It’s a much-maligned competition in the world of football, but there’s no doubt that the Europa League offers plenty of opportunities for the teams that take it seriously. For some, it may be the only genuine chance they have of qualifying for the following season’s Champions League, and at the very least there’s also the chance of winning a trophy and securing a spot in the Super Cup. Just look at last season’s Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal. For Chelsea, it was a chance to win some much-needed silverware: it’s no surprise that former boss Maurizio Sarri, sensing the pressure on his job building, wanted to win the tournament. As for Arsenal, it was the only realistic chance they had of qualifying for the 2019/20 Champions League. In the end, they finished agonisingly one step short after losing to the Blues in the final.
And so there will be no shortage of interest in the Europa League for 2020, in which there will be a whole heap of big names competing. Arsenal and Manchester United headline alongside Roma and Sevilla, while the likes of Lazio, Wolfsburg, Sporting Lisbon and CSKA Moscow will be hoping to make their mark.
So who will feature in our Europa League final predictions? It’s always tough to predict what is a tournament not short of a surprise or two, but in previous years we have seen a theme developing that gives us some clues as to who will feature prominently in the Europa League 2020 odds to win.
1. Europa League Final Betting
A good idea is to look look at the profiles of last season’s four semi-finalists: Chelsea, Arsenal, Eintracht Frankfurt and Valencia. All had excellent domestic seasons, either flirting with the Champions League places in their respective divisions or indeed finishing in them, but here’s the key thing: none had any chance of winning the league title. And perhaps that is the most important thing here. Teams that have bigger priorities don’t tend to fare too well in the Europa League: it has to be the main focus of any side with ambitions of winning the thing. That gives us a much clearer picture of our Europa League 2020 final pick. We’re looking for good teams – those who will finish inside the top six of the best domestic divisions – who have strong squads where they can rotate and still field a high quality starting eleven. So who springs to mind for our Europa League final 2020 betting tips? Certainly Arsenal will be hoping to go one better, and we have no fear that their manager Unai Emery will take the competition seriously.
What happened in 2019?
And Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer will be desperate for a trophy in his first full season as Manchester United manager. The Norwegian is overseeing a change of style and personnel at Old Trafford, but he will still have the squad depth to compete for what may be his side’s best chance of qualifying for the 2020/21 Champions League.
Both Sevilla and Roma were poor last season, so they can be discounted, while Frankfurt have lost their talisman Luka Jovic, who has joined Real Madrid.
Another dark horse for the title might be Borussia Monchengladbach, the German side who were a last day defeat to Borussia Dortmund away from finishing inside the Champions League places in the Bundesliga. They have plenty of European experience, and they fit the profile of the kind of team that can excel in the Europa League.
