Wigan face their toughest test in the Europa League campaign so far as they host Rubin Kazan at the DW Stadium.
Owen Coyle’s side remain undefeated having drawn and won in their opening two European games while the visitors have a 100% record.
The Latics are two points behind the Russian side, with a win at home meaning they top Group D at the end of Thursday night.
The Europa League has provided a good outlet for Wigan as they continue to falter in the Championship. Last season’s FA Cup winners sit 13th in England’s second-tier having won three of the last six games, losing the other three.
Rubin’s form in the last six games has only been marginally better with two wins, a draw and three defeat to their name. The game in at the DW is the first meeting between the two sides.
Wigan are 3.30 to win at home to Rubin on Thursday evening and 3.50 to secure a draw, while the Latics can be backed at 5.00 to top Group D.
Rubin, managed by Kurban Berdyev, are without striker Jose Rondon who has a broken metatarsal. The Russian side are 2.30 to win in Wigan.
