Champions League winner: Liverpool to secure ‘back-to-back European titles’ this season?

Published

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool clinched Champions League glory last season as they overcame a determined Tottenham Hotspur side.

A lot has changed since then, with Jose Mourinho taking over from Mauricio Pochettino in north London. The Portuguese boss has won Champions League titles with Porto and Inter Milan, and will be looking for further success in his new role. 

Spurs suffered some questionable results in their group against the likes of Bayern Munich and Olympiacos, but made it through to the knockout stages with a game to spare. They’ve been given odds of 20/1 to go one further this time around and lift the trophy.

But Liverpool will once again be in their way. The Reds have had another rollercoaster campaign, but eventually progressed from the group stages with a win over RB Salzburg on the final day.

Klopp’s men are 4/1 to make it back-to-back Champions League titles. They will come up against Atletico Madrid in the round of 16, with the Spanish side currently 33/1 to win the tournament.

Pep Guardiola will, however, have something to say about that. He’s still in search of his first Champions League title with Manchester City. And his side are looking as strong as ever this year, having sealed qualification to the knockout stages in top spot. 

They will face Real Madrid in the next round, and are currently 10/3 to win the entire competition. The Spanish side are 20/1 to go on to win the tournament.

But looking hugely dangerous are Bayern Munich, who stormed through Group B with 24 goals. The German giants are 7/1 to win their first Champions League title since 2013. 

They’ve been drawn against old rivals Chelsea, with Frank Lampard’s men progressing from the group stages in dramatic fashion. The Blues are currently 40/1 to win the competition this season.

Also impressing on Europe’s biggest stage have been PSG and Juventus.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are 15/2 to go on to win the tournament, while Maurizio Sarri’s men are available at 12/1. 

Sarri’s old side Napoli are also in the running after going through Group E just behind Liverpool. They’ve sacked Carlo Ancelotti and have been drawn against Barcelona in the round of 16, and are 100/1 to win the competition.

Their Spanish opponents are available at 5/1 to lift their first Champions League trophy since 2015.

RB Leipzig are currently 40/1, with Borussia Dortmund available at 50/1. Valencia find themselves at 80/1, with Atalanta and Lyon currently 100/1 and 200/1 respectively.
