The final is played as a single match. It is played in a neutral stadium. In this case, the venue is marked before the start of the tournament. The stadium is chosen according to the strict requirements of UEFA and must have a five-star rating.

One of the main principles of successful betting is the ability to find and analyze data. A good bettor analyzes all incoming information, checking it for reliability, studying statistics on which it is based.

If the best player on the team has been eliminated or injured and he will not be able to play, it is likely to worsen the results of all players in the club.
Bookmakers have their experts who make predictions and calculate odds. How they do it, no one knows. However, by constantly following the changes in odds, an experienced bettor can easily determine who, according to the bookmaker, is a clear favorite. Creating Champions League predictions, you need to take into account any changes in odds at the bookmaker's office.
When making a prediction, you can't do without intuition. True, only at the beginning. Becoming a professional player is a tremendous reservoir of knowledge and experience, including the nuances of the best players' relationships on the soccer field. Moreover, there appear reliable sources of information, insiders, etc. This allows you to make predictions based only on facts and calculations, therefore making them more successful. However, first of all, the general statistics of the teams and their meetings with each other, the way they played on their own and other people's field is studied.
Basically, the collection of information includes:
- History of meetings between opposing teams.
- How the players' last matches went.
- Who is the top scorer.
- Who is the best assistant.
The more data the predictor can gather, the more likely outcome he will be able to call. It is worth bearing in mind that even such a small thing as the lawn or weather, a quarrel in the team and others affect the outcome. Therefore, many rely not only on analytical data but also on their intuition for personal prediction.
Bookmakers are trying to attract the maximum number of players. Therefore, the odds of the leaders are always the highest, and the bonus offers are generous.
