Predicting who will be triumphant in the Europa League at this stage of the season is a pretty hard task. Most of Europe’s domestic leagues are only just getting underway so fans do not really have a good idea of how the season will go.
But picking a winner is even tougher with the Europa League as some of the sides with the biggest chance of winning are still involved in its big brother competition – the Champions League. The first batch of Champions League sides will join at the group stage, with another eight arriving at the Europa League knockout stage. But we can still have a look at the sides involved already for some likely victors.
