Here are some notes of major line movements throughout the competition:

  • [May 23] Atalanta have done it! The Nerazzurri  were +180 underdogs against the undefeated Leverkusen going into the final, but hat-trick hero Ademola Lookman has powered the side from Bergamo to their first-ever European title.
  • [May 10] The Europa League Final in Dublin is now set, with Bayer Leverkusen and Atalanta both advancing Thursday night. Leverkusen (-119) continue their unbeaten run across all competitions by outlasting last year’s runner-up Roma.   They’ll receive no quarter in the finals from Atalanta (+297), who had already shocked Liverpool before comfortably defeating Marseille in the semifinals.
  • [Apr 19] We have our four semifinalists! Atalanta (+300) survived the second leg against Liverpool and are drawn against Marseilles (+800), the French club that overcame the worst odds of the previous round before qualifying for the semis. On the other side of the bracket are AS Roma (+450) and Bayer Leverkusen (-120), who’s comprehensive performance in the Bundesliga this season certainly helps peg them as favorites to win the Europa League.
  • [Apr 12] Liverpool’s surprise 3-0 home loss to Atalanta has seen the former Europa favorite’s odds drop from -110 to +1100, while the club for Bergamo now sit as second-favorite at +450.
  • [Mar 16] We have our quarterfinalists! No major odds movement to report among the final eight teams, though Atalanta (+2000) has seen a large drop in odds, now that they’ve been paired with favorites Liverpool (+100).
  • [Feb 23] The one shock in the Knockout Round Playoffs came from Sparta Prague, who overturned a 3-2 deficit in Istanbul with a resounding 4-1 defeat of Champions League transfer Galatasaray. As a reward, Sparta (+15000) now face tournament favorites Liverpool (+175) in the Round of 16.
  • [Dec 19] The Europa League Knockout Round Playoff Draw was made and the matches will begin February 15. The runners up during the Group Stage will face the teams that dropped down from the Champions League. Those UCL teams include: Galatasary, Lens, Braga, Benfica, AC Milan, Young Boys and Shakhtar Donetsk.
  • [Oct 16] Liverpool have won both of their opening group stage games and are significant +300 favorites to win the Europa League with Roma second overall at +1200. Roma have also won both games and are tied with Slavia Prague for first in Group G
  • [Sept 1] The Europa League Group Stage draw is complete snd Liverpool at +350 odds are the clear favorites. It’s another EPL side, Brighton who comes in at a distance second at odds of +1200.

Last year’s final was won by Sevilla who drew with AS Roma 1-1 before going on to win in penalties 4-1.

Sometimes it’s worth waiting to bet on the Europa League winner until one of the Champions League teams drops down into the competition. After the UCL Group Stage, often, some big-time clubs drop into the mix and completely shake up the odds.

Despite the tournament featuring some of the lesser teams in Europe, the title is still often lifted by a side coming from one of the big five leagues in the continent. That’s been the case in each of the past 12 years. Porto from the Portuguese Primeira Liga won in 2010. In 2009 Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk were the last winners of the competition when it was still called the UEFA Cup

Spain, England and Italy have dominated this competition over the years with 14, nine and nine titles respectively. Next in line is Germany with six winners and Netherlands with four.

Teams With Most Europa League Titles

That Spain leads the pack is heavily attributed to the recent success of Sevilla and Atlético Madrid. Sevilla were three-time winners from 2014-2016 and won in back-to-back years in 2006 and 2007. With 2023’s win they’ve extended their record to seven Europa League titles and five in the past nine years.

Even though Juventus and Inter rank near the top of the all-time records with three wins each, it’s been a long time since either has won a UEL trophy. Juventus last won 1993, while Inter did so in 1998. Obviously, these teams are often not participating in the competition, as they’re typically involved in the Champions League.

French side Marseille and Portuguese Benfica have come up just short on themost occasions, having been a runner-up three times each. Both did so recently with Marseille in 2018 and Benfica in 2014.
