Champions League odds: Manchester City cut into odds-on favourites to win first ever European trophy

Punters have been keen on Pep Guardiola’s side following their phenomenal performance in Paris on Wednesday, but can they finish the job?

Manchester City look the side to beat

Manchester City have been cut into odds-on favourites to win the Champions League, following their 2-1 away victory over PSG last night.

Bookmakers have unanimously slashed odds across the board on Pep Guardiola’s outfit, from 2/1 last month into as short as 4/6 at the time of writing.

That’s due in part to their terrific second-half performance at Parc des Princes, and the betting support from punters over the last 12 hours.

In that time period, around 36% of all outright bets have backed City to win their first-ever major European trophy.

Who are the other contenders?

Looking down the market, and it’s another Premier League side in second favourite, in the shape of Thomas Tuchel’s reinvigorated Chelsea.

The West London side are penned as 4/1 – the next nearest challengers to City, following their impressive performance against Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are a shade longer in the market at 5/1, whilst PSG’s odds have drifted dramatically, all the way out to 10/1.
