Tonight's Europa League Betting Tips

When do we post Europa League betting tips?

Europa League predictions, tips and previews are relatively straightforward to produce on FootballTips.com because the matches are entirely separate entities to the fixtures that clubs play in their own countries.

It’s not like in domestic competitions where what happens in one game will inevitably influence the odds for the next. As teams are facing opponents from different nations in the Europa League, the odds tend to remain fairly static until betting activity ramps up in the day or two before the match.

Therefore, it allows us to take a view earlier about what is likely to happen in a Europa League game and you can often find our previews available perhaps three or four days before the fixture takes place.

This is especially true during the group stage and perhaps even more so in the knockout phase, especially as the latter takes place later in the season, from February through to May, when the form is less volatile than earlier in the campaign and you have a good idea about what each team is capable of.

We always ensure the information and odds we provide are as up to date as possible, although sometimes during the group stage we may not be able to publish some of the previews for the lower-profile fixtures until a day or two beforehand due to the sheer volume of games taking place.

What are the best Europa League tips?

It literally can be anything, because our philosophy is that a winner is a winner! If it makes a profit, does it really matter?

In saying that, we know that most people like to bet on the outcome of a match, whether it will be a home win, away win or draw, and whenever possible that is what we tip.

Of course, we could predict the winner of any game, but the odds for some Europa League fixtures can be quite one-sided when, for instance, one of the big guns faces a qualifier at home.

But that does not tend to be the case as often in the Europa League as it is in the Champions League, primarily because the secondary competition is, by its very nature, less prestigious and clubs do not always value it so highly.

This can lead to some taking it more seriously than others and so, with certain managers choosing to rotate their line-up to potentially rest key players for bigger domestic games at the weekend, shocks can occur. You often find at the end of the Europa League round-robin stage that the final group tables bear little resemblance to what you might have expected at the outset.

To that end, occasionally we think a hot favourite is worth opposing and that is when the Double Chance market (a team to win or draw) comes into play if an upset looks on the cards.

Otherwise, we will consider Both Teams To Score, Over/Under goals, Handicap betting, First/Last Goalscorer, Double Result (half-time/full-time) and even Correct Score on the matches that look to have an inevitable outcome.

In the knockout stage, when a tie looks fairly well balanced, we will also look at the To Qualify market before the first leg if we have formulated a view that one team in particular is well set to advance to the next round.

How reliable are your Europa League predictions?

That’s the big question! Like we’ve said above, this can sometimes be a tricky competition to bet on but we absolutely give 100% to finding the best Europa League bets and are confident we can at the very least match any other tipster out there.

Another thing to be wary of is towards the end of the group stage when teams may have already qualified. Come November/December time, clubs are right in the midst of their domestic campaigns and may have big league games coming up. That is when managers can especially make big changes to their Europa League line-ups if their fate is already known.

Europa League at a glance

The UEFA Europa League is the secondary competition contested by clubs from across Europe, taking place in the shadow of the more prestigious Champions League and operating a similar format.
There are three distinct sections to a Europa League campaign. Firstly, qualifying matches take place in July and August, which gives the continent’s ‘minnows’ a chance to try and earn the right to face their more powerful rivals as the competition progresses.

Then, from September through to December, the group stage takes place on Thursdays following the Champions League action on Tuesday/Wednesday. Some teams have direct entry into the group stage and are joined by the qualifiers, with 48 clubs divided into 12 groups of four. They play each other at home and away and the top two in each final table advance.

Those 24 remaining clubs contest the knockout stage, joined by eight ‘refugees’ from the Champions League who finished third in their respective groups. Those 32 teams meet in two-legged ties until two are left and meet in a one-off showdown for the trophy at a pre-determined venue.

Sevilla are the most successful club in UEFA Cup/Europa League history, their five victories all coming between 2007 and 2016, ahead of Juventus, Inter Milan and Liverpool who head the English contingent.

Courtesy of Sevilla’s success, Spain has provided the Europa League champions on more occasions than any other country, with their other winners being Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Valencia.

Italy are second on the list thanks to Juventus, Inter Milan, Parma and Napoli, while England’s winners in addition to Liverpool are Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Chelsea and Ipswich Town.
