being as open as Everton's last opponents, the Belgian international always has his chances, and never lets his head go down if he fluffs a couple. Back Lukaku to score first with Betfred under their DD/HH promotion at 4/1.
