Champions League final betting always attracts people from across the globe, as soccer fans tune in to see Europe’s best teams battle it out for the top prize. Chelsea is an unexpected finalist, while City has been favourites since the season began.

We have assessed all the UEFA Champions League final betting odds across all the top-tier online providers and will provide some picks from our In-house soccer experts. Stay tuned for some Champions League final betting predictions and betting insights.

Chelsea to beat Man City (4.00)

There is something about Tuchel’s Chelsea, they seem to be grinding out result after result and here they are in the Champions League final. Chelsea has played Man City twice under the new management and won both games, 1-0 in the FA Cup and 2-1 in the League.

Our Champions League final betting tips will favor a Chelsea win, as Pep’s City seems to find it difficult to get a result. Chelsea is a highly organized defensive unit, with so much offensive talent they’re lethal on the break.

The pace of Werner, Ziyech, Pulisic, and Mount moving up from midfield gives them a lot of options. Now, with Havertz showing the kind of player Chelsea paid £70 million for at the start of the season, they look a different animal going forward.

That’s not to say City doesn’t look strong. They possess arguably the strongest team in Europe. But it’s the defensive qualities of this Chelsea side that will cause Pep and his team a headache in Turkey.

Both teams score no draw (3.10)

While we back Chelsea to lift the trophy in Istanbul, there’s no way City plays 90 minutes of football and doesn’t score. Chelsea simply isn’t conceding that many goals. Since Frank Lampard was fired, Tuchel has transformed this defence, cementing Christensen and Rudiger as his two first-choice central defenders.

Players like Rudiger and central midfielder Kante look like totally different players this year. Kante has struggled with managers playing him out of position for some time now but looks like the title-winning Kante we saw a few years back. The German Antonio Rudiger has been playing on another level since Tuchel moved to Stamford Bridge.

That’s not to say City doesn’t look strong. They possess arguably the strongest team in Europe. But it’s the defensive qualities of this Chelsea side that will cause Pep and his team a headache in Turkey.

Chelsea to win 2-1 (13.00)

Chelsea is capable of scoring goals and often does, but the work starts in defence. Tuchel has instilled this mentality in his players and it’s more and more evident with each game that passes.

As we mentioned before, expect a City goal, but no more than one. Pep’s been haunted by the Champions League for a decade, failing to reach the finals with his Bayern Munich team and also with this City squad.

He’s been at City since the start of the 2016/17 season but has failed to make his mark in Europe, something his players will be acutely aware of as well. Chelsea is a smash and grab team, regularly bringing in new managers and getting their hands on silverware almost immediately. Expect to see this again at the end of the month.
