Our selection of both teams to score comfortably paid out in a 3-2 win for Celta, yet the Belgian side will feel they have a decent chance of making it through to the last four of the competition.
They will have to try and keep a lively Celta forward line quiet however, which is no easy task and even with practically their entire first eleven rested at the weekend, the Galicians managed to put three goals past Granada in La Liga.
Both teams to score which once more looks like a tempting option is priced at more realistic odds of 8/15 (1.53) this week making it less appealing, although it is hard to envisage either side keeping a clean sheet.
This season, backing over 2.5 goals in Celta's La Liga matches has generally proved profitable with their league matches averaging 3.19 goals, and the price of 8/13 (1.62) is available for investing in at least three goals to be scored on Thursday night.
Perhaps a smarter way to back a high scoring match however is to invest in Celta to score over 1.5 goals at evens (2.00). This selection has paid out seven times in the Europa League this season, while domestically Celta's total of 48 goals scored is only bettered by five teams in La Liga.
