Europa Conference League Winner Prediction: who will lift the trophy?

Europa Conference League predictions

While Aston Villa are the ones to beat going forward, we have our doubts as to whether they will actually be able to lift the Conference League trophy. They're currently involved in a tight race for a top four spot in the incredibly demanding Premier League. As things heat up towards the end of the season, their priorities might well shift to their domestic responsibilities if they have a chance at securing Champions League football.  Fiorentina are back into the last four one year on from their runner-up finish in the 2022/23 edition. They'll fancy their chances of a return to the final where they will be hoping to lift their first ever piece of European silverware in 63 years. Sitting 10th in the Serie A, Fiorentina's focus for the rest of the year will be the Coppa Italia, of which they are in the semi-finals, and the Conference League. Should they reach the final in Athens, we believe there is a decent chance the Florence-based club can be crowned champions. They will have certainly learned a lot from last year's run, both in how to handle the moment as well as how to deal with a tough English opponent (with Aston Villa being big favorites over Olympiakos). Therefore, we believe Fiorentina are the value pick of the four remaining teams to be crowned Conference League champions!

Group A - Lille - Slovan Bratislava - Olimphia Ljubjana - Klaksvik

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-2

As one of the bigger names in this year's Conference League, LOSC Lille will have ambitions of lifting their first piece of European silverware this season. Les Dogues, who made a round of 16 finish in the 2021/22 campaign of the UEFA Champions League, were expected to cruise to a relatively comfortable first-place finish in what was a favorable group draw. The 2020/21 Ligue 1 champions did not disappoint, rackiing up four wins and two draws en route to the top spot with a points total of 14. Behind Lille were Slovakian club Slovan Bratislava whose 3-1-2 record was enough to secure them a spot in the first knockout round. We went a perfect 2/2 in our predictions for Group A, correctly backing Lille and Bratislava in a 1-2 finish! 

Group A final standings:

  1. LOSC Lille - 14 points
  2. Slovan Bratislava - 10 points
  3. Olimpija Ljubjana - 6 points
  4. Klaksvik - 4 points

Group B - Gent - Maccabi Tel Aviv - Zorya Luhansk - Breidablik

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-4

There were two clear favorites in Group B of the Conference League as Belgian side KAA Gent and Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv were a clear step above the other two sides. Both teams did what was required of them, with Tel Aviv upsetting the odds somewhat to pip Gent to the top spot with an almost flawless 5-0-1 record. Gent locked up second with 13 points thanks to a 4-1-1 record, seven points ahead of Zorya in third-place. As a reminder for our predictions, we had the correct two sides advancing, although in the opposite order as we had Gent beating out Maccabi Tel Aviv!

Group B final standings:

  1. Maccabi Tel Aviv - 15 points
  2. KAA Gent - 13 points
  3. Zorya - 6 points
  4. Breidablik - 0 points

Group C - Dinamo Zagreb - Viktoria Plzen - FK Astana - FC Ballkani

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-13

Another group which presented a clear gulf in quality between the top two teams and the bottom two teams was Group C. Croatian giants and regular Champions League participants Dinamo Zagreb were the favorites to top the standings while Viktoria Plzen picked up some valuable experience by playing in the UCL group stages last season (against Bayern, Barcelona and Inter, no less). The Czech club clearly benefited by playing against some of the world's top sides as they were able to record the only perfect 100% winning record in the 2023/24 Conference League group stage. Dinamo Zagreb were able to secure second-place, albeit with a worrying 3-0-3 record. Similarly to Group B, we had the correct two teams progressing, albeit in the reverse order!

Group C final standings:

  1. Viktoria Plzen - 18 points
  2. Dinamo Zagreb - 9 points
  3. FC Astana - 4 points
  4. Ballkani - 4 points

Group D - Club Brugge - Bodo/Glimt - Besiktas - Lugano

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-6

One of the stronger groups in the competition was Group D with three teams all realistically gunning for the top spot. Ultimately it was Belgian giants Club Brugge that would claim first-place with an unbeaten 5-1-0 record for a 16 points total. Bodo/Glimt continues to impress with the Norwegian champions securing second-place, some way off the group winners on 10 points. It was a hugely disappointing tournament for Turkish club Besiktas who crashed out in third with just four points earned. We went 1/2 in our predictions, correctly tipping Brugge to finish first while we also had Lugano finishing as the bottom-placed team.

Group D final standings:

  1. Club Brugge - 16 points
  2. Bodo/Glimt - 10 points
  3. Besiktas - 4 points
  4. Lugano - 4 points

Group E - AZ Alkmaar - Aston Villa - Legia Warsaw - HSK Zrinjski Mostar

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-3

The tournament favorites Aston Villa were in action in Group E, marking their long-awaited return to European competition after more than a 10 year absence. The Villains were able to take care of business, claiming first-place on the final matchday with a 1-1 draw against Zrinjski. The surprise of the group was the failure of last season's semi-finalists AZ Alkmaar to progress. Legia Warsaw finished second with their 4-0-2 record good for 12 points while the Dutch side's six-point haul and subsequent third-place finish going down as a massive disappointment. 1/2 here as we had Villa going through as group winners.

Group E final standings:

  1. Aston Villa - 13 points
  2. Legia Warsaw - 12 points
  3. AZ Alkmaar - 6 points
  4. Zrinjski - 4 points

Group F - Ferencvaros - Fiorentina - Genk - FK Cukaricki

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-9

After the heartbreak of losing the 2022/23 Conference League final to West Ham, Fiorentina are back and are expected to make another deep run. The oddsmakers have La Viola listed as the second favorites behind Aston Villa and were able to show their pedigree in the group stage, locking up first-place with three wins and three draws. Second-place went to Hungarian outfit Ferencvaros, who were able to secure a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Fiorentina on the final matchday to edge out Genk. The Belgian side will be disappointed as they were expected to progress but missed out by just a single point. We had the Italians going through as group winners but missed out on Genk in second.

