The UEFA Champions League group stage is starting soon.  Bet on it! Earlier this week, the Groups were set for the Group Stage of the 2019-20 Champions League tournament.

There are some absolutely stacked Groups (namely, Group F, which includes Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan), while other Groups should be complete runaways.

Based on the rules of Champions League, the top two teams from each Group will advance to the Round of 16, while the third place team in each group will transfer to Europa League.

Group Stage play will last until mid-December.

The toughest battle for Group supremacy is seen in Group A, which includes Real Madrid and PSG. Both teams should advance to the next round, though the winner of the group will secure themselves an easier Round of 16 match-up.

The "easiest" Group is seen as Group C, which includes Man City, Atalanta, Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb.


Let's take a look at the current odds to win each of the Groups, courtesy of Bet365:
