The 2022-23 UEFA Champions League is the 68th edition of Europe’s premier club soccer competition and the 30th season since changing its branding to the Champions League from the European Cup.
Seventy-nine teams were entered into this season’s Champions League and they have been whittled down to the Round of 16. These last 16 teams are made up of the eight group winners from the group stage and the eight runners-up. They now compete in the knockout phase of the competition, which take place over two legs apart from the final which is a one-off game.
The first Round of 16 fixtures begins on November 7th according to the Champions League Schedule. Those teams progressing to the quarter-finals begin to play on April 11th with the semi-finals kicking off on May 9th and May 10th followed by the second legs on May 16-17th.
This year’s Champions League final takes place at the Atatürk Stadium in Turkey. The Champions League 2022/23 final is set to play out on June 10th.
Real Madrid are the reigning champions having won the title against the odds when they played Liverpool. Bookmakers do not fancy Real Madrid’s chances of winning a fourth consecutive title as they are currently priced at +900 to lift aloft the winner’s trophy.
Current favorites are Manchester City of the English Premier League with odds of +300. Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool with futures odds of +500 and +600 are Manchester City’s nearest rivals when it comes to winning the Champions League.

Best Champions League Betting Lines
The most popular UEFA Champions League bets at this stage of the competition are futures bets on who will win the Champions League. As the draw for the Round of 16 has already been made, many online bookies have altered their odds on the eventual winner, with Manchester City, FC Barcelona and Juventus being the top three favorites.

It is also worth looking at the futures market for the Champions League 2022-23 top goalscorer. PSG’s Lionel Messi (+185) is the current favorite as he already has six goals. Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski (+300) is the second-favorite.

Champions League Predictions
Manchester City are +300 favorites to win the Champions League and although nothing is certain in soccer, the British outfit should easily progress to the semi-finals as they are looking unstoppable once again, with Haaland now leading the line.
City are -2500 to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals so there is no value at all in betting on this market.
Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City head coach, has been tasked with winning the Champions League, even if it is at the expense of not winning the Premier League. While City have been impressive on the domestic front, haven't managed to clinch the Champions League title. We can see City winning this year’s competition. Of the top three favorites, City are best equipped to win the Champions League this season. If it's not them, then we feel it's PSG's time.
PSG have Lionel Messi banging in goals for fun and while Mbappe is yet to score in this season’s competition, he is scoring for fun domestically.
Man City are our pick for Champions League glory this season.
While our Champions League predictions have chosen Man City as the winners, you cannot right off the chances of Liverpool (+600). The Scousers will make it tough for teams to get at them and if they can overcome the other strong opponents, especially their bogie team from last year, Real Madrid.
