Europa League Predictions

Get your predictions ready for the 2023-2024 Europa League! Once again this season, Europe's second-largest club competition promises to be an exciting affair. It's ideal for placing lots of bets on. We'll be providing you with lots of free previews throughout the season.

Formerly known as the UEFA Cup, the Europa League brings together some of Europe's best teams, all of whom qualified due to their success last season. Sevilla won the Europa League last season but start this new term in the Champions League. The format of the competition has seen some changes in recent seasons due to the introduction of the Europa Conference League. 

The format of this competition begins with a qualifying round of two-legged matches. The winners join the clubs already qualified for the group stages. As in the other two European competitions, there are eight groups of four who plate each other once home and away. The eight group winners go straight into the last 16. Those finishing second go into the Knockout play-off round with the eight teams finishing third in their Champions League group.

The eight clubs finishing third in their group are moved into the Europa Conference League Knockout play-off round. The winners of the Europa League Knockout play-off round (played over two legs) join the eight group winners in the last 16. Then it's the last 16, quarter finals and semi-finals (all two-legged ties) to determine who goes into the one-off finale that this season is being played in Dublin, Ireland. The winners go into the group stages of the 2024-25 Champions League, unless already qualified. Who will be the Europa League winners in 2023-2024?

Europa League prediction: The statistics you need to know

Europa League statistics

There are a number of key statistics to consider when making your Europa League predictions, all taken from the current 2023/24 season. First of all, 63% of matches see over 2.5 goals and 41% have over 3.5 goals scored, with an overall average of 3.17 goals per match. As a result, the Europa League remains one of the most spectacular tournaments in the world, which should encourage you to bet on the goals every week of the competition.

Secondly, it's worth noting that away teams regularly get on the scoresheet in the Europa League with a 1.24 goals scored per match average for the visiting team in the 2023/24 campaign. Along with the "Both teams to score" market hitting at a 61% clip, it certainly makes backing either the away team to find the net or both sides to register a goal as the odds for these can often be profitable.

Another key stat for the Europa League is the number of goals scored in the 76-90 time period. 20% of goals were scored during this time, the highest of any 15 minute stretch. That's not too surprising as it also includes added on time.

It should also be noted that home teams are winning 52% of the games this year, with 19% ending in a draw and 28% ending in a win for the visitors.

Europa League predictions 2023 2024

140 games have been played in the Europa League this season to get to the point where just two remain standing ahead of the final. The defending champions Sevilla were in the Champions League this season while the beaten finalists from last year, Roma, made it to the semi-final stage this year before getting knocked out by Bayer Leverkusen. British representation lasted until the quarter-final stage when both Liverpool and West Ham United were knocked out by Atalanta and Bayer Leverkusen respectively, the two finalists.

It now looks all about Bayer Leverkusen, who are the red-hot favourite with the bookmakers to lift the trophy on May 22 and should be hard to beat at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin with the kickoff at 20:00 UK time.
