Europa League Conference 2022/2023

Roma became the first team in history to lift the Europa League Conference trophy this year, overcoming Dutch side Feyenoord in the 2022 final in Tirana, Albania.

As far as the English teams were concerned, it was disappointment for Tottenham Hotspur as they were knocked out of the competition in the group stages, while Leicester City enjoyed a run to the semi-final stage before losing to the eventual victors Roma.

But Roma will not be defending their crown, qualifying for the Europa League via their Europa Conference League win, and staying in the competition after the group stage.

Going into the group stage, Villarreal were the early favourites for the Europa Conference League and they secured their spot in the knockout stages after just four games. Even after dropping points in their final two matches, Villarreal still did enough to qualify directly to the last 16, avoiding the knockout round playoffs.

Joining Villarreal in the last 16 will be West Ham, the only side to be perfect in the group stage. Across their six matches, the Hammers beat Anderlecht, Silkeborg and FCSB, scoring 13 goals in the process. But they, and Villarreal, will be weary of the teams dropping down from the Europa League, which include Lazio and Trabzonspor.

Europa Conference League knockout stage line up

As with last year, the group winners have qualified directly for the last 16 while the runners-up will face the Europa League League third-placed sides in the knockout round playoffs.

  • Group winners: Istanbul Basaksehir, West Ham, Villarreal, Nice, AZ, Djurgardens, Sivasspor, Slovan Bratislava
  • Group runners-up: Fiorentina, Anderlecht, Lech Poznan, Partizan, Dnipro, Gent, Cluj, Basel
  • Europa League dropouts: Bodo/Glimt, AEK Larnaca, Ludogorets, Braga, Sheriff, Lazio, Qarabag, Trabzonspor

Europa Conference League Predictions

A total of 177 teams from well over 50 UEFA member associations have participated in the second Europa Conference League, with just 24 remaining.

Who are the favourites for the title? Which teams will go under the radar?

We offer our insight below.


Outright Predictions

Villarreal and West Ham are widely considered to be among the favourites to lift the trophy next June.

Just two seasons ago Villarreal were winning a European competition, beating Manchester United in the 2020/21 Europa League final. West Ham, meanwhile, will be hoping for another deep run in a European competition having reached the semi-finals of the Europa League last season before losing to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt.

Dark Horses

Of course, it will not be completely straightforward for those two teams.

European regulars like Anderlecht, Braga and Alkmaar will to look to pose genuine threats to their chances. There are also big names like Fiorentina, Nice, Lazio and Istanbul Basaksehir still in the competition, either making it through the group or dropping down from the Europa League.
