Champions League Betting

Betting odds for the Champions League

If you want to begin online sports betting then the first thing you need to know are what odds are, what they mean and how they can help you to succeed. The Champions League is one of the top football tournaments in Europe. So, if you’re planning on trying your luck here, you’ll need to know these things. In simple terms, odds are the numbers that tell you how likely it is that an event will occur. Odds can be found in various formats including decimal, fractional and American so pick one that you understand and stick with that. This is because the next part of understanding odds is knowing which odds are good, and which should be avoided. This is especially important when you’re betting on big football events such as the FIFA World Cup. Remember that the higher the odds, the more you’ll get paid out for a win, but it also means that the event is less likely to happen.

History of the Champions League

The UEFA Champions League is the main event for Europe’s top football clubs. It’s played by the top clubs from a number of countries, all of whom have to qualify each year in order to take part. The event is a relatively long-running one, having been established back in 1955. It underwent a small re-brand in 1992 making it the event that most of us know today. Similar to Euro 2020 betting and watching the World Cup live, you will need to understand how the league works in order to make meaningful bets. For instance, the tournament has a round-robin stage where each of the clubs will play all of the others, both home and away. Only one team, usually the strongest club, is allowed to enter from most of the participating countries’ leagues. However, the strongest European leagues can enter up to five teams in the event.

Why is the Champions League a special tournament

The Champions League runs every year, unlike the FIFA World Cup which only takes place every four years.

  • 22 different clubs have won the Champions League
  • Real Madrid has won it 13 times
  • The event operates with a round-robin opener

The Champions League starts at the end of June every year and this is when the preliminary round takes place. This happens at the same time as three qualifying rounds and a play off round, and results in 6 teams qualifying. At this point the league then moves into the group stages where there are already 26 qualified teams ready and waiting. These 32 teams are then split into 8 groups of 4 teams, and the round robin stage begins. It’s here that understanding the odds regarding which teams are likely to win, comes in very handy. It’s important to note that the Champions League is also known as the European Cup, so when you’re looking for betting options online, they may come under this title too. Each year the contest is a thrilling one – 22 clubs have won the event, Real Madrid topping the scoreboard with 13 wins. However, England clubs have won the event more than any other country’s clubs.

Who is hosting the Champions League: Host city and dates

Unlike other tournaments, there is no one host for this event. Instead the event takes place across the whole of Europe, in the countries of the clubs that have all qualified to participate. The round robin segment of the tournament illustrates this as each team gets to play a home game, and an away game against each of their opponents. In this manner, all of the countries, clubs and stadiums play host for a short while. It’s also important to be able to have this round robin segment as the home advantage is a massive one and can really make a difference. When it comes to looking at football tips, you will often find that this home advantage is what pushes one team to be the favourite over the other in a specific game, so make sure you keep an eye on the venue, not just who is playing who.

Champions League: Favourites

Last year the Champions League saw an almighty clash between two of England’s top tier teams – Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs. In the end it was Liverpool who went home victorious. This year they’re looking to make it a double, and could well be on track for that having, remarkably, remained unbeaten in the Premier League thus far (this is England’s top division). Liverpool are comfortable favourites this year to scoop the crown once again. However, Hotspurs are also looking good, although the smart money is on Manchester City, despite info showing they are appealing a future two-year ban in this event. Outside of England there are a number of other teams that are within easy grabbing distance of the trophy. These include Barcelona, Bayern Munchen, Juventus and PSG. We’ll all have to wait and see though, because the final doesn’t come until the end of May, there’s a bit of time to go yet!
