2022/23 Champions League Betting Tips & Predictions

The newest rendition of the Champions League season is upon us. The top-tier European club competition is the one that attracts the most viewership and punters alike. Last season was as spectacular as ever as Real Madrid managed to dig deep in order to win their newest title.

Who will win the 2022/23 Champions League trophy? We try to find that out with the help of our Champions League betting tips.

2022/23 Champions League – Qualification

As before, the 2022/23 Champions League will have both a League Path and a Champions Path in the qualification rounds. The idea is to have six teams from the qualifiers, which will join the ones that have secured their spot in league rankings, totalling 32 teams in the competition.

Third Qualifying Round

Ludogorets (BUL) vs Dinamo Zagreb (CRO)
Sheriff Tiraspol (MOL) vs Viktoria Plzen (CZE)

Champions League Favourites & Betting Odds

If the newest Champions League season turns out to be half as good as the previous one, we are in for a banger. According to the latest Champions League betting tips, there are three main contenders that are pushing strong towards winning the trophy.

Manchester City is once again the top team considered by the bookies to win the competition. The main reason is bringing on Erling Haaland, who is definitely going to lift the Citizens’ attack to a new level.

Liverpool is campaigning for a back-to-back finals appearance and a new title. They added Darwin Nunez to bolster their attack and to replace the ageing Roberto Firmino.

Finally, PSG is tipped to finally lift the Champions League trophy. The attacking trio of Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe will be driven from the helm by new coach Christophe Galtier who is sure to make some improvements in Paris.

Rank Club Odds
1. Manchester City (England) 5/2
2. Liverpool (England) 9/2
3. Paris Saint-Germain (France) 6/1
4. Bayern Munich (Germany) 6/1
5. Real Madrid (Spain) 8/1

*Odds are subject to change prior to the start of the competition.

Teams Competing in Champions League

The 2022/2023 Champions League season will feature 32 teams as before. 26 have qualified through their domestic league ranking, while six will join up from the qualifying rounds.

  • Real Madrid (Spain)

Champions League Competition Format

As our Champions League betting tips will tell you, the newest season will copy the previous year’s format. 32 teams will be split into eight groups of four. After playing two games against every other club in the group, two top teams will advance to the elimination stage. The third-ranked team from each group will continue their European journey in the Europa League.

The teams that qualify for the Round of 16 will play two matchups against each other and will, in the same manner, advance all the way to the finals, which is this year scheduled to be played at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul. The away goal rule has been done away with and teams will no longer have an advantage after scoring a goal on the road.

Champions League Past Winners

Real Madrid showed grit last season as they managed to capture their 14 Champions League trophy. They managed to improve their ranking on AC Milan (seven titles) and showed that they are absolute specialists when it comes to this competition.
