The 2020/21 Europa League is the 50th season of the European club football tournament and there are some massive clubs participating in the competition to consider in our Europa League Final betting odds. The qualifying for the Europa League started back on the 18th of August, with the group stages beginning on the 22nd of October.
The format of the Europa League is exactly the same as last season, with the top two teams from each group progressing to the knockout stages. The first of the knockout stages is the Round of 32 and in addition to the teams qualifying from the Europa League groups, there will be 8 clubs entering the competition from the Champions League.
The Europa League final will be played at the amber-shaped Gdańsk Stadium in Gdansk, Poland. Last season’s final was going to be played at this venue but the latter the stages of the tournament were played in Germany due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The winners of the 2020/21 Europa League will participate in the 2021 Super Cup against the winners of the Champions League.
With so much to play for let's take a look at our Europa League Final 2021 predictions and the latest Europa League Final odds.
1. Europa League Final 2021 Favourites
You only have to go back to the 2018/19 final to find the last time two English Premier League clubs reached the Europa League final. That season we saw a final between Chelsea and Arsenal, with the Blues coming out on top. We could yet be writing a preview of Europa League Final involving the same two clubs but that would mean Chelsea finishing 3rd in their Champions League group.
Arsenal on the other hand have entered the Europa League at the group stages. They have been handed a favourable draw with Rapid Vienna, Molde, and Dundalk, meaning they should have little difficulty in reaching the knockout stages of the tournament. With the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Bernd Leno, Thomas Partey and Willian, they certainly have the talent and experience to feature in many Europa League Final 2021 betting tips. However, football is unpredictable, so you never know. Willian has joined Arsenal after spending seven years at Chelsea.
Bet365 offer 7/1 for Arsenal to win the Europa League and to do that, they will need to reach the final.
The second English Premier League club to feature prominently in Europa League Final predictions is Tottenham Hotspur. Now under the guidance of José Mourinho, they have also been handed a favourable draw with Ludogorets Razgrad, LASK, and Antwerp in their group. It would be considered a huge shock if Tottenham Hotspur failed to progress from this group as winners and thus secure a potentially easier draw in the Round of 32.
Tottenham Hotspur have a group of players who know what it takes to reach the final of a European competition having done so in the 2018/19 Champions League. They lost that match to Liverpool but must come into this competition as one of the Europa League Final favourites. The attacking trio of Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, and Gareth Bale is extremely exciting and opposition defences will not be looking forward to facing them this season.
The Europa League Final odds with Bet365 have Spurs at 8/1 to win the tournament.
2. Europa League Final 2021 Predictions
In terms of recent European finalists, there are not many others to pick from in the Europa League this season. When discussing who will win the Europa League Final, It is difficult to make a case for AC Milan. This is despite the fact they are available at 12/1 with Bet365 to lift the trophy, making them the third favourites at the time of writing.
The Rossoneri struggled to get through the final qualifying round and they have been handed a difficult draw with Celtic, Sparta Prague, and Lille. You must go back to 2007 to find the last time AC Milan featured in the final of a European club competition. Although they are ranked as one of the Europa League Final favourites with the bookmakers, it would not be a surprise if they exited at the group stage or the early knockout stages of the tournament. We must not forget that one of the Milan's strikers is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who should be no stranger to football fans around the world.
Other clubs that could feature in the Europa League Final 2021 betting preview include Napoli, Bayer Leverkusen, Villarreal, Roma, and Leicester City. We should also keep in mind the potential teams entering the Europa League from the Champions League and that could include the record winners of the competition, Sevilla, plus Red Bull Salzburg, Marseille, Zenit Saint Petersburg, and Dynamo Kyiv.
