UEFA Europa League Tips
The UEFA Europa League is the second biggest club competition in Europe. Previously called the UEFA Cup, the competition was revamped in 2014 with the winners automatically qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stage the following season.
The title has been won by 28 different clubs, the most successful being Spanish club Sevilla with five titles. The current champions are Atletico Madrid who defeated Marseille in the 2017–18 UEFA Europa League final.
A unique feature of the competition are the eight Champions League teams that drop down to the Europa League when the knock-out stages begin in February. The Europa League final has featured at least one team who transferred from the Champions League for 10 out of the last 11 years.
What this means that any outright bets should not be placed until after the Europa League knock-out stage has been drawn.
