Nice vs Hapoel Beer-Sheva Free Betting Tips
The meetings follow one another at high speed for all the teams entered in the European Cup this season. Due to the protracted health crisis, the launch of the Europa League version 2020-2021 has been postponed to mid-October, forcing UEFA to concentrate the 6 group matches in the space of a month and a half. This is how OGC Nice and Hapoel Beer Sheva, opponents in Pool C, will play their third match in 7 days this Thursday on the Allianz Riviera side.
During the 1st day, the Nice were humiliated on the lawn of Bayer Leverkusen, leaving the BayArena with 6 goals in the suitcases (2-6). A far from ideal start to the competition, in a pool that also includes Slavia Prague, present in the Champions League last season. A hen is higher than it appears for the Aiglons therefore, who will have to take this competition very seriously and raise their level of play, if they want to qualify, as in 2017-2018. Compulsory victory therefore against the Israeli club, which also brilliantly disposed of the Czechs of Slavia last Thursday at home (3-1). Distrust of the people of Nice!
Key stats for the match Nice vs Hapoel Beer-Sheva
In the 9th game since the start of the season, Nice has only achieved 2 clean sheets: in Strasbourg (2-0) and Bordeaux (0-0).
The last time Nice did not concede a goal at home was in January 2020, in the Coupe de France against Fréjus Saint-Raphael. The Niçois remain in 11 straight matches at the Allianz Riviera without a clean sheet!
During the first day, the Niçois conceded 6 goals on the lawn of Bayer Leverkusen. If the German club is of a higher level, this raises some questions before this second C3 match.
Nice is struggling in the game but has made a good start to the season in terms of accounting, having even held off LOSC this weekend. The Niçois will remain favourites.
On Matchday 1, Hapoel Beer Sheva defeated Slavia Prague (3-1), while the Czech club held high against Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and FC Barcelona last season in the phase of hens from C1.

The X2 double chance was more than tempting in view of the odds (2.35), given the approximate game deployed by the OGCN at the start of the season and the results of French clubs in the Europa League. But the Aiglons remain favourites at home, and a burst of pride cannot be ruled out against an opponent, admittedly often present in C3, but within his reach. Both teams score in this more disputed meeting than it seems!
Betting Tips: Both teams to score

Benfica vs Standard Liege Free Betting Tips
The group D poster of the Europa League will oppose, this Thursday, October 29, Benfica Lisbon and Standard de Liège. Meet live from the Luz Stadium in Lisbon to follow this match.
Benfica in steamroller mode
This year, the locomotive of the Portuguese championship will certainly be Benfica Lisbon. After four days of competition in Liga Sagres, four clubs stand behind 7 points: FC Porto, Sporting Portugal, Santa Clara and Vitoria Guimaraes. In front, far ahead, only Benfica Lisbon sits with 12 points. For the moment, it is a full box for the club of the capital. The only black point at the start of the season was to miss the qualification for the Champions League by losing in the third qualifying round against the Greeks of PAOK Salonika (2-1). Reversed in the Europa League, the Eagles of SLB will therefore have the opportunity to shine in a cursed competition, which they have never won but of which they were the unfortunate finalists on three occasions (1983, 2013, 2014). This year could well be that of the Portuguese, greatly strengthened during the last transfer window. They did not miss their introduction in this group D, by winning quite easily on the lawn of KKS Lech Poznan (2-4), thanks in particular to a hat trick from their young Uruguayan striker Darwin Gabriel Núñez.
The less sovereign Standard in the fall
After a strong start to the season, Standard has so far failed to shift into high gear once the fall and, with it, the decisive first games of the season come. There is still nothing to talk about a crisis of results, but the Rouches would be very inspired to find the net as quickly as possible. In its last five games, Standard have only won two, even if they were important games: a European play-off against the Hungarians of Fehérvár (3-1), and a shock against the rival and former leader. from Jupiler Pro League, Charleroi (1-2). However, apart from these two flashes of glory, it is messier. Liège was hooked by Zulte Waregem (2-2), but also by FC Bruges when he had two penalties in his favour, and the clearest chances (1-1). In Sclessin against Glasgow Rangers Steven Gerrard, Standard also missed his return to Europe by losing (0-2).

Victory for Benfica. Standard must imperatively win in Lisbon to preserve its chances of qualification. But the Portuguese are currently in great shape and should take advantage of Liège’s shortcomings without too much problem.
