Friday sees the second leg of Europa League knockout round action, with four English or Scottish teams in action.

Tottenham has moved on after eliminating Austrian side Wolfsberger AC, while Rangers, Arsenal, Manchester United and Leicester City can join them in the next round.

Manchester United are best placed, with a 4-0 lead over Real Sociedad, while Rangers scored four away goals, but only lead Antwerp 4-3.

Both Arsenal and Leicester are in tight tussles, with the Gunners meeting Benfica with a 1-1 aggregate score and the Foxes in a 0-0 battle with Slavia Prague.

Europa League

Arsenal v Benfica, Friday, 4:55am AEDT

Scores level 1-1.

Intriguing second leg that will be played in Greece rather than North London. The first leg was cagey, but Arsenal – and in particularly Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – missed a number of chances at a second goal. This one should be just as nerve-wracking.

Best Bet

Both Teams To Score Yes

Arsenal v Benfica

Rangers v Antwerp, Friday, 4:55am AEDT

Rangers lead 4-3.

The first leg was a crazy affair, with Rangers hitting a ridiculous four away goals. That’s a nice advantage to have coming home to Ibrox, but Steven Gerrard’s side can’t just throw caution to the wind. Antwerp will push hard, so this should be an exciting second leg.

Best Bet

Both Teams To Score Yes

Rangers v Antwerp

Leicester v Slavia Prague, Friday, 7am AEDT

Scores level 0-0.

Both of these teams played against type in the first leg, with two relatively high-scoring sides finishing goalless. Highly unlikely for that to happen again, and if Slavia grab an early goal, it could really open things up.

Best Bet

Leicester To Qualify

Leicester v Slavia Prague

Manchester United v Real Sociedad, Friday, 7am AEDT

Man Utd lead 4-0.

Tricky one to assess with the Red Devils holding such a big lead from the first leg. With a difficult Premier League schedule coming up (Chelsea, Man City, West Ham) you’d expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to rest some starters in this one. Can’t see this one being too compelling.
