UEFA Europa League > Weds 22 & Thurs 23 February in Europa League Predictions Posted February 23, 2012 Re: UEFA Europa League > Weds 22 & Thurs 23 February My favorite bets for tonight: Twente-Steaua Over 2.5 goals at 1.8 (bet365) Man United - Ajax Ajax+1.5 at 1.775 (bet365) One success and one failure. Ajax game totally went the way I expected, I even feel sorry I didn't trust Ajax more. United proved once again they are really lazy when they lack real incentive to win. On the other hand, Twente-Steaua - a big time disappointment! F*cking tournament defensive mentality!!! Teams who enjoys scoring that much were so scared to attack tonight, it was hurting watching that game. And particularly Steaua - they needed to score two goals and they never took a minimum risk, even in the last 15 minutes. Huge lesson from League Europe: tournament mentality is very strong and teams are so cautious and risk-averse, that it is always a winning strategy to be looking for unders. I made a big profit betting live this evening, and all my bets were for either no more goals to be scored, or just one more (the bets were around half-time). Live Betting seems to be the better options for tournament battles!!!
