2019-20 Champions League Odds: Man City Leads Quarters

Raheem Sterling Manchester City 2019-20 Champions League Odds

Undefeated in eight UEFA Champions League contests this season, Manchester City prepares for their upcoming quarterfinal clash with Olympique Lyonnais set as +225 favorites at sportsbooks to claim their first-ever UCL title.

City Tops Odds after Ousting Real Madrid

City overcame a huge obstacle in their return to Champions League action last week, tallying a 2-1 victory over Real Madrid to claim a 4-2 win on aggregate in their Round of 16 clash, and will now make a third straight appearance in the quarterfinals in Saturday’s matchup at Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon.

A stout defense has been key to the Citizens’ undefeated run through this season’s Champions League. City has not surrendered more than one goal in any of its eight tournament contests and has allowed just six total goals, while averaging 2.5 goals per match. However, history is not on City’s side. The club has been ousted from the Champions League in the quarterfinals in each of the past three years and has advanced as far as the semifinals on just one previous occasion, in 2016.

Losers in five of their past eight outings across all competitions, Lyon prepares for their date with City set as distant +4000 long shots on the Champions League futures. The French side was unable to defend an early 1-0 lead in the second leg of their Round of 16 clash with Juventus, falling to a 2-1 defeat, but still managed to advance on the strength of away goals.

Lyon also took four of six points from City in a pair of UCL group stage matches last season. However, they must find a way to end a four-game losing streak in non-friendly contests, in which they have been outscored by a wide 8-2 overall margin.

Bayern, Barcelona Meet in the Quarters

Further down the Champions League futures, Bayern Munich trails as +300 second favorites, followed by Paris Saint-Germain at +550, FC Barcelona at +700 and Atletico Madrid at +800.

It will be a clash of titans when Bayern and Barcelona go head-to-head in Lisbon on Friday. The Bavarians have been dominant during a spectacular 23-1-0 win-draw-loss run that featured a decisive 7-1 aggregate rout of Chelsea FC in the Round of 16.

Barca has a lot to prove after being toppled from its familiar perch as La Liga champions by Real this season. The club has also failed to get past the UCL quarterfinals since last raising the trophy in 2015, and has claimed just one win in five tournament dates with Bayern since 2009.

PSG, Atletico Riding Unbeaten Streaks

Rust could be a concern for PSG as they see their first UCL action since March in their quarterfinal date with Atalanta, who head into the quarterfinals sporting +1000 tournament odds. The Parisians have kept clean sheets on seven occasions during a nine-match win streak in all competitions, but faced overmatched opponents in three friendlies during that stretch.

Undefeated in 18 overall contests, Atletico hopes to capitalize on the recent inconsistency of RB Leipzig, who enter the quarterfinals at a lengthy +1800 on the futures after failing to record consecutive wins over their past 13 contests.

How to Read UEFA Champions League Odds

When you check out any soccer sportsbook, you’ll see odds laid out like so:

Manchester City +350

FC Barcelona +400

Inter Milan +900

Lyon +1200

RB Leipzig +5000

In a traditional bet, you’d see the front-runner represented by the minus sign. In this case, the favorite is the team with the lowest odds and the rest are considered underdogs. Man City would be the fave here at +350.

Let’s say you’re looking at Lyon and believe they’ve got what it takes to win it all. If you were to bet $40 on them, you’d get a payout of $520 – your original money is returned along with your winnings of $480. Our Odds Calculator will show you how much you’d win based on the offered odds and amount wagered.

What is a Champions League Futures Bet?

Any bet that you make on an event that will happen in time is a futures bet. Now, you’re probably saying, “But all bets are made before a game.” This is true; however, futures odds are released weeks or even months in advance. For instance, you could bet on the Champions League before the group stage begins.

When oddsmakers create the lines, they are not permanent and will shift as more games are played. If you see odds you like, it’s best to take them as soon as you can before the odds move so much they lose all value.
