f all groups, who would have thought that group A would be thrilling before Day 6? Pretty much everyone believes that Man United will cruise through the group, while Feyenoord and Fenerbahce would be left to battle for second place. The battle is still happening, except that the two contestants can actually qualify together, in a group where everything is still possible.

Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20
First off, we want to bring up the calculation board. Man United have two choices here – lose against Zorya and wait for other results, or avoid defeat and be certain of qualifying. If United lose, Feyenoord needs any kind of win against the Turkish team to qualify. If United draw or win, Feyenoord needs to have better direct results against Fenerbahce, since their goal difference is worse – so a 2:0 win is the minimum scoreline which can bring them further.
Thankfully for them, they’ve shown quite a goalscoring appetite recently, winning 6-1 in the weekend and scoring at least 2 goals at home in their previous 5 games. They also have the bad habit of conceding, so a victory by 2 goals against Fenerbahce might be a little hard to obtain. We’re not writing them off completely just yet, but saying they need to produce something very special to qualify here.
Meanwhile, the Turkish team is in good form, especially away from home, and has also won their last encounter against the Dutch with a 1-0 scoreline. A draw or narrow loss is everything they need, but they won’t come in Holland to defend – a goal means that Feyenoord will be up against a mountain.
Feyenoord vs Fenerbahce Betting Tips
That being said, we think that we’re going to see a rather spectacular game, with at least 2 goals. Both teams to score is another great idea, while Fenerbahce +1,5 is a very smart bet – since we do believe that the Turkish team will qualify here. We’d steer clear of any outright bets, since anything can happen if Feyenoord starts attacking in waves.
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 1.74 or 20/27
Draw @ 3.50 or 5/2
