In recent seasons, clubs such as Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Lazio, Valencia, Borrusia Dortmund, and Sevilla have all featured in Europa League action, with Sevilla winning the cup in both the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.

How To Make Money Betting On Europa League
While the Champions League is only open to teams who win their domestic league title, or finish in up to fourth place in some instances, the Europa League allows less successful teams compete on the European stage.
Winners of domestic cups gain access, as do 15 losing teams from the Champions League third qualifying round, which often results in obscure teams being drawn against some of soccer’s Goliath. This makes the Europa League the perfect competition to bet on.
You should be aware that once the Europa League reaches the 32-team knockout there are eight teams who finished in third-place in that season’s Champions League, so look out for those teams as they will suddenly become hot favorites for the competition.
Historically, Spanish teams seem to perform best in the Europa League, so betting on them is a good way to make money betting on the Europa League. Atletico Madrid won the competition in 2010 and 2012, with Sevilla winning in 2006, 2007 and again in 2014 and 2015.
As will all soccer betting, it pays to research each team’s form, suspensions, and injuries before placing a wager. As the saying goes, fail to prepare, prepare to fail!
