Not to be outdone by UEFA or CONMEBOL, the Asian Football Confederation have their own continental football competition. The AFC Champions League pits the 32 best teams in the AFC against each other in a tournament which provides great drama and plenty of opportunities for shrewd punters to capitalise on the variety of AFC betting odds provided by the bookies.
Asian Champions League odds come in a variety of options. For a start there is a competitive qualification phase. Before the real AFC Champions League betting gets underway, the teams are split into east and west zones for qualifying with the availability of AFC odds making playoffs for a place in the final 32 very exciting if you’ve had a bet.
The 32 teams who qualify are seeded and split into eight groups. You can get AFC football odds on the winners of each match of the round robin groups and also on which two teams are going to progress to knockout stage of the competition. This is where the odds for AFC Championship glory really start heating up.
The knockout stage of the tournament closely follows the format of the UEFA Champions League. The ties are all two-legged affairs apart from the final which is the AFC showpiece event and as such is kept as a one off. Uniquely, the AFC Champions League retains seeding in terms of the east and west zones while there is no country protection rule in the knockout rounds.
You may notice a break in the availability of Asian Champions League odds. That’s because the first half of the tournament takes place between February and May and the second half is saved until August to November, culminating in the final.
If you become a fan of Asian football via the AFC Champions League you will be pleased to know that it is not the only continental tournament in Asia. You can also take advantage of the AFC Cup odds which the bookies offer. The AFC Cup is open to all teams from ‘developing’ nations under the AFC umbrella and those teams who have a strong year in the AFC Cup can qualify for the AFC Champions League. This adds another element of excitement to the AFC Champions League which is a tournament worth considering for clued up football punters.
