There is a new European competition for lower-ranked teams in Europe: the Europa Conference League. Even though this competition is for lower-ranked teams in their respective domestic leagues, some top clubs are expected to feature in this competition for this season.
Conference League Predictions
Back in the days, European club football had three competitions before Uefa Changed it to 2 (the Uefa Champions League and the Europa League). Now, they have changed it back to three, but who would be the winner of this competition as a chance to go into the Europa League? Read on for our Europa Conference League outright tips.
Who Will Win The Europa Conference League 2021/2022?
For us, there are only 2 two top contenders of the Europa Conference League, and that is Tottenham and AS Roma. These two clubs are expected to blow the other teams away if they play at their full squad strengths, but who would lift the trophy between the two?
Our Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur to Lift the Trophy
Tottenham is the team that has the most incredible squad and experience at top-level football. The previous Champions League finalists would have to do extra to win this trophy from Mourinho’s As Roma because they won’t be a pushover.
- Betway: Tottenham to win the Europa Conference League is 5.00 at Betway.
AS Roma, Basel, Feneeyord and Rennes are other teams that can challenge for this title.
Group Winners Prediction– Which Team Would Win The Group Stage And Qualify
The Europa Conference League group stage has some unique features. The teams are grouped into 8 groups, and the winner of the group goes straight into the round of 16, while the second and third plays a play-off to determine who would join the group winners in the round of 16.
However, the betting platforms only offer markets for the group winners and the top 2 teams, which we would be focusing our predictions on.
Group A: LASK to Win and Tel Aviv for Top 2
LASK is no newcomer in European competitions, and we think they have what it takes to topple over other teams in this group. The Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv is expected to hold the second position.
- LASK to win the group is 1.80 at Betway, and Maccabi Tel Aviv FC to occupy the second position is 1.55 at Betway.
Group B Prediction: Genk 1st and Belgrade for Top 2
Genk is the top shot in this group, and we expect them to walk over other teams quickly. Also, we expect Belgrade to occupy the second position of their group and qualify for the play-offs.
- Genk to win the group is 1.80 at Betway, and Belgrade to occupy the second position is 1.40 at Betway.
Group C Prediction: AS Roma 1st and Glimit for Top 2
This group houses another Europa Conference League serious title challenger: Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma. They revamped their squad with the addition of Tammy Abraham from Chelsea, and we expect them to win their group and move to the finals.
- AS Roma to win the group is 1.28 at Betway, and Glimit to occupy the second position is 2.15 at Betway.
Group D Prediction: Az Alkmaar 1st and Cluj for Top 2
Az Alkmaar is not a new name on the European stage. The club has had various appearances in top European competitions, and that experience plus their firepower would help them top this group. On the other hand, Cluj is a decent side that we don’t see any other team in the group preventing them from being among the top two.
- Az Alkmaar to win the group is 1.40 at Betway, and Cluj to occupy the second position is 1.75 at Betway.
Group E Prediction: Feyenoord 1st and Union Berlin to Qualify
Feyenoord has declined over the past few seasons but seem to be slowly making the way up in their domestic league. We expect them to go far in this competition and Union Berlin to do just enough for second place.
- Feyenoord to win the group is 2.75 at Betway, and Union Berlin to occupy the second position is 1.70 at Betway.
Group F Prediction: FC Copenhagen 1st and POAK for Top 2
Merely looking at the teams’ quality, the strength of their leagues and the quality of players shows that the Danish side FC Copenhagen should have no issue being top of the group. The Greece side POAK is expected to do just enough to clinch the second spot.
- FC Copenhagen to win the group is 1.99 at Betway, and POAK to occupy the second position is 1.15 at Betway.
Group G Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 1st and Rennes for Second Place
This group houses favorites to win this competition. Tottenham Hotspur is our favorite to win this competition, and we don’t think any team in their group can stop them from the first position – not even Rennes that we expect to win the second place.
- Tottenham to win the group is 1.35 at Betway, and Rennes to occupy the second position is 1.35 at Betway.
Group H Prediction: FC Basel 1st and Qarabag FK for Top 2
FC Basel is one of the favorites to win the 2021/2022 Europa Conference League, and we expect them to join other favorites to win their group without any struggle.
- FC Basel to win the group is 1.60 at Betway, and Qarabag FK to occupy the second position is 2.05 at Betway.
Who Will Win The Golden Boot?
The Europa Conference League features top players like Tammy Abraham, Harry Kane, Son, among others. Harry Kane seems like the best bet for this competition, but we think he might not play most of the games due to EPL fixtures. However, we think Tammy Abraham of AS Roma would be the top scorer of this competition.
