Group E is another very interesting one, where two teams, Astra Giurgiu and Austria Vienna, are having a duel for second place – although not against each other. While the Romanians play at home against group winners Roma, the Austrian team plays its last chance in the Czech Republic against Plzen – knowing that even if they win, they must wait for the result of the other game.

Betting Odds At UK Bookmakers
FT Result: Viktoria Plzen 2.75 or 7/4 Draw 3.60 or 13/5 Austria Vienna 2.62 or 13/8
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.66 or 4/6 Under 2.15 or 23/20
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.57 or 4/7 No 2.25 or 5/4
The situation for the Austrian team is the following: Win against Plzen, keep hoping. Any other result than a win would mean they have no chance to finish second in the group. If they manage to win, they also need Astra to lose at home against Roma – if Astra draws, they progress due to better direct results, and if they win, the other game has no more meaning. Roma will probably feature a weakened team with many reserves, but even those players should be more than capable to defeat the Romanians.
Returning to Plzen – Austria Vienna, it’s worth mentioning that the Czech have 3 draws and 2 defeats so far in the EL group, including a 1-1 draw against Roma at home. They’re not in the best form in the world at the moment, but also have nothing to fight for, since they can’t qualify from the group. If they win this game, they will finish 3rd, but that’s hardly an accomplishment to brag with.
Meanwhile, Austria Vienna will give everything they have to win. They have produced great games in the past, and they need another one in order to keep their hopes of qualifying alive. Nothing more, nothing less.
Viktoria Plzen vs Austria Vienna Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we will try to take advantage of the away team’s attacking appetite. Austria Vienna to score is an easy idea, while over 2,5 goals can happen here. X2 is another good idea since we don’t believe Plzen will obtain their first victory in their last game of the group, against an overall better team.

Group I of the Europa League is one of the “boring” ones – we already know who’s progressing and who’s going home.
