Conference League Group Stage Draw – Fixtures, Latest Betting And More

By Ian John
October 23, 2023

The final part of our three-part series this week reviewing the main draws for the three UEFA competitions this season focuses on the Europa Conference League.

Conference League 2023/24

This new competition has actually proven to be a huge success. Not only has it given some of the lesser lights in Europe a chance to shine in a big competition, but it has also improved the quality of the Europa League markedly too.

The fact it now mirrors the format of the Europa League and closely that of the Champions League also helps keep the fixtures tidy as we progress through the season.

Last season, West Ham defeated Fiorentina in the final to claim their first European trophy for many years and this year, it is Aston Villa who will represent England in the Europa Conference League, with West Ham earning a spot in the Europa League by virtue of their victory.

Bet365 Sport is already offering odds on all the 32 teams in the Group Stage to win the Conference League and we have previewed these odds as well as each of the groups below.

  • Maccabi Tel-Aviv – 150/1
  • Zorya Luhansk – 250/1

Group Preview And Tips

An interesting group. Gent should win the group, but each of their opponents will offer a challenge away from home. Who finishes second is more of a question and I think it could be the Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv that make it through.

Group C

  • Astana
  • Ballkani
  • Dinamo Zagreb
  • Viktoria Plzen

Fixtures

21st September

  • 8.00pm – Dinamo Zagreb v Astana

Latest Odds To Win Conference League

  • Astana – 100/1
  • Ballkani – 500/1
  • Dinamo Zagreb – 40/1
  • Viktoria Plzen – 40/1

Group Preview And Tips

Astana is a tricky place to visit for any European team but I think both Zagreb and Plzen will have more than enough quality to qualify from this Conference League group, probably with the Czech outfit Viktoria Plzen finishing in top spot. Zagreb should join them in the Conference League knockout phase.

Group D

  • Besiktas
  • Bodo Glimt
  • Club Brugge
  • Lugano

Fixtures

21st September

  • 8.00pm – Lugano v Bodo Glimt
  • 8.00pm – Club Brugge v Besiktas

  • 8.00pm – Club Brugge v Lugano

30th November

  • 5.45pm – Besiktas v Club Brugge
  • 5.45pm – Bodo Glimt v Lugano

14th December

  • 8.00pm – Club Brugge v Bodo Glimt
  • 8.00pm – Lugano v Besiktas

Latest Odds To Win Conference League

  • Besiktas – 25/1
  • Bodo Glimt – 150/1
  • Club Brugge – 20/1
  • Lugano – 150/1

Group Preview And Tips

Besiktas and Club Brugge stand out in Group D as the teams most likely to qualify for the Conference League knockout phase, but you can’t rule out Bodo Glimt. The Norwegian side have upset some big teams in past years and could provide a shock here if either Besiktas or Brugge slip up. That said, I don’t think either will and both should reach the Conference League knockout stage.

Group E

  • AZ Alkmaar
  • Aston Villa
  • Legia Warzaw
  • Zrjinski

Fixtures

21st September

  • 5.45pm – Legia Warzaw v Aston Villa
  • 5.45pm – Zrinjski v AZ Alkmaar

  • 8.00pm – Aston Villa v Legia Warzaw

14th December

  • 5.45pm – Legia Warzaw v AZ Alkmaar
  • 5.45pm – Zrinjski v Aston Villa

Latest Odds To Win Conference League

  • AZ Alkmaar – 14/1
  • Aston Villa – 4/1 fav
  • Legia Warzaw – 150/1
  • Zrjinski – 500/1

Group Preview And Tips

There is a lot more quality in Group E than previous Conference League groups with AZ Alkmaar and Aston Villa being the dominant forces. That said Zrinjski will be a tough away game in Serbia for all teams in this group and Legia Warzaw are no pushovers either. It won’t be straightforward but I think AZ and Villa do make it through to the Conference League knockout phase.

Group F

  • Cukaricki
  • Ferencvaros
  • Fiorentina
  • Genk

Fixtures

21st September

  • 5.45pm – Ferencvaros v Cukaricki
  • 5.45pm – Genk v Fiorentina

5th October

  • 8.00pm – Cukaricki v Genk
  • 8.00pm – Fiorentina v Ferencvaros

26th October

  • 8.00pm – Fiorentina v Cukaricki
  • 8.00pm – Genk v Ferencvaros

9th November

  • 5.45pm – Ferencvaros v Genk
  • 5.45pm – Cukaricki v Fiorentina

30th November

  • 8.00pm – Cukaricki v Ferencvaros
  • 8.00pm – Fiorentina v Genk

14th December

  • 5.45pm – Genk v Cukaricki
  • 5.45pm – Ferencvaros v Fiorentina

Latest Odds To Win Conference League

  • Cukaricki – 250/1
  • Ferencvaros – 100/1
  • Fiorentina – 7/1
  • Genk – 20/1

Group Preview And Tips

Group F in the Conference League should be won by Fiorentina, last year’s losing finalists in this competition. Genk should also be strong showers in this group but Ferencvaros have looked dangerous in Europe the last few years and I think the Hungarians could surprise the Belgian side here and finish second behind Fiorentina.

Group G

  • Aberdeen
  • Eintracht Frankfurt
  • HJK
  • PAOK Salonika

Fixtures

21st September

  • 5.45pm – Eintracht Frankfurt v Aberdeen
  • 5.45pm – HJK v PAOK Salonika

5th October

  • 8.00pm – Aberdeen. V HJK

  • 8.00pm – Eintracht Frankfurt – PAOK

14th December

  • 5.45pm – Aberdeen v Eintracht Frankfurt
  • 5.45pm – PAOK v HJK

Latest Odds To Win Conference League

  • Aberdeen – 150/1
  • Eintracht Frankfurt – 10/1
  • HJK – 250/1
  • PAOK Salonika – 40/1

Group Preview And Tips

Eintracht Frankfurt will win this Conference League group, I have no doubts about that and they may win all six games. The question for me is who finishes second. Aberdeen are probably the better of the other two teams, but it is a coin toss between all three. Despite this, I am going for Aberdeen to surprise everyone and claim the second spot in the group.

  • 5.45pm – Fenerbahce v Spartak Trnava

Latest Odds To Win Conference League

  • Fenerbahce – 25/1
  • Ludogoretz Razgrad – 40/1
  • Nordsjaelland – 100/1
  • Spartak Trnava – 250/1

Group Preview And Tips

Not the most appealing of groups in terms of big names but Turkish side Fenerbahce should win this Conference League group, and Ludogorets should finish second. Nordsjaelland may push them both hard here, but I stil expect the two favourites to progress.
