Sparta Prague vs. Brondby (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Sparta Prague welcome Brondby to the Generali Arena for their final Group A match in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Neither side can qualify for the last 32, but both are still in with a chance of finishing third in the group, with the hosts just needing to avoid defeat to advance into the Europa Conference League.

We say: Sparta Prague 2-1 Brondby


The last encounter between Sparta Prague and Brondby was cagey; however, we are expecting a more open match on Thursday, as both sides bid to keep their European campaigns alive.

The Iron Sparta only need a draw to seal third place in Group A, but we feel that they have a stronger squad that can secure a slender victory on home soil.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Lyon vs. Rangers (Thursday, 5.45pm)

The top two sides in Group A who have already qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League will lock horns on Thursday night, as Lyon welcome Rangers to the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

Les Gones have only lost one of their last 11 home matches in the competition, while the Gers have failed to win each of their last four European games on the road.

We say: Lyon 1-1 Rangers


The pressure will be off for both Lyon and Rangers when they enter the field of play on Thursday, as their places in the last 32 have already been sealed.

With rotation expected from both teams, a closely-fought encounter could be on the cards at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais, which may see the spoils shared.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Real Sociedad vs. PSV (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Real Sociedad play host to PSV Eindhoven on Thursday evening knowing that only victory will do if they want to progress through to the Europa League knockout stages.

Meanwhile, PSV, who can no longer finish top of Group B, require just a point in Spain to book their place in the last 32 of the competition.

We say: Real Sociedad 1-1 PSV Eindhoven


With home advantage in their favour, Sociedad will feel that they can shake off their recent poor form to keep their hopes of Europa League success alive. However, we are backing PSV to claim the draw that they need to edge out their hosts, potentially finding a late goal to earn a share of the spoils.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Sturm Graz vs. Monaco (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Monaco head into Thursday's fixture with Sturm Graz having already sealed their place in the last 16 of the Europa League.

With the home side unable to qualify for the Europa Conference League, both clubs have little to play for in their final Group B game.

We say: Sturm Graz 0-2 Monaco


With both managers likely to make widespread changes, this is a difficult contest to call. Nevertheless, Monaco will want to go through the group unbeaten, potentially leading to an extra edge in the final third.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Legia vs. Spartak Moscow (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Only two points separate the four clubs in Europa League Group C before Thursday's final matchday, so Legia Warsaw host Spartak Moscow still able to finish anywhere between second and last.

While Spartak will top the group if they secure three points and Leicester fail to beat Napoli - or finish second if they match the English side's result - Legia simply must win in Warsaw to progress.

We say: Legia Warsaw 1-2 Spartak Moscow


With Legia currently in disarray, this is as good a time as any for Spartak to visit Stadion Wojska Polskiego, and even some men missing in attack should not deter them from leaving with maximum points.

The result in Naples may still determine their destiny, but the Russian side can guarantee some continental football in the spring, while their Polish counterparts bow out.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Napoli vs. Leicester (Thursday, 5.45pm)

As the group phase reaches its climax, qualification from Europa League Group C is in the balance on Thursday night, when Napoli host Leicester City at Stadio Maradona.

While the Foxes will finish first if they win or both games are drawn, they could even progress with a loss. Meanwhile, the Serie A side must take three points to ensure a place in the knockout stage.

We say: Napoli 2-2 Leicester City


While Napoli's need is greater, that may play into the hands of Leicester, who can afford to strike on the counter using their abundant guile and pace.

The sheer volume of key men missing for the Partenopei may not be surmountable, and taking just a point from a potentially wide-open encounter would see them slide into the Conference League knockout round for finishing third.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Antwerp vs. Olympiacos (Thursday, 5.45pm)

The final gameweek of the Europa League group stages takes place on Thursday, when Greek outfit Olympiacos travel to Belgium, where they will face Royal Antwerp at the Bosuil Stadion.

Olympiacos are guaranteed a place in the knockout rounds as they are four points clear of third-placed Fenerbahce, but they will be aiming to leapfrog Frankfurt into top spot, while Antwerp have only two points from their five matches in this competition so far.

We say: Royal Antwerp 0-2 Olympiacos


Royal Antwerp effectively have nothing to play for on Thursday as they are already out of the competition, which should give Olympiacos extra confidence of going to Belgium and travelling home with three points.

The visitors are expected to finish the group stages strongly against the bottom-placed side, and back up their 1-0 win against Fenerbahce with another clean sheet.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Fenerbahce vs. Frankfurt (Thursday, 5.45pm)

Eintracht Frankfurt head into Thursday's encounter at Fenerbahce requiring a draw to guarantee their place in the Europa League last 16.

Meanwhile, having already ensured that they will play Europa League Conference football next year, Fenerbahce have little to play for in their closing Group D fixture.

