The UEFA Champions league is the most lucrative and prestigious football club competition in the world. Every season, Europe's elite clubs compete for the most coveted trophy in European club football.

The most successful club in Champions League (and as it was formerly known, the European Cup) history is Real Madrid, having claimed 11 titles in all, their most recent being in 2016. AC Milan have won 7, most recently in 2007 while Liverpool sit just behind with 5. In recent seasons it has been Barcelona who have dominated the competition, winning in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015.


Betting on who will win the Champions League is possibly the most popular form of Champions League betting. However, there are many other markets available when betting on Europe's most prestigious club competition, and our tipsters offer their Champions League betting tips on many of these. The Champions League is one of the most popular sporting events in the world and as such you'll find plenty of opportunities to find betting value as the tournament progresses. Popular bookmakers will offer you the full menu of betting options, from head to head betting, goal totals and handicaps.

If you prefer alternative markets or exotics, most bookmakers offer a great range of Champions League exotic markets, such as first goal scorer, time of first goal and correct score.

Champions League

Champions League football has given its fans some of the most magical and amazing moments in European club football. From Liverpool's fantastic comeback in the 2005 Final where they came from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties to Lars Ricken scoring the third goal for Borussia Dortmund against Juventus in the 1997 Final with his first touch - still a record for the quickest goal scored by a substitute in a Champions League Final - are still talked about to this day. Another magical moment came in the 2002 Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen. Zinedine Zidane, one of the greatest players to ever grace the game, scored a wonderful volley, and remains one the greatest goals in Champions League history.

Other memorable Champions League moments include Deportivo La Coruna's amazing second leg comeback against AC Milan in the 2004 quarter final, Lionel Messi's five goals against Bayer Leverkusen and Werder Bremen's incredible comeback from 3-0 down against Anderlecht at the Group Stage of the 1994 tournament to win 5-3.
