Biggest Wins in Europa League History


Biggest Wins in Europa League History

With its inception in 1971, the UEFA Cup replaced the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and was a third-tier competition up until 1999. Sevilla, serial winners of this competition with seven titles, also hold the biggest UEFA Cup final scoreline win since 1997-98, with a convincing 4-0 victory over Middlesbrough in 2006.

For the 2009-10 season, it rebranded as the UEFA Europa League and has been kept the same ever since. Chelsea dismantled Arsenal 4-1 during the 2018/19 final in Baku, Azerbaijan and another notable result was Atletico Madrid’s 3-0 win over Marseille in what are some of the biggest victories. This article will go into detail about some of the Europa League’s biggest marginal victories since this format came to fruition.

Vardar 0-6 Real Sociedad (2017)

In a completely dominant display in the group stages, the La Liga outfit completely dismantled the Macedonian side on their own patch, in what has been the biggest away marginal victory since the reform of the Europa League.

In a match which Real Sociedad had 32 shots, Willan Jose bagged four goals in a glittering display, with an early goal and late strike condemning Vardar to an unwanted defeat on home soil.

Imanol Alguacils’ side only managed to make it out of the group stages to the round of 32 stage despite this impressive result. This is a club which is ever-increasing as they matched multiple clubs in registering the highest winning margins in Europa League history.

The Macedonian outfit had failed to register a point at this stage, and what was a humbling defeat at home, will feel that they achieved something amazing as they managed to make the group stages of the competition for the first time in their history.

Arsenal 6-0 BATE (2017)

Arsenal managed to bang six goals or more in for the sixth time as they tore apart BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium in 2017 in what was Arsene Wenger’s last European tournament as the helm.

It was a comprehensive display by the Gunners who got the ball running courtesy of former French international Mathieu Debuchy, netting his first goal for the club in a European competition. Arsenal were halfway to completing the rout as Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere both added goals before the interval.

Truth be told, the margin of victory could have been far greater with Arsenal registering 2 shots on goal despite the 11 changes made to the side from the previous league match.

The Gunners managed to make the semi-finals of the competition this time around, losing 2-1 on aggregate to Atletico Madrid, with the 1-0 defeat away from home seeing them fall just before the final.

Sevilla 6-0 Akhisar Belediyespor (2018)

Spanish serial winners Sevilla had an emphatic Europa League victory over Turkish side Akhisar Belediyespor in a 6-0 thrashing, the single biggest victory for the Spanish side in the competition they’ve won on seven occasions.

The match looked like a thumping on paper, but Sevilla registered 14 shots on goal to Akhisars’ nine attempts. What is unique about this game is there was six different goal scorers, one of which was an own goal by Milan Lukac as the goals were spread across the game rather than a flurry all at once.

Akhisar were facing the Spanish outfit for the first time in the club’s history, and it was the first appearance at the Europa League proper after beating Fenerbahce 3-2 in the 2018 Turkish Cup final. It was a shock result as they finished nine places and 30 points behind the Turkish giants.

On this occasion, Sevilla couldn’t win the Europa League and fell at the round of 16 stage to Slavia Praha in two entertaining ties.

Feyenoord 6-0 Sturm Graz (2022)

Yet another 6-0 scoreline occurred in last season’s Europa League group stage match when Feyenoord condemned Sturm Graz to a 6-0 thrashing. The Dutch side ran riot with three goals in the last 15 minutes of the first half which came after an eighth-minute opener to have an unassailable 4-0 lead at the break.

This was Sturm Graz’s biggest-ever biggest-ever defeat as a whole both domestically and across European competitions. It was always going to be an uphill battle as Feyenoord had a formidable record at home, winning eight of their last nine at in European competitions.

Feyenoord did receive a humbling in the quarterfinals as they got thumped 4-1 by Roma after leading the first leg 1-0. Sturm Graz fell at the group stages despite being unbeaten at home, winning two out of three including against Feyenoord, without conceding a goal.

Slavia Praha 6-0 Sheriff Tiraspol (2023)

The most recent and equally brutal drubbing in recent Europa League history was the 6-0 victory for Slavia Praha over Sheriff Tiraspol.

The game started in frantic fashion, with Slavia racing into a two-goal lead inside six minutes, which set the tone for this encounter. The sixth and final goal came 19 minutes from time, so Slavia will feel it was an opportunity missed to become stand-alone all-time biggest victors in the competition.

Sheriff haven’t ever gone past the group stages, and they haven’t started this campaign off in the best fashion. However, in their last appearance in the Champions League, they surprisingly beat Real Madrid 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu in what was one of the biggest shocks in European football history.

The Moldovan side will not want to a repeat of this scoreline as they look to get a victory in the final two games despite being unable to progress to the knockout stages.
