OddsPSV 9/5, Draw 11/4, Arsenal 13/10

Mikel Arteta has his Arsenal side flying both domestically and in Europe this season, with the Gunners having won four out of four in the Europa League to top Group A.

A draw or better against PSV Eindhioven on Thursday would secure top spot for the Londoners and book them a place in the last-16 of the competition, with Arsenal having seen an eight-match winning streak ended by a 1-1 draw at Southampton last time out.

A Granit Xhaka strike gave the hosts a 1-0 win when these two sides met at the Emirates Stadium last week, with the Swiss midfielder having also found the net against the Saints at the weekend.

The Gunners have won three of their Europa League outings by a one-goal margin and are 10/3 to edge home by a single goal again in Eindhoven.

OddsMan Utd 1/11, Draw 17/2, Sheriff Tiraspol 28/1

Manchester United will be expected to get the victory they need when they play host to Sheriff Tiraspol at Old Trafford on Thursday evening.

The Red Devils know they have to get the job done to maintain realistic hopes of topping Group E, with Real Sociedad currently on course to earn a last-16 spot and avoid a play-off against a team dropping down from the Champions League.

Sociedad lead the way by three points with two games to play, with Los Txuri-Urdin playing host to United in the final round of matches.

Erik ten Hag's side won 2-0 in Moldova in their first meeting with Sheriff, with first-half strikes from Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo settling the issue.

And Ronaldo is back in the fold after a recent disagreement with Ten Hag's team 4/9 to win to nil against the Moldovans.

T20 World Cup: First win crucial for Pakistan

OddsPakistan 1/10, Zimbabwe 6/1

Two sides still searching for a first win at the T20 World Cup meet at the Optus Stadium in Perth when Pakistan take on Zimbabwe.

Pakistan lost out in a thriller to India in their opening match of the tournament, while Zimbabwe saw their Super 12s clash with South Africa eventually abandoned due to rain.

Against India there was something of a rarity as both Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were dismissed cheaply - with their opening partnership absolutely crucial to the chances of the Green Shirts going all the way in Australia.

Pakistan have a rock-solid record of 16 wins from 17 previous T20I clashes with Zimbabwe,, but will be aware that the lone loss came as recently as April last year.
