The top five European football leagues may be done and dusted with already. However, European football is about to come alive this month, with both the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League entering its latter stages.
Paused because of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, games kick off this month, albeit at an unusually frenetic pace. In the Europa League, as many as 20 games will be played, all in the space of one month. It’s the perfect time to be alive, if you want to cash in on the back-to-back Europa League action set to take place.
What’s there to know before you place your bets?
Two Days, Eight Games
Four on the fifth of August and four other games on the sixth of August.
That’s how the Europa League will usher itself in after the almost five-month-long hiatus. Teams from 11 countries will converge in Germany, to conclude the 2019/2020 Europa League season.

At this stage, it’s all about re-starting what wasn’t finished in the form of second leg games, and continuing the journey from where it was stopped – Inter Milan vs. Getafe, Sevilla vs. AS Roma.
First Leg Deficits for Europa League Comebacks?
LASK suffered 5-0 at the hands of Manchester United. Frankfurt conceded three at the hands of Basel while Rangers could only manage to score one of the four goals in their home game against Bayer Leverkusen.
Those are the three teams that will be looking to pull off a comeback when action resumes this week. Wolfsburg and FC Copenhagen are also in the same comeback boat after losing to Shakhtar and FC Copenhagen respectively.

For Wolves and Olympiacos, the first leg Europa League clash ended in a draw. This is an advantage for Wolves (being the away side), but there’s still a lot to play for.
Only 90 Minutes
Regardless of what you do, do it right, because there won’t be a second chance.
No, that’s not a quote attributed to anyone. It’s the mantra all teams still involved in the Europa League will live by once the competition kicks off.
Well, the reason is not far-fetched.

What used to be a two-legged competition has now become a 90-minute affair – well, plus all the additional time that might come from water-breaks, injuries suffered, and all.
There’ll be no second chances. There’ll be no home/away advantages.
The knockout style of the latter stages of the Europa League competition just got more interesting. And it’ll be fun to see how the teams adjust accordingly, for the love of the game and the hunger of Europa League success.