We say: Fenerbahce 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt


While a trip to Turkey can be intimidating, Frankfurt head into this contest as the favourites. With more on the line, we expected a sharp performance from the visitors, who could prevail by the odd goal in three.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Ludogorets vs. Midtjylland (Thursday, 8.00pm)

FC Midtjylland will travel to Bulgaria for the final matchday of the Europa League group stage knowing that only victory will do if they are to progress to the knockout rounds.

They will come up against a Ludogorets Razgrad side who are already eliminated, but they will be hoping to claim their first win of the group phase on Thursday.

We say: Ludogorets Razgrad 1-2 FC Midtjylland


It could be a nervy evening for the visitors in Bulgaria, but after consecutive victories in the Europa League, we think that Midtjlland will collect the victory they require to reach the Europa League knockout stages.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Braga vs. Red Star (Thursday, 8.00pm)

The top two in Group F will meet when Braga host Red Star Belgrade in the final matchday of the Europa League group stage.

Both teams will be targeting victory, with the two sides fully aware that a draw may not be enough to guarantee qualification to the knockout stages.

We say: Braga 3-2 Red Star Belgrade


With only a point separating the two sides in the group, Thursday's contest will be a close encounter, but after winning their two home group games, we think that Braga will utilise home advantage to claim all three points.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Lazio vs. Galatasaray (Thursday, 8.00pm)

With first place in Europa League Group E yet to be decided, second-placed Lazio prepare to welcome group leaders Galatasaray to the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday.

Nothing less than a win will do for Maurizio Sarri's side, who sit three points below their visitors heading into the final matchday.

We say: Lazio 1-1 Galatasaray


The absence of Cicaldau for Galatasaray and potential loss of Immobile for Lazio are bitter blows to both sides, and the Biancocelesti have been far from consistent in league and continental action this term.

Terim's men also struggle to get over the line away from home, but if star man Immobile misses out as expected, we have confidence in Galatasaray's ability to claim a draw and cement their position atop the group.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Marseille vs. Lokomotiv (Thursday, 8.00pm)

With only a spot in the Europa Conference League on the line, Marseille and Lokomotiv Moscow prepare for battle in Europa League Group E on Thursday night.

Jorge Sampaoli's side are currently third in the section with four points to their name, while their Russian counterparts are two points worse off heading into the final matchday.

We say: Marseille 2-0 Lokomotiv Moscow


Facing an injury-hit Lokomotiv side lacking any real midfield presence represents the perfect opportunity for Marseille and Sampaoli to get back on track - even if a top-two finish is now out of the question.

Gidsol's side are low on numbers, low on confidence and will simply be waiting for the final whistle to blow in Group E, so we can only back Les Olympiens to claim a confidence-boosting win.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Celtic vs. Real Betis (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Scottish Premiership giants Celtic will host Real Betis for their final Group G encounter in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The visitors have already booked their place in the last 32, while Ange Postecoglou's men will finish third in the group, meaning they will drop down into the inaugural Europa Conference League.

We say: Celtic 1-2 Real Betis


An entertaining encounter with plenty of goalmouth action could be on the cards once again, with both Celtic and Real Betis knowing that the pressure is off as their fate in the Europa League has already been confirmed.

Both sides are expected to rotate their starting lineups, but we feel that the visitors may just edge this contest and claim their sixth successive win across all competitions.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Ferencvaros vs. B. Leverkusen (Thursday, 8.00pm)

Bayer Leverkusen will travel to Budapest for their final Europa League Group H encounter against basement club Ferencvaros on Thursday night.

The visitors have already qualified for the last 32 as group winners, while the hosts are hoping to avoid a sixth straight defeat.

We say: Ferencvaros 0-2 Bayer Leverkusen


Even though Leverkusen are expected to rotate their starting lineup, they will be the strong favourites to come away with all three points on Thursday.

With several fringe players looking to take their chance in the first XI and impress Seoane, a routine victory seems to be on the cards at the Groupama Arena.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Genk vs. Rapid Vienna (Thursday, 8.00pm)

The final match of Group H will take place on Thursday night when Rapid Vienna travel to face Genk in what is a crucial match to determine who finishes in second place.

While the visitors cannot mathematically progress into the next round, this is a must-win match for the hosts who could potentially get into the knockout stage.

We say: Genk 1-1 Rapid Vienna


Both teams come into this game with poor form in all competitions and the lack of drive that they have each shown lately could result in this match ending as a draw.

Sharing the points would guarantee that neither club continues in the Europa League, but with the lack of confidence that they have, it would be hard for either team to dominate this one.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

West Ham vs. Dinamo Zagreb (Thursday, 8.00pm)

West Ham United will look to wrap up the group stage of the Europa League in style on Thursday when they host Dinamo Zagreb, having the chance to finish undefeated.

While the Hammers have already secured qualification to the next round, a defeat could knock the visitors out, adding plenty of pressure onto this fixture.

We say: West Ham United 2-1 Dinamo Zagreb


Even though West Ham United have already qualified for the next round, the squad will still be keen to win this and finish the group stage undefeated.

Coming off a strong Premier League victory, the Hammers should have enough quality and confidence to see them through, even though it will be a tough test.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
