AVB 7-2 for Chelsea clash in Europa League
TOTTENHAM made sure there will be four Premier League teams in the Europa League knockout phase and Andre Villas-Boas could be on a collision course with former club and London rivals Chelsea.
Bet365 are offering 7-2 that AVB takes on Chelsea in Europe’s secondary competition, while it’s 33-1 the duo clash in the final in Amsterdam. Tottenham are 14-1 to win the Europa League in a competitive field headed by current holders Atletico Madrid, who are 8-1 favourites with BetVictor.
Villas-Boas said it was “unfair” that Chelsea were allowed to drop out of the Champions League into the Europa League following their failed campaign and the Blues are being quoted at 10-1 to add the one title to their trophy cabinet.
Liverpool and Newcastle can be backed at 16-1 and 33-1 respectively in a high-class field which includes teams such as Anzhi and Inter (both 14-1), Zenit (16-1), Napoli and Lyon (20-1) with Benfica and Lazio on offer at 25-1.
