Champions League Betting Preview

Manchester City

Fans of Manchester City know how desperate their club is for a Champions League title and for good reason.

Pep Guardiola is one of the most accomplished managers in football and still that glorious trophy has deserted him with one of his best clubs ever managed.

Manchester City have all the talent in the world and can rely on their bench to perform when needed.

The squad depth is crucial, and they have made the semi-finals and finals of the competition respectively over the past three years.

The English Premier League club are salivating at another final’s appearance, something Guardiola believes his team will do this season once again.

There is no messing around this year, after the signing of star striker Erling Haaland from Dortmund and the time is now.

Man City are the favourites to win it, but will they finally complete the puzzle?

Real Madrid

Real Madrid are one of the most accomplished footballing clubs in history and after last season’s miracle run, are back for another taste.

Star man Karim Benzema was a huge factor in their success last season, specifically in the knockout stages of the competition.

Couple his heroic performances with Thibaut Courtois being a rock-solid goalkeeper and you have a team that is willing to play for their badge.

A repeat double of the Champions League without Cristiano Ronaldo is something many would not expect but is entirely possible.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are looking like a super team after two dominating wins in the Bundesliga in recent weeks.

The German club have looked to retain their form from last season and are in a scintillating attacking mood at the moment.

The key to watch out for with this squad is their consistency come knockout time.

Sadio Mane has picked up right where he left off before leaving Liverpool and there is no doubting that he will be a star contributor if FC Bayern want to make anything happen this year. has the best Champions League odds and promos, with live betting available on all Champions League games throughout the season!
