This year’s UEFA Champions League instalment will be carried out in an unusual fashion. Starting from the Quarter-Finals stage, all the matchups will be played in a single-leg ties format, meaning there will be no rematch, and all the fixtures will take place on neutral grounds in Lisbon. The mini-tournament will be hosted by Benfica & Sporting during August 12-23. Given such an opportunity, top online bookmakers have already posted their offers for the upcoming event.
According to the oddsmakers from Betsafe
, Bayern Munich has the best shot to claim the Champions League title, tightly followed by Manchester City, PSG and Barcelona. If you are a true risk-taker, you might want to back Chelsea’s side at Betsafe, since they have to make up for a 3-goal deficit from the Round of 16 first-leg fixture loss to Bayern. On the other hand, we do feel like Bayern’s odds are a bit too short. Keep in mind, that unlike the majority of other football leagues, Bundesliga has already finished its campaign and Bayern will have a couple of weeks long break. Can this play against them? We shall soon find out.
You can see that oddsmakers from Betsafe are once again backing the Bundesliga side on another market. However, there is still some value behind La Liga to consider. The Spanish side is currently represented by 3 powerhouses, which, moreover, are going to be in a game-mode shape throughout the competition.
What should we expect? Are oddsmakers from Betsafe going to be right once again? We all shall find it all out at the end of August. Please, let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
