Let’s review our 2022-23 UEFA Europa League predictions

Eintracht Frankfurt won the 2021-22 Europa League, the second such title for them, as they defeated Rangers on penalties in the final after 1-1 in extra time.

The 2022-23 Europa League season is contested among 58 teams, with only 32 teams participating in the competition’s group stage. Two teams from England, Spain, Germany, Italy, and France have automatically qualified to join the groups.

The qualification and its play-offs are in place to determine other teams to play in the Europa League. A total of 28 clubs take part in the qualification. Then 10 teams enter the Europa League group stage and meet the teams qualified from their national leagues directly, the six losing teams from the UCL qualification knockouts and the four losing teams from Round 3 of the UCL qualifiers.

The group stage of the UEFA Europa League comprises eight groups, four teams in each. The best one from each group enters the Round of 16, while the second-placed clubs play the eight third-placed teams knocked out of the UCL.

Each play-off stage consists of two legs, home and away: the knockout round play-offs, the Round of 16, the quarter-finals, and the semi-finals. The final is one match only, set to take place at Puskas Arena in Budapest on 31 May 2023 in the 2022-23 season.

Takebet South Africa offers free UEFA Europa League betting tips on decisive games in the group and the knockout stage involving Arsenal, Roma, Manchester United, Monaco, Lazio, Real Sociedad and other top teams. We also predict the play-off of the qualification: that’s when we start publishing our UEFA Europa League predictions.

Complete list of teams participating in the 2022-23 UEFA Europa League group stage:

  • Roma
  • Arsenal
  • Manchester United
  • Real Betis
  • Real Sociedad
  • Lazio
  • Union Berlin
  • SC Freiburg
  • Nantes
  • Rennes
  • Braga
  • Feyenoord
  • Monaco
  • Sturm Graz
  • Union Saint-Gilloise
  • Midtjylland
  • 10 more teams from the 2022-23 Europa League qualifiers
  • Six more teams dropped out of the 2022-23 UCL qualifiers


The Gunners were absent from European tournaments in the 2021-22 season due to a shallow finish in the 2020-21 EPL, eighth place only. However, they improved significantly in the 2021-22 Premier League and took fifth place with 69 points, only three points short of getting ahead of Tottenham in fourth.

Mikel Arteta continues with Arsenal as the manager.

Gabriel Jesus joined the Gunners from Manchester City during the 2022 summer transfer. The Brazilian forward will be essential to Arsenal in attack, being the second most valued player on the team and the best striker. He ranks fourth by chance to take the Premier League’s 2022-23 Golden Boot.

Bukayo Saka has been the player of the season for Arsenal for two straight years. He scored 11 goals in 36 league appearances in the 2021-22 EPL season and 12 goals overall. Saka will undoubtedly be critical to the club in the 2022-23 UEFA Europa League and the Premier League.

Other key players of Arsenal apart from Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka:

  • Martin Odegaard
  • Emile Smith Rowe
  • Ben White

Manchester United

An extremely troubled Man United is still among the favourites to win the 2022-23 Europa League.

The team is dealing with Cristiano Ronaldo, who is set to leave the club in the summer, and the most disappointing start to the EPL season in years, losing two first league matches under Erik ten Hag. With such a start, the Dutchman is among the favourites to be sacked during the season. However, the problem lies with the management and the atmosphere in and around the club. As a result, Manchester United finished sixth in the 2021-22 EPL, two points clear of West Ham.

Bruno Fernandes produced world-class numbers in the 2020-21 Premier League season with 30 goals contributions. In the 2021-22 season, Bruno finished with the second most goals in the Premier League, scoring 10 goals in 35 matches. He will be instrumental, with or without Ronaldo.

Other key players of Manchester United apart from Ronaldo and Fernandes:

  • Mason Greenwood
  • Marcus Rashford
  • Harry Maguire

How experts analyse UEFA Europa League

Statistical data, result trends, and betting odds play a pivotal role in choosing picks.

Betting odds are analysed for UEFA Europa League tips to understand implied probabilities and choose valuable bets.

Europa League has always been a tough soccer competition as many teams compete for a final spot. Big teams dropping from the Champions League make it even more competitive. Villarreal won the Europa League last season as they could hold Manchester United to a 1-1 draw and won 11-10 on penalties in the final. They showed the resilience that is important to win the Europa League. Villarreal didn’t allow Manchester United almost any big chances as they were compact defensively.

Sevilla are another great example: they are known as the kings of the Europa League as they have won the title six times. They won it three times in a row as they dominated the competition from 2014 to 2016. Sevilla could defend and attack in numbers, with midfielders turning into strikers and wingbacks contributing heavily. During this period, they defeated Liverpool in the finals by three to one. To win the Europa League, a team must be able to play to their strength while attacking and defending in numbers.
