The UEFA Europa League or the UEFA cup is one of the most exciting continental competitions. The current 2019/20 season is on hold at the moment but with hope of resuming for completion before September. Pundits continue to anlayse which teams stand the best chance of winning the title this year. This post will look at the two favourites, Inter Milan and Manchester United. Read on.
1. Inter Milan – Odds 9-2
Arguably one of the biggest teams in Europe footballing history, Inter Milan may be a shadow of its former self but the same cannot be said of this season. Entering the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 after being knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona, the team promises to put up a decent fight for the title. With an attach comprising Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez and newest midfield recruit, Ericksen, this team has all it needs to win the title. Manager Antonio Conte has also set up a solid defence line comprising Victor Moses, Ashley Young and Diego Godin. The team is solid at the back and vicious at the front.
2. Manchester United – Odds 9-2
Many bookmakers are giving Manchester United the same odds as Inter Milan in this season’s competition. Cruising to the round of 16 after thrashing Club Brugge in the Round of 32, Manchester United might prove the deadliest competition to Inter Milan’s bid this year. New Year recruits Odion Ighalo and Bruno Fernandes continue to be a revelation to the team that lacked depth in the middle. The injury recoveries of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford when the competition resumes promise to help set this team up for a vicious title bid. It is going to be worth watching how manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will make use of exciting teenager Mason Greenwood in attack as well.
