⚽ Champions League Top Scorer Odds

As I’ve already touched on, the Champions League is home to a number of enthralling betting markets, which are based on both competing teams and individual players.

Individual player markets are always lucrative and incredibly popular, with the notion of backing the tournament’s top scorer arguably as commonplace as betting on a winner and taking a punt on the most competitive UEFA Champions League odds.

I’ve outlined the current Champions League top scorer odds below, although it should be noted that second and third favourites Kylian Mbappe and Mohamed Salah currently lead the charts with seven goals.

The prolific Erling Haaland has scored 31 goals in just 25 games in all competitions for Manchester City this term, but he’s currently two goals off the pace with five group stage strikes to his name. Here’s the current odds for the top five contenders!

Real Sociedad v RB SalzburgReal Sociedad have already qualified for the UCL round of 16, while RB Salzburg only remains in contention for a Europa League spot. However, it’s hard to imagine an away win here, with Sociedad having lost just one of nine home matches in 2023/24 (to Barcelona) and the Austrian side struggling with a number of injuries.
SC Braga v Union BerlinUnion Berlin are winless in 14 games since August 26 and already out of Champions League contention, but they have a new head coach and will want to keep their Europa League qualification hopes alive in Portugal. However, Braga are in decent form and retain an outside chance of reaching the UCL round of 16, while they retain a huge goal threat in winger Bruma.
Sevilla v PSVSevilla are drinking in the last chance saloon in the UCL, and they’ll need to beat PSV at home to retain a realistic chance of qualifying for the round of 16. While a win will ensure that their fate remains in their own hands, they’ll have to contend with poor home form and a rampant PSV side if they’re to earn three much-needed points.
Benfica v Inter MilanBenfica will take on Inter in the Champions League Group Stage on the 29th of November, and this is who I think will win:
Bayern Munich v FC CopenhagenBayern Munich will take on FC Copenhagen in the Champions League Group Stage on the 29th of November, and this is who I think will come out on top:
Real Madrid v NapoliReal Madrid have already qualified for the UCL round of 16, while the only need a point against Napoli to top the group. The Serie A side are also in pole position to qualify, but a win in Spain would guarantee a place in the knockout stages. Los Blancos also have several absentees through injury, but the return of Jude Bellingham could prove key in determining the final result.
Arsenal v RC LensArsenal only need a point against Lens to qualify for the round of 16, while a win will see them top Group B. As for Lens, a defeat could leave them fighting for a Europa League place if PSV also beat Sevilla, and they’ll certainly have their work cut out to overcome an Arsenal side that’s incredibly strong at home.
BSC Young Boys Bern v Red Star BelgradeYoung Boys and Red Star have already been eliminated from the Champions League, but a win for either team here would see them edge the H2H between the two sides and book a place in the Europa League. While Young Boys are narrow favourites to prevail, Red Star possess a significant attacking threat and a fully fit squad to choose from in Switzerland.
Shakhtar Donetsk v Royal AntwerpRoyal Antwerp have already been eliminated from UCL Group H, while they need to win by at least two goals in Hamburg to have any chance of claiming a Europa League spot. As for the Ukrainian side, a win will keep their chances of qualification for the round of 16 alive, and they should have too much for their Belgian opponents in Germany.
Galatasaray v Man UnitedMan United will be drinking in the last chance saloon when they visit Turkey, as defeat will eliminate from the 2023/24 Champions League. However, they could be without nine first team players against Galatasaray, while their opponents are at full strength and will fancy their chances of beating the Red Devils again in front of their own fans.
