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 Robert Lewandwoski donning a FC Barcelona jersey after nearly a decade we have seen him representing and even winning this trophy for Bayern Munich. On the other side the Germans got a new star stricker in Sadio Mane from Liverpool FC. And speaking of star strickers, of course we won’t forget about Erling Haaland, Manchester Citys hope to finally bring the trophy home.

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 PREDICTIONS FOR THE UPCOMING GAMES:

Next tips are available 7 days ahead of the gameday!

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 2022/23

Coming into the new season, Melbet have England’s Manchester City as the outright favorites at odds of 3.56. This is not a surprise though as they were runners up in 2020/21, were in the semifinal last year and are one of the big favourites every new campaign. The Citizens shouldn’t have much problems to advance in their group with Sevilla FC, Borussia Dortmund and FC Kobenhavn.

Right behind them is the French machine Paris Saint-Germain at odds of 6.00, despite their disappointing failure last season in the Round of Sixteen against the eventual UCL winner Real Madrid. But PSG still have huge fire power with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Completing the top three is 2019 winners Liverpool FC at odds of 7.00. The Reds were in the final last year again but just fell short against Real Madrid. It will be interesting to see how Liverpool performs in this campaign without Sadio Mane, who left the club in the summer.
