UEFA Europa League 2022-23 predictions: season preview
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 being able to take part in the group stage of the competition. Two teams from England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France alongside others automatically qualify for the group stage of the 2022-23 Europa League.
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, and only 10 teams enter the Europa League group stage, where they are united with the teams qualified from their national leagues directly, the six losing teams from the UCL qualification knockouts and the four losing teams from the Round 3 of the UCL qualifiers.
The group stage of the UEFA Europa League sees a formation of eight groups, four teams in each. The best team from each group enters the Round of 16, while the second-placed clubs play the eight third-placed teams knocked out of the Champions League for the Round of 16.
Each stage of the tournament play-offs consist of two legs, home and away: the knockout round play-offs, the Round of 16, the quarter-finals and the semi-finals. Only the final is one match only, set to take place at Puskas Arena in Budapest on 31 May 2023 in the 2022-23 Europa League season.
Takebet Rwanda 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. The play-offs of the Europa League qualification are predicted too, with UEFA Europa League predictions on Takebet Rwanda starting there and spanning to the final match.
Full list of teams participating in the 2022-23 UEFA Europa League group stage:
- Manchester United
- Real Betis
- Real Sociedad
- Union Berlin
- SC Freiburg
- Sturm Graz
- Union Saint-Gilloise
- 10 more teams from the 2022-23 Europa League qualifiers
- 6 more teams dropped out of the 2022-23 UCL qualifiers
The Gunners were absent from European tournaments in the 2021-22 season due to an extremely low finish in the 2020-21 EPL, eighth place only. However, they improved greatly in the 2021-22 Premier League and took fifth place with 69 points, only three points lacking to get ahead of Tottenham on 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 key to Arsenal in attack, being the second most valued player on the team and the best striker. He ranks fourth by chances to take the 2022-23 Golden Boot of the Premier League.
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 surely be key to the club in the 2022-23 UEFA Europa League and in the Premier League.
Other key players of Arsenal apart from Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka:
- Martin Odegaard
- Emile Smith Rowe
- Ben White
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 summer, and the most dissapointing start to the EPL season in years, losing two first league matches under Erik ten Hag. With such a start, the Dutchman is among favourites to be sacked during the season, however the problem lies with the management and the atmosphere in and around the club. In the 2021-22 EPL, Manchester United finished sixth, 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

Betting odds are analysed for UEFA Europa predictions to understand implied probabilities and choose valuable bets.
Europa League has always been a tough football competition as many teams compete for a spot in the finals. Big teams dropping from the Champions League make it even more competitive. Villarreal won the Europa League last season as they were able to hold Manchester United to a 1-1 draw and win 11-10 on penalties in the final. They were able to show 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 were able to defend in numbers 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, the team must be able to play to their strength, while attacking and defending in numbers.
