Champions League Predictions & Betting Tips
Last year’s Champions League may not have been what we are used to, but we were delivered a fascinating showdown in Portugal to settle the final stages of the 2019/2020 campaign, with German giants Bayern Munich the side to take the crown from Liverpool and take the title of Europe’s best.
With the condensed nature of the tournament, matches were one leg only from the quarter final stages onwards, before the final eight descended upon Lisbon for a World Cup style knock-out cup competition played over one-leg fixtures.
During that thrilling mini-tournament, the likes of Manchester City, Atalanta, Lyon and Real Madrid fell one by one, as the elite rose to the occasion, providing moments of pure drama and action.
A repeat of that in the 2020/21 permutations would be tantalising to dive into. Which is why, throughout all of the Champions League action, we’ll be bringing you all of our best bets on this Champions League betting page as well as our best stats-based previews to pick out carefully selected and data-driven bets right through to the final.

Champions League in-play betting tips
You won’t miss a single second of the action or the betting drama with Squawka Bet’s Champions League in-play betting services.
As the games unfold thick and fast and we descend into the business end of the competition, you’ll have this handy platform available that’ll not only ensure you remain in the loop with the games, but also allow you to tailor wagers to the unfolding matches.
This mean that you’ll be able to tweak your punts to what occurs in the game, so whatever your original bet, you’ll have the opportunity to emerge with a big payout in hand.
There’s no better market to use your Champions League betting tips on than full-time results and scorelines.
As each game doles up different opponents, various playing styles, and fluctuating form, you’ll have the chance to work out how the final score-board will look like.
Mostly, the stats make it easy to get a rough understanding. However, there are always anomalies.
For instance, when Paris Saint-Germain played Atalanta last year, a goal-fest was expected. Yet it took two goals in the 90th and 93rd minute to decide that game. Moral of the story? Never bench Kylian Mbappé.
To score and win tips
Operating as one of the more lucrative betting markets, with a score and win tip, you could very easily secure yourself a big payout.
The trick is focusing on the big teams, European giants, Champions League winner betting favourites – the no-brainers, as we like to say.
Some of these no-brainers are Liverpool, PSG, Manchester City (can they do it on a rainy evening in Portugal against a side that finished seventh in Ligue 1?) Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid and Juventus.
Both teams to score
Simple really – both teams must score for this bet to cop out, and that’s regardless of who wins the game at the end of the 90 minutes, making it one of the more popular wagers to use with those Champions League betting tips.
This also counts for extra time goals and penalty permutations, which will come in handy in the latter stages of the tournament, so keep your eyes peeled (yes, Liverpool fans, we mean you).
This particular wager requires you to simply decide on whether or not you think the game will feature a penalty, whether it’s a group clash or a R16 second-leg thriller.
Last season’s Champions League campaign brought up a fair few, though the 2018 final between Liverpool and Tottenham is the most famous example of recent years. Spursy, really.
To score a header
Another market that is very easy to punt on, and obviously, put those Champions League betting tips and offers to good use.
All this entails is that the goals are scored via the noggins’ of the players doing the netting. Which, given the kind of players about the various teams, should be pretty simple to cop out on.
From Cristiano Ronaldo and that super-human leap, through to Virgil Van Dijk and his beast-like strength, expect a fair few headers to go in across the 2020/21 campaign.
Player total shots
Here you’l be able to forecast how many shots you think any given player will rack up over the match, normally as an under/over wager.
Last year, it was the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry, Neymar who were racking up the shots, adding to the xG, and putting the opposition keeper through the rounds – though not always scoring (see the many Neymar misses and sitters).
Champions League games can be spicy affairs, with plenty of angst and anger going about. Which is why punting on the betting markets about how many bookings there’ll be in games is always a wager worth placing.
The man leading the all-time charts is none other than Sergio Ramos – who’d have thought? – with 38 to his name. However, in a Ramos-esque fashion, it was PSG’s players who racked up 29 cards between them last year.
Strikers are always the players at fault for lazy offside calls, either strolling back into onside territory, or too eager with their runs.
Well, what if you could put your Champions League tips to good use on these moments? Squawka Bet are offering you exactly that.
As the VAR calls roll in with middle toes and forehead hairs offside, you’ll be able to check out the odds and enhanced offers on it all and place your wagers accordingly.
A market well worth mentioning – yes, we mean *that* Divock Origi goal – in all your betting engagements, the number of corners taken is another one of those sure-fire bets that could provide quick payouts.
All you’ll need to do is pick one of the overs/unders markets, with our writers providing all the insight on the teams playing. So, keep reading the predictive, analytical previews dished out each week and you’ll be in for an enhanced Champions League betting experience.
Champions League VAR specials
VAR always provides something to feel lucky or enraged about. So, why not take your opinions to the betting markets and forecast on how you think the referees will call it?
From shocking calls, to down-right ridiculous ones, your one-stop tour of all things suspect English refs in all of the Champions League betting endeavours will only be a click away.
