The 2019/20 Champions League season is the 65th edition of Europe’s premier club competition in which Real Madrid boast a record 13 titles. However, after game week two, the landscape has changed once more with Bayern Munich and PSG the two sides seeing their odds shorten dramatically after big wins. Manchester City remain the favourites at the top bookmakers but the gap is closing as we head to game week 3.

The Favorites

1. Manchester City – Pep Guardiola’s side made it back-to-back wins leaving the favourites sitting pretty at the top of Group C.

2. Barcelona – A narrow win over Inter Milan has left Barcelona in a strong position in a difficult Group F with four points.

3. Liverpool –Defending champions Liverpool made hard work of getting past Red Bull Salzburg but prevailed in a seven-goal thriller to earn their first points in this season’s campaign.

4. Real Madrid – The 13-time European champions rescued a point against Club Brugge but remain in deep trouble in the group with just one point seeing their odds drift out.

5. Paris Saint-Germain –PSG came through a tough away trip to Turkey to show that 2019/20 could finally be the year they go all the way.

6. Juventus – Normal service is resumed in Turin, Cristiano Ronaldo is back and amongst the goals as is Gonzalo Higuaín, the three points are flowing again and Juve are looking like contenders once again.

7. Bayern Munich – Five-time winners Bayern turned in the performance of the week, dismantling Spurs to send out a message to the rest of Europe.

8. Atletico Madrid – Diego Simone impressed in an away win in Moscow to show the kind of steel needed to go all the way in the Champions League.

9. Tottenham – Last year’s beaten finalists look beaten already with internal issues derail any attempt at lifting the trophy as Bayern Munich took advantage to destroy the Lilywhites.

10. Borussia Dortmund – Dortmund are likely to largely under the radar this season but sitting top of Group F means only a fool would write them off.

Champions League Draw

Next matches

October 22nd

Club Bruges v PSG– Runaway group A leaders PSG will be wary of their Belgian opponents who were unlucky not to take all three-points against Real Madrid. However, surely only maximum points and one foot in the knockout stages will do for Thomas Tuchel’s men – Away win.

Galatasaray v Real Madrid – In any other year, Real Madrid would be heavy favourites. However, just one point in Zidane’s sides two games have left many questions with the Turkish giants spying an upset – back the draw.

Olympiacos v Bayern Munich – Six points, ten goals, performance of the tournament so far, is there any stopping Bayern Munich? If there is, it is unlikely to be Olympiacos – Back the Bayern win.

Tottenham v Red Star Belgrade – Victory is a must for Mauricio Pochettino’s men otherwise a miracle greater than last season will be required to make it through to the latter stages – back the home win (just).

Manchester City v Atalanta – Six points out of six and no goals conceded leaves City in a commanding position and well deserving of their favourites tag. Expect City to be afr to strong on home soil for the Serie A outfit – home win.

Atletico Madrid v Bayer Leverkusen – Atletico Madrid continue to quietly go about their business and an impressive win in Russia last time out did not get the credit it deserved. Expect Simone’s men to come through this one.

Juventus v Lokomotiv Moscow – Lokomotiv Moscow have proved they are no pushovers, but Juventus are back to their best with Ronaldo and co firing again. Watch out for Juve, they will go far – home win.

October 23rd

Genk v Liverpool – Liverpool have been making hard for themselves in the Champions having conceded five times in group E but surely, they can’t lose to the groups whipping boys, can they? Liverpool win.

Inter Milan v Borussia Dortmund – The stand out tie of game week three takes place in group F with Inter in desperate need of the points whilst Dortmund know a victory will all but put them in the knockout rounds – Too close to call, back the draw.

Slavia Prague v Barcelona – Barcelona have a habit of only getting stronger and showed that against Inter Milan. Messi and co will have far too much for Prague.

Our Prediction

Juventus to win the Champions League

We have changed our tune here after Maurizio Sarri’s Turin outfit thumped Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 whilst the return of Cristiano Ronaldo is major factor. A fully fit Juventus is a daunting prospect and worthy contenders. According to the odds, Juventus are underdogs but those in the know – know better. Backing Juve right now could be one of the smartest moves you make.
