Champions League Betting Tips from our Experts

2021/22 Champions League


Chelsea were perhaps unlikely winners of the 2020/21 Champions League. They beat Manchester City in the final but could only finish fourth in the English Premier League last season. Now they bid to make it all the way to another final.. 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 2021/22 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.  Every game from the group stages will be covered, why go anywhere else?

Bet on the Champions League with Bet365



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, domestic form is very different from that in the Champions League. A team like Lokomotiv Moscow may be doing great in the Russian Premier League, but the Champions League is far tougher.

When it comes to the Champions League, statistics are very important. Here are ten key statistics that can help you make winning bets on this competition.

  1. Chelsea only lost one game in winning the 2020/21 Champions League.
  2. The last eight games played by Chelsea last season all had under 2.5 goals scored in them.
  3. An average of 2.92 goals were scored in Champions League games last season.
  4. Erling Haaland was the top goalscorer last season with ten goals.
  5. 41.2% of games last season ended in an away win, compared to 40.3% home wins and 18.5% draws.
  6. 57% of games had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
  7. 34.4% had over 3.5 goals scored.
  8. Juan Cuadrado of Juventus had the most assists last season with six.
  9. Both teams scored in 51.25% of games last season.
  10. The most popular final score was 2-0.
