About the Europa League
Unfairly looked down on by fans more interested in the Champions League, the Europa League has featured some of the biggest names in European football and is regularly home to the most exciting and passionate continental matches.
The second most important competition in European club football, the Europa League took over from the old UEFA Cup in 2009.
Europa League Teams
The UEFA Cup was rebranded in 2009 to become the Europa League and since that time there have been a number of football clubs that have made their impact on the tournament.
Spanish sides in particular have been successful in both UEFA Cup and Europa League eras – but clubs from Italy, England and Germany have held the trophy aloft through the years.
Sevilla are the most successful club in the tournament’s history, winning the trophy on five occasions – all since the turn of the century. Their La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid have also enjoyed the competition in recent years and Spain’s club sides always attract a lot of interest when it comes to Europa League betting.
With the bigger sides usually qualifying for the Champions League there are always a few new names that crop up in the Europa League predictions and Europa League betting markets. But as sides finishing third in their Champions League group then enter this competition the latter rounds in particular can feature some of the most successful clubs in Europe.
Europa League Players
With the very best players competing in the Champions League, Europa League betting markets can throw up some surprising Europa League odds. But with teams such as Atletico Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea winning the trophy in recent years it means fans have got used to watching players such as Antoinne Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Fernando Torres featuring in Europa League predictions and reports.
Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Milan’s Gonzalo Higuain are all performing in the tournament this season so fans are used to watching big name players, and they’re all candidates to be the Europa League top scorer. Their presence is a major reason betting on the Europa League is very popular.
Atletico Madrid are the current holders but are currently competing in the Champions League so unless they finish third in their group they will not feature in the Europa League betting markets this season. Diego Simeone’s side have actually won the competition three times in the last ten years so have regularly attracted short Europa League odds for the title.
But Sevilla are the real masters of the Europa League. They won the competition three times in a row from 2014 and are back this season so will interest many fans of Europa League betting once again.
English sides have also been successful in recent years with Manchester United winning the cup and Liverpool losing in the final.
Europa League Predictions
When it comes to Europa League betting it is crucial to consult tried and trusted Europa League predictions sites, as the competition is so open. With Champions League sides entering in the round of 32, Europa League odds can change very quickly so it is very important to keep up to date with all the latest developments.
English sides Arsenal and Chelsea were favourites before the competition began and they have both shown good form to back up their relatively short Europa League winner odds. Milan, Bayer Leverkusen and Sevilla were also backed for the title and they have all looked like they will do enough to qualify for the next stage.
As with any season though, the Europa League has thrown up a few surprises and clubs like FC Zurich, Red Bull Salzburg and Eintracht Frankfurt will have found their Europa League odds shortening over the last couple of months.
It is difficult to predict a winner for the 2018/19 season as the identities of the Champions League entrants are still unknown – but Chelsea and Arsenal are still looking the most likely to lift the trophy in May.
With so many clubs taking part in the competition the market for Europa League top goalscorer can be an open affair also. Factors such as games against weaker sides and continued progression in the tournament are key and make trusted Europa League predictions even more important.
Europa League Facts
The Europa League is the second-tier competition for UEFA club sides and has been running since 2009 when it took over from the UEFA Cup that started in 1971. Qualification for the competition is by performance in domestic championships depending on the strength of the nation’s league.
There are five stages of qualification rounds before the main group stage begins in September. There are 12 groups of four teams who play each other home and away. The top two sides qualify for the knock out stages where they are joined by eight clubs who have finished third in their Champions League groups.
The fact that some entrants are unknown until this stage makes Europa League odds some of the most attractive in top level football and can provide some very interesting Europa League betting markets.
Europa League betting is getting more popular in places such as Canada as there is value to be found in the markets thanks to the fact that there are more sides that have a chance to win the trophy. Keep an eye on the markets at Amazing.Bet to find your perfect picks.
