Ranking the Europa League Quarter-Finals Contenders With Sky Bet Odds

1st: Manchester United @ 15/8

Manchester United are the favourites to win the Europa League and it is well and truly justified. The Red Devils have been one of Europe's most in-form sides in 2020, so much so, that only Real Madrid and Bayern Munich boast a better points-per-game ratio than them, as United haven't lost in the league since their 2-0 defeat to Burnley.

This run of form is the greatest since Sir Alex Ferguson called it a day seven seasons ago, and there's no surprise it coincides with the signing of Bruno Fernandes. The midfielder has been monumental at Old Trafford and the entire team has transformed into that of a Champions League one, rather than a Europa League hopeful.

At 15/8, betting on United to win the Europa League makes a lot of sense, especially how they have the 66/1 underdogs Copenhagen up next in the quarter-finals. After this, the club face either Sevilla or Wolverhampton Wanderers, depending on who advances out of that clash between the two.

If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men can continue their fabulous form shown this year, there's no reason United can't win Europa League and surely the Norwegian will want to bag a trophy, after such a dismal FA Cup semi-finals display against Chelsea.

2nd: Inter Milan @10/3

Inter Milan were in the Champions League at the start of the season and a second-place finish in Serie A recently, where they finished just a point behind Juventus, shows vast improvement under Antonio Conte.

The Italian is a born winner and his record speaks for itself, winning various titles in both England and his homeland. Now, with the addition of Romelu Lukaku and an improved Alexis Sanchez, alongside the likes of Lautaro Martinez, the club are a threat towards anyone.

Inter's biggest obstacle will be United, no doubt. Not much separates the two sides right now across the pitch, as both picked up form in 2020 to finish their domestic seasons off with a bang. However, with Lukaku up top, anything is possible after he netted his 28th goal of the season against Getafe.

As mentioned, United are the favourites, but there is just as much as an argument for Inter to win the title instead. After all, both the Milan side and the Red Devils are Champions League-bound next season regardless, and they are, unquestionably, too good for this level.

SEVILLA @ 11/2

3rd: Sevilla @11/2

Out of all the ties that took place in the round of 16, there is little doubt that Sevilla's performance over Roma was the best. The Spanish outfit completely outclassed the away side from the first whistle to the last, at this came at a time when Paulo Fonseca's men were one of the most in-form sides in Italy, beating Juventus 3-1 on the final day.

Sevilla triumphed 2-0 at home that night, where it could have been plenty more as they had 16 shots on route to goals from Sergio Reguilon and Youssef En-Nesyri. Combine this with their fantastic 11-game unbeaten run since the restart and Sevilla are statistically the most in-form team left in the competition.

Victories over Valencia and Athletic Bilbao, plus a draw with Barcelona pushed Los Palanganas to a fourth-place finish in La Liga, where Champions League football was secured for next season. Indeed, the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and perhaps Wolves have more star quality than Sevilla on the pitch, but former Spain boss, Julen Lopetegui, has got them playing better than most.

Similar to United and Inter, perhaps Sevilla re just too good for this level, and after all, they won this trophy an incredible five times from 2006-2016. At 11/2, this is the outside bet to keep an eye on.

4th: Wolves @ 7/1

Wolves will be without European football for next season unless they win the Europa League itself, following Arsenal's victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final. This now means we won't see Nuno Espirito Santo's men in the Europa League group stages in 2020/21, but they will secure Champions League football if they win this year's competition.

Throughout the season, Wolves have looked right at home in Europe and it seems to be the perfect platform for Santo and his excellent team to thrive and grow. A 1-0 win over Olympiakos recently earned them a spot in quarter-finals against Sevilla, where they will no doubt face their biggest test of the season.

Wolves did manage to get past Espanyol 6-3 on aggregate, which will give them hope against another Spanish side, come next week. However, considering Espanyol finished rock bottom and 45 points behind Sevilla in La Liga, it will be a different test entirely.

What would have initially given the Molineux side hope in such fixtures is the fact the tie would have been over two legs. Wolves' form at home this season has been brilliant and 4-0 victories over both Besiktas and Espanyol at Molineux would have certainly fueled them up entirely different to now.

However, with the games set to be played in one-off matches in Germany, Wolves' hopes of winning the Europa League have taken a huge hit and they are now priced at 7/1.

SHAKHTAR DONESTSK @ 12/1

5th: Bayer Leverkusen @ 13/2

You would be completely inclined to disagree with Bayer Leverkusen being fifth on the list, but based off their end to the Bundesliga season and their lacklustre display against Rangers, we'd argue otherwise.

Leverkusen were still in a title race by a tiny margin ahead of the restart, but within just a few games, any hope of such a miraculous triumph was quickly diminished. It then quickly became a matter of maintaining a Champions League spot for Peter Bosz men, which then turned into surviving within a Europa League place, which they eventually did.

Leverkusen fielded a strong XI against Rangers, to which they only won by the narrowest of margins in a 1-0 win. It was a comfortable victory, however, and the Glasgow side were never going to overturn the 3-1 aggregate set prior to the game, in truth.

Although, with Inter up next, this could be the end of the line for Kai Havertz and co. The club's odds are 13/2 to win the Europa League, which is higher than Wolves' 7/1, but the Premier League side clearly have an easier draw.
