2012 Europa League Final Betting Tips and Preview


The Europa League Final is set to kick off today in Bucharest and it's a rather intriguing match-up between Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid. Bilbao will be looking for their first victor in a European final and there is plenty of action and excitement ahead in this one. Some high-quality odds are available on this contest and it's going to be a very interesting one – especially because things seem to be so close on paper.


Atletico Madrid are no strangers to the big stage and they're going into this contest as the distinct betting favourites. You'll find them floating at a 7/5 price tag for the 90 minutes victory with most major bookmakers.

Bilbao are certainly in the mix and you'll find them hovering around 19/10 while the draw pays out at 23/10.

Anybody looking for the outright market will find a much closer affair in the cards with Madrid priced out at an odds-on listing of 5/6 while Bilbao trades at even money.

Atletico have the advantage of experience having won this fixture back in 2010 while the closest that Athletic Bilbao have come to European glory was making it to the final of the old UEFA Cup back in 1977.

Most will remember Bilbao for being the side that knocked Manchester United out of the Europa League earlier this season during the round of 16.

Madrid will really have their eye on next year's Champions League as their finishing position in La Liga seems to be enough to get them to Europe's Premier continental competition.

Radamel Falcao Garcia is the betting favourite to grab a goal at any point in this match with a 6/4 price while Fernando Llorente can be backed at 13/8.
