Who’s Still In It to Win It?

The Champions League is down to just 16 teams and while all of those established sides will have their eyes on the prize, it’s not realistic to think that every one of them could lay claim to it.

The current favorite, Bayern Munich (+275), has cruised through a group containing Atletico Madrid, so they must not be underestimated as decent bets purely because they are so short.

The Bavarians are a supremely talented side and will likely make the latter stages. It could be another German side that denies them, with three other Bundesliga teams making the draw, meaning 25 percent of the teams still in the hunt for the Champions League hail from Germany.

Of those three, Borussia Monchengladbach (+10000) is the rank outsider, having joined Real Madrid in the next stage after surviving a nervy final day where they relied upon – and got – a draw in the other game in the group between Shakhtar Donetsk and Inter Milan. Gladbach qualified with fewer points than the eliminated Manchester United, however, and will need a lot of luck to go further than the second round.

Borussia Dortmund (+2000) made it through in comparative comfort but having been humbled by Stuttgart 5-1 at home in the Bundesliga on the weekend, their coach, Lucien Favre, was unceremoniously sacked in the aftermath. Due to this, it’s hard to see them going all the way.

The “other” German side, RB Leipzig, however, looks very interesting. Coming in at odds of +2800, they seem way too long for a side that made the semifinals on merit in the 2019-20 season and progressed this time around from a tough group including three-time Champions League winner Manchester United and last season’s finalist, Paris Saint-Germain. Leipzig, only formed 11 years ago, might be great bets to cash out on should they run deep again.

Elsewhere, the three English sides who did progress all offer potential threats to Bayern Munich’s hopes of retaining the title and emulating Real Madrid as the only side to do that in the past 30 years.

Manchester City (+400) is second favorite with Bovada at the time of writing and could fancy the competition after being ordinary in the Premier League to date. Several of their players, such as Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Riyad Mahrez, are at the stage of their career when they may never have a better chance.

If they make the semifinals, Manchester City is worth backing, but not before, because they are susceptible to an underdog, as they have shown in the past two years with knockout defeats to Tottenham Hotspur and Lyon in successive seasons.

Liverpool (+600) is a better bet purely because Klopp’s side has so many game-changers who come alive in the latter stages of games. Chelsea (+1200) isn’t so backable, just because they have fewer experienced players who can make that crucial difference late in the day.

Other picks might be Juventus (+1400) or Real Madrid (also +1400) due to the experience of both sides. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gigi Buffon could inspire the Old Lady to victory, while anyone who counts out a Zinedine Zidane side featuring Karim Benzema is a fool. 

Which Player Will Outscore Them All?

When it comes to the Champions League top goalscorer betting odds, it’s a market with a lot of potential for movement and we’ll know more once the Champions League draw for the knockout stages has been made this week.

The current top goalscorers in the Champions League are Erling Haaland (+400), Alvaro Morata (+1000), Neymar Jr. (+550) and Marcus Rashford, but the latter is already out of the competition despite scoring an average of a goal a game.

Of the players at the top of the charts, we’d pick Haaland purely because he is highly likely to score the goals for Dortmund, whereas Morata and Neymar both have stellar competition in terms of getting goalscoring chances in the forms of Cristiano Ronaldo (+800) and Kylian Mbappe (+1400).

Of those two, we’d back Ronaldo, just because he’s on penalties and is able to score out of nothing.

Other hopes for the Champions League top goalscorer market include Karim Benzema (+1400), who is currently only two goals behind the leaders, and Diogo Jota, who may be out for six weeks, but will be back by the knockout stages and at odds of +3300 simply has to be considered.
