Who are the Favorites?
Of the group, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich lead the betting market to win this edition of the Champions League. However, given the history of the competition so far, in which teams such as FC Barcelona, Juventus, and Manchester United have not progressed beyond the round of 16, the championship could throw up some surprises.
Manchester City, together with PSG, are the only teams that never won the championship, so for the Cityzens, this could be their first trophy. Also for PSG, who finished runners-up in the previous edition, is their chance to take the title this time.
