Villarreal won their first major trophy since they were founded as a club in 1923 and it was the seventh time in the last 10 years that a Spanish side has won the competition. Unai Emery's men beat Manchester United in the final, winning 11-10 on penalties (after Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea missed his spot-kick), after a 1-1 draw in normal time. The game was played in the Gdańsk Stadium in Poland, with this year's final heading, fittingly, to Spain.
Golden Boot Winner
Four players all scored seven goals in the competition to share the top scorer award. Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno helped fire his team to the title, scoring as many as Roma's Borja Mayoral, Lille's Yusuf Yazici and Benfica midfielder Pizzi. While Roma made the semi-finals, incredibly for Pizzi and Yazici, both their sides were knocked out in the last 32.
Player of the Season
As well as sharing the honour of the top goalscorer, Villarreal striker Gerard Moreno was voted for as the player of the tournament. The award was voted for by coaches of all the teams that qualified for group stage, along with with 55 journalists selected by the ESM (European Sports Media) group. Moreno pipped the Manchester United pair of Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani.
The most popular Europa League betting tips are for the English sides. Premier League clubs have won the tournament three times in the last nine years, and several have strong chances this season.
Manchester United, who lifted the trophy under Jose Mourinho’s management in 2017, are high in the Europa League betting. No Italian side has triumphed in the tournament this century, but there will be plenty of Europa League betting tips for Lazio and Napoli.
Real Sociedad and Real Betis are the clubs flying the flag for Spain, which has provided the winning side ten times since the turn of the millennium, and seven times in the last 10 years.
It’s worth knowing, that when assessing Europa League betting odds, it is advisable to wait until clubs have moved into the competition from the Champions League after the group stages.
Bruno Fernandes, the leading scorer in the competition in 2019/20, went well last season, too. He will be well fancied to repeat the feat when Europa League betting online fans assess this market.
Compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo now joins Fernandes as key players for Manchester United and both will vie for all their set-pieces, so should find the target as the competition progresses.
However, he faces opposition in the Europa League betting odds from elsewhere in England, with Michail Antonio at West Ham and Leicester's Jamie Vardy among the prolific strikers still in the competition.
Away from England, there will be plenty of Europa League betting tips for Ciro Immobile – a consistent goalscorer, especially since returning to the country of birth with Lazio five years ago.
One of the most intriguing markets on Europa League betting sites challenges you to name both teams who will make the final in Spain in May.
As soon as the draw for the latter stages is made and the path to the final is clear, this is an exciting method of Europa League betting that boosts your involvement in the competition.
There are strong prospects of an all-Italian final, and it is worth checking out the Europa League betting odds for Lazio and Napoli duelling for the trophy in Seville.
It's worth considering that it was 2011 that the final didn't feature a Spanish or English side. Leicester and West Ham are the English offering, with Real Betis and Real Sociedad Spain's representatives
That said, there hasn’t been a final between sides from the same nation in eight years, so it’s worth looking on Europa League betting sites for the chance to bet on pairings that include serious contenders like Monaco, PSV and Bayer Leverkusen.
Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium
The host venue for the 2022 Europa League final was originally supposed to be the Puskás Aréna, in Hungary's capital, Budapest. However, due to the postponement and relocation of the 2020 final – as a result of the global pandemic – the hosts for the future finals were shifted back a year.
As a result, the 2022 final will be played in the south of Spain, in Seville's Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium, home to Sevilla FC. Opened in 1958, it was host to the 1986 European Cup final, which saw Steaua București beat FC Barcelona 2-0 on penalties after the two sides played out a 0-0 draw.
The last time the tournament's final was played in Spain, it was also in Seville, nearby at the Estadio La Cartuja, where Porto beat Celtic 3-2 and Jose Mourinho picked up his first major European trophy as a manager.
