Europa League semi-final betting tips for all games
Which teams buy the ticket for the final in Cologne?
As part of the first final tournament in the 49-year history of the competition, which was called the UEFA Cup until 2009, four teams are leftover. All four teams come from four different nations so that the name “Europa League” does it justice again this year. A year ago there was finally a London city derby in the final between Chelsea and Arsenal.
Meanwhile, it is also certain that all four teams remaining in the competition, who are now fighting for the two tickets for the grand finale on August 21, 2020, in Cologne, are only concerned with prestige. Sevilla, Manchester United, Inter Milan, and Shakhtar Donetsk: They are all already safely qualified for the group stage of the 2020/21 Champions League.
It is already clear that Stade Rennes will become one of the big winners of the Europa League, even though the French failed in the group stage with only four points as the group bottom. But because the overall winner of the Europa League is already qualified for the Champions League via his national league, Rennes moves into the group stage of the premier class as third in Ligue 1 and thus bypasses the playoffs.
The question remains, which team will be able to fish for the prestigious title in the second most important European competition for club teams? It is also interesting that all four remaining teams are former overall winners. Donetsk and Manchester United each won the trophy once. Inter have triumphed three times, while Sevilla is even the record winner of this competition with five Europa League titles.
This underlines the enormous quality that is present in this final tournament, in which the lack of a second leg also contributes to the high entertainment value. In the quarter-finals, an outsider in the form of FC Copenhagen was able to force Manchester United into extra time.
Against this background, we want to find appropriate betting tips in the run-up to the Europa League semifinals, in which a lot of value can be found. Accordingly, in this article, we analyze both encounters in which the two participants in the final will be sought on August 16 and 17. For the Europa League semifinals, we not only provide a prediction and specific betting tips but also the best Europa League semifinals betting odds.

Both Sevilla and Manchester United have only recently used the Europa League to qualify for the Champions League with overall wins in this competition. In the current season, however, they have already overcome this often very high hurdle over the national league operation in the past decade.
Thus, the entry into the final is a pure question of prestige for both teams, in which, of course, the proud Andalusians, in particular, want to assert themselves in their parade competition. With title number six in Europe’s second most important competition for club teams, the kickers from Nervión could finally secure a monument in the history books.
However, in this Europa League semifinals, the betting odds turn towards the Red Devils, which comes as a bit of a surprise. After all, United had to tremble for a long time in the quarter-finals and didn’t work against the strong FC Copenhagen like the huge odds favorite that the bookies drew in the run-up to the game.
Sevilla with the slightly more convincing performance
Nonetheless, their narrow 1-0 win after extra time, when top scorer Bruno Fernandes (seven goals in the current competition; five of them for Sporting Lisbon) scored a penalty, was just as deserved as the Andalusians’ similarly narrow 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
In the end, however, Julen Lopetegui’s team convinced us a little more, which is why we favor the prediction of the progression of the Nerviónenses in the first Europa League semifinals. We secure the bet as a “Draw No Bet” to remove any further over time, in which anything could happen.

Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk Free Betting Tips Provided by CoreBet Tipsters

How Inter Milan prevailed not only against Getafe CF but also against Bayer Leverkusen makes the Nerazzurri a hot title contender. After all, Antonio Conte’s team has been unbeaten for ten competitive games in a row and could easily have won 3: 1 or 4: 1 against the Bundesliga club in the quarter-finals.
Now, however, “La Beneamata” is facing an extremely unpleasant opponent, as Shakhtar Donetsk has impressively underlined his current very strong form with clear victories over Wolfsburg (3: 0) and Basel (4: 1) and above all one reveals a very special plus point: an impressive physique.
After all, the Ukrainian champions, incidentally the only national champions among the four semi-finalists, always scored late goals and, despite temperatures of over 30 degrees Celsius, still had enough air when the opponent was flat.
Against this background, betting tips for a high-scoring encounter make a lot of sense in this Europa League semi-final, especially since the Nerazzurri have already shown against Getafe and Leverkusen that they can switch their defensive five-man chain at lightning speed and get in front of the opposing goal with just a few passes.
The individual class speaks for the Nerazzurri
In the end, the individual class around Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martínez, Christian Eriksen, or Alexis Sánchez should be a bit too high for Schachtjor to make it into the final again eleven years after winning the title in this competition.
Accordingly, in this Europa League semi-final, we consider the odds for bets on the victory of Inter Milan in regular time to be the most promising, especially since the pressure to win something in the really strong but untitled 2019/20 season, maybe in Lombardy is also greatest.
