Chelsea won the tournament last season and three more Premier League sides are among the favourites to claim European glory this time around
Who are the favourites to win the Europa League?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side eased out of Group L and are in a good position to reach the last-16 after drawing 1-1 at Club Brugge in the first leg of their round-of-32 match.
Arsenal can be backed at 7/1 (8.0) to go one better than last year and win the Europa League.
The Gunners lost out 4-1 to Chelsea in 2018-19’s showpiece finale in Baku, Azerbaijan – which also cost them a Champions League place – and the Emirates faithful will hope Mikel Arteta can guide them to glory.
With their Premier League campaign faltering, the Spaniard will surely target glory in this competition to endear himself with the north London natives.
Wolves are also 7/1 (8.0) to mark their return to European football in impressive style by lifting their first major trophy since 1980.
The Premier League side were runners-up in the first-ever UEFA Cup – as it was known – in 1972, losing 3-2 to Tottenham on aggregate, and have not taken part in continental competition since 1981.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side came second in a tough group and made their mark in the knockout stages with a 4-0 demolition job of Espanyol in the first leg of their last-32 game.
As well as three victories under former Arsenal manager Unai Emery, the Liga side also claimed the trophy in consecutive seasons under Juande Ramos in 2006 and 2007.
They qualified from Group A after taking 15 points and opened their knockout campaign with a 1-1 draw at Cluj.
Who are the Europa League underdogs?
Jose Bordalas’ men are third in the Spanish top-flight and were runners-up in their Europa League group, with their odds shortening thanks a 2-0 win over last season’s Champions League semi-finalists Ajax in the last-32 first leg.
The capital club previously lost in the final in 1991 when they went down 2-1 to Serie A rivals Inter and face Gent in the round of 32.
Also at the same price are Ajax, who are up against it to overturn a 2-0 deficit against Getafe but will back themselves to do so after reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.
