Liverpool may be storming their way towards the Premier League title this season, however arch-rivals Manchester City are the bookies’ choice when it comes to this season’s Champions League. Pep Guardiola’s men finished seven points clear at the end of the group stages of the competition and they edged past Real Madrid to the tune of 2-1 at the Bernabeu in the first leg of their last-sixteen tie, thus putting themselves very much in the driving seat for a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
As a result, the bookmakers have slashed the odds on City winning the tournament outright with most operators going 5/2 that they become European champions for the first time in their history. Bayern Munich are being seen as City’s main rivals in the battle for the Champions League trophy at odds of 7/2, the Bundesliga champions thumping Chelsea 3-0 at Stamford Bridge last week and thus effectively securing for themselves a passage into the last eight of the competition, barring a dramatic and unlikely comeback from the Blues in the second leg.
Liverpool lost 1-0 at Atletico Madrid in their last-sixteen tie last week and as such their odds on retaining the trophy have drifted to as much as 7/1 with some firms.
