The Europa League can be hard to predict – although the winners have come from either Spain or England every season since 2011/12. However, this season’s English and Spanish entrants have minimal recent European pedigree and Italian side Napoli began as early-season favourites.
English Premier League pair Leicester and West Ham both have big ambitions though, and with exciting players such as Jamie Vardy, James Maddison, Michail Antonio, and Said Benrahma in their respective ranks, can’t be discounted.
Other clubs in the running include French side Lyon and German outfit Bayer Leverkusen – both of whom have good European records and are familiar with the knockout stages of the Champions League. Real Sociedad and Real Betis will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Spanish compatriots Villarreal, Sevilla, and Atletico Madrid, all of whom have won the tournament since 2018.
It’s worth bearing in mind when assessing Europa League betting odds that eight clubs move into the competition from the Champions League after the group stages – in 2020/21 that included Manchester United, who made it all the way to the final.
One of the most intriguing markets on Europa League betting sites challenges you to name both teams to make the final in Seville 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 is worth considering, however, that 2011 was the last time 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 Lyon, PSV Eindhoven and Bayer Leverkusen.

Villarreal won their first major trophy since the club was founded 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 (goalkeeper David de Gea was the only player to miss his spot-kick), following a 1-1 draw in normal time.
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 declared the player of the tournament. The award was voted for by coaches of all the teams that qualified for the group stage, along with 55 journalists selected by the European Sports Media group. Moreno pipped the Manchester United pair of Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani.
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.
