Europa League 2023/2024

The Europa League is the secondary competition in European football and every year the ‘best of the rest’ from across the top leagues on the continent for the chance to lift the famous trophy.

Sevilla are once again the defending champions, beating Roma in the 2022/23 final to claim the Europa League crown for a record-extending seventh time — four more than any other club. It also means a Spanish side has won the Europa League in nine of the 15 seasons since the competition rebranded from the UEFA Cup.

So will there be a new name on the trophy, or will Sevilla drop down from the Champions League to make it eight?

Who are the 2023/24 Europa League favourites?

The set up of the Europa League means that we don’t really know who is going to be taking part in the latter stages of the competition yet, and you don’t even get the full picture until the end of the group stage when the Champions League dropouts join.

However, we do know the 32 teams involved in the group stage, including Europa Conference League holders West Ham United, who set a new English club record of 17 European games unbeaten before finally falling to defeat against Olympiacos, and early favourites Liverpool, who have started their campaign with three straight wins against LASK, Union SG and Toulouse.

Jose Mourinho’s Roma side are looking to go one step further after finishing as runners-up to the aforementioned Sevilla last season and have made the perfect start with three wins and two clean sheets in their opening three matches, currently sitting at joint second favourites at 12/1.

Brighton’s maiden European campaign sees them face Ajax, Marseille and AEK Athens in a baptism of fire. They followed up a 3-2 opening day defeat to AEK with a 2-2 draw away at Marseille, thanks to a late equaliser from Joao Pedro, and their first ever European victory – a 2-0 win over struggling side Ajax at the Amex.

Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen have taken their league form into Europe, to make it 10 straight wins across all competitions as Xabi Alonso’s dreams of a unlikely double continue. The German side have been priced at 12/1, joint second favourites alongside Alonso’s former manager Jose Mourinho and his Roma side.

A Full Time result bet is the most popular style of bet on any given match in any competition. The premise is quite simple here, you’re just backing what you expect the outcome to be – a victory for either side or a draw. Many punters often combine several of our Europa League betting tips in this market in order to create a longer-odds accumulator, a particularly intriguing idea in this competition with so many games tending to be played at the same time.

As above, Both Teams To Score is a market that you will find to be particularly popular in the earlier stages of the competition when there’s a raft of games being played at the same time on a Thursday evening. You are betting on both teams to find the net over the course of the 90 minutes and it’s a bet that lends itself to long accumulators with the same selection backed on a range of different matches. Coral are a bookmaker that offers an easy route to a BTTS coupon.

The Squawka Bet experts love a stats market too! You can now bet on how many shots or even shots on target a player will take over the course of the 90-minute match, a market that is likely to be utilised later in the campaign when you’re settling down to watch a specific tie. You can also bet on a certain player to make a certain amount of tackles during a game – with some bookmakers offering a large amount of different numbers of tackles to be made.

How about those players that are set to mistime their tackles? You can back teams to receive over a certain number of bookings in a game, or the match to have a certain amount of bookings – or even a specific player to be shown a card during the game such will be the depth of markets available on Europa League games in the 2023/2024 season.

In last year’s competition (from group stage to final), Roma’s Gianluca Mancini received more yellow cards than any other player, being shown six across his 14 games – three in the group stage and three in the knockout rounds. Unsurprisingly, Roma were also the team with the most yellow cards (39) have been in the competition from the start all the way to the final. If you wanted to look at yellow cards per game, Sturm Graz were the worst culprits with 21 yellow cards in six matches, for an average of 3.5 per game.

Best Bookmakers for betting on the Europa League

The Europa League has become one of the most exciting markets for bookmakers for a handful of reasons. Not only does it possess some of the biggest names in European football each and every year, including some that drop out of the Champions League after the group stages, but almost all games are played on a Thursday night, meaning it is rarely competing with domestic fixtures or Champions League games.

Now, most bookmakers really see the value of these fixtures, with English teams such as Manchester United and Chelsea lifting the trophy in the last few years and fans tending to show more and more interest as the tournament progresses and the chance of silverware increases.

That means you can find a host of Europa League betting offers and enhanced accumulators every Thursday throughout the season with most bookmakers, including the ones below – which we have selected as our favourites in this particular competition.

What other competitions do you offer tips for?

Of course, the Europa League’s matches are mostly scheduled for a Thursday evening, when there generally aren’t games in other competitions taking place. However, if you’re looking for tips for another day, we’ve got you covered with a whole range of different tournaments, competitions and leagues right here at Squawka Bet.
