Liverpool and Bayern Munich are among the favorites to win the 2020/21 Champions League but are expected to face competition from the likes of Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
After winning their sixth European Cup with victory over Tottenham in 2019, Liverpool ran away with the Premier League title last season having finished a whopping 18 points clear of second-placed Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp’s men saw their impressive start to the new season come to an abrupt halt with an embarrassing 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa last weekend but that result is expected to be nothing more than a temporary blip.
Liverpool are far too good a side to let one poor performance derail their campaign before it’s even begun and the bookmakers clearly agree as this online casino in Kenya is one of many who’ve installed Liverpool as the 5/1 joint second favorites to win the Champions League this season.
The Merseyside club has a relatively straight-forward group after being drawn to face Ajax, Atalanta and Midtylland so Liverpool should ease into the knockout stages where Klopp’s players will be confident of beating most clubs on their day.
Bayern Munich are understandably the 4/1 favorites with most bookmakers having stormed their way to the trophy last campaign. The German’s are already showing some formidable form this year and have a superb squad so they will no doubt be right in the mix to retain their crown next May.
Manchester City fell just short last season after a shock defeat to Lyon in the quarter-final stages so Pep Guardiola will be determined to go further this time around as he looks to win the clubs first ever Champions League title.
City have strengthened their defense this summer after splashing out on Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake and they have a simple group to navigate so Guardiola will hope he’s finally got the foundations to go all the way to the final and they look a decent bet at odds of 5/1.
Paris Saint-Germain went agonizingly close to winning their first ever European Cup after losing 1-0 to Bayern in last season’s final. With the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe up front, the French champions are a very dangerous team and look good value to go one better this season at odds of 10/1 with some bookmakers.
Juventus are always strong contenders and they are priced at 14/1 while Spain’s big guns Barcelona and Real Madrid look tempting at 12/1 as they are always competitive in the Champions League knockout stages.
Chelsea are seen as outsiders as they’re priced at 22/1 while Manchester United have been pushed out to 25/1 following their humiliating 6-1 defeat to Tottenham so the bookies don’t see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer turning things around.
