Significant scoring, for both rivals, in the two qualifying positions of the group. Both teams score and concede the goal easily and I expect an open game with many goalsPSV EINDHOVEN vs SPORTING CP @@ +2.50 Over, odds 1.65

Two teams that competed in the Europa League last year face each other for their first match of the sixth group, with Eintracht Frankfurt welcoming Arsenal. However, both are not in good shape and mainly defensive, but this does not affect seeing good play

Manchester United vs FC Astana

The Europa League group stages kick-off tonight and one match that could see some goals is the tie between Premier League side Manchester United and Kazakhstan Premier League club FC Astana in an 8pm kick-off at Old Trafford. All the pressure is on the Red Devils to get the win here but is there any chance of an upset from the side from Eastern Europe?

Manchester United ended last season terribly under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and things haven't been a lot better this season so far. United have had a mixed start to the campaign. The highlight being the opening weekend 4-0 win over Chelsea. The lowest point being the 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace. A 1-0 win at home against a dangerous Leicester side on the weekend will give them confidence heading into this game but they can't afford to take FC Astana for granted.

FC Astana have become seasoned European characters. The Kazakhstan side thrived under the management of former Bulgarian professional footballer Stanimir Stoilov over the past few years. Stoilov's departure for the Kazakhstan national team managerial role appears to not have damaged the squad too much. The club retained the domestic league title last season but are currently in 3rd place and 5 points behind league leaders Tobol but they do have two games in hand on their rivals. A defeat to Romanian side CFR Cluj in the Champions League 1st Qualifying Round saw them drop into the Europa League. The Blue and Yellows then navigated their way past Andorra's Santa Coloma, Valletta of Malta, and Belarus club BATE Borisov to reach this stage of the competition.

I've got no doubt in my mind that United should win this and the odds offered by the bookies suggests they think the same. I think Solskjaer's tactics are more vulnerable to sides that sit back and defend but I think they have to be able to break teams like FC Astana down. It would be foolish of Solskjaer to play a weakened side because it could leave them vulnerable to a sucker punch. I'd not be surprised if United seal a business-like 2-0 or 3-0 win. FC Astana will be doing everything possible to kill this game though.

Wolves vs Braga

The Europa League journey continues for Premier League side Wolves tonight when they host Portuguese club Braga at Molineux for an 8pm BST kick-off. Both teams come into this game with aspirations of getting through this group to reach the last 32 of the competition. Getting their group stage campaign off to a winning start is the aim for these two sides.

Wolves have endured a terrible start to their Premier League season. Nuno Santo's side have failed to win a single league game so far and have now lost back-to-back league games. It is early season form that has left them in 19th place in the table with only Watford below them. Fortunately, their form in Europe has been a bit better with Wanderers winning every single one of their qualification matches against Northern Ireland's Crusaders, Pyunik of Armenia, and Italian side Torino.

Braga are also in a similar position to Wolves. Ricardo Sa Pinto's men are languishing at the bottom end of the Portuguese Primeira Liga with just 4 points gained from their 5 league matches. However, form in European competition is far more encouraging with the Archbishops (unusual nickname for a football club!) winning every qualification game in this competition with aggregate wins over Danish club Brondby and Russian club Spartak Moscow.

This game might feel like a relief for both sides as they can put their domestic turbulence to one side and focus on the stress-free Europa League. It's tough to call with Braga arguably having had the tougher fixtures in this competition so far but Wolves did deliver the goods against a very capable Torino. I think I have to back Wolves to win this one but I'd be surprised if they kept a clean sheet given some of the defending on display over the weekend.
