Upcoming Europa League Betting Tips
The Rossoneri hugely underwhelmed last season and were eliminated by Arsenal at the last 16 stage but will hope to do much better this time around with yet further investment following a restructuring of their ownership model. Lazio — who missed out on Champions League football on the final day of Serie A last season — will also be hoping to improve on their surprise quarter-final loss to Red Bull Salzburg last time out.
Keep an eye on both in terms of any Europa League predictions. Atalanta, whose run last season including a group stage thumping of Everton, are also expected to go far despite starting out before the groups.
The Andalusian club have lifted the trophy on five separate occasions with all those successes coming since , including three titles in a row between and Atletico Madrid are the current competition holders, as they won the title for the third time in their history with a final victory over Marseille last season, with Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa starring on their way to the trophy.
The Europa League odds winner market may be particularly busy this summer with a number of massive clubs involved in the competition. Their last appearance in the competition came in , when they exited at the hands of cross-city rivals Sevilla at the quarter-final stage.
There also looks set to be a strong challenge in the Europa League odds from the UK, with London giants Chelsea and Arsenal both involved this season. The North London side are now under the guidance of Unai Emery, who was the man to guide Sevilla to their three successive Europa League titles in recent times.
Chelsea re-enter the Europa League betting frame for the first time since they won the competition in The West London side have a strong record in cup competitions over the years and lifted the FA Cup in May and will look to continue that proud tradition this time around. Highly-fancied in the Europa League odds are German highfliers RB Leipzig but they will also go through the qualification process as they hope to join fellow Bundesliga clubs Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt in the groups.
Other sides worth keeping an eye on are those who regularly aim to reach a minimum of the February knockout stages in European competition. A few sides with less experience on the European stage will hope to make a name for themselves this season, Russian club Krasnodar, Ukranian duo Vorskla Poltava and Zorya Luhansk alongside Czech clubs Jablonec and Sigma Olomouc will all be hopeful of writing a new chapter in their history.
A victory for any of those would, however, overturn the Europa League odds. All sides who have been eliminated from the Champions League now drop into the Europa League for the first time this season, with the likes of Rosenborg, Ludogorets and CFR Cluj — all who have competed in the group stage of the Champions League in recent years.
Once all the qualifiers are determined in August, the 48 clubs will be drawn into 12 groups of four teams each. Fixtures will take place on Thursday evenings between September and December, with the top two teams from each group advancing into the last 32 — where they will be joined by the eight clubs dropping down from the Champions League — while the 24 clubs who occupy third and fourth spots in their groups will drop out of Europe altogether.
The addition of the former Champions League teams could see the Europa League predictions change again. In the last 32, the 12 group winners will take on the 12 runners-up — with the eight Champions League clubs interspersed evenly into proceedings, while at this stage clubs from the same country still cannot compete directly against each other — before an open draw from the last 16 onwards.
