2021 Europa League final tips – United set to claim silverware

We’re down to the final two teams in the 2020/21 Europa League, with Manchester United having exited the Champions League at the group stage before navigating their way through the other UEFA club competition and they’ve been rarely troubled while overcoming the likes of Athletic Bilbao, Granada and Roma.

Now the Red Devils clash with another Spanish opponent in the form of Villarreal who managed to find a way past Arsenal in the semi-finals and they are managed by Unai Emery who won this competition on three successive occasions with Sevilla and also guided the Gunners to a final.

Who Are Europa League Final Betting Favourites?

The bookies are certainly not prepared to take on Manchester United who have proven to be the second best team in the English Premier League this season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side showing a never-say-die spirit when it has come to winning from losing positions on several occasions this term.

At the time of writing, the best football betting odds about the Red Devils is 4/5 when it comes to them winning in ninety minutes. As far as lifting the trophy in Gdansk is concerned, you are looking at 2/5 that Manchester United claim this trophy as they did during the 2016/17 season under Jose Mourinho.

It’s easy to see why they are favourites after a fairly strong campaign and United have a plethora of attacking options which saw them score a sum total of eight goals against Roma in two semi-final matches, with Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes especially dangerous in attack.

Can Unai Emery Win Europa League for the Fourth Time?

While Emery amazingly steered Sevilla to a consecutive hat-trick of Europa League titles, it’s arguable whether he has the same sort of quality within the ranks when it comes to guiding Villarreal to a European success, although the Spaniard will know that anything can happen in one match.

The way in which his players stuck manfully to their task when drawing 0-0 at the Emirates Stadium to overcome Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate suggests that Emery has the potential to execute a perfect game plan as far as this clash is concerned, with the Yellow Submarine trading at betting odds of 4/1 for those who think there could be some value in the price.

While Villarreal are sitting sixth in the La Liga standings, there has been everything to like about the way they have navigated past Dinamo Zagreb and Dynamo Kiev to reach the business end of the tournament and they will certainly be determined to finish the job in this clash.

What Are the Best 2021 Europa League Final Bets?

Villarreal will know the damage that Manchester United can cause and perhaps this will lead to a cagey encounter, with the draw a potentially attractive option when it comes to the Full-Time Result betting odds. If you compare the Europa League final betting odds, then you can find there is 27/10 about this clash ending all square which could lead to extra-time and penalties.

If Manchester United do edge the encounter, perhaps they will be able to run a tight ship, with Under 2.5 Goals trading at betting odds of 4/5 and it’s certainly easy to see this being a low-scoring clash considering what’s at stake.

Indeed, a Red Devils win to nil could be a sensible way to proceed and one football betting site is trading at 2/1 about United winning the final without conceding, with Solskjaer wanting no slip-ups at the back although the English side are prone to letting in the odd goal.

Therefore, if you want to back Manchester United to win the Europa League final with both sides finding the net, then you can get 3/1 about this happening and the more adventurous punters could even get involved in the possibility of the favourites coming from behind to win.
