Now that Champions League has concluded for the week, all eyes in the football world will turn towards the Europa League tournament.

Borussia Dortmund, which is one of the highest profile teams left in the tournament, will be squaring off against Gabala on Thursday evening. Gabala, which is playing host to Borussia Dortmund, will be the heavy underdog to win when the action kicks off on Thursday.

Group C has been surprisingly close so far, as just three points separate the first place team (Borussia Dortmund) from the last place team (Gabala). Borussia Dortmund currently has a record of 1-1-0, while Gabala has a record of 0-1-1. Borussia Dortmund is the class of the division and should go through easily, though they have had some bumps so far.

Here are the current betting odds for Thursday's match:

Gabala, 13.00
Draw, 6.00
Borussia Dortmund, 1.22

Based on these odds, a successful $100 wager on Gabala would produce a total profit of $1,200, while a successful $100 wager on Borussia Dortmund would return a profit of just $22. As you can clearly see, Borussia Dortmund is expected to easily win this match.

Borussia Dortmund, as if this moment, is the current favourite to win the Europa League trophy - here are the current odds for the top teams that are still remaining:

Napoli, 13.00
Liverpool, 15.00
Athletic Bilbao, 17.00

Borussia Dortmund is seen as having the most talented team, though, as we saw last year, anything can happen in Europa League. After all, who would have expected Dnipro to make it all the way to the finals?
