Barcelona have been eased out to 9.0 in bwin’s Europa League winner odds after being drawn to face Napoli in the knockout round play-offs.
The Catalan giants have dropped down into this competition for the first time after only finishing third in their Champions League group.
It is also the first time since 2003-04 that beleaguered Barca will not feature in the latter stages of Europe’s elite club tournament.
However, Napoli will be no pushovers, with the Serie A side quoted at 17.0 to lift this trophy after beating Leicester to qualify from their pool as runners-up.
The teams successful in these two-legged ties will join the eight group winners in the last 16.
However, it is other clubs dropping down from the Champions League who dominate the Europa League betting.
Dortmund heading to Glasgow
Bundesliga high-flyers Borussia Dortmund are 7.0 favourites after being paired with Rangers in the play-offs.
Sevilla have been drawn to face Dinamo Zagreb and can be backed at 8.0 to extend their record tally of triumphs to seven.
Los Rojiblancos have the added incentive of knowing that the final will be held at their Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium on May 18.
Neighbours Real Betis are 26.0 to give Spain yet another victory, with La Liga clubs prevailing seven times in the last decade and 11 times in 18 years.
The last Italian outfit to oblige was Parma way back in 1999 and Atalanta are 10.0 to end that drought after drawing Olympiacos.
