Champions League odds
There is a lot to be said about the top domestic leagues around Europe such as the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and the Bundesliga, but there is nothing quite like the UEFA Champions League. The top clubs in Europe meet across the course of the season and then the two best play out the final as the big conclusion each year. Even though winning your domestic league is a huge honour, if you ask any player or manager which trophy they would really want to win at club level then many would answer the Champions League.
Due to the fact that this competition is essentially the best teams in Europe pitting their wits against each other, the Champions League odds for individual games can present punters with some decent value selections. Here at TipsFix, we look to help you find a winning selection as often as possible. We provide tips and predictions for Champions League matches over the course of the season, which can make matches all the more interesting.
It is important to always remember to bet responsibly. Placing a bet on one of our tipped selections can make a match more interesting, but you should only ever bet what you can afford to lose should the selection go on not to be successful.
In terms of the history of the Champions League, the list of winners is essentially a who’s who of the great European sides. Real Madrid are the most successful side in the competition’s history, winning the title a massive 12 times up until 2017. 5 of those wins were the first 5 European Cup competitions, dominating in the 1950’s. Recent wins in 2014, 2016 and 2017 simply added to their success.
Other sides to lift the famous trophy recently include fellow European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich. British sides have had success in this competition too. Celtic were the first in 1967, with a team fondly known as the Lisbon Lions. The first English team to win the European Cup was Manchester United back in 1968, a massive success under legendary manager Matt Busby.
English teams were heavily involved in the competition’s latter stages in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Liverpool won back to back titles and so did Nottingham Forest, followed by Liverpool’s third trophy and a win for Aston Villa, with Liverpool’s fourth title coming a few years later.
There was then a wait until 1999 when Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United won an incredible final at the Camp Nou against Bayern Munich. Rafa Benitez’s Liverpool side won possibly the greatest final ever against AC Milan in 2005, while Manchester United again and Chelsea have also won the competition. Some English sides have came close but missed out in the final, such as Arsenal in 2006 and Leeds United in 1975.
Other teams that have notably won the competition include Italian greats such as AC Milan, Internazionale and Juventus. The last French team to win the trophy were Marseille in 1993, while a great Ajax side won it in 1995.
Champions League predictions
The Champions League is such an elite competition and it is great to follow. The tournament lasts from the qualifying rounds in June and July right through to the final every year in either May or June. The best teams on the continent clash in order to see who really is the best. The greatest thing is that even if you are the best team, you can fall here due to the format of the competition, so there can be plenty of shocks too.
In terms of how we present our tips for the Champions League, each of our published tips pages takes the same format. At the top of the page, you will be able find the date and the kick off time of the relevant match, so that you are fully aware of when you need to put your bets on. You will also be provided with some recent results for both teams, so that you can see which side is in the better form.
By scrolling down slightly, you will then be able to see the Champions League tips that we provide for the match. These come in the form of selections in four separate markets; Match Odds, Over/Under 2.5 Goals, Correct Score and Both Teams To Score. The Match Odds market displays whether we believe that one team will win the match or that it will be a draw.
Over/Under 2.5 Goals will list whether or not we believe there will be 3 or more goals in the contest. The UEFA Champions League tips tend to go the way of ‘Yes’ here, as teams tend to be more open when playing in Europe. Plus, there are so many great attacking players on show that more often than not, goals are a given.
Correct Score is another market that we offer Champions League predictions for. This is self explanatory really, as we will present a tip for what the final score of a match is going to be. The last of our UEFA Champions League predictions markets is Both Teams To Score, which will be a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ selection. We will analyse both sides as an attacking and defensive force and make a judgement call on whether or not we fancy both sides to find the back of the net.
Underneath each of our tips, the potential return from a £10 bet is listed, which is calculated automatically from the odds available on the bet365 website.
