With the 2023/24 Champions League Group games getting going this midweek, we look at who the early outright betting favourite is – plus list the full list of games that are spread over this Tuesday and Wednesday.
Holders Man City Are The Clear Champions League Favourites To Go All The Way Again
With all 32 Champions League sides, who have qualified for the 2023/24 competition, in action this midweek it’s the current holders Man City that are the bookies favourites to go all the way again.
Pep Guardoila’s men have already made the perfect start on the domestic front – winning all 5 of their opening games – but they turn attentions to their Champions League defence this Tuesday night.
They face Serbian side Red Star Belgrade at home in what looks a straight-forward task to get off the mark with three points. The Blue Moon are as short as 1/18 with some football betting sites to win the game, with Red Star as big as 28/1.
City also have Young Boys and RB Leipzig in their Group G and are as low as 1/7 to come out top of the table.
The last back-to-back winners of the Champions League were Real Madrid in 2017 and 2018.
Harry Kane’s Bayern Munich The Champions League Second Favourites
Next best in the 2023/24 Champions League outright betting market are Bayern Munich, who are now armed with former Tottenham hitman Harry Kane.
Kane will be looking to hit the ground running in his debut season for the German side and win his first club trophy as a player.
Munich are on offer a 11/2 to go all the way and match their 2019-20 season in the Champions League.
Bayern Munich also won the Champions League in 2001 and 2013.
They will face Man Utd on Wednesday night in their opening game – a repeat of the dramatic final of 1999, when United scored two late goals to lift the Champions League trophy.
Real Madrid and Arsenal Next Best In The Betting
Behind Man City and Bayern Munich, it’s Real Madrid and Arsenal at 8/1 and 10/1.
Real Madrid will be a poplar pick with England man Jude Bellingham making a great start to his career at the Spanish club, while many feel Arsenal have a live chance to as they look to win the Champions League for the first time.
In contrast, Madrid have won the Champions League 8 times and the European Cup 14 times in total.
