PSG backed for Champions League glory following Neymar purchase

There has been a lot of support for PSG to win the Champions League since Neymar's arrival in Paris.

Following the €220 million purchase of Neymar from Barcelona, punters have been rushing to back PSG to win the Champions League. 

Over the last 24 hours, in which the final details have been put on the transfer, 41% of bets through Oddschecker have been on the French club to win Europe's biggest prize.

It is expected that PSG will build their team around the Brazilian, much like what Barcelona and Real Madrid have done over the last decade with Messi and Ronaldo. Given Neymar's record in major tournaments and his performances in the Champions League last season, being the catalyst for Barcelona's comeback win against PSG at the Nou Camp, that sounds like sound logic. 

It is well known that, having dominated Ligue 1 since they bought the club, PSG's Qatari backed owners have seen the Champions League as their ultimate goal and the signing of Neymar is a big statement in their potential attainment of that goal. 

PSG have completely dominated the Champions League market on Oddschecker over the last 24 hours, with the next most backed club being Bayern Munich at 8.4%, with Barcelona and Real Madrid languishing on 6% and 7.2% respectively.
