Injuries & Suspensions
So having a full list of potential missing players through a Europa League injuries and suspensions list, is a pretty handy tool to have at your disposal. You can find all that you need to find right here on this page as teams step out to duel in the competition. It is always worth a quick scan of just who may be missing from a starting line up because that could potentially influence the outcome of a game.
It can be a really long arduous campaign for sides to get all the way to the final. Some have to work their way through qualifiers, others will be joining the fray after the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. Either way, there is no easy path to success in the Europa League and having an idea of who is going to be lining up in matches is important. Just take a quick look through our Europa League injuries and suspension list and add another string out your betting bow.

It may be regarded as the second tier tournament ran by UEFA behind the Champions League, but that doesn't stop the UEFA Europa League pulling in some fantastic betting opportunities. In the early rounds of the competition, from the group stage really through to the round of 32, there are very often some lopsided mismatches in the tournament. That affords a great opportunity to back some favourites. You will also see a lot of teams that you probably don't know much about there too.

However, when those favourites are missing some influential players in the Europa League, then it could level the playing field a little bit. The Europa League is a competition where managers don't take chances with their top players too often, and that is particularly true of the bigger clubs in the early stages. So if there is someone just working their way back to full fitness from the injury list, then they may not be risked. So this is something important that you could consider. Or maybe you fancy the chance of underdog but they are missing their one top player for a game and that could cancel out your plans.
