A competition with such a rich history surely attracts a lot of punters. Moreover, the fierce nature of the games vehemently increments the chances for goals, as well as surprising results.
It’s in your good interest to have experts guide you through this chaotic waters, and that’s where we come in. At LeagueLane, we have an enormous number of specialists following matches in the UCL day and night.
Unlike other sites, we give equal priority to each and every game, rather than dedicating a lion’s share of our time to the ones that involve hot-shots. Every fixture is subjected to an in-depth review by our team members, who nominate two to three high-value tips, which in turn are subjected to the analysis of experienced pundits.
As can be seen from previous results, goals are prevalent occurrences in these games, in spite of the oppositions involved. To quote a stat, the 64 fixtures so far this season have produced 3.23 goals per encounter, and by default, these matches are potent sources of revenue for bettors.
The matches are subjected to a scrutiny of detailed stats of either team involved. Performances of both squads are considered up to even two decades back, with priority being in direct proportion to how recent the fixtures were. To this mix comes the performances of individual players, their ambitions, mentalities, and how well the members of a team are gelling together.
The analysis further creeps upon the head-to-head results of the squads involved, and the rivalry between the teams.
Several other factors are put under the microscope as well. Whether one of the teams involved are fatigued due to congested schedules, whether they are undergoing a managerial change, if any player is recovering from an injury and things of that similar nature.
Furthermore, one important factor that demands review is the venue of the fixture. The away handicap is a huge parameter that holds huge influence when it comes to matches in the CL.
With clubs coming from different countries, away games are even tougher for traveling contingents, and with paramount stakes involved, home teams would be further eager to utilize this advantage to the utmost.
A great example for this scenario would be how Barcelona was humbled the last season at Anfield, despite being the favorites to easily go through.
In addition, tactics employed by the respective gaffers, the teams’ performance against counterparts of higher as well as lower caliber are taken into account as well.
