The 2019-20 Europa League concluded this month in Germany with Sevilla taking home the crown. The next edition is right around the corner. The 2020-21 Europa League has qualifying through early October ahead of the group stage. Sevilla may not have the chance to defend their crown, meaning we could potentially have a new champion next season. The only way the Spanish side will have a chance to defend it is if they finish in third place in their Champions League group, which means they continue playing in the Europa League round of 32.
