Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has tipped “Juventus or Napoli” to win the Europa League.
The two Italian teams entered the tournament after going out of the Champions League, in Napoli’s case only on goal difference when finishing level with Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund on 12 points.
“Every year in Geneva we discuss this double possibility that the teams who fail in the Champions League automatically become favourites for the Europa League,” Wenger told Eurosport.
“I think that is the case for Juventus, who seem the best constructed side and I don’t think they’ll have problems tomorrow against Trabzonspor.
“The same is true for Napoli, who begin as favourites against Swansea and for the competition in general.”
The Bianconeri have an extra reason to be favourites, as the Final will be played at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.
