These are our top free tips for the 2023/24 Champions League. Keep an eye on the odds, which are always subject to change.

Dortmund vs Real Madrid: BTTS @ 3/4 (1.75)

Dortmund done well to keep the door shut in their semi-final match up against PSG but their domestic form has certainly shone a light on some defensive vulnerabilities. Throw on top of that the attacking quality Real Madrid have and it's hard to imagine the Spanish giants failing to find the net. Of course, we'd need to see Dortmund score as well for this bet to come in; thankfully, they have netted in each of their last 10 games in the Champions League games so there is reason to believe they will.

Dortmund vs Real Madrid: Real Madrid To Win @ 8/13 (1.62)

Dortmund were never tipped to go deep in the Champions League at the start of the season so they've done well to reach the final but their story ends here against a Real Madrid side and we suspect that will happen inside the 90 minutes. Real Madrid are unbeaten since September and have won seven of their most recent 10 games. Dortmund meanwhile have lost two of their last six matches.

Kick-Off: 20:00 GMT, 01/06/2024

Dortmund vs Real Madrid: Over 2.5 Goals @ 4/6 (1.67)

Last but not least we turn to the total goals market and we're backing over 2.5 goals. Real Madrid have gone over the 2.5 threshold in six of their last 10 matches with a 4.5 goals per game average. As for Dortmund, they've broken the 2.5 mark in three of their last four games with a game average of 3.5 goals. With respect of previous head to head games the last four have all gone over the all important 2.5 cut off.

Champions League Tips – Outright Predictions

The final section of this article is reserved for exploring what teams could well win the Champions League this season. As you are aware, there are many contenders who could make it through to the final and lift the trophy, but we do have a few teams to direct you towards before you make any outright wagers. Whatever the outcome, you'll want to make sure you take a gander at the bet365 bonus code and the William Hill sign up promo code.

Real Madrid @ 7/5 (2.40)

Real Madrid's history in this competition both longer term and more recently is just ridiculous really; they nearly always find a way of going deep into the tournament and 2024 looks like it may well be their year – again. The quarter-final tie between Real Madrid and Man City was widely seen as a decider for who would go on to lift the Champions League title and Los Blancos came out on top there showing attacking flair, genuine quality and defensive solidity. They'll take some stopping.

PSG @ 5/2 (3.50)

If you run on the assumption that Real Madrid make the final by eliminating Bayern Munich then, by default, the second favourite has to be the side that are fancied to advance from the second semi-final, which is PSG vs Dortmund. Dortmund are punching above their weight to have reached this stage already in our view and we're unconvinced they can see off another big boy over 180 minutes after they already beat Atletico Madrid. Throw into the mix PSG's winning momentum, which they have from Ligue 1, and the fact they boast Kylian Mbappe and it's far from impossible.

Bayern Munich @ 11/4 (3.75)

If Bayern get past Real Madrid then they will almost definitely take the spot of “favourite” heading into the final. We are not sure that happens though. The Bavarians edged past Arsenal in the last round but they weren't tested as much as Arsenal would have liked and doing that again against the likes of Real will be a big ask. That said, the Germans do have match winners in their ranks and should Real be more expansive in this tie than they were against Man City then there will be gaps to exploit.

Popular Betting Markets on the Champions League

Top Goalscorer Odds

‘Who will be the top goalscorer?’ is a widely popular question when it comes to Champions League predictions. The oddsmakers have come up with a couple of different name lists, and the most common names on multiple bookies' top goalscorer market sheet are:

  • Kylian Mbappe @ 1/2 (1.50)
  • Harry Kane @ 7/4 (2.75)
  • Jude Bellingham @ 25/1 (26.00)

You may be able to find longer lists, but these are the best odds provided by bet365. The bookies favoured Erling Haaland to take the top goalscorer title at the start of the season, though things move quickly in this competition.

Penalty Shootout

This is a very cool market for wagering on, especially in the knockout stage. You can bet on whether or not there will be a penalty shootout. This will excite you plenty if other markets seem dull to you.

Name the Finalists

Bookies released this market and the options for those punters who think they can name both of the finalists who will play in Lisbon on the 23rd. If you dare to make an assumption, you can get some competitive odds on certain bookies.

To Reach the Final

If you are sure that a specific team would reach the final but aren't sure whether they would win, this market is perfect. If the odds satisfy you, then go ahead and place the wager.

To finish in the Top 4

The semi-finals are less than a month away, and punters are going crazy guessing who will finish in the top four teams in this year's Champions League. If you can't find this wager on your favourite bookmaker platform, you can request it if they have the feature available.

Champions League – Unique Special Markets

Like any football tournament, bookies love releasing Special markets to their customers. Thanks to them, punters relax and do something different than the regular outright or BTTS markets. As expected, some bookmakers offer unique Special markets for the Champions League this year. Some of them are described below.

Accumulators (ACCAs)

Accumulators are prevalent types of wagers with high payout potential. The trick is that you have to guess right all selections on your bet slip to get the reward from the combined odds. You can place them on multiple matches of the Champions League, and the best part is that you don't have to stake a large sum to win big.

Freekick Score

This market is unusual, and you probably won't find it anywhere, but if you know that a specific player is very capable of performing freekicks, then why not bet on it? You can request a wager via the bookie's request a bet feature and see what kind of odds they would offer you.

Player Assist

Another Special market to think about is to wager on whether a specific player would have an assist during the game. This market is mostly reserved for individual matches, and not outrights.

Winner Nationality/Top Goalscorer Nationality

The nationality markets aren’t directly related to the game, so they are considered specials, even if bookies put them in the outrights category. You will have to guess the nationality of the winning team or the top goalscorer. Again, if you don't find these bets, you can always request them.

Champions League Schedule

Road to the Final

The Group Stages of the Champions League are under way already with the six games taking place between 19th September 2023 and 13 December 2023. After the top two from each group have been determined they'll move on to the knockout stages, which begin in mid-February with the Round of 16 ties. These are a two-legged affair with the second legs being played in early to mid March 2024.

That will see the last eight established with the Quarter Finals taking place across four dates in April; they will be the 9th and 10th of April and the 16th and 17th. From there, we will have our final four where they can start to really dream. Those last two two-legged knockout ties will take place in late April and early May with a three week break before “the big one”.

Champions League final: 1st June 2024

The 2024 Champions League will take place in England with the national stadium, Wembley, playing host to the most prestigious game in club football. Wembley was supposed to host the Final last year, which would have seen Man City lift the famed Champions League trophy in their home country, however, the Covid-19 impacted tournament in 2020 saw a changed format and relocated final. As such, the awarded hosting rights were nudged back a year. We're sure though that a Wembley Final will be worth the wait.
