Europa League Daily Predictions
Who Will Win The Europa League 2021/2022?
The Champions League group stage dropouts join the Europa League in later stages. This fact has always made it hard to predict the Europa League winner accurately. However, we have some favorites in our sights, and we will mention the best favorite at this stage.
Our Prediction: Leicester City to Lift the Trophy
We can’t pretend to be blind to the fact that Leicester City has been developing into a European powerhouse in recent years. They have the squad depth and hunger to go all out for this trophy, and many national and international betting companies have the same thinking, and it shows in their odds.
- Merrybet: Leicester City to win the UEL is 10.00 odds as at the time of this post.
- Betway: Leicester City to win the UEL is 10.00 odds as at the time of this post.
Napoli, Bayern Leverkusen, Braga, Lyon, Lazio, and Westham deserve recognition for their squad quality and team play.
Group Winners Prediction– Which Team Would Win The Group Stage And Qualify
The 2021/22 Europa League group stage will be filled with exciting fixtures in almost all groups. Because of the revised European clubs’ tournaments, the Europa League would now have 32 teams instead of the traditional 48. This is to ensure that enough teams are participating in the Europa Conference League.
Group A: Lyon to Win and Rangers to Qualify
The French giant is our favorite to win this group because of their squad quality and playing system. Group A won’t be an easy group for either of the teams, though, as we expect their games to end with close scorelines like 2-1, 1-0, etc. Rangers are the next team that looks good on the paper to qualify from this group, though Sparta Prague is a top contender for the second position.
- Lyon to win the group is 1.90 at Merrybet, and Rangers to qualify is 1.55 at Betway.
Group B Prediction: Monaco 1st and Real Sociedad to Qualify
The Europa League Group B is another group with three teams of almost equal strength. Monaco, PSV, and Real Sociedad are the three teams that would battle for the top position. However, we expect Moncao to top the group and Real Sociedad to emerge as the second.
- Monaco to win the group is 2.90 at Merrybet, and Real Sociedad to qualify is 1.30 at Betway.
Group C Prediction: Leicester City 1st and Napoli to Qualify
Leicester City is our favorite to lift this trophy if no big team drops out of the Champions League race. However, their group houses another top title contender, and it would be an interesting battle to see which team comes out top. We think Leicester would come out top, and Napoli would come second place.
- Leicester City to win the group is 2,15 at Merrybet, and Napoli to qualify is 1.15 at Betway.
Group D Prediction: Frankfurt 1st and Fenerbahce to Qualify
Some betting platforms consider Frankfurt one of the favorites to win the 2021/2022 Europa League, but we think they are not yet ready. However, we expect them to top their group and for Fenerbahce to come second.
- Frankfurt to win the group is 1.85 at Merrybet, and Fenerbahce to qualify is 2.00 at Betway.
Group E Prediction: Lazio 1st and Marseille to Qualify
Lazio is a top contender also for the Europa League crown, especially with their experienced manager. However, they’ll need to move past this strong group to have a chance to do that. Marseille has what it takes to be in the top two.
- Lazio to win the group is 1.85 at Merrybet, and Marseille to qualify is 1.60 at Betway.
Group F Prediction: Braga 1st and Red Star Belgrade to Qualify
Braga will fancy their chances at winning the Europa League even though we think it would be out of reach for them, but it won’t be surprising if they win it. They should top this group with ease and Red Star Belgrade to sit in the second position.
- Braga to win the group is 2.85 at Merrybet, and Red Star Belgrade to qualify is 1.60 at Betway.
Group G Prediction: Leverkusen 1st and Celtic to Qualify
The German powerhouse Bayern Leverkusen is predicted to go far in this competition. As such, we are rooting for them to win Group G. Celtic might have to fight for the second position with Real Betis, but on paper, Celtic currently looks stronger.
- Leverkusen to win the group is 2.00 at Merrybet, and Celtic to qualify is 1.90 at Betway.
Group H Prediction: Westham 1st and Dinamo Zagreb to Qualify
Westham is among our favorites to win the Europa League because of their squad strength and experienced manager. Westham shouldn’t have any issues qualifying from this group, and we think Zagreb would do just enough to qualify.
- Westham to win the group is 1.70 at Merrybet, and Zagreb to qualify is 1.75 at Betway.
Who Will Win The Golden Boot?
Many top strikers would be featuring in the Europa League this season, which ensures a tough competition for this award. Top contenders are Victor Oshimen of Napoli, Antonio of Westham, Vardy or Iheanacho of Leicester, and others like Mayoral, Pizzi, and Yazici.
We think Antonio of Westham should win the golden boot of this tournament.
- Where to Bet: Nigerian betting companies don’t have this market as of the time of this content.
Other possible winners are as mentioned above, but if Antonio is to play more Europa League matches, he is well-placed to win it with his form.
