Man City joint-favourites to be crowned European Champions

 

Update: 29.09.21

Having lost 2-0 to Paris Saint-Germain last night, the odds on Manchester City winning the Champions League lengthened from 7/2 to a general 9/2, however this still leaves them as joint-favourites to lift the trophy. Pep Guardiola’s men came undone thanks to an eighth-minute goal from Idrissa Gueye and a 74th-minute goal from Lionel Messi, however having thrashed RB Leipzig to the tune of 6-3 in their previous European outing, few are getting too concerned about the defeat in the French capital.

This was always going to be City’s toughest assignment in the group stages of this competition and Guardiola will be confident of exacting his revenge when the sides meet for a second time at the Etihad Stadium in eight weeks time, a match in which the Citizens will be firm favourites for the three points. Indeed most firms still make City a 4/1 shot for the trophy with some going as high as 9/2, the same as last night’s victors PSG.

After two rounds of group fixtures, City sit third in Group A although just a single point separates them from joint-leaders PSG and Club Brugge. With four games left to play in this stage of the competition, much can still happen and having got their toughest group fixture out of the way, Guardiola can look ahead with a great degree of confidence.

Elsewhere, Liverpool thrashed FC Porto to the tune of 5/1 in Portugal last night and Jurgen Klopp’s men have seen their odds on winning the competition shortened slightly to a general 7/1. The Reds have collected maximum points from their two group matches and sit firmly at the summit of the Group B table, two points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid against whom they will contest their next Champions League outing at Anfield in five weeks time.

The group stages of the 2021/22 Champions League are now underway and we’ve seen some absolute belters in the first round of fixtures. The standout match this week took place at the Etihad Stadium where we were witness to a nine-goal thriller between Man City and RB Leipzig. This was always destined to be a high-octane affair but few will have predicted the final scoreline, Pep Guardiola’s men brushing aside their opponents to the tune of 6-3. Indeed with the scoring getting underway in the 16th minute and coming to a halt in the 85th minute, this was a real thriller from beginning to end with the home side showing their mettle while looking a little edgy at the back at times.

On the back of this excellent opening result, Man City are now favourites to become European champions for the first time in their history, some firms going as low as 7/2 that they lift the Champions League trophy this season. Indeed on this performance, it’s hard to see just who will stop them in their tracks.

Group A rivals PSG got things off to a slow start with a 1-1 draw away to Club Brugge in their group opener, however the bookmakers still make the French side one of the favourites to land the trophy at general odds of just 4/1.

Liverpool have been placed in what many are terming the ‘group of death’ and while in reality there aren’t going to be any easy groups in the Champions League, the Reds are in for a tough time in a group containing the likes of AC Milan, FC Porto and Atletico Madrid. Jurgen Klopp’s men got things off to a fine start with a 3-2 win over AC Milan however and the Merseyside outfit are an 8/1 punt to lift the trophy, behind Premier League rivals Chelsea who opened their defence of the trophy with a rather unconvincing 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg and whop are a general 6/1 shot to become European champions.

Update: 17.08.21

Paris Saint-Germain have now leapfrogged Manchester City to become bookmakers’ favourites to win this season’s Champions League for the first time ever, following the signing of Lionel Messi from Barcelona.

Only last month, the side from the French capital were as much as 10/1 to become European champions for the first time in their history but following a busy summer in the transfer window, they have now overtaken previous favourites Manchester City in the outright market and currently stand at 11/4, Pap Guardiola’s men having drifted out to a general 7/1 with most firms.

This recent shift in the market will surprise no-one given that the arrival of Lionel Messi alongside Mbappe and Neymar means that the PSG attack is easily the most terrifying in European football. Man City undoubtedly possess a wealth of talent within their ranks but the bookmakers have clearly had their heads completely turned by the addition of Messi into the PSG ranks.

Elsewhere in the betting market, Bayern Munich are now a general 7/1 punt to land the Champions League trophy while defending champions Chelsea are out at 17/2 alongside 2019 winners Liverpool. Manchester United are around 14/1 to become European champions in 2022 while Real Madrid are slightly further out at 16/1.

Manchester City failed in their bid to become European champions for the first time in 2021, however the bookmakers have them installed as favourites to finally attain this goal at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

Having made it into the final of the 2020/21 Champions League, hopes were high in the Man City camp that Europe’s premier club trophy would soon be winging its way back to the Etihad Stadium. Nevertheless it wasn’t to be as Premier League rivals Chelsea became European champions for the second time in their history, Kai Havertz banging in the only goal of the game before the break.

Pep Guardiola will clearly be determined to go one better next season and the general consensus is that Manchester City will go deep into the competition, all the leading bookmakers making them firm favourites to lift the trophy at general odds of 7/2.

City’s perceived closest threat comes from German giants Bayern Munich who are second favourites at 6/1, while Paris Saint Germain and 2019 winners Liverpool come in next at 8/1 apiece. Reigning European champions Chelsea are a 10/1 shot to make it two on the bounce while Manchester United and Barcelona are priced at 12/1 apiece.

The bookmakers are expecting great things from Manchester City next season with all firms installing them as favourites on several fronts. Guardiola’s men are odds-on at 4/6 to win the Premier League title next season while they also top the betting for the FA Cup (7/2) and League Cup (4/1).
