2022/23 Europa League presentation - Football
The UEFA Europa League is the second most important European football competition. It is less prestigious than the Champions League, but it has evolved over the last ten years to become an important and increasingly popular competition. The most recent winners include Eintracht Frankfurt, Villarreal, Sevilla, Chelsea, Manchester United and Atlético Madrid.
The Europa League pits some of the best teams in Europe against each other, based on their domestic rankings or domestic cup result. When the group stages are completed, the winners go into the last 16. The sides finishing second then place the eight teams who finished third in the Champions League groups in the play-off round to determine the remaining eight teams in the last 16. Those finishing third in their group are transferred to the Europa Conference League.
Whoever wins the Europa League earns themselves a place in the group stages of the next season’s Champions League. Sometimes the winners have already qualified. However, that wasn’t the case in the 2021/22 season when Eintracht Frankfurt beat Rangers to win the final and earn a Champions League group place, despite a mid-table finish in the Bundesliga. Who can succeed the Frankfurt players, who won the title last year? Make your predictions!

Expert tips Statistical Analysis for your Europa League Predictions
The most important thing to know about the Europa League is that it remains one of the most action-packed competitions in the world.. Whether in the qualifying stages, group stages or in the finals, the overall goal average is 2.71, one of the highest of any international tournament. Needless to say, the Europa League is a season-long spectacle, much to the delight of fans. In the 2022-2023 season, the 'Over 2.5 goals' will be interesting to play with in your Europa League predictions.
Another important figure to remember when betting on the Europa League is the high proportion of home wins. For many seasons, and this has been further proved in 2021-2022, almost half of the games are won by the home team, 43% to be precise. Given the odds usually offered by sports betting sites - usually around 1.50 - it will be necessary to try more than once for the 2022-2023 edition of the Europa League. For your information, 29% of the matches last year saw a victory for the visitors, compared to 28% drawn.
In order to bet on the Europa League, you should also bear in mind that there are a lot of goals scored, making the over 2.5 market attractive. Last season, 47% of the matches saw more than 2.5 goals in the match, and 30% more than 3.5 goals. Here again the bookmakers' offers can be attractive so don't hesitate to try this market.. For example, last year, bet365 had some great odds.So don't neglect this market.
Another key statistic of the Europa League is the number of goals scored by away teams. Last season, 67% of games saw the visiting teams score at least one goal in the group stage, with the ratio rising to 72% in the knockout rounds. This is the type of market that you should focus on when making your Europa League bets this season.
Then, if you like to bet on goals per quarter of an hour, note that the Europa League is like other competitions in terms of statistics recorded. Last year, as is often the case, it was the 61-75' period that still had the most goals. In total, about 21% of the counters were scored in this interval last year, so don't underestimate this market which is often offered at odds of around 1.80 at various sports betting sites.
Finally, another statistic if you want to bet on the long term with the Europa League, you should also know that last year five players scored more than five goals in this competition. Also, remember that there will be teams coming into the competition from the Champions League. However, in the last five seasons, only one winner (Atletico Madrid) had been in the Champions League group stages. Before betting on the Europa League, remember to consult the Champions League prediction of our experts, it will help you for the knockout phase.
How to bet on Europa League matches?
Let's deal now with the subject that will interest you greatly: the factors to take into account before betting on a Europa League football match. First of all, you will have to keep an eye on the form of the key players. By this we mean that a team will often be dependent on its greatest talents in European competition. If a player of the calibre of Fekir or Iglesias is not fit for Sevilla, then you should not put too much money on a Spanish success against a tricky team. For the same reason, you should know suspended or injured players before you place your bet, otherwise your pre-betting analysis will be completely altered.
Beyond the form of the key players, the real intentions of the clubs involved will also be a real pillar for your Europa League predictions. As you know, it sometimes happens that the clubs qualified for Europa League prefer focusing on the national competitions and weakened line-ups are played.
Then, the importance of the match you want to bet on will also be a determining factor for your bets on this Europa League. For example, if a team has already qualified for the round of 16 during the group stage, you should avoid placing a bet on them against a team that can still hope to qualify. This doesn’t quite happen so much now due to the importance of winning the group compared to coming second. Remember the winners go into the last 16, while the second has to play a play-off round against the third in a Champions League group. Then there’s the third place to play for with a move to the Europa Conference League rather than finishing fourth and your European season being over.
Finally, and we can't stress this enough, don't forget to compare sports betting sites and their odds before betting on the second European competition. As you know, for the same bet, bookmakers can offer different odds. It’s better to have an account with different sites to place your bet at the best potential payout. For example, If Arsenal are playing Nantes, bet365 may offer 1.5 on an Arsenal win but Bwin might only be offering 1.45. So watch out, in the long run your winnings could be multiplied!
Which prediction for the best striker of the Europa League?
As with many competitions, online betting sites offer you the chance to bet on the top scorer in the Europa League in 2022-2023. As we mentioned earlier, there is usually a fierce competition in this particular ranking among players, many scorers may want to win the title of top scorer. If you want to make a prediction on who will be the top scorer in the Europa League, there are a few simple rules that will help you get it right.
For example, taking into account the usual tactics of the teams the players are playing for will be smart. Despite all the talent in the world, if a striker finds himself in a team that plays defensively, it will be difficult for him to pile up goals in the competition. For the same reason, you should also choose a player who is likely to play a lot of games in the tournament. In other words, a striker from a team that is likely to go far in the Europa League will be preferable for your prediction on the best striker. As talented as he is, a player playing for Braga, for example, is less likely to become top scorer than one playing for Lazio or Manchester United.
