We will have another UEFA Champions League campaign to enjoy in the next months. It is not surprising to see that the likes of Manchester City, Barcelona and Liverpool are all at the top of the betting market at the start of the tournament. Lots of top teams are dreaming of emulating what Liverpool has done in the last season and bring the trophy home.
Outside the outright betting, the UEFA Champions League Top Goalscorer Odds is attracting plenty of punters. By taking a look at the betting market, we can see that, not surprisingly, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are up there as the ante-post favourite to win the Golden Boot. But will it be the time for another player to break this trend? To find Champions League Betting Predictions visit our dedicated section.
UEFA Champions League Top Goalscorer Betting
Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo
The last edition when neither Lionel Messi or Cristiano Rolando secured the Champions League Golden Boot was back in 2007. It is therefore not surprising to see that 888Sport have made both those two football legends at 6/1 to win the Golden Boot again. Ronaldo has won the trophy seven times while Messi has won it six times. It was the Argentinean who secured it in the last season with a total of 12 goals. The previous three campaigns (2015,2016 and 2017) it was Ronaldo who got the top goalscorer award.
Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In the Champions League
Ronaldo might find it difficult to win it this season. He is part of a Juventus squad that might not make it all the way. Messi, on the other hand, has lots more opportunities to win the trophy and therefore he will be confident of securing his seventh Golden Boot title. Ronaldo has scored just 6 goals in the last Champions League with Juventus while Messi has bagged 12. So Messi looks a more valuable option to be the 2019/20 Champions League top scorer.
Bookmakers have made Manchester City the 7/2 favourites to win the Champions League. The Citizens will be relying on top striker Sergio Aguero. The Argentinean is available at 11/1 with 888Sport. This is the same price of his teammate Raheem Sterling. Both have started the campaign really well however, the England star only managed to bag five goals in the last edition.
Moving down in the Champions League top scorer betting market we find Mohamed Salah at 13/1 with 888Sport and Sadio Mane at 22/1 with the same firm. Both those two players were instrumental in leading Liverpool to victory but have only scored five and four goals respectively during that campaign.
Robert Lewandoski from Bayern Munich was second to Messi in the last campaign with 8 goals scored. You can back the Polish international to do better this year at 14/1 with BetVictor: he represents good value if he can continue with similar form. PSG’s Kylian Mbappe and Tottenham’s Harry Kane are at 17/1 and 22/1 respectively with 888Sport. Those are top players but the question mark is how far will PSG and Tottenham go in this Champions League campaign.
