Champions League: Most Popular Markets

One of the most popular Champions League bets is a wager on the team you think will lift the famous trophy. Chelsea will hope to put up a strong defense of their title, but this is Europe’s top competition and the contenders are lining up to dethrone the Londoners.

Paris Saint-Germain are pre-season favourites after securing the signing of Lionel Messi from Barcelona, with 2020 champions Bayern Munich also strong contenders as usual.

Manchester City reached the final for the first time last season, and their short Champions League winner odds reflect their position as one of the growing forces of European soccer.

Many people involved in Champions League betting online will be looking at other English clubs such as Liverpool and Manchester United, both with strong European pedigree, as serious possibilities.

Spanish trio Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona may not look as powerful as in previous seasons, but they will all still be optimistic of making an impact in the tournament.
