Europa League final: Date, history, teams & betting odds

There are 16 teams still left in the 2022/23 Europa League and they will all be hoping to be involved in the final in Hungary at the end of May.

Europe’s second-tier club competition has already seen some high-profile teams crash out with Barcelona, Ajax and PSV Eindhoven being knocked out last month.

The make-up of the quarter-finals is still in doubt after the first legs of the round of 16 ties although Manchester United will be confident of progressing after beating Real Betis 4-1 at Old Trafford.

However, the likes of Juventus, Arsenal and Roma are not guaranteed a spot in the last eight after tight first legs.
