Starting off, we have our Champions League betting tips for Tuesday's action:

Champions League Betting Tips – Champions League Treble

The Champions League has reached matchday five, and there is still plenty to be decided across a whole host of groups.

Manchester City, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are all hoping to wrap up their groups this midweek, and it is those three fixtures that form our treble.

Tip 1: Kevin De Bruyne to provide an assist – 29/20

Manchester City travel to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday with the knowledge that a draw will be enough to win Group G with a game to spare.

The Citizens are unbeaten from their four matches – winning three and drawing one – while BVB have amassed seven points to sit second and have only lost once, that coming against the Citizens at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s men did slip up recently in the Premier League, going down 1-0 at Liverpool, but they hit back with a 3-1 victory at home to Brighton last time out.

Norwegian Erling Haaland was again superb in that win, adding another two goals to his tally, but Kevin De Bruyne also impressed, and he managed to grab the third in that triumph.

The Belgium international has nine assists in the league to sit top of that category, while he also has two to his name from three Champions League outings this season, and he can add to that count on Tuesday in Germany.

Tip 2: Real Madrid to win – 7/5

Real Madrid continue to be a powerhouse when it comes to European competition, and the reigning champions have already secured their place in the next stage.

Top spot in Group F can be assured with a victory at RB Leipzig on Tuesday, and there is every chance Los Blancos will come away with the spoils, as they have won three and drawn one of their four games so far. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are yet to taste defeat across all competitions this season, while they have only lost one of their previous five away assignments in the Champions League.

Leipzig will be a tough nut to crack, as they sit second in the group and four points behind the leaders, but Madrid’s quality should shine through in this one.

Tips 3: Bayern Munich to win – 9/5

Barcelona are on the brink of being knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage for the second straight year, and their fate looks like it will be sealed at home to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

The Bavarians have a perfect four wins from four to sit top of Group C, and a fifth victory would ensure they finish top of the pool with a match to spare.

Bayern have only lost one of their last 28 away matches in the Champions League, and they head to the Camp Nou on a seven-game unbeaten across all competitions.

Barcelona have faltered in the bigger games this season, losing the El Clasico and going down to Bayern and Inter earlier in the group stage, and it looks unlikely they will be able to get the win required to keep their chances of qualification alive.

Treble Pays – 15/1

Bet UK: Champions League Outright Tip

When you look at the sides around the world, there are dozens of quality sides who could make the UEFA Champions League finals and our Champions League predictions have slightly changed since the transfer window closed. Until the last week of the window, we were convinced that Bayern Munich would win the UEFA Champions League if they kept Robert Lewandowski. However, now their main striker is youngster Jamal Musiala, the youngster could set the Champions League alight this season but losing Lewandowski is a blow to any team and our football tips. This does mean that Bayern Munich have dropped to slightly better odds but it also means that our Champions League predictions for the final have changed.

So, if Bayern Munich aren't our top pick to win the Champions League, who are? The quality of teams in England is significantly lower this season, Spurs may perform better than expected but we believe that Chelsea and Liverpool will both see their Champions League hopes disappear fairly quickly. Leaving Manchester City, who we believe are the only club who can beat the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and Bayern Munich to lift the Champions League.

Champions League History

Originally titled the 'Coupe des Clubs Champions Européens' (European Champions Cup in French), the UEFA Champions League is a prestigious competition with a decorated history. This competition was originally only opened up to teams who had won their league and was contested in a straight-up knockout format, in contrast to the Group Stage and knockout format we witness today.

The competition was dominated in its early stages by Real Madrid who won all of the first five competitions before being beaten by Barcelona in 1960/61, Barcelona would eventually be defeated by Benfica in the final. This would be Barcelona's only final appearance until 1986 when they also lost to underdogs Steaua București 2-0 on penalties after missing all of their four spot-kicks. In 1997, the rules changed to add runners-up from the most prestigious leagues to the competition and then changed once again in 1999 to add 3rd and 4th placed competitors.

However, this just led to further dominance by stronger leagues, the chances of minnow teams winning the competition have faded with Jose Mourinho's FC Porto being the only winner that hasn't featured from Spain, England or Germany in that period.

22 sides have won the competition in 68 seasons, Spain has the most winners with 19, England second with 14 and Italy in 3rd with twelve. Germany (8), Netherlands (6) and Portugal (4) are the only other nations that have had more than one winner. Meanwhile, France, Romania, Scotland and Yugoslavia have all had one winner. Remarkably, three out of the the last four competitions have all had a club reach the final for the first time, Tottenham Hotspur (2019), Paris Saint Germain (2020) and Manchester City (2021), all lost in their first finals. The last time this happened was in 1975 when five debutants all lost their opening finals, for the same thing to happen last season, we would have needed to see Sporting Lisbon, Red Bull Salzburg, Lille or Villarreal reach the final, which isn't something we'd back in our betting tips.