Lazio v CelticCeltic are on the brink of Champions League elimination, while the side hasn’t won away in the UCL proper since September 2017. As for Lazio, they have the carrot of qualification for the round of 16 dangling over them, so I expect them to attack their opponents from the off and ultimately achieve a comfortable win.
Feyenoord v Atletico MadridAtletico Madrid can qualify for the round of 16 with a win at De Kuip, while hosts Feyenoord could be eliminated if they lose and Lazio also beat Celtic. While they’re sure to take the game to Atletico from the off, the away side’s experience and defensive organisation may ultimately prove decisive in Rotterdam.
Barcelona v FC PortoBarcelona are the odds-on favourites to beat Porto at the Nou Camp, but the reverse fixture in Portugal was incredibly tight and only settled by the odd goal. Both sides are also looking to secure qualification for the round of 16, so I expect another nervy encounter that Barcelona ultimately edge!
PSG v Newcastle UnitedNewcastle’s Champions League hopes are on a knife edge as they visit PSG, with defeat enough to eliminate them from the competition. Eddie Howe’s side is also significantly depleted amid a raft of injuries and suspensions, and it’s hard to look beyond a comfortable win for Luis Enrique’s side.
AC Milan v Borussia DortmundJust three points separate the four teams in UCL Group F, and a win for Dortmund in Milan will secure their place in the round of 16. However, Milan beat PSG at the San Siro last time out and will be looking to repeat this success here, and I’m tipping them to edge and tight and nervy game!
Man City v RB LeipzigBoth of these teams have already qualified for the UCL knockout stages, although top spot in Group G remains up for grabs. Of course, City are the obvious favourites to win and extend their unbeaten Champions League run to 18 matches, but Leipzig retain a significant goal threat and should score at the Etihad.
Red Bull Salzburg v Inter MilanInter are in a rich vein form and have significant know-how in this competition, having lost three of their previous 16 UCL games and reached last year’s final. However, RB Salzburg need a win to keep their slim hopes of qualification alive, but can they deliver in front of a partisan home crowd at the Stadion Wals-Siezenheim?
Real Sociedad v Benfica PredictionBenfica are in dire need of a win at the Reale Arena, while three points for Sociedad could secure qualification to the round of 16. They’re certainly the favourites to beat an Eagles side that has yet to score in this season’s Champions League, but can Benfica tap into their excellent domestic form to upset the odds here?
Real Madrid v SC BragaReal Madrid are the overwhelming favourites to win here, while three points would also secure their safe and early passage into the knockout stages. As for Braga, they need a win to keep their own hopes of qualification alive, but to achieve this, they’ll have to produce the greatest ever night in their short European history!
PSV Eindhoven v LensBoth PSV and Lens are in superb form, with the hosts having lost one of 19 games this season and the away side now unbeaten in nine. Interestingly, a win for Lens would put them in pole position to qualify for the UCL round of 16, while PSV ideally need a victory to keep their own chances of progressing alive!
Bayern Munich v GalatasarayBayern already have one foot in the UCL round of 16, and a win here would secure their place in the knockout stages and top spot in Group A. As for Gala, a victory would put them in control of their own destiny and make them favourites to qualify ahead of Manchester United, but can they really prevail in Munich?
Napoli v 1. FC Union BerlinUnion Berlin have now lost 12 successive games, as their European dream continues to turn into a nightmare. This run includes a 1-0 home defeat to Napoli too, but will the Neapolitans do the double here or can Union Berlin finally snap their losing streak and keep their slim hopes of UCL qualification alive?
