Europa League matchday 1: Miller picks Rapid Wien vs Arsenal, Leicester City vs Zorya Luhansk, and Tottenham vs LASK Linz with 8 plays
For the three English teams starting their UEFA Europa League groups today, there must be confidence that they can make deep runs in this tournament.
Manchester United (2017) and Chelsea (2019) have won the Europa League recently, while Liverpool (2016) and Arsenal (2019) have made finals. United also made a semifinal last season, while Wolves went deep into the knockout rounds as well.
Basically, the tournament is there to be won for the better clubs: Spain (Sevilla, 4, and Atletico Madrid, 3) and England (Chelsea, 2, and Manchester United, 1) have combined to win 10 of the last 11, and every one since Porto in 2011.
Before we know the teams that drop down from the Champions League, the three English sides in the cup are all in the top five odds to win the tournament.
Look for Arsenal, Leicester City, and Tottenham to all win today.
