Europa League power rankings

Europa League

With all the sports that have been flooding back into our lives lately, it’s been sort of easy to overlook the fact that soccer never really left us. We’ll have more soccer in store today as Europa League action resumes with four matches.
To celebrate the return (which you can catch on CBS All Access, by the way), our Roger Gonzalez has power rankings for all 16 teams in the Europa League as of today. Here’s a glimpse at the rankings:
  1. Manchester United: They’re the strongest team, are playing well and have a clear path to the semifinals
  2. Inter Milan: When you have the defense Inter does and the strikers in Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, you have a great shot
  3. Wolverhampton Wanderers: Their attack has been a little inconsistent but they’re a sturdy squad and are capable of dictating play
  4. Roma: They’re a high-scoring team but the defense is going to need to improve if they want to make a deep run
  5. Bayer Leverkusen: They still have Kai Havertz and that’s a great sign, because with him, they can win it

Need a handy guide for Europa League action? I’m here to make life easier for you, friend. This is a very helpful schedule and bracket for the Round of 16, which will get underway today. My friend Roger is smarter than me when it comes to this stuff, so I’ll let him handle the best bets and predictions.
The Red Devils finished third last campaign but their star midfielder believes victory in Cologne could help them compete with the top two

Bruno Fernandes believes winning the Europa League could help push Manchester United on to mount a serious title charge next season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side face Sevilla in the last four of the Europa League on Sunday in the behind closed doors mini tournament being held in Cologne, Germany, with a place in the final on August 21 at stake.

This will be the club’s third semi-final of the campaign following the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, and Fernandes, who arrived from Sporting CP in the January transfer window, thinks going all the way and lifting the trophy – as the club did with Jose Mourinho back in 2017 – would stand them in good stead for mounting a title charge next season.

“I think we need to keep progressing and we need to start the league with the mentality to win. We know we play for a big club with big aspirations, also the players, we have big aspirations and we need to win some trophies,” Fernandes said.

“Of course, the Premier League is one of the trophies we want to win and I think to win the Europa League would be good for the mentality of winning trophies and fighting with the top clubs. For next season, if we can win this, it will be important.”

Solskjaer has crafted a young squad who are looking for their first trophy under the Norwegian, and Fernandes, who has shown himself to be one of the leaders in the group, reiterated how important it is for the team to lift the trophy next week.

“For the coach, it will be important and for the players because I think we’ve done very well until now and I think if we finish with a trophy, it will not be perfect, but it will be a good year for us because Manchester United needs to come back again to win some trophies and fight for the European competitions and also the league,” he explained.

One player who has had a remarkable first season in the senior team is Mason Greenwood. The teenager has made himself undroppable with his performances since football resumed in June and has scored 17 goals in all competitions.

You go ahead and enjoy all that soccer… I’ve got non-stop hockey to get back to.
