Everyone Wants To Be Champion Of Europe

Being knowledgeable about European soccer will definitely help you make profitable bets on the Champions League; it really does pay to perform some research before you make a wager.

It is not only the teams’ Champions League form that needs considering, but their domestic results, too. Scour the internet, and the pages on this site, for injury news, and reports of managers resting key players in their domestic leagues (doing so could suggest they are going all out for a Champions League win).

Another major factor is the extensive traveling some teams must endure. Teams, for the most part, travel short distances in their respective domestic competitions, but are often forced to make long-haul journeys in the Champions League. If, for example, Chelsea are drawn against a Russian outfit such as Zenith St. Petersburg, they’ll be forced to travel across Europe for a midweek game.

This makes home advantage key for Champions League games, particularly if the home team has fanatical home support that drums up a hostile or intimidating atmosphere; even some of the world’s top players fail to perform to their best when they are in a pressure-cooker of a stadium.
