Bayern Munich Worthy Favourites in Bookies’ Champions League Odds
Holders Bayern Munich lead the early bookmakers’ Champions League odds to lift the trophy again at the end of the 2020-21 season, writes Nick Dorrington.
Bayern defeated Paris Saint-Germain in last season’s final following a condensed end to the competition that saw the final three rounds played out in one-off ties in group confinement in Portugal. It was the German club’s sixth triumph in the competition, a first since 2013.
Can they hold onto the trophy? The fact that only Real Madrid have done so in the Champions League era says much for the difficulty of achieving that goal. Bayern have, though, been very consistent in going far into the competition, reaching at least the final four in seven of the last nine seasons, including two of the last three.
Bayern did also genuinely look the strongest team in Europe during the second half of last season and there is little to believe that will change significantly in 2020-21. They are worthy of their status as favourites in the UCL betting with the major UK recommended bookmakers. The publicly available statistical models also have them as the most likely winner but that is no guarantee of success.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City seemed to have a good chance of finally triumphing in the competition last season, only for them to fall to a surprise defeat to Lyon in their quarter-final. They remain one of Europe’s best sides but an uncertain start to the new campaign has highlighted some long underlying issues that may again prevent them from going all the way.
Liverpool lifted the trophy two seasons ago and then won last season’s Premier League in dominant fashion. Their Champions League defence ended early with a last-16 defeat to Atletico Madrid but they are a very good team, build on solid foundations, and one that is deservedly ahead of the clump of teams behind them in the bookmakers’ Champions League odds.
That four-team group features recent heavy hitters of the European game. On quality alone, last season’s finalists PSG should be closer to the three favourites, but a more difficult group stage draw has lengthened their betting price. If they can successfully traverse that stage, there is no reason why they can’t again go deep.
The other three all have their strengths and weaknesses, and none of them are at their best level at this point in time. Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid certainly cannot be discounted, it would be somewhat surprising if any of them did go all the way.
After them, we start getting into outside bets: Clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United, and an Atletico Madrid side who have been less consistent in the competition in recent years but still showed themselves capable of eliminating a strong contender last time out. Then there is an Atalanta team who thrilled everyone with their all-out attacking approach in reaching last season’s quarter-final.
Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, the latter of whom reached last season’s semi-final, both have attractive play styles and plenty of young talent, but while a deep run could be possible if things fall nicely, it is difficult to see either of them going all the way and winning it.
Last season’s Europa League finalists Sevilla and Inter Milan could be worthy bets to go far, particularly the former, who do lack a bit of attacking firepower but are very well-structured defensively and don’t give up much to their opponents. Inter went out at the group stage last season but have invested fairly heavily and have retained their potent strike force.
No team from outside of the established big-five leagues made it through to the last 16 last season, and while that is unlikely to repeat itself, it is difficult to pinpoint a side from outside those leagues who has a good chance of advancing any further than that. Ajax’s semi-final appearance two seasons ago was the only time in the last 15 years that a team from another league has made it that far.
RB Salzburg are arguably the best non big-five team, but just like last season, a tough group-stage draw will make it hard for them to make it through to the knockout stages. Ajax, Porto and Zenit Saint-Petersburg are probably best-placed to progress to the last 16, while Olympiakos, who find themselves in the same group as Porto, also have a decent chance of doing so.
