The 2022 Champions League is almost here, and the time has come to make your predictions. DraftKings Sportsbook has released its 2022 Champions League predictions and odds. The competition is likely to be the most competitive in years to come, so take a look at these odds and make your picks.
Real Madrid have a reputation for winning the Champions League. This season, they have an even greater chance to win the competition thanks to a number of key signings. For example, they have midfielder Callum McGregor, who provides the link between defense and offense. However, there are also some notable changes to the team that could change the dynamics of the match. The team has lost Casemiro to Manchester United, but they have brought in Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger to shore up the backline. While Real Madrid have a strong squad this season, they have conceded a goal in each of their first three La Liga games.
One of the biggest matchups in the 2022-23 Champions League is Bayern Munich vs Barcelona. These two clubs have combined to win 11 UCL titles and both have great ambitions for the upcoming season. It will also be a chance for Bayern to welcome back Robert Lewandowski, the second highest goal scorer in the club’s history, who is now playing for Barcelona.
Liverpool is the bookies’ favourite to win the 2022/23 Champions League. The league begins early in the season with qualifiers. From there, the tournament progresses through group stages and two-legged knockout ties. The final will be decided in 90 minutes, extra-time or penalties. The final’s location has yet to be decided.
If you’re interested in betting on a game in the UEFA Champions League, you should start by checking out the odds for Chelsea vs. AC Milan. This matchup features two big-name clubs with a rich history. Chelsea has a strong home record and is a favorite, but you can also take a risk and bet on the underdog.
Spain are considered one of the favorites to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, so the team will be keen to use the upcoming games as a warm-up for the big tournament. After reaching the semi-finals at Euro 2020, Luis Enrique will be looking to get his side to peak before the tournament. While the side has been a little slow this season, the upcoming fixtures should serve as a springboard for a high level of play come November.
Los Blancos have been consistently successful in the Champions League and could win it again in 2022. Real Madrid have been among the best teams in Europe in recent years, and they are likely to do so again this year. The team has a strong attacking side, which is crucial in European competitions. Benzema is their top scorer, with 15 goals in as many games. He has also had two assists, making him a strong candidate for the Golden Boot award.
Erling Haaland, the Denmark international, has already scored 15 Premier League goals this season. The only team in the competition he has not scored in is AFC Bournemouth. Haaland’s impressive form has attracted betting interest from the leading bookmakers in the UK. As a result, before the season even started, bookmakers were offering a range of Haaland betting specials.
Kylian Mbappe is a young French forward who is proving to be a force in Ligue 1 this season. After winning the domestic cup twice, the Frenchman is the leading scorer and assists leader. His form has also landed him a spot on the Golden Boot. While PSG’s current teammate Salah is the favorite to win, the Algerian may find it hard to secure the top prize.
Benzema has been in superb form this season and has been one of the star performers in the knockout rounds for Real Madrid. He has netted twice in the Champions League this season and is in the running to win the Ballon d’Or award. The Frenchman has helped Real Madrid to the brink of continental and domestic glory and his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or are increasing as the season progresses.
