Standard Liege vs Akhisarspor
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 4th October 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Maurice Dufrasne (Liege).
Both teams lost their opening Europa League encounters in Group J and will be looking to get on the points chart here. Whoever loses will face an uphill battle to qualify for the knock out stages given the quality of their opponents in this group which include Krasnodar and Sevilla.
Belgians Standard Liege have been installed as the big odds on favourites to win this game and will be expected to get all three points with the added bonus of being at home. They were shell shock in Spain in their opening group game when Sevilla were simply too much for them and they ended up losing 5-1.
Akhisarspor were the outsiders for the group before the Europa League even started and this will be a difficult match for them. They lost their opening game against Krasnodar which only finished 1-0 but technically they always looked like the inferior team. Their goal in this game will not be pretty as they will have to play deep and wait for the chance to counter attack, but in truth they will be happy to leave Belgium with a point.

There are no previous matches between the two teams on record.
Standard Liege vs Akhisarspor: Prediction
Standard Liege should have too much for the opponents and this game being away from home will be very hard for them to settle on the ball and most of the possession will be lost. Liege are odds on to win this and have enough play makers and attackers to make like difficult for the visitors.
Having said this their price is not tempting so to make it more value we will back Liege to be winning at half time and for small stakes we will back the final correct score. Liege should do and need to come out attacking and secure these points.
