Europe's premier competition is back this week
The first round of last 16 ties in the 2019/20 Champions League may feel like they took place several centuries ago, but it’s finally time for second legs.
You may have forgotten the state of play in Europe’s top competition, but Oddschecker is here to recap the ties and have a look at the outright betting.
Man City currently top of the market when it comes to the outright betting, currently priced as 17/5 favourites, best priced at 888Sport and Unibet.
That means they’re just a fraction ahead of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, who currently find themselves at 18/5 in the betting.
PSG chime in as third favourites, currently available at 11/2, ahead of Atletico Madrid (8/1) and Barcelona (10/1).
Despite touching as long as 500/1 for a miraculous Champions League victory, Atalanta find themselves as 11/1 shots to win it.
Facing an uphill battle in the second leg, Real Madrid are 25/1 to overcome Man City and then go on to win the full competition.
Chelsea are the bookies’ least likely winners, currently pushed out to a whopping 250/1, with Bayern Munich in store for their second leg.
We asked our good friends at Who Scored.com for any interesting titbits surrounding this season’s Champions League.
They revealed that Polish striker Robert Lewandowski has actually scored as many goals in this season’s competition as opponents Chelsea (11).
Serge Gnabry has scored more Champions League goals in London than any Tottenham or Chelsea player this season.
Finally on one of Serie A’s main hopes, Napoli ranks third in Europe's top five leagues for shots but outside the top 20 for goals, while Barcelona are third for goals and way down in 33rd for shots.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Despite their ropey European record, Manchester City are perhaps surprisingly favourites to lift the Champions League trophy.
“Hansi Flick's Bayern side looked formidable in the Bundesliga on their way to securing yet another title, and in a one-off game you'd be brave to back against them.”
