About UEFA Champions League - Group A odds

There is no doubt that the Champions League is the most prestigious club tournament in all of football. Organised by UEFA, the governing body of European football, the tournament pits the best teams from the biggest national leagues in Europe against each other. Qualification for the Champions League varies from country to country but the winner of the top division in each of UEFA’s national association gets a chance to participate. The biggest leagues like the Premier League, and La Liga have multiple participants while the winners of smaller leagues like the League of Ireland have to go through knockout qualification which includes 32 teams.

Champions League Betting

Champions League outright betting begins long before the tournament properly begins. There are Champions League winner odds quoted about sides like Real Madrid (the tournament’s most successful club) as soon as they book their place in the tournament proper. However, it is worth taking any early Champions League betting tips with a bit of caution as it is an incredibly difficult tournament to win.

Initially the 32 qualified teams are divided into eight groups of four with the teams. The groups are seeded and teams from the same country are kept apart. After the four teams play each other home and away the top two progress to the knockout stage, the third placed team enters Europa League and the bottom side is eliminated. The knockout ties are each played over two legs apart from the final which is a one off match. The final is one of the biggest matches of the football season and as such Champions league final betting reaches multiple millions of pounds.

UEFA Champions League odds

UEFA Champions League odds on outright markets are not just confined to the tournament winner. You can bet on the winner of each individual group, there are player markets like the tournament’s top scorer and even Champions League odds pitting teams from the same country together to see who will progress furthest. The best bookies all offer a comprehensive Champions League betting outright coverage.

They also price up a big number of in-play Champions League betting odds. Every single Champions League match has upwards of 100 markets many of which are run in-play. Betting odds on the Champions League can add a great deal of excitement to a tournament which is already thrilling in its own right.
