Rubin Kazan are a prime example of that as they defeated current holders Atletico Madrid in the previous round. The Russian outfit now travel to Levante and the La Liga side are also full of confidence after thrashing Olympiakos 4-0 on aggregate in the round of 32.
Both of these teams love to play attacking football and we could see plenty of goals in this first leg. Kazan were 2-0 winners at Atletico last month, so they clearly enjoy a trip to Spain and more of the same would suit them perfectly on Thursday. An away win is at 23/10.
Stuttgart entertain Lazio as well and after the Italians knocked-out Borussia Monchengladbach in the previous round, they should be in good spirits ahead of another journey to Germany.
The Serie A outfit have been impressive in the league and in Europe this season and they are genuine contenders to win this trophy, especially if they can win this week.
Stuttgart will be a tough team to break down though and they have shown they are strong away from home with a 2-0 win over Genk, so might pride themselves on being defensively solid at home this time out.
Plzen were the team of the round last time out as they thrashed Napoli 5-0 on aggregate and when you consider the Italian side are challenging Juventus for the title in Serie A, it shows you just how impressive that was.
The Czech outfit host Fenerbahce this week in what is likely to be a tight encounter between two very good sides, but the home team are the 6/5 favourites.
Fenerbahce have kept five clean sheets in their last six Europa League matches, so Plzen have to be at their attacking best to break the Turkish team down.
Benfica v Bordeaux is another interesting battle between two sides that really impressed in the previous round.
Benfica are currently a 10/1 shot to win the Europa League, so it is no surprise they are the 4/7 favourites in this one, but they will be aware of how tough Bordeaux are to beat.
The Ligue 1 team have only one defeat to their name in this tournament so far.
Finally, Zenit St Petersburg, who knocked-out Liverpool last month are in action as they head to Basel.
Zenit went through via the away goals against the Reds, despite losing 3-1 in the second leg and they have to sharpen up at the back here. The Russians can be backed at 8/5 to win in Basel on Thursday, which could prove to be decent odds, especially if the likes of Alex Witsel and Hulk perform at their best.
With so many top teams in action, it should be a cracking night of Europa League football.
