Europa Conference League 2022/2023 Preview and Betting Tips

The new European competition is just in its second season, but its first season delivered an interesting competition, and a record was set. Jose Mourinho of Roma became the first ever coach to win the Champions League (with Porto and Inter Milan), Europa League (with Manchester United), and the Europa Conference League (with Roma). Also, he is a UEFA Super Cup winner.

They’re not playing in this season’s Europa Conference League, but a fellow Italian team, Lazio, is playing. Will they lift the trophy? We don’t know, but let’s see our tips for the 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 2022-2023?

The Europa Conference League of the 2022/23 season presents new teams who will be competing to get a European title for the first time. While they’re almost evenly matched, some teams are favorites. Teams like West Ham, Villarreal, Lazio, Anderlecht, Basel, and Fiorentina will be looking to get their hands on the trophy.

Our Prediction: Villarreal is best suited to lift the trophy. Villarreal has been in good form in Europe, topping their group, but not so convincing in La Liga. However, they’re pretty close to the top position, with few games played. We can’t see any team stopping them, especially after recently lifting the Europa League.

N1BET: Villarreal to win the Europa Conference League is 5.62 odds as of the time of this post.

Playoffs Prediction– Which Team Would Qualify

Some teams like AZ Alkmaar, Djurgarden, Istanbul Basaksehir, Nice, Sivasspor, Villarreal, West Ham, and Slovia Bratislava have all qualified for the round of 16. In contrast, the other 16 teams will have to play against each other in the playoffs to qualify for the round of 16.

That said, let’s see teams that we think might progress from this stage.

Match A: Qarabag FK Qualify against Gent

Qarabag is one of those teams that dropped down from the Europa League. However, they’re not to be messed with, as they have a unique approach to their gameplay.

Gent has not been convincing in the Europa Conference league so far, winning just 2 games, drawing 2, and losing 2.

Where to Bet:

Qarabag to qualify is 1.95 odds at N1Bet.

Match B: Basel to Qualify against Trabzonspor

Basel has been good in Europe this season, although they finished second in their group. On the other hand, Trabzonspor will not be a pushover as the club has quality players in the Turkish League.

We think Basel will edge them slightly, given their experience in European knockout stages.

Where to Bet:

Basel to qualify is 2.10 odds at N1bet.

Match C: Lazio to Qualify against CFR Cluj

Lazio is one of the favorites to lift the Europa Conference League, and we think they’ll progress. Lazio is currently in the top half of the Serie A table and has had a good run of games and results.

CFR Cluj has had a good run in the Europa Conference League this season, but their real test will come from Lazio’s hands. There is a possibility that they will progress, but it looks unlikely.

Where to Bet:

Lazio to qualify is 1.20 odds at N1bet.

Match D: Bodo/Glimt to Qualify against Lech Poznan

These are teams that are not much known in Europe. We picked Bodo/Glimt to qualify due to squad quality and experience playing in some European games.

Lech Poznan had a good campaign, but it was filled with draws, as they won only 1 match and lost 1, and the rest was a draw.

Where to Bet:

Bodo/Glimt to qualify is 1.40 odds at N1bet.

Match E: Fiorentina to Qualify against Braga

Fiorentina is a top Italian team, despite falling by their standards in recent seasons. In the Europa Conference League, they have won 4 games, lost 1, and drawn 1. They accumulated 13 points, scoring 14 goals and conceding 6.

Even though Braga is a tough test, we think Fiorentina will qualify for the next round.

Where to Bet:

Fiorentina to qualify is 1.57 odds at N1bet.

Match F: Dnipro to Qualify against AEK Larnaca

Dnipro is a side known to be stubborn in European games, and this time, they face an easier opponent in their Europa Conference League Playoff round. They qualified from their group, winning 3 matches, losing 1, and drawing 1.

AEK Larnaca will surely pose a threat, but we don’t think they have the quality to cause an upset.

Where to Bet:

Dnipro to qualify is 1.73 odds at N1bet.

Match G: Partizan to Qualify against Sheriff

Sheriff won Real Madrid in their first-ever Champions League appearance making news headlines if you can remember. However, after the brief UCL stint, they have been going down and unable to find their way back. They face a strong opponent for their Europa Conference League Playoffs, and we think they won’t go through.

Partizan is a stubborn side that can be very difficult to break down by opposing teams. With the lack of quality on the Sheriff’s side, we think Partizan will go through.

Where to Bet:

Partizan to qualify is 1.73 odds at N1bet.

Match H: Anderlecht to Qualify against Ludogorets

Anderlecht has been a decent side in Europe for many seasons but dropped in quality in recent seasons. However, they’re in the process of re-establishing themselves, starting with winning this round. They finished second in their group, having won just 2, drawn 2, and lost 2 games.

They are a defensively-minded side and can cause havoc on a counterattack. We back them to qualify for this round.

Where to Bet:

Anderlecht to qualify is 1.69 odds at N1bet.

Who Will Win the Europa Conference League 2022/23 Golden Boot?

The Europa Conference League golden boot race is close, as many players are willing to win it. Currently, the top scorer Dovbyk is on 5 goals and plays for Dnipro, but we think their journey in this competition will not last long.

Our Prediction: Morales of Villarreal is our best pick to win the  Golden Boot award. He is currently on 4 goals, and his team has the potential to reach the finals. If they do, he will be a crucial part, which means goals scored.
