2019-20 Champions League Odds: Liverpool Seeks Title Repeat

Liverpool Odds to win 2019-20 UEFA Champions League

Liverpool will be aiming to become the first English club in 40 years to repeat as UEFA Champions League winners when they take the pitch for this season’s tournament. But the Reds open the campaign lagging on the UCL futures, where they sit behind tournament favorite Manchester City as a +600 wager at Bovada.

After narrowly advancing past the group stage on the basis of total goals scored, the Reds dominated in the knockout stage of last year’s tournament, outgunning opponents by a 15-5 margin on their way to their first UCL title victory since 2005.

Liverpool benefited from Manchester City’s stunning loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the quarterfinals, but also helped their own cause with an impressive comeback in their semifinal clash with FC Barcelona, overcoming a 3-0 loss in the first leg with a spectacular 4-0 win that propelled them into the UCL final for a second straight year.

With their core returning largely intact, the Reds still have a lot to prove in the upcoming season. Despite recording a club-record 30 wins and 97 points, Liverpool fell one point short of City in their bid for their first-ever Premier League title and now find themselves trailing the Citizens, who are listed as +500 favorites on the Champions League futures.

Manchester City Tops Oddsboard at +500

City emerged as arguably the best club in European soccer last season during an impressive run to a second straight Premier League title. The Citizens racked up a record 32 league wins for a second straight year, but left some unfinished business with their early exit from last season’s UCL competition, which they had been favored to win since the start of the campaign.

Disappointing Champions League performances are nothing new for Manchester City. The club was also bounced from the tournament in the quarterfinals of the tournament in 2018, suffering a lopsided 5-1 aggregate loss to Liverpool, and has reached the semifinals just once in eight all-time appearances.

Conversely, Barca has enjoyed significantly greater success in Champions League action, and prepares for the upcoming season set alongside the Reds as +600 co-second favorites.

The club has claimed UCL championships on four occasions since 2009. And after strengthening their lineup with the offseason acquisition of 2018 FIFA World Cup Silver Boot winner Antoine Griezmann, Barcelona is the heavy -175 favorite to claim a third straight La Liga crown.

Juventus Hasn’t Won Champions League Since 1996

Further down the Champions League odds, Italian powerhouse Juventus joins Ligue 1 champion Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid at +800, just ahead of seven-time defending Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich at +1000.

Juve has dominated Serie A this decade, claiming eight straight league titles. But like Manchester City, success has been fleeting in Champions League action. Juventus has reached the Champions League final on two occasions since 2015, most recently dropping a 4-1 decision to Real Madrid in the 2017 title match, but has failed to lift the trophy since 1996.

PSG has also consistently fallen short in the Champions League, failing to get past the Round of 16 in each of the past three seasons, and has not reached the semifinals at the tournament since 1994. The ongoing speculation about whether Neymar will leave the club and make a return to Barca has raised concerns as the new season approaches. However, PSG remains a heavy -800 favorite to successfully defend its Ligue 1 title in the upcoming campaign.

Other notables on the Champions League futures include Atletico Madrid at +1400, just ahead of last season’s runner-up Tottenham Hotspur at +1800, while semifinalist AFC Ajax lags at a distant +3300 on the board heading into the season.
