Manchester United vs AC Milan would have been the dreamed Europa League grand finale, but the “Red Devils” eliminated the “Rossoneri” in the Round of 16, and now they already have a foot on the Semifinals. AS Roma looks like their toughest rival towards the title.
Let’s take a look at the UEFA Europa League Quarterfinals Odds while making some predictions.
UEFA Europa League Betting Odds
Manchester United vs Granada (Thursday, April 15)
|Manchester United||-1 -135||-225||2½||2|
Manchester United won the first leg 2-0 thanks to Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes’s goals. The “Red Devils” haven’t lost since joining the UEFA Europa League, and they have conceded only one goal in five games.
“It was a massive win. We knew it was going to be hard. We had to play our football, which is where the first goal came from. Obviously, the second goal gives us a good platform. We need to go into the next game with the same attitude,” said midfielder Dan James.
Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, and Scott McTominay are all suspended, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has proven to be really good when it comes to rotating the team.
What an incredible journey has been for Granada, but it seems the journey ends here. They haven’t been able to win on the road, first, they lost to Napoli 2-1 in the Round of 32, and more recently they lost to Molde FK in the Round of 16.
Domingos Duarte and Yan Brice are suspended. Duarte has been playing from the start; German Sanchez Barahona should take his place in the starting lineup.
Overall, Manchester United has lost only two of their last 28 Europa League matches, and they also dominate the current Odds to win the Europa League.
Pick: Manchester United -225
Pick: Over 2½ goals (-125)
Final Score Prediction: Manchester United 2 – Granada 1
Slavia Praha vs Arsenal (Thursday, April 15)
|Slavia Praha||+½ Ev||+365||2½||1|
Slavia Praha found gold in London after drawing 1-1 in the quarter-finals first leg against Arsenal. Now, they could draw 0-0 at home and still advance to the Semifinals thanks to the away goal rule.
They’re unbeaten in their last 30 home games since November 2019. They’ve won 23 of those matches, including 10 of the last 12.
Arsenal really needs this, because they’re having serious trouble getting into the English Premier League top five, winning this competition is the only way for them to compete internationally next season.
The “Gunners” have gone 14 straight matches in all competitions without keeping a clean sheet, but they lead the competition scoring chart with 28 goals.
Pick: Draw +275
Pick: Over 2½ goals (-110)
Final Score Prediction: Slavia Praha 2 – Arsenal 2
Villarreal vs Dinamo Zagreb (Thursday, April 15)
|Dinamo Zagreb||+1 -110||+650||2½||½|
Huge 1-0 road victory for Villarreal in the first leg. The Spanish side won thanks to a goal from Gerard Moreno, who’s one of the tournament’s top scorers with five goals.
Villarreal has a perfect record, five out of five, of advancing when they have won the first leg of a UEFA Cup or UEFA Europa League series on the road.
For Dinamo Zagreb, that was their third home defeat of the season in 22 games. They won 17 of those 22 games, what a bad time to start losing again, right?
Villarreal leads the all-time series against Dinamo Zagreb 2-0-1, and they’ve scored four goals and allowed just two.
Pick: Draw +325
Pick: Under 2½ goals (-130)
Final Score Prediction: Villarreal 1 – Dinamo Zagreb 1
AS Roma vs Ajax (Thursday, April 15)
|AS Roma||Pk Ev||+180||3||1½|
AS Roma defeated Ajax 1-2 on the road in the first leg, meaning they could lose 1-0 on Thursday and still advance to the Semifinals.
The Italian side has won all five matches in this season’s knockout stage, and Lorenzo Pellegrini and Roger Ibanez seem to have awakened just in time for a title push! And don’t forget about Borja Mayoral, one of the tournament’s top scorers with seven goals.
Due to suspension, Bruno Peres is out for AS Roma and Devyne Rensch is out for Ajax.
This could be the sports betting upset you’re looking for, but keep in mind that AS Roma has scored 25 goals, third best regarding this Europa League’s season, and the Italians are well known for their effective defensive strategies, especially when playing at home.
Pick: AS Roma to win +185
Pick: Under 3 goals (+105)
