We’ve arrived at a critical period in this season’s Champions League. Some teams have fallen by the wayside, some have booked their place in the last 16 and some have to go through a nerve wracking 90 minutes on the final day of group matches. Let’s now take a look at how the betting exchanges assess the current situation.


It would probably be the dream final that all neutrals would want to see, as Barcelona and Bayern Munich remain clear favourites to land European club football’s biggest prize. Real Madrid’s humbling in last weekend’s El Clasico has not affected their Champions League odds as they still top the list for best of the rest. French giants PSG and Manchester City complete the top five.

Real Madrid 7.00

PSG 13.00

Manchester City 13.00


The race for the Golden Boot for top scorer in this season’s Champions League is on and the favourite on the best online sports betting sites remains Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo. Polish goal machine and Bayern Munich frontman Robert Lewandowski comes next, whilst Luiz Suarez leads the Barcelona challenge as third favourite. Then it’s another Catalan/Bavarian mix with Thomas Muller, Lionel Messi and Neymar rounding out the top six.

Neymar 26.00


Little surprise once again to see the big three, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid heading this category. The German giants are the bookmaker’s choice at the moment to be tournament top scorers, with La Liga’s big two following close behind. Then the English Premier League shows its hand, with Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United all in hot pursuit.
