North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are currently the bookmakers favourites to win the 2020/21 Europa League.
Arsenal looked to have missed out on European football after finishing eighth in the Premier League table last season. The Gunners endured a miserable 2019/20 campaign that saw former boss Unai Emery sacked last November having overseen their worst start to a season in 30 years.
However, Mikel Arteta has turned things around since taking over at the Emirates Stadium and he led Arsenal to the FA Cup with victory over Chelsea at Wembley which booked their place in the group stages of the Europa League.
Arsenal have been drawn to face Rapid Wien, Dundalk and Molde in the group phase and they should be extremely confident of progressing to the knockout stages of the competition without too much fuss.
The signing of Thomas Partey has further boosted Arteta’s squad as the Ghanaian international is a top class midfielder who will provide a real presence in the middle of the park. Partey’s arrival will boost Arsenal’s profile in Africa with huge numbers from the region now following the Gunners.
They’ll be interested to know that Arsenal are currently favourites with the bookmakers to win the Europa League this season. Any African fans can head to a mpesa online casino to deposit their money and back Arsenal at odds of 7/1. We expect those odds to shorten once the group stages are over so you may want to get your bets placed quickly to secure the most profitable odds.
However, according to the bookmakers, Arsenal’s closest competitors for the trophy will be north London rivals Tottenham as they are also priced at 7/1 to win the Europa League this season. The duo are close competitors in London as the Arsenal underground Station is just a short walk away from Tottenham’s ground and the bookies believe the neighbours will be battling it out for the Europa League this season.
Jose Mourinho has reshaped his squad this summer after bringing in Welsh superstar Gareth Bale on loan from Real Madrid while Sergio Reguilon, Joe Hart, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Matt Doherty have also moved to Spurs.
They now have a well-balanced squad and with Bale joining Hueng-min Son and Harry Kane in attack, Tottenham have the firepower to trouble any team in the world so it’s no surprise to see them among the favourites to win the Europa League.
Leicester City will also represent the Premier League in the competition this year after finishing fifth last season and Brendan Rodgers’ side can be backed at odds of 11/1 to go all the way. Away from England, Italian giants AC Milan are priced at 9/1 while Napoli are 13/1.
