The Europa League has been drowned well below all the noise about the clash between Manchester United and PSG and other UCL games.
Since February kicked in, fans have spent more time focusing on the mouth-watering clashes to be played in the Champions League. However, and this is true, the Europa League has a way of serving up its own kind of drama.
32 teams remain in the competition as the battle for the title rumbles on this month. From hence, it’ll be all about
- Making your home advantage count
- Scoring as many goals away from home as possible
- Winning both legs outrightly to avoid complications
Of the games to be played this week, some of them you should look out for include:
Fernabache vs. Zenit
Both sides are well known in Europe. Turkey has always been one of the most dreaded places to play away football in. Just like in North Africa, the fans know how to get behind their teams. And Zenit will have a lot of work on their hands, especially with Fernabache’s superb home form
Can Zenit break that streak and defeat them?

Celtic vs. Valencia
The Scottish giants have had a formidable run in their domestic league. On Thursday, they face a different type of opponent in the form of a Valencia side that has not lost any of its last five games. Celtic will head into this one knowing that they have only lost once in their last 20 home games played.
Malmo FF vs. Chelsea
The Blues travel to Sweden after their embarrassing defeat to Manchester City. It’s yet another away game for the Blues, one they’re largely expected to win. Chelsea can take advantage of the fact that the Swedish side has only been playing friendly games since the turn of the year.

Lazio vs. Sevilla
These two sides face the same domestic issue: the struggle to finish in a top four spot in their domestic leagues. It is the first meeting between both sides. Lazio will look to take advantage of Sevilla’s recent terrible away form. They have only scored four in their last five away games, conceding an average of two goals per game that run.
BATE vs. Arsenal
They may have only met twice in history but Arsenal definitely loves to play against the Belarusian outfit. Both sides have met twice in history, with Arsenal scoring an average of 5 goals in each game. Although they conceded twice in those meetings, the superiority of the Gunners sure looks good enough to continue.
Since all of these games will be played on St. Valentine’s Day, how do you intend to show yourself some love with these games? Share your thoughts with us by dropping your comments.
