Europe’s major domestic league campaigns are fast drawing to a conclusion and already it’s getting clearer just who will be qualifying for next season’s Champions League. Europe’s top-tier football club competition is a massively lucrative affair and many teams across the continent will now be involved in a final push for automatic qualification.
Nevertheless, there is still the small matter of getting the 2019/20 Champions League out of the way, this season’s competition delayed due to the recent lockdown and due to restart on Friday 7th August. Prior to the enforced break, Atalanta, Atletico Madrid, RB Leipzig and Paris Saint Germain had already booked their place in the quarter-finals of the competition, while eight other sides still need to complete the second legs of the last-sixteen round.
As things stand, Manchester City are joint-favourites to win the competition, the Citizens having edged past Real Madrid to the tune of 2-1 at the Bernabeu in February. Punters have been backing Pep Guardiola’s men in their droves to get the job done at the Etihad Stadium next month and thus steer themselves into the last eight of the competition, the bookies reacting by shortening their odds on winning the competition to just 3/1.
Bayern Munich sit level on odds with Manchester City at the top of the betting market, the German champions having thrashed Chelsea 3-0 in a one-sided clash at Stamford Bridge in February and almost certain to finish the job in the return leg.
Barcelona rarely fail to appear in the latter stages of the Champions League and the Catalan giants once again have one foot in the last eight of the competition. Barca could only manage a 1-1 draw with Serie A side Napoli before the break, however their home form this season has been awesome and few believe that they will falter in the return leg at the Nou Camp, the bookies going a general 6/1 that they hold aloft the trophy at the end of the campaign
Paris Saint Germain made sure of their place in the quarter-finals thanks to their 3-2 aggregate win over Borussia Dortmund prior to the break. The bookmakers make the French champions a 7/1 shot to go all the way in the competition. PSG have never before been European champions but many believe that this unenviable record may just come to an end this year.
Atletico Madrid dumped reigning European champions Liverpool out of the competition prior to the break and they are a general 12/1 to go all the way this season while Juventus are a 14/1 shot for European glory.