Red Star Belgrade vs RB LeipzigLeipzig can qualify for a round of 16 place with two games to spare if they win here, while they’ll also need Manchester City to beat Young Boys to seal the deal in gameweek four. Defeat could also eliminate an entertaining and enterprising Red Star Belgrade, so the hosts are sure to be determined in front of an impassioned home crowd.
FC Porto v Royal AntwerpPorto can take a huge stride towards the UCL round of 16 by defeating Antwerp and doing the double over their Group H rivals. However, Antwerp are pointless and really need a win to keep their own hopes alive, but can they earn 3 points in the imposing Estádio do Dragão?
Lazio v FeyenoordWhile Feyenoord have won 10 of their previous 12 matches and moved top of UCL Group E, both defeats in this run have come on the road. Similarly, Lazio are unbeaten in their last five games at home and really need a win at what should be a packed Stadio Olimpico, but which of these sides is most likely to prevail in the Italian capital?
Shakhtar Donetsk v BarcelonaBarca are the overwhelming favourites to win here and secure the double over Shakhtar, but they only just got over the line during their 2-1 win over the same opponents at the Nou Camp. So, this will be a tight and competitive game, and the hosts will be confident of springing a surprise and earning a much-needed UCL win!
AC Milan v Paris Saint-GermainGroup F is this year’s so-called “group of death”, but PSG can take a giant stride towards qualification for the round of 16 with a win here. But can they secure this in the San Siro, or will Milan rediscover their best form and secure a crucial three points in their own quest to keep their Champions League journey alive?
Atlético Madrid v CelticThis is a must-win game for Celtic, who could face elimination from the UEFA Champions League if they lose in Spain. As for Atletico, a win here would put them on the cusp of qualification for the round of 16, but which side will win this high stakes game and potentially extend their journey in the competition?
Borussia Dortmund v Newcastle UnitedThere’s no real favourite to prevail here, but a win for either of these sides will put them in pole position to qualify from Group F in the 2023/24 Champions League. But can Newcastle continue their good run of form and avenge their defeat to Dortmund two weeks ago, or will the Germans complete a potentially decisive double over Eddie Howe’s men?
Manchester City v BSC Young Boys BernManchester City are odds-on favourites to defeat Young Boys again at the Etihad, while three points would be enough to see them qualify for the round of 16. As for Young Boys, they may well need a win to maintain any chance of progressing, but can they spring the mother of all UCL surprises here?
Copenhagen vs Manchester UnitedMan United will be desperate to win in Denmark, as this will put qualification for the round of 16 in their own hands (presuming that Galatasaray also lose to Bayern in Germany). A defeat for Copenhagen could also see them eliminated if Galatasaray win, but can they secure a famous win at the Parken Stadium?
Arsenal v SevillaArsenal can potentially qualify for the UCL round of 16 with a win over Sevilla in gameweek four, while a defeat for Sevilla could also eliminate them form contention in 2023/24. But will the Gunners deliver on their status as favourites, or can Sevilla earn a much needed and surprise victory?
Royal Antwerp v FC Porto PredictionWhile Porto will head to Antwerp in superior form and with better quality players, the bookies appear to be hedging their bets slightly about which team will win at the Bosuilstadion. But will they assert themselves on their opponents and take another step towards the UCL round of 16, or can Antwerp deliver a much-needed win in front of their home fans?
RB Leipzig v Red Star Belgrade PredictionLeipzig are deserved favourites to beat Red Star Belgrade in UCL gameweek three, while this game is almost guaranteed to deliver goals given each side’s attacking strengths and defensive vulnerabilities. But will Leipzig take a big stride towards the round of 16 here, or can Red Star claim their first Champions League win of the campaign and boost their own chances of progressing?
