Champions League Predictions
Manchester City are +275 favorites to win the Champions League and although nothing is certain in soccer, the British outfit should easily progress to the semi-finals as they have been drawn against Shalke 04 of the German Bundesliga.
City are -2500 to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals so there is no value at all in betting on this market, but the -260 offered by Bovada on Man City beating Shalke 04 in Germany in the first leg of their quarter-final is more tempting. Shalke 04 are languishing in the bottom half of their domestic league while City are flying high in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City head coach, has been tasked with winning the Champions League, even if it is at the expense of not winning the Premier League. While City have been impressive on the domestic front, they have already lost three Premier League games and lost to Lyon in the group stage of the Champions League. We cannot see City winning this year’s competition.Of the top three favorites, FC Barcelona are best equipped to win the Champions League this season. They were unbeaten in the group stage and take on Lyon of France in the quarter-finals, and they find themselves five points clear in La Liga.
Barcelona have Lionel Messi banging in goals for fun and while Luis Suarez is yet to score in this season’s competition, he is scoring for fun domestically.
FC Barcelona are our pick for Champions League glory this season.
While our Champions League predictions have chosen Barcelona as the winners, you cannot right off the chances of Juventus (+600). The Italians are not unbeatable, as shown by two defeats in the group stage, but they have a certain Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks and he has already won the Champions League five times. Juventus are the experts and making it tough for teams to get at them and if they can overcome a strong Atletico Madrid (+2000) in the quarter-final stage, they could go all the way.
Those of you looking for an outside bet, albeit one that is risky, should look at Liverpool (+800). Jurgen Klopp’s men lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the final of last season’s Champions League, mostly because of some horrendous goalkeeping by Liverpool’s Loris Karius.
Klopp has significantly strengthened his squad with the additions of Alisson in goal, Virgil van Dijk in central defense and midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho. This Liverpool side is top of the Premier League and is much stronger than the squad that reached the final last season. The main stumbling block is they face a two-leg quarter-final against German giants Bayern Munich (+1200). Should Liverpool beat Bayern Munich over two legs (-120 to qualify compared to -110 for Munich), they have a realistic chance of winning what would be their sixth Champions League title.
