Europa League Winner Predictions, Odds, Where to Bet 2022/23

  • The Europa League is the second biggest tournament in European soccer
  • Thirty-two teams will enter the group stage of the competition in September
  • Manchester United, Arsenal, Roma and Real Betis are among the favorites

The Europa League is the second-biggest club competition in European soccer. Launched in 1971 as the UEFA Cup, it has been held on an annual basis ever since and was rebranded as the Europa League in 2009.

The tournament begins with a group stage featuring 32 teams, who book their places either through the qualifying rounds or by securing an automatic spot via their performance in their domestic league or cup competitions.

The winner of each group goes straight through to the round of 16, while the runners-up and eight Champions League dropouts take part in the knockout round play-offs. The winners of those play-offs advance to the round of 16, which is followed by two-legged quarter-finals and semi-finals.

This season’s final will take place on 31 May 2023 – a few weeks later than usual due to the pause for the 2022 World Cup in November and December.

Who Will Win the Europa League 2022/23?

Manchester United are the favorites to win the Europa League in 2022/23. The Red Devils lifted this trophy under Jose Mourinho in 2017 and reached the final four years later. Erik ten Hag will be keen to win a trophy in his debut campaign at Old Trafford.

United will face competition from Premier League rivals Arsenal, who narrowly missed out on a top-four finish last time out. Mourinho’s Roma, the winners of the inaugural edition of the Europa Conference League, will also hope to challenge for the trophy.

Spanish duo Real Betis and Real Sociedad are outsiders at this stage, while Union Berlin and Freiburg will be flying the flag for Germany and the Bundesliga following Eintracht Frankfurt’s triumph last term.