Feyenoord v Lazio PredictionFeyenoord have impressed both at home and abroad this season, while they’ve only lost three of their previous 32 home games since the beginning of last season. However, Lazio are unbeaten in this season’s UCL and even managed to earn a point against Atletico Madrid during gameweek one, so they’re sure to be competitive at De Kuip and will push their hosts all the way.
Barcelona v Shakhtar Donetsk PredictionBarcelona have already taken charge of Group H, sitting top of the pile with six points and a 100% record after two games. As for their gameweek three opponents Shakhtar, they were beaten 3-1 at home by Porto in their Group H opener, but a narrow, 3-2 victory at Antwerp saw them move third in the table and just three points off the top. But can they topple the mighty Barca on the road, or will Xavi’s men take a huge step towards the round of 16?
PSG vs AC MilanThis is a seminal match in Group F, with both sides ideally needing a win to steal a competitive advantage in the race for qualification. But will PSG make home advantage count, or can Milan leverage their defensive organisation and rapid counter attacks to steal what would be a surprise win?
Celtic v Atlético Madrid PredictionCeltic are always a tough proposition at home, but the side appears to lack the quality and efficiency to thrive at the highest level. The reverse is true for Atlético Madrid, who have been particularly ruthless in front of goal in this season’s Champions League and may have too much for their gameweek three opponents.
Newcastle United v Borussia Dortmund PredictionNewcastle are the favourites to topple Dortmund at St. James Park, but the away side has a wealth of Champions League experience. So, can they leverage this to claim their first UCL win of 2023/24, or will home advantage help the Magpies to secure another famous victory?
Manchester City v BSC Young Boys Bern PredictionManchester City are the overwhelming favourites to win in Switzerland, especially having won their first two matches in Champions League Group G. However, Young Boys will be roared on a passionate home crowd and will be determined to at least be competitive against their more esteemed rivals.
Inter vs RB SalzburgWhile Inter are clear favourites to beat RB Salzburg at the San Siro, the Austrian side will be tenacious, competitive and should contribute to an entertaining game. So can Inter get over the line, or will Salzburg earn the win that takes them above Inter in UCL Group D?
Berlin vs Napoli PredictionThis game couldn’t have come at a worse time for Union Berlin, who have lost their previous seven matches in all competitions and are completely devoid of confidence. But can they upset the odds and pull off a much-needed win against Napoli, or will the defending Serie A champions ultimately prevail?
Benfica vs Real Sociedad PredictionThis Champions League game between Benfica and Real Sociedad is incredibly tough to call, while Benfica need a win after losing their opening two Group D matches. Home advantage could prove key here, but can Benfica deliver on their status as narrow ante post favourites?
Lens vs PSV PredictionThis is a tight match and one that’s tough to call, especially with Lens now in the midst of a five-game unbeaten run after a tough start to the season. But will home advantage tell here, or can PSV record their first UCL win of the campaign?
Braga vs Real Madrid PredictionBraga came through two qualifying rounds to reach the group stages of the Champions League, after earning a third-place finish in the Primeira Liga in 2022/23. However, Madrid remain omnipotent in the and currently top La Liga too, so remain the overwhelming favourites to win in Portugal. Here’s my detailed Braga vs Madrid football betting guide and personal take on who will win!
Galatasaray vs Bayern PredictionAfter their famous 3-2 win at Old Trafford in gameweek two and first ever triumph on English soil, Galatasaray will be full of confidence when they entertain Bayern Munich at a usually thunderous Rams Park. In this comprehensive football betting guide, I’ll look at the latest Galatasaray vs Bayern odds while making a prediction about who will win.

