N'Golo Kante

While Jorginho picked up the overall player of the year award, his partner in Chelsea’s midfield landed an accolade of his own.

UEFA Champions League: Most popular markets

This year’s Champions League has already provided plenty of subplots.

For instance, Ajax, Bayern Munich and Liverpool all managed to storm through the group stage, winning each of their six games. Meanwhile, Barcelona suffered their first early exit from the tournament in 20 years.

Not many Champions League betting sites would have predicted that the Catalan club would already be eliminated from the tournament. Speaking of an unlikely Champions League bet, we also saw Sheriff Tiraspol pull off an incredible victory over the powerhouse that is Real Madrid.

Outside of that, there were some exciting matchups drawn for the last 16. This was after the initial draw was deemed null and void and the teams had to be picked again.
PSG against Real Madrid and Internazionale versus Liverpool were undoubtedly the standout ties from that round.

There are plenty of contenders for this Champions League betting market – but Manchester City are seen by many as favorites ahead of the round of 16. Europe’s elite competition is never without drama and that has once again proved to be true for the 2021/22 edition.

The Gazprom Arena, in St Petersburg, was built for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and has hosted plenty of big games since.

It was due to stage the 2021 Champions League final, but that fixture was switched because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian venue now has the honor in 2022.

Last time the Champions League final was staged in Russia, in 2008, Manchester United beat Chelsea on penalties in the first ever all-English final.
