Fenerbahce v PAOK Prediction
This Fenerbahce v PAOK prediction is one of the most accurate Europe League betting picks for today. The Greeks won the first leg at home 1-0, but now they are travelling to a hostile Istanbul environment where the Turk fans will make life super difficult for their players. Fenerbache are the classier side with more money, better team, amazing fans and basically deserve to be the in the groups much more. But in order for them to accomplish this task, they will have to win tonight and overturn the 1-0 deficit from the first leg.
Fenerbahce will be patient in their buildup as they wouldn’t want to give the visitors any chances of clinching what could be a heartbreaking away goal. The Turkish giants need a clean win, 1-0 sends the game into Extra Time, but 2-0, 3-0 and 3-1 will guarantee them a place in the groups.

Aston Villa v Rapid Vienna Prediction
Continuing with our most accurate Europa League predictions for 26 August, we give you this Aston Villa v Rapid betting tip. The first leg in Austria ended 1-1 and even though this results favors the English side, they won’t sit back and rely on a goalless draw to proceed. They need a win to make sure they go through and good news is that a win with any result will be enough.
Aston Villa got hammered by Newcastle last Sunday as they lost 6-0! I can’t remember the last time the Villans got trashed so badly and this certainly has to do with all the turmoil going on the club recently. However, according to their current caretaker Kevin MacDonald, the players will use this “inner hurt” as a motivation to progress in Europe. Here is what he said to the official club website: “It’s that inner hurt which should drive them on. I don’t think they need much motivation. I am looking for a positive reaction. Make no mistake about it, the players were as disappointed as I was. They couldn’t quite believe they had conceded the goals they had. “
Villa should be able to bounce back and get the win here. They are the better team with the better players and it will be hard if not impossible for Rapid to match them. Other good news related to this Aston Villa v Rapid prediction is the fact that the English side will be boosted by the return of Gabby Agbonlahor (hamstring, back), James Collins (calf) and Carlos Cuellar (hamstring).

T.N.S. v CSKA Sofia
Our last pick in our list of most accurate Europa League predictions for today involves the Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia. CSKA won the first leg 3-0 so their qualification is practically guaranteed. However, despite the convincing result, the three goals actually game in the last 6-7 minutes of the game so it wasn’t an easy job for them.
Furthermore, CSKA will be travelling without their starting goalkeeper and central defenders so they will be looking even more vulnerable at the back than usual. Plus, Bulgarian sides have the habit of losing such matches when their progression is safe. They will be resting some of their main players and another big factor is that they are having a lot of problems from within the club, head coach was fired recently while his replacement wasn’t able to travel with the team for this fixture.
