Champions League Prediction 2024/25

Champions League prediction

Betting on the Champions League is undoubtedly one of the most popular to place for gamblers for football predictions. The top clubs in Europe will be battling it out to become the winners of the Champions League final. This legendary competition is considered to be the most important in world football at club level. National champions and other high placing clubs all compete. Clubs such as Barcelona, Manchester City, Arsenal, PSG, Marseille, Bayern, Dortmund, Real Madrid (14 times winners), Atlético Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan and even Porto and Benfica will all be fighting for the trophy.

A legendary competition, considered to be the most important in world football at club level, the Champions League is a competition that involves the best European teams every year. Comprising the champions of each country, as well as the teams that have finished among the national podiums for the major nations, this Champions League is the stuff of dreams for all football fans, and is divided into two distinct phases of competition. And this year there's a brand new format!

Firstly, from mid-September to the end of January, the clubs involved meet in a single pool after numerous qualifying rounds and play-offs. The 36 competing teams then all play 8 matches against different opponents, with no home-and-away play. The top 8 teams from the regular season qualify, and the clubs in 9th to 24th place play off in the round of 32. Clubs in 25th to 36th place are eliminated from all European competitions, and there are no more teams in the Europa League.

After the play-offs, the Champions League pits the 16 qualified teams against each other in the always eagerly-awaited two-legged duels: round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and then the grand final, to crown the European champion team. So why not make the most of the 2024-2025 edition of the UEFA Champions League by making your own predictions? The Champions League odds on online betting sites are certainly the stuff of dreams.

Champions League prediction: The statistics you need to know

To make the best possible Champions League prediction, you need to know a few key figures. Firstly, the number of goals scored. Over the last few years, as was again the case last season, the average number of goals per game in the Champions League has been very high, reaching 3.00 per match. A very interesting figure, to which we must add 56.8% of matches scoring the +2.5 goals, and 37.6% the +3.5 goals. As you can see, you'll need to bet on an avalanche of goals in 2024-2025 if you want to make some reliable predictions on sports betting sites.

In the same vein, note that home advantage plays a major role in the Champions League. Take into account that the home win ratio reached 49% for this latest edition (22% of draws, 29% of away wins). If in doubt, don't hesitate to try double chance 1 or 2 when placing your sports bets on the current tournament. With still so few draws in the competition, the N should be avoided for your Champions League sports bets.

Finally, as well as noting that the most common scoreline is still 1-0 (or 0-1), which was the case in over 17.5% of matches last year, you will also note that the most prolific quarter-hour of the competition is still the classic 76 to 90 minutes, with 22.9% of goals. In 2024-2025, the "Goal between the 76th and 90th" bet will therefore be one of the most interesting to accumulate over the course of the competition. Generally speaking, it will net you €60 for a €100 bet. So don't hesitate to give it a go, as it could boost your winnings with the bookmakers.

Champions League predictions

As they do every season, Europe's top teams will be vying to win the 2024-2025 Champions League. Last year, Real Madrid were crowned champions for the 15th time in their history, and added their name to the legend of the competition.

This year, the Spanish club will be one of the two big favourites, both among the bookmakers and most observers. With the arrival of Kylian Mbappé, the club that has won two of the three Europa League looks stronger than ever. Of course, there are other clubs to keep an eye on, such as Bayern Munich, who are always dangerous in the competition.

But, of course, the biggest rival for Carlo Ancelotti and his men will be Manchester City. After winning the trophy for the very first time in their history two years ago, the English club will be hoping to continue in the Champion's League and start catching up with the tournament's historic clubs. Under Pep Guardiola, Man City will once again be very dangerous.

For the moment, when it comes to the future winner of this Champions League, we advise you to try the odds on Real Madrid or Manchester City! Do you agree with us? Then don't hesitate to try your luck!
