Europa League 2019-20 Teams that Progress to the Group Stage Without Qualification
The Europa League is one of the toughest competitions to win, but due to the UEFA Ranking Coefficients, some teams will have an easier path to the group stages than others. While teams from Scotland, Sweden and Norway have to earn their place in the group stages through the Europa League 2019/20 qualifying rounds; others will enter the competition directly at the group stages.
Teams that Progress to Europa League 2019/20
Where the team enters the competition will vary depending on how the country performs in the rankings, as well as the club’s performance in the previous season. Teams that enter the competition as the group stages include those that have won the domestic cup in the top 12 ranked countries, as well as the team that finished fourth in the previous Ligue 1 season and the teams that finished fifth in England, Spain, Germany and Italy.
The teams that head the betting with 22BET for the outright winners of the Europa League are made up of the teams that enter the competition directly at the group stages. Let’s see some of those that will enter the competition at that stage.
The Spanish side enjoyed an excellent season last campaign by finishing sixth in La Liga, and they come into the competition with the highest rating of all club sides at this point. Their rating is so high due to their performances in this competition under the management of Unai Emery as they won the Europa League three times between 2013 and 2016. Furthermore, they won the UEFA Cup in 2006 and 2007. They will be among the top seeds for the competition, meaning they will get an easier route to the knockout rounds.
Last season’s beaten finalists will again be in the Europa League after failing to achieve a top-four finish in the Premier League under ex-Sevilla manager Unai Emery. The Gunners could use the competition as a route into the Champions League; with the winners of the tournament given a space in the following season’s premier European competition. Arsenal will likely begin the tournament as the second favorites and judging from last season they will be serious contenders again in 2019-20.
For only the third time in the Europa League era, the Red Devils will begin the European season in the Europa League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen to use this competition as a way to deliver a first trophy under his management. United boast a fairly high rating with UEFA; as they won this competition in 2017 under Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils will begin the competition as the favorites to win the entire tournament with 22Bet.
The fourth side that is leading the betting is AS Roma. The Italian giants have proven European pedigree after reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2017-18 after beating Barcelona 3-0 in the second leg of their quarterfinal clash. They finished the Serie A season strongly under Claudio Ranieri to book their spot in the competition this season. They will also have a good chance of competing judging by their previous record in Europe.
