Bet £5 on Zorya v Athletic Bilbao and claim £20 in Free Bets with Coral
Group J in this season’s Europa League has proven to be a pretty tight affair with surprise group leaders Ostersund enjoying a two-point lead at the top of the table. Second-placed Athletic Bilbao currently sit two points above tonight’s opponents Zorya, therefore with much at stake, we’re expecting a pretty tense affair in Luhansk this evening.
The visitors have been struggling in their domestic campaign and sit firmly in the bottom half of the Spanish top-flight as things stand. They have failed to win any of their last seven La Liga outings although their most recent game ended in a creditable goal-less draw with Real Madrid in front of their home fans.

The previous meeting between these sides ended in a 1-0 win for Zorya in Spain although on this occasion, the Spaniards don’t need to go all-out for the win. Indeed the visitors could simply park the bus and force a low-score draw and this is exactly what we expect to see. Zorya need to win to remain in the competition and as such they will look to keep things tight at the back and grab a winner along the way, much as they did in the reverse fixture.
A mistake for either side could prove to be extremely costly, therefore we envisage a low-scoring and tense affair which will likely end with the spoils being shared. A great result for Bilbao but not so for Zorya.
