Europa League Betting Update
May 4, 2020
With football in Germany set to re-start in Germany in early May 2020 thoughts will soon turn to which teams are most likely to win the top team competitions in Europe this year. Both the Champions League and Europa League are hoping to complete their 2020 competitions by playing most of the remaining games behind closed doors in August after allowing domestic competitions to complete in late July. Many football fans use bookmaker free bets to follow their favourite teams in the top competitions and will often back the team they support.
Manchester United are clear favourites with all UK bookmakers to win the Europa League following their improved form in the early part of 2020. United’s most recent game was a 5-0 win in the Europa League away at Austrian Bundesliga side LASK on March 12th and this was a result that underlined the teams increasing confidence particularly as it followed only four days after their mightily impressive victory over arch-rivals Manchester City in the English Premier League.
888Sport currently offer the best odds at 11/4 for the Red Devils to win the Europa League but many bookmakers are currently not quoting live odds. It is often difficult to find all the enhanced odds promotions in the UK particularly when the European football season is in full swing. The Europa League represents the best chance for Man United to qualify for the 2020/21 Champions League and they will be very keen to continue their progression when the quarter-finals are played.
The mighty Wolves are second-favourites with most bookies for Europa League glory and find themselves better fancied than illustrious European teams such as Inter Milan, Sevilla and Roma. That Wolves should be seen as Man United’s main rivals to win the competition outright is a little surprising but Nuno Santo’s team have had a superb season and will be confident of beating Olympiakos in the 2nd League of their last sixteen game at Molineux if indeed the game is eventually played there. The best odds of 11/2 from Skybet for Wolves to win the Europa League do seem a little short particularly with Man Utd in such great form.
