Champions League Predictions & Betting Tips

21/22 Champions League Predictions

Welcome to the 101 Great Goals Champions League betting tips and predictions page, where you’ll find everything you need surrounding one the most hotly-contested football leagues.

Here we’ll provide constantly updated betting tips and odds across a range of markets, such as top goal scorer and winner tips, as well as key dates for the league and the best bookmakers for Champions League bets.

Champions League: Outright winner tips

So who will win the 2021-22 Champions League? Our betting tips start with Manchester City, who are the pre-tournament favourites with the bookies.

Chelsea beat Man City in the 2020-21 final: that was the first time Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues reached the showpiece. But never write off Bayern Munich’s chances of winning the Champions League!

With Julian Nagelsmann at the helm, Bayern have a galaxy of stars in their squad. And as Bayern are again likely to have a stranglehold on the Bundesliga, the Bavarians may have more leeway to focus on European glory.

Can Chelsea retain their Champions League crown? Maybe, as Thomas Tuchel has been a revelation at Chelsea since his arrival. Now, with time to truly plan ahead, the German coach will surely fancy his chances in this competition. The main question for the Blues remains whether they’ll be able to sustain trophy hunts both domestically and in Europe.

And then there’s Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were knocked out by Real Madrid in last season’s quarter-finals. Yet, with Virgil Van Dijk back in their side, plus Sadio Mane and Mo Salah in attack, Liverpool look back to their formidable best.
