Europa League Tips & Predictions

The Europa League is Europe’s second largest tournament, and here at the MansionBet Blog our team of expert writers keep you up to date with the latest betting tips and previews.

After a five-month delay, the football floodgates are open once again. UEFA has condensed both the Europa League and the Champions League into 19 days, and 26 matches, of top-flight football. The Champions League will complete in Portugal. The Europa League will play out in Germany, with the final at the RheinEnergieStadion, in Cologne.

Team up with MansionBet and make every shot count with the best Europa League previews and predictions.

Europa League Final Winners

Poland was set to host the final of the Europa League but that honour now rests with Germany and Cologne’s RheinEnergieStadion. The venue capacity is just shy of 50,000 but the game will (probably) be played behind closed doors.

Last year, the Europa League saw two Premier League clubs face off, when an on-form Chelsea squad obliterated Arsenal 4-1. With a two-goal tally, Eden Hazard was the man of the match. The game would have certainly eased his €150 million move to Real Madrid.

Until the 2009-10 season, the Europa League was called the UEFA Cup. The final was also played over two legs, as recently as the 1996-97 season. To date Sevilla holds the record for the most victories.

The real joy of the Europa League lies in its upsets. This is the tournament where underdogs create memories for the fans that will last a lifetime. It’s also a fantastic betting opportunity for the canny gambler. MansionBet will have action on every fixture.
