FC Zurich is certainly a team with a story. They’ve caught everyone’s attention by playing in the Europa League for Switzerland this season, although they aren’t playing in the country’s top division.
Regardless, they haven’t made fools of themselves and earned a good 1-1 draw against Steaua in Bucharest – will they push for the win on their home ground?

Betting Odds At The Best European Betting Sites
Zurich 2.00 or 1/1 Draw 3.60 or 13/5 Steaua 4.00 or 3/1
We most certainly think they will, and they should. The level of football they play is certainly better than the Swiss Second Division.
They fully deserved the point they won in Bucharest, dominating the Romanian squad for vast portions of the game. A win at home in their next game could open the door towards European spring wide open – they’d only need another win to be in contention for second place.
They haven’t lost at home in quite some time, but we’re not sure how useful this statistic is, since most of their opponents and lower division clubs.
Meanwhile, Steaua is far from the form they’ve shown last seasons. Although their team looks great on paper, consisting in many internationals or ex-internationals, the team just can’t seem to produce quality football. They might get away with it in their domestic league, but Europe is a totally different story.
They’ve lost 0-2 at Osmanlispor in their previous Europa League away game but now come to Zurich knowing that anything but a win will destroy their chances of qualifying from the group.
Zurich vs Steaua Betting Tips
Certainly, both teams have great motivation to go on and win this. We think that given their superior international experience and sometimes even individual value, Steaua shouldn’t make fools of themselves.
Steaua +1 is a great bet, which gives great odds, and can be solved by an early Romanian goal – they are known to concede very few. Zurich under 1,5 goals is the other idea, while over 3,5 yellow cards is an almost certainty.
Asian Handicap Full Time – Steaua (+0.5, +1) @ 1.61 or 20/33 with 138
Double Chance – x or Steaua @ 1.80 or 4/5 with 138
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 1.95 or 20/21 with 138
Europa League Predictions And Betting Tips
Europe’s no.2 club cup might have smaller prizes that the Champions League, but it certainly doesn’t lack interesting games.

These are surely the favourites to win the competition, but can we completely discredit teams like Arsenal, Marseille and Lazio? Europa League 2018 – Winner Betting Odds We surely cannot. And now, we are very close to the end of this year’s Europa League, with only 8 teams left…
