If every international player dreams of winning the World Cup, club players have their eyes set on lifting the Champions League. It's a long hard road from the qualifying rounds to the group stages and then to the knock-out games where anything can happen. It was back in 1955 that the European Cup competition was launched. At that time, only champion participated but then changed in 1992. The Champions League was created, even though you did not need to be a champion to take part.
This site will give you comprehensive coverage of the 2019/20 Champions League competition. If you want to know where to get the best odds and read previews of the top games, then this site is the place to come for all the information. We have experts who will do their best to lead you to big profits when bettting on the Champions League.
Statistics play a big part in the decision making process carried out by our expert team of previewers. There's no point just putting some money on the favourite because they are the ones expected to win. You need to look at the statistics to judge whether a team is in form or not. If a team has won its last three games, they might be in good form. However, look at who they have been playing to get those wins. If for example, Liverpool have been getting victories against struggling sides, that doesn't mean they can beat one of the top contenders. If they have been beating top sides, then they are a side to be backed..

PSG will be looking to reach the quarter finals aftter losing to Manchester United at this stage last season. They were impressive in the group stages and will certainly fancy their chances of beating Borussia Dortmund who haven't reached the quarter finals of this competition since the 2016/17 season. Real Madrid lost in the last sixteen last season and only won one of their three home group matches. They host Manchester City in the first leg and will be looking to get a lead against the Premier League champions. Two of the lesser lights in this competition meet as Valencia take on Atalanta. The Spanish side won their group and are through to the knock-out stages for the first time in seven seasons and haven't reached the quarter finals since 2006/07. Atalanta are taking part in this competition for the first time. They lost their first three games conceding 11 goals but won two of their final three to qualify with just seven points.
Liverpool continue their defence of the Chaampions League with a tie against Atletico Madrid. They travel to Atletico for the first leg and the Spanish side have won seven of their last eight home games in the Champions League with six clean sheets and have one home loss in the last five years. Chelsea were the last side to win a Champions League game at Atletico and they have a tough draw against high-scoring Bayern Munich. Lyon lost at this stage to Barcelona last season and will do well to get past Juventus who are yet to lose a Champions League match this season. Tottenham have been up and down this season and take on RB Leipzig. They will be without the injured Harry Kane for this tie but Jose Mourinho will feel his new side has enough to get past the Bundesliga side. Finally, Barcelona take on Napoli and both sides were unbeaten in the group stages.
