About the Champions League
Think of elite club football and one competition springs to mind. The Champions League.
Organised by the Union of European Football Associations (or UEFA for short), the Champions League pits title winners, high finishers and those deserving a place among the top table of domestic football.
It is because of the elite nature of the competition that Champions League betting means big bucks for punters and bookmakers alike with so much variation possible.
From 1992 (ironically the same year the English Premier League came into existence) the tournament formerly known as the European Cup was rebranded to the Champions League in a bid to appeal to a wider audience. The success since has been unprecedented and even seen the rise of the second-tier European cup competition, the Europa League.
So, how does it work?
The Champions League is an ever-evolving beast and relies on aspects such as the UEFA coefficient which is a ranking and seeding system adopted by UEFA in order to work out a countries number of possible entries into the tournament.
For example, the top four leagues in Europe (Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A) are all allocated four places in the competition and this has a profound impact on the Champions League predictions and odds for each tournament.
At the start of each countries domestic season, they will be aware of the number of Champions League qualifying places they have but those nations with lower rankings will only earn preliminary round qualification meaning they have to go through a series of qualifying knockout rounds.
Once the qualification process has been settled, the remaining teams are then drawn into eight groups of four teams in which there are four seeded pots.
This is when the Champions League betting gets interesting as a clearer picture forms as to who has an easier group and therefore passage to the latter stages of the tournament and thus has a much better chance of lower Champions League winner odds.
The top two sides from each group then qualify for the knockout phase which comes to a head at the final when just two teams remain and those sides who finish third in the group dropping into the Europa League.
It is a far cry from the early years of the European Cup when only the champions from each nation competed but due to travel and the sheer financial power of the competition, it is now more an elite league in its own right.
Due to the tournament being the elite European competition it means the quality of teams on show are some of the best in the world.
Most successful Champions League teams
One team in particular are often forerunners in the Champions League odds as they have enjoyed unprecedented success in the tournament.
Spanish side Real Madrid have won the Champions League (and European Cup in its former guise) a truly remarkable 13 times. That’s six times more than AC Milan who have won the second highest number with seven.
To highlight the Madrid sides dominance in the tournament, they have also won the tournament for the last three seasons in a row and once again are a short price in the Champions League winners odds for 2018/19.
Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo was a major factor in Real Madrid’s recent grip on European football guiding Real to four Champions League titles in five years and he also boasts the record of being the Champions League top scorer of all time with over 120 goals and ahead of Argentine and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.
However, now Ronaldo has switched allegiances to Juventus, the Champions League predictions have factored this in and make for very different reading in 2018/19.
The competition has also thrown up some of the most memorable matches of all time.
For example, who can forget the final in 2005 when trailing AC Milan 3-0 at half time, Liverpool pulled off the greatest of comebacks to upset the Champions League betting odds and lift the title for a fifth time.
Or how about the 1999 final in which Manchester United scored two late goals to come from behind to beat Bayern Munich when it all looked lost.
Champions League facts
It is not just the action between teams that the Champions League excels in. The tournament has seen some of the greatest players to ever grace the game compete in the competition.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two names we have already mentioned but the likes of Kaka, Ronaldinho, Raul, Roberto Carlos, Brazilian Ronaldo, Paulo Maldini, and Andrea Pirlo are all players that at one point or another have adorned the Champions League betting markets with their sheer skill and talent.
However, it is another former Real Madrid player that boasts the highest number of appearances in the tournament, goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
The shot stopper has made over 170 appearances in the competition, but it is once again Cristiano Ronaldo who has made the highest number of appearances as an outfield player.
This seasons Champions League is widely viewed as one of the most open ever and that is great for the Champions League betting markets.
Barcelona and Real Madrid often enter the tournament as favourites but a number of factors over the summer including the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo has appeared to somewhat weaken the resolve the pair have on the competition.
This has opened up the Champions League predictions with many agreeing that the winner could come from the UK with former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City viewed as very viable candidates to the throne.
Along with the Spanish duo, German giants Bayern Munich, French heavyweights PSG and Italian Stallions Juventus, according to the Champions League odds the winner will come from one of those.
However, it would be foolish to rule others out. After all, in 2010 it was Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho who took the title and in 2004 Porto upset the applecart (again under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho) who defeated Monaco to the title.
