Latest betting odds for the Football Europa League

Who will be Europa League winners in 2022? With the third-placed teams of the Champions League going into the Europa League at the final-round play-offs, the big favorites may not join until later in the tournament. Due to this fact, it is not easy to guess the winner in advance.

For this reason, the Europa League is extremely lucrative in terms of betting strategies, especially around the start of the group stage. This year a bet on one of the Europa League favorites brings about 15 to 20 times the stake.

Serie A side SSC Napoli are among the biggest Europa League favorites for the 2021/22 season. Napoli already proved at the start of the championship season with a 2-1 home win over Juventus Turin that Luciano Spalletti’s team can beat any opponent this year.

The two-time Italian champions would also like to celebrate a major international success after several decades, since their last and so far only European Cup title dates back to the 1988/89 season. The Italians beat VfB Stuttgart in the final, with world star Diego Maradona also scoring a goal.

Diego Maradona won the Serie A twice with SSC Napoli as well as the 1991 UEFA Cup final.

The two Premier League clubs Leicester City and West Ham United are also among the big Europa League odds favorites. Both English football clubs played a strong championship season last year and then made smart decisions on the transfer market. West Ham United won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1964/65 season, while Leicester City fans still have to wait for their first major achievement at an international competition.

If you want to place a Europa League underdog bet, you can consider Real Sociedad, because Spanish clubs traditionally do very well in the Europa League. Spanish clubs could also rely on their home advantage in the final game this year, as it will take place in Seville.

Who qualifies for the Europa League

Qualification for the Europa League is based on UEFA coefficients, with the higher-ranked nations being given more starting places.

With the creation of the Europa Conference League, the UEFA Europa League did receive a quality upgrade and qualification for Europe’s second-highest club competition became more difficult, with only 32 teams now represented in the group stage instead of 48.

Twelve clubs automatically qualify for the group stage on the basis of the UEFA coefficients.  The remaining 20 teams must advance to the group stage via the qualifying matches. Most of these clubs previously failed to qualify for the Champions League.

The match format of the Europa League

The format of the Europa League is subject to numerous changes and football clubs and fans have to adapt to new rules every year. In the 2021/22 Europa League season, only 32 teams will play in the group stage instead of 48, and due to this reduction, the quality level of the participating teams will be higher.

The eight third-placed teams of the Europa League group stage will progress to the Europa Conference League, where they will meet the eight second-placed teams. The winner of this clash advances to the Conference League Round of 16. Similarly, the runners-up of the Europa League group stage will play the third-placed teams from the Champions League group stage in the final-round play-offs for a ticket to the last 16.

From the round of 16 onwards, the respective advancers are determined by a regular knockout system, whereby from the quarter-finals onwards two teams from the same national association can meet.

Which TV channel will broadcast the Europa League 2021/22?

While the Champions League is almost only available on pay-TV, football fans in German-speaking countries can at least look forward to free-TV broadcasts of the Europa League. In Germany, the media group RTL secured the rights to the competition, with the matches also being broadcasted on the streaming platform TVNOW. In Austria, ORF and Servus TV won the contracts, while in Switzerland Teleclub and CH Media will broadcast the matches.

In many other countries, however, the Europa League can now only be seen on pay-TV. In England, BT Sport acquired the Europa League rights in addition to the Champions League, and the same applies in Spain for the subscription channel Movistar+. In Italy, the matches are broadcasted on DAZN and Sky. Like the Champions League, the Europa League matches can be received almost all over the world, for example in the USA (CBS), Japan (Wowow), Australia (Stan) or even Vietnam (FPT).

Where will the 2022 Europa League Final take place?

The 2022 Europa League final will take place at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, the home ground of record Europa League winners Sevilla FC. The venue has a capacity for 43,833 football fans and was the scene of a memorable European Cup final in the 1985/86 season. Romanian champions Steaua Bucharest beat FC Barcelona 2-0 on penalties after a goalless 120 minutes. Steaua goalkeeper Helmuth Duckadam became a great hero when he saved all FC Barcelona’s penalty kicks.

The Spanish national team has played a total of 25 international matches at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán and has not lost a single one. As well as five draws, the Spanish side have won 20 matches.

Sevilla FC have reached the final of the Europa League six times in total and proved to be enormously efficient, winning all six matches. After triumphing in 2006 and 2007, the Spanish side won the Europa League three times in a row between 2014 and 2016. The sixth and to date last Europa League win followed in 2020.

FunFact: Sevilla FC were the first Spanish team ever to have eleven players on the starting line-up in a La Liga game, all of whom were born outside of Spain. The match took place in the 2016/17 season against Eibar and ended in a 1-1 draw.

Who won the Europa League 2021?

Video: The 2021 Europa League final between Manchester United and Villarreal was not for the faint-hearted.

On 26 May 2021, Villarreal FC and Manchester United met at the Gdańsk Stadium in the Europa League final. The score was 1-1 after 90 minutes and no further goals were scored in extra time, so the match was decided by a penalty shoot-out.

It was a thriller as both sides converted their first ten penalties. Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea was unlucky that night as he missed his penalty, while Villarreal goalie Gerónimo Rulli safely converted his penalty kick. Winning the Europa League was the biggest achievement in Villarreal CF’s history.
