Champions League Bet of the Day

The Champions League is the most prestigious competition in club football. Starting with qualifying matches in mid-summer, teams from all over the continent battle it out to reach the 32-team group stage.


Those teams are split into eight groups of four. The teams then play each other home and away, with the top two progressing to the last 16. Teams who finish third in their group drop into the Europa League. 

The knockout rounds of the competition are often home to the greatest moments and relate directly to Champions League betting drama.

All of the knockouts take place over two legs, with the aggregate score used to decide which team progresses (extra time and penalties are used to decide ties where aggregates are level after 180 minutes). 

Of course, the goal is reaching the Champions League final, which is a one-off match held in a neutral venue. 

Throughout the course of the competition, our expert football tipsters will provide you with free Champions League predictions.

This page will frequently be updated with our Champions League bet of the day and various other free football tips.
