Champions League 2022/2023

With Real Madrid securing the 2021/2022 Champions League trophy, the fight to be 2022/23 champions has already hit the knockout stages, and this is the place to come for the latest tips and information on Europe’s biggest and best continental competition.

From Scotland, Celtic and Rangers both featured in the UCL for the first time since 2007/08, but they will go no further than the group stage. The four English teams to qualify via the Premier League last season were title winners Manchester City as well as Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur – with all four teams qualifying for the last 16.

The Reds may feel they have the best chance of the English teams having reached the final in 2022, but Manchester City were the early outright favourites with the bookmakers and they have kept their spot after securing passage to the knockout stages. The Citizens have never lifted this famous trophy before, and although boss Pep Guardiola was twice a winner with Barcelona, he has been unable to add another winners’ medal from this competition to the trophy cabinet since then.

Among the other key contenders from across the continent will be the holders Real Madrid, France’s PSG who continue to look for their first ever Champions League Trophy and Bayern Munich, who will hope to improve on their quarter final defeat from Julian Nagelsmann’s debut season.

The likes of Barcelona and Juventus will also have fancied their chances at the start of the season, but they were knocked out at the group stage and drop into the Europa League.

2022/23 Champions League last 16 line-up

  • Group winners: Napoli, FC Porto, Bayern Munich, Tottenham, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester City, Benfica
  • Group runners-up: Liverpool, Club Brugge, Inter Milan, Eintracht Frankfurt, AC Milan, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, PSG.

What betting markets are popular for the Champions League?

Full-time results

There’s no more popular market to use your Champions League betting tips on than full-time results and score lines.

As each game doles up different opponents, varying playing styles, and fluctuating form, you’ll have the chance to work out what the final score-board will look like.

To score and win tips

Although the Champions League final will be a close one, there is a clear favourite and odds may be short-priced than hoped. A way round this is to look at other markets such as the score and to win bet.

Both teams to score

Simple really – both teams must score for a BTTS bet to payout, 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 final, so keep your eyes peeled.

Player total shots

Here you’ll 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, Mohamed Salah and Karim Benzema who were racking up the shots and putting the opposition keeper to the test.

Bookings

The man leading the all-time charts is none other than Sergio Ramos – who’d have thought? – with 40 to his name. There are currently five players to have been booked three times in the group stage, already securing a suspension, including Marco Verratti.

The Latest Champions League Odds

Looking for the best possible value odds on your Champions League bet today? Look no further than our Odds Comparison tool or our UCL outright odds page, which is updated after every round of games.

This particular tool allows you to find the best possible odds on whatever bet you’re looking for – not just in the Champions League, but in any available market across the world of football. You can filter the matches by day or by competition, meaning that you’ll be able to find the games taking place today – or you can find the games taking place in the Champions League or any other league across the next few days too.

All you have to do is click the ‘1×2’ box to bring up other markets such as Over/Under 2.5 goals and Double Chance, select the market you’re looking for and the bet you’re interested in backing and then all of the available odds will be shown for you to wager on.

Remember, these odds also update in real-time too, so whenever you’re placing your bet you’re getting the best odds available on the tool.

By clicking the odds you’re hoping to back, the tool will not only take you through to the bookmaker’s site or app, where, if you’re already logged in, the selection will load into your betslip leaving you just a tap of the confirmation button away from your bet being placed. If you don’t already have an account, you can sign-up and take advantage of any new customer offers that are available, from sign-up bonuses and the best available odds – what could be easier than that?
