Champions League Betting Tips

Football fans across the world follow the Champions League religiously as it is easily the best club football competition in the world. It features the crème de la crème from all of Europe’s top tier leagues: Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1, as well as others as determined from time to time by UEFA co-efficiency ratings. Chelsea as the defending champions have their work cut out with the likes of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, PSG, Manchester City and Manchester United all throwing their hats in the ring in a bid to dislodge them.

There were significant transfers last summer, and it is therefore a bit awkward to see Lionel Messi donning a PSG jersey after nearly two decades we have seen him representing and even winning this trophy for Barcelona. Mr Champions League himself, Cristiano Ronaldo also returned back to Old Trafford like the prodigal’s son so he too will be donning Man United colours this season.

Our betting experts here at Livetipsportal are all set to cover this tournament from the beginning to the end. So if at all you have been looking for Champions League betting tips, look no more. We’ve got you covered!

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FORMAT

The current format has the Champions League beginning in late June with a preliminary round, three qualifying rounds and a play-off round, all played over two legs. The six teams that remain standing from these rounds enter the group stage, joining 26 teams that had qualified in advance.

The 32 teams are then drawn into eight groups of four teams and play each other in a double round-robin system. The eight group winners and eight runners-up proceed to the knockout phase that goes all the way to the final match in late May or early June. The eventual winner of the Champions League qualifies for the following year’s Champions League, and participates in the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE OUTRIGHT WINNER ODDS

Coming into the knockout stage, Melbet have England’s Manchester City as the outright favorites at odds of 3.70. This is not a surprise though as they were runners up last year and had a fairly easy run in the group with four wins and a couple of losses in their six group games, scoring a total of 18 goals, only bettered by Bayern and Ajax.

Right behind them is the German machine Bayern Munich at odds of 4.70. They wiped the floor with their Group E opponents finishing with a 100% record after winning all 6 of their group games.

Completing the top three is 2019 winners Liverpool at odds of 6.00. The Reds also had perfect record in Group B which was quite impressive considering the other group members were Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and FC Porto.
