It's been just 24 days since Real Madrid defeated Liverpool to become European champions for a 14th time but we're ready to do it all again as the 2022-23 Champions League tournament kicks-off this afternoon in Reykjavik.

Four teams are in action in what is effectively a mini-tournament of two one-off semi-finals and a final, which will be held on Friday evening. The winners of which will enter the First Qualifying Round alongside the likes of Cluj, Ludogorets, Ferencvaros, Bodo/Glimt and conquerors of Real Madrid in last season's competition, Sheriff Tiraspol.

Both of today's Preliminary Round matches (and Friday's finale) will be held at Víkingur's ground in Iceland, so depsite them officially being the away team against Levadia Tallinn (Estonia) they'll gain home advantage. La Fiorita from San Marino will also meet Andorran champions, Inter Club d'Escaldes, at Víkingsvöllur in Reykjavik.

La Fiorita are regulars at this stage of the competition but they've never won a game in European competition. The best they've managed are a 0-0 draw with Linfield in 2017 and a 1-1 draw with Maltese champions Birkirkara in the Europa Conference League.

That would explain why the Andorrans are 3/5 favourites to win. This will be their third season in Europe and they've notched a couple of wins already, against opposition from the Faroe Islands and Albania.

A win to nil could be on the cards for Inter considering La Fiorita have scored just three goals in 20 European matches to date. That can be backed at 6/5 with Bet365.

Estonian teams don't normally feature this early in the competition, usually joining in the next round. Last year's representatives Flora made it to the second qualifying round thanks to a win over Hibernians of Malta before exiting at the hands of Legia Warsaw 3-1 on aggregate so champions Levadia Tallinn should have some quality about them.

But the game being a single knock-out tie in Iceland could be a leveller and from the outside this one looks like it could be a toss of a coin. It's 9/5 for Levadia to win inside the 90.

    Volta redonda double chance and btts 7-4 (BETWAY)

    dreadful card tonight and this best of a sorry batch of games for me.

    Volta redonda slight favourites and should be scoring against floresta who have been conceding 2+ often recently.

    Volta though seen BTTS in 7 of last 8 away games.
    *** Volta only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 24 away games going back a year ***
    This stat is the main reason for this bet as floresta don’t score many.
    This fixture last season was 1-1 and could be similar today.
    1-1 or 1-2

    Kris have lost 8-1 and 10-1 recently but odds of 1-33 for Kria to win suggest a repeat of the march game is possible 🧟‍♀️

      I got too greedy with that one! That’s it! Been a quality night over all. Hopefully will comment with a couple tomorrow after work :) NIGHT ALL!!

      It’s worth noting if you bet inplay that not many teams like to end on an odd number after the 5th team goal (they seem to mainly end with 6,8 or 10 goals) With the bet above I was edging on the home team to score a 2nd if am honest!
      Not many like to go above 5 team goals either. I’ve seen countless games at 4 or 5 nil at HT but yet end only on 5 team goals (Saving embarrassment to the opposition maybe)
