Let's look at how the Europa League works. There are a variety of ways that teams across Europe can qualify for this competition, and it's important for future betting to learn how to qualify for the Europa League: 

  • League Position

Each domestic league has at least one place available to qualify for the Champions League. This is given to the side that finishes highest outside of the Champions League places. Depending on which side(s) wins a domestic cup in that country, more Europa League places may be available for league finishes. For example, Manchester City won the English League Cup and Manchester United won the FA Cup in 2016. As these sides finished fourth and fifth respectively in the Premier League table, thus qualifying for European competition automatically, sixth place Southampton and seventh place West Ham were given their Europa League spots.

  • Domestic Cup Win

Many European football associations are awarded Europa League places for their domestic cup winners. In England, there is Europa League qualification available for both FA Cup and League Cup winners, although only England and France are given qualification places for both of their domestic cup competitions.

  • Champions League Drop Out

Sides who finish third in their Champions League groups are given places in the Europa League knockout rounds. Many sides who have dropped down from the Champions League have gone on to win the Europa League, most recently Sevilla who won in 2016.

To help you with your own Europa League betting, it's important to know which sides have been the most successful in this competition in recent years. On many occasions, those teams who have had recent success in this tournament  continue that pedigree with in the subsequent campaigns, with Sevilla the prime example. Many Europa League winners have played in the Champions League that same season, finishing third in the group to drop into the Europa League before winning this competition. Let's take a look at some Europa League favourites in recent times, those that have won the Europa League/UEFA Cup in the last twenty years. Those sides with UCL in brackets means they started their European adventures that season playing in the Champions League, finishing third in their group and therefore dropping into the Europa League.
