How To Win At Europa League Betting

Under new manager Jorge Sampaoli, Sevilla will once again be favorites to win another title, depending how it performs in the Champions League.

Sevilla, however, will have to face a stiffer competition this time around as Manchester United will also contest for a championship. Other teams considered favorites include Inter, Schalke and Zurich.

But things could change depending how things play out in the Champions League. For instance, if a team like Juventus, Atletico Madrid or Paris St-Germain falter on the Champions League stage, the door would be wide open for either of those clubs to make a run at a Europa League crown.

The first set of group play matches will begin on Sept. 15, with the knockout stage slated for February 2017. The round of 16 is set for March 2017 and the quarterfinals are scheduled for April.

The Europa League final will be played at Friends Arena in Solna, Sweden on May 24.
