August 2020 - Latest Sports Betting News

With the domestic action finished in all the major European leagues, the spotlight turns to the conclusion of the Champions League and Europa League in August.

Champions League
The Champions League returns, with Man City entertaining Real Madrid in a Last 16 2nd leg tie on Friday 7th August.  The final few last 16 2nd legs take place before the Quarter Finals take place on 12-15 August.

The competition has been condensed into a single match knockout format from the Quarter Finals onwards and will conclude with the final on Sunday 23rd August.

The current outright odds for the Champions League are as follows:

Champions League Winner Odds
Man City 7/2 (888Sport)
Bayern Munich 18/5 (Unibet)
PSG 5/1 (Bet365)
Atletico Madrid 9/1 (Betfred)
Atalanta 9/1 (Betfred)
Barcelona 11/1 (888Sport)
RB Leipzig 14/1 (Betfred)
Juventus 18/1 (Paddy Power)
Real Madrid 25/1 (Paddy Power)
Napoli 75/1 (Paddy Power)
Lyon 100/1 (Bet365)
Chelsea 250/1 (Bet365)

Man City are the favourites at 7/2, but still have defensive issues at the top level and were a long way behind Liverpool this season, so we believe the value is elsewhere.  Although a little out of form domestically, Barcelona are a fairly juicy price at 11/1, if Messi, Suarez and co get re-motivated then they could come good on the big stage.

Other standouts would be Bayern Munich who finished their domestic season in hot form and who hold a 3-0 1st leg advantage over Chelsea in their last 16 tie.  Juventus lost form a little at the end of Serie A, but with Ronaldo, Dybala and co they surely have a chance a 18/1.  PSG, forever nearly-men it seems, do look better this season and are available at 5/1 with Bet365 to finally win the Champions League.

Europa League
The Europe League also concludes in August, with many rounds of action condensed into just a couple of weeks worth of games, again just single legged affairs from the Quarter Finals onwards, with the final taking place on Friday 21st August.

Man Utd and Wolves both have a very realistic chance of winning this competition, a win for Wolves would be massive as it would gain them a Champions League spot - United already have that guarantee after their 3rd placed Premier League finish.

The current outright odds for the Europa are as follows:

Europa League Winner Odds
Man Utd 11/4 (888Sport)
Inter Milan 6/1 (888Sport)
Bayer Leverkusen 7/1 (Bet365)
Sevilla 8/1 (William Hill)
Wolves 15/2 (Bet365)
Shakhtar 16/1 (Betfred)
Getafe 16/1 (Bet365)
Roma 18/1 (Bet365)
Basel 25/1 (Paddy Power)
Wolfsburg 100/1 (888sport)
Rangers 500/1 (Bet365)

Man Utd are the favourites at 11/4, meaning the Manchester clubs are favourites for both European competitions at the moment.  United do look the best team in this competition and it is difficult to see them struggling against anyone on their day.

Out of the other teams left in the competition, Bayer Leverkusen look strong but finished their domestic season a little out of form.  Wolves from the Premier League are probably the next best pick and at odds of 15/2 they could offer good value.  Sevilla always seem to do well in the Europa League and after a strong domestic season where they finished 4th and qualified for next season's Champions League, they could go well at odds of 8/1.
