Two-time Danish Cup winners Randers have only been in existence since 2003 but they have quickly established themselves among the Danish Superliga elite.

Thomas Thomasberg’s side come into this play-off qualifying first-leg clash topping their domestic table following a 2-1 win at Viborg. They are a point ahead of Midtjylland after five games of the season.

Randers are 23/10 to beat Turkish giants Galatasaray at Cepheus Park.

Galatasaray were thumped 5-1 by PSV in their Champions League qualifier – and 7-2 on aggregate – so dropped into the Europa League qualification process.

While held by St Johnstone in their first-leg clash at home, they overcame the Scottish side 4-2 at McDiarmid Park last week to set up this play-off.

Galatasaray opened their domestic campaign with a 2-0 away win at Giresunspor on Monday with goals from Mbaye Diagne, who impressed while on loan at West Brom last season, and Alexandru Cicaldau.

However, they will be without Marcos do Nascimento Teixeira, who was dismissed after 63 minutes and is suspended.

The Europa League betting tips odds see Galatasaray as 6/5 to win while the draw is 23/10.

The hosts are available at 4/6 to either win or draw the first leg on the Double Chance market and it is Evens that one or other team fails to score.

Verdict

Galatasaray are tipped to win the opening leg in Randers.
