Clarets to secure Euro progress


Burnley were made to work hard for their goalless draw in Turkey last time out and will be looking to get the job done in their Europa League second leg encounter with Istanbul Basaksehir on Thursday.

Burnley to win @ 11/10

Sean Dyche’s men appear to be getting to grips with the rigours of these Europa League qualifiers and, having battled past Aberdeen in the last round, will fancy their chances of finishing the job on home soil.

England goalkeeper Joe Hart looks set to continue in goal after two clean sheets in his first two games for the Clarets, in what has been an impressive start to this next chapter of his career.

Burnley were disappointing going forward in the first leg without a single shot on target and have the potential to be much sharper in front of goal on Thursday.

Basaksehir won their domestic opener against Trabzonspor and will be raring to go on their trip to Lancashire.

However, with home advantage on their side at Turf Moor, Dyche will be hoping the likes of Chris Wood and Sam Vokes have their shooting boots on and see Burnley through to the next round.

Rangers to draw @ 9/4

Steven Gerrard has been making a positive start to life at Rangers, who themselves will be looking to progress in Europe as they prepare to travel to NK Maribor.

The Slovenians were impressive 5-0 winners over Gorica at the weekend but Gerrard’s men are a step up in class and themselves had little issues in a 2-0 win over St Mirren, despite receiving a red card for the second straight domestic game.

The Gers have one foot in the next round after an impressive 3-1 win over Maribor in Glasgow and the Old Firm outfit could look to shut up shop in Slovenia.

Rangers used the same tactic to secure a goalless draw against Shkupi earlier in the competition and it would not be a surprise to see the Scottish Premiership side do the same on Thursday.