Group F final standings:

  1. Fiorentina - 12 points
  2. Ferencvaros - 10 points
  3. KRC Genk - 9 points
  4. Cukaricki - 0 ponts

Fiorentina lost to West Ham United in last season's final and will again be a threat in the 2023-24 Conference League. They are our confident tip to win Group F ahead of Belgian side Genk. Ferencvaros may finish well in third place ahead of inexperienced Cukaricki.

Group G - Eintracht Frankfurt - PAOK Salonika - HJK Helsinki- Aberdeen

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-14

One of the surprises of the group stage occured in Group G as Greek club PAOK romped to a highly-impressive unbeaten run of five wins and one draw in their six matches. They would top the group with 16 points while 2021/22 Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt limpted to second-place with three wins and three defeats. Scottish side Aberdeen's 1-3-2 record saw them finish in third-place with a points total of six. We correctly predicted the two progressing sides, although had the reverse order.

Group G final standings:

  1. PAOK - 16 points
  2. Frankfurt - 9 points
  3. Aberdeen - 6 points
  4. HJK - 2 points

Group H - Fenerbahce - Ludogorets Razgrad - Spartak Trnava - Nordsjaelland

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-7

Group H provided a competitive battle with three teams fighting until the final matchday. Ultimately it was Fenerbahce and Ludogorets who secured a first and second-place finish, respectively, with victories on the final matchday. The Turkish giants would just edge out the Bulgarians thanks to their superior goal differential. Danish side Nordsjaelland had a bitter pill to swallow as they entered matchday six in first-place but ultimately would crash out in third after a 1-0 loss to Ludogorets. We went a perfect 2/2 in our predictions for this group as we had Fenerbahce finishing first followed by Ludogorets in second!

Group H final standings:

  1. Fenerbahce - 12 points (+2 goal differential)
  2. Ludogorets - 12 points (0 goal differential)
  3. Nordsjaelland - 10 points
  4. Spartak Trnava - 1 point

How to make good match bets and a reliable Europa Conference League prediction?

“Europa Conference League betting tips”

As with a Champions League prediction , for example, making a successful Europa Conference League prediction requires a number of factors to be taken into consideration.  

Since the first edition of the competition in 2021-2022, our betting experts have been paying attention to the smallest details to offer you the best possible bets. Here's what you need to do and the best advice for making the right bets:  

  • Pay attention to the latest results
  • Judging the motivation and desire to do well in the Europa Conference League
  • Take note of the team news for each Europa Conference League match
  • Consider the fixture list of each team participating in the ECL
  • Know all the latest statistics

These are undoubtedly five excellent methods you absolutely must follow this season if you want to predict the Europa Conference League like an expert. For more details, please read the following paragraphs.

Pay attention to the latest results

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-10The first tip, which is logical but not always applied by beginners, is to pay attention to the latest performances of the teams. We're not just talking about analyzing results, but also, and above all, what the various clubs have achieved recently in the game.

For example, let's say a team taking part in the Europa Conference League has suffered two 4-0 defeats in the league, with only two shots on target. The team would then appear to not be in the kind of form that will do well in the Europa Conference League. It is important to look at the strength of teams they have been facing. West Ham won the Europa Conference League despite battling relegation for most of the season. 

Teams that have been getting good domestic results may be worth betting on in this competition. Again look at the strength of the opposition they have been playing and who they are taking on in the Europa Conference League. 

A club's collective form is very important for its future performances. You should never forget this when betting with a football bookmaker.

Judging the motivation and desire to do well in the Europa Conference League

Another tip for betting well on the Europa Conference League is to judge the clubs' real motivation in this third European competition. For several years now, we have seen a difference in the interest shown by clubs in this third competition. There will be weakened line-ups fielded by many sides. They may well want to rest players for key domestic fixtures often played just three days later. Other sides may be more keen to do well and reap some financial rewards. This will grow as the tournament progresses. 

Between a club that takes advantage of the competition to rotate its squad and another that plays it to the hilt to make a name for itself on the European stage, your prediction needs to look at how strong a squad the rotating club has. Can they leave players out but still have enough quality players to get the win?

Take note of the team news for each Europa Conference League match

prediction-conferenceleague-sporty-01092023-8This third tip can be used in conjunction with the previous one: systematically consult the list of players announced as not scheduled to play in the Europa Conference League match on which you want to place a prediction. Suspension, rest, injury... the reasons for absence can be numerous, and can have an impact on a team's collective performance.

Imagine, for example, that Aston Villa's best players are all rested for their Conference League group game. In that case, beware: the loss of talent on the pitch could be costly and skew your analysis. Before making your Europa Conference League predictions, get into the habit of reading the squads for Thursday's matches. It's a sure-fire way of avoiding costly errors.

Consider the fixture list of each team taking part in the ECL

In view of the points mentioned above, the sporting calendar of the clubs is also a factor to be taken into account before making any predictions about the Europa League Conference. Is a club due to play a key fixture in its domestic league on the Sunday following its European duel?  It is likely that the side will place more emphasis on the upcoming match.. 

For your analysis of the Europa League Conference to be relevant at all levels, you need to look at the teams' past and future fixtures. A club that is facing a long run in the league, or even in the domestic cup, may be tempted to rest a few key players for this European football competition.

Ajax will compete in the Conference League first knockout round
