Champions League Betting Markets & Promotions

The majority of UEFA Champions League betting specials relative to the individual l matches will be available a day or so before kick-off, but here are some early options to take into consideration:

  • 2 Up – You Win – Place a win single on any UEFA Champions League match and if your selection goes two goals up at any stage, Paddy Power will pay-out as a winning bet straight away!
  • 5-fold Acca Price Promise – Place a pre-match 5fold+ match odds Acca bet in any league (so at this stage of the competition it would now require a combination of UEFA Champions League + domestic league or cup action in the UK or elsewhere) and should your bet wins AND at the time of your bet you could have won more with one of BetVictor’s competitors, they will give you the difference in cash
  • Super Sub – Place a goalscorer bet on any UEFA Champions League game with William Hill and if your goalscorer selection is subbed, the bet will run onto the player who replaces them – in the 2016 final, for example, Yannick Carrasco scored for Atletico Madrid after coming on for Augusto Fernandez at half-time.
  • Late Goal Insurance – Place a pre-match To Win (90mins) or Correct Score bet with 888sport on any UEFA Champions League match and if your bet is winning going into the 88th minute and then loses as a result of a goal, they’ll give money-back as a free bet up to £25 (min £5)
  • Goalscorer Money-back on 5+ goals – Place £5 or more with 888sport in Goalscorer markets on any UEFA Champions League game and if the match features five or more goals, they’ll refund your stake as a free bet up to £25
  • Free in-play bets – Nearer the time, there will be a range of Free in-play bets available with numerous bookmakers. Among them, Paddy Power and Ladbrokes will offer “free in-play bets” on the match, giving you what is, in essence a 2-for-1 like offer. Simply put, you are required to place a qualifying bet pre-match (up to £50 max) and they will then give you a free bet to the same stake to use ‘In-Play’.
  • Name The Finalists – Bookmakers offer a “Name The Finalists” bet, to pick out the two teams that will make up the 2020 Champions League Final. Of course, this offer is not valid after the UEFA semi-finals are over.
  • To Lift the Trophy – It’s worth noting that you will have the choice as to who will win the match in 90-minutes OR who will win the Champions League. Bookmakers offer an ‘Outright Win’ or “To Lift the Trophy” bet, so whether your selection wins in 90-minutes, extra-time or penalties, you will be paid out.

Champions League UEFA History

The 2020 UEFA Champions League Final was the 65th season of Europe’s premier club football competition

The tournament’s newer format, first introduced in 1992, meant it went from being a tournament solely involving champions, to encompassing those that finish in second, third and even fourth in domestic leagues. It now provides stiffer competition throughout even the early stages.

As the winners of the 2020 Champions League Final, Bayern Munich will automatically be entered into the European Super Cup and FIFA World Club Cup for the following season, just as Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool did in the previous season.

Real Madrid are the most successful team in the history of the competition.

Behind the Spanish giants are ahead of AC Milan with seven, Liverpool and Bayern Munich with six and then Barcelona with five wins.
