Key Stat: PAOK have won two of their last six Europa League ties

Expert Verdict: Chelsea begin their Europa League journey at PAOK and their trip to Greece should prove worthwhile. The Blues have made a promising start under the attack-minded Maurizio Sarri and can outclass their Greek hosts, who were thumped 4-1 at home to Benfica in a Champions League qualifier this term.

Recommendation: Chelsea

Key Stat: Rangers have scored ten goals in five league games

Expert Verdict: Villarreal earned their first La Liga win of the season last time out and look justifiably warm favourites to beat Rangers in their opening Europa League group stage fixture. Rangers have been hot in front of goal, however, both domestically and in Europe and they should be backed to grab a consolation.

Recommendation: Villarreal 2-1

Key Stat: Vorskla have lost five of their last six away matches

Expert Verdict: Arsenal reached the Europa League semi-finals last season and a home clash with Ukrainian side Vorskla Poltava is unlikely to cause them any problems. The visitors sit seventh after seven games in the Ukrainian top flight and they ultimately lack the resources to compete with the Gunners.

Recommendation: Arsenal 3-0

Key Stat: Celtic have scored twice in their last four league games

Expert Verdict: Celtic find themselves in the unusual position of being five points off the pace in Scotland’s top flight and Rosenborg can make life tough for their misfiring attackers. Celtic beat Rosenborg 3-1 on aggregate in Champions League qualifying, but they have hit a flat spot since and this could be tight.

Recommendation: Under 2.5 goals