Man City vs Inter PredictionAfter 124 games and 371 tournament goals, the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League will draw to a thrilling conclusion on June 10th at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Turkey.

📈 Champions League Betting Markets

Now that I’ve reviewed the latest UCL odds and best Champions League betting sites, the next step is to appraise the most popular (and potentially rewarding) wagering markets. So, here’s a breakdown of the key bet types:

1️⃣ Outright / Match Betting

I’ve already touched on outright and match wagering, which dominate Champions League betting and generate significant demand among punters.

While outright betting requires you to back the eventual UCL winner in 2022/23, match wagering lets you back the outcome of specific matches through both ante-post and in-play markets.

Odds and the risk-reward ratio typically vary between these markets, with outright bets known to be considerably riskier while carrying potentially higher payouts.

2️⃣ Individual Player Markets

While it’s ultimately the best teams that compete for the Champions League crown, it’s the individual players who light up matches and stadiums across the length and breadth of the continent.

Individual player markets such as the tournament’s top scorer also represent relatively high-risk wagers that can offer lengthy odds, enabling you to potentially pursue sizable gains even when staking a nominal amount of cash.

Timing is key when betting on this market, as the odds tend to shorten quickly as teams and their potential contenders are gradually eliminated.

3️⃣ Both Teams to Score and Over/Under Markets

While handicap betting is highly popular in the sport of football, it’s not recommended during the latter stages of the UCL when all competing sides tend to be relatively easily matched.

However, this also means that backing both sides to score in individual matches often offers significant value, while those of you with knowledge of the competing sides can also bet on the over/under market for the total amount of goals scored.

This requires you to bet on whether the total number of goals will be over or under the theoretical value set by sportsbooks (2.5 goals in the most popular threshold), with this type of even-money bet usually well-priced and capable of offering incremental returns over multiple games.

✔️ Champions League Betting Tips

Of course, while having knowledge of the key betting markets is one thing, it’s quite another to leverage these to your advantage and place profitable bets.

So, my expert Betinireland team has created some relevant tips pertaining to the markets referenced above, so you can make the most of your bankroll when wagering your cash or engaging in Champions league free betting!

1️⃣ Understand the Importance of Timing and Precise Match Betting Markets

As I’ve already touched on, outright UCL betting requires you to bet as early as possible if you’re to realise optimal value in the marketplace.

For example, while Manchester City are currently overwhelming favourites to win the 2022/23 UCL, defending champions Real Madrid are competitively priced at average odds of 12.00. However, should Los Blancos eliminate Liverpool over two legs in the round of 16, they’ll knockout one of their key rivals and see their price shorten significantly in the process.

So, by having the courage of your conviction and backing Madrid earlier, you can realise lengthier odds while potentially minimising the required stake amount without compromising on your potential payout.

Top Tip #1: When it comes to individual match betting, try to drill down further into this marketplace. For example, acca betting may offer better value and extended odds during the round of 16 and the quarterfinals, especially if you wager with an operator that offers dedicated accumulator price boosts or insurance.

2️⃣ Think About Player and Team When Backing the Top Goalscorer

If you decide to bet on the UCL’s top scorer this season, it may also be argued that wagering early and proactively can unlock lengthier odds and the best possible value.

However, there’s also considerable risk here, so it’s important to consider circumstantial factors before making your selection. More specifically, you’ll need to address the team that a particular player represents, while also appraising their round of 16 draw and potential route to the final (as this becomes clearer).

For example, I’ve already described how Mohamed Salah is priced at around 3.50 to finish as the top scorer this season, with this making him third favourite for the Golden Boot. However, Liverpool aren’t in great form as a collective unit and have to face Real Madrid over two legs in the round of 16. So, the Reds could well be eliminated at this stage, where Kylian Mbappe’s PSG also face an incredibly tough two-legged tie against Bayern Munich.

Top Tip #2: With these points in mind, Manchester City’s Erling Haaland may be a better option at an average price of 2.50, as City have an easier round of 16 draw and are heavily favoured to lift the title this season.

3️⃣ Break Two-Legged Ties into Single Matches

When backing both sides to score, you’ll first need to analyse the relative strengths and weaknesses of competing sides, before breaking down two-legged ties into individual home and away matches.

Then, you can choose precisely which games to bet on within specific ties, while focusing on the quality of opposing attacks and defensive units and the potential impact of having no aways goals rule in play. You can then make informed selections and allocate your bankroll more wisely.

For example, I'd recommend backing both sides to score in both legs of the round of 16 ties between PSG and Bayern. This is one of the best betting tips for Champions League that I can offer, as while each of these sides boast incredibly strong and pacy attacks, they’re defensively vulnerable and tend to deploy high and aggressive defensive lines. Conversely, the clash between AC Milan and Spurs will be much tighter over the two legs, and I'd potentially avoid backing both sides to score at the San Siro.

Top Tip #3: However, you can find alternative value here by betting on there being under 2.5 goals scored in the first leg of this tie at a price of 1.91 with William Hill. As Champions League bet tips too, this can be highly effective, as it lets you explore different match betting markets and deploy them according to the nature of individual games.
