2022/23 Champions League odds: Manchester City Favourites to Lift Trophy
The betting for the 2022/23 Champions League is dominated by Premier League clubs with Manchester City and Liverpool at the head of the outright market.
The betting for the 2022/23 Champions League is dominated by Premier League clubs once again, with Manchester City and Liverpool at the head of the outright market.
Four of the last five finals of the Champions League have featured at least one English club, with Liverpool prevailing in 2019 and Chelsea coming out on top in 2021.
Here is a look at the leading contenders for the premier European competition this season, according to the bookmaker’s odds.
Manchester City (11/4)
Premier League champions Manchester City are likely to be one of the popular football bets for the Champions League this season, as they are the 11/4 favourites. Pep Guardiola’s side have consistently made it through to the latter stages over the last few years, but they have yet to lift the trophy.
Guardiola has added to his squad during the summer to boost his side’s chances in the Champions League. Their goal return is likely to be higher next season, as they have even more options in attack now.
Expect to see the Spaniard make the Champions League the priority in the 2022/23 campaign, as the City boss will be desperate to win the competition to add to his legacy at the club.
Liverpool were beaten in the final last season by Real Madrid. They went into that game in Paris as the strong favourites, but they lost a close encounter 1-0. That contest came at the end of a long season, as Jurgen Klopp’s side were fighting on four fronts.
The biggest blow to Liverpool over the summer was the loss of Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich. However, they still have a squad which can win the Champions League.
Liverpool are second best in the betting at 5/1 for the 2022/23 Champions League. If they are victorious, it will be their seventh success in leading European competition.
It is a new era at PSG this season, as Mauricio Pochettino stepped down from his role as head coach over the summer, with his replacement being former Nice and Lille boss Christophe Galtier.
With Lionel Messi, Neymar and others in their squad, PSG have one of the most impressive attacks in European football. They were beaten by the eventual winners Real Madrid last season 3-2 across two legs.
The PSG owners have been attempting to win the Champions League ever since they invested heavily into the club. The closest they have come so far is to finish runners-up in 2020. They are 6/1 to end that wait in June.
Bayern Munich (13/2)
2020 Champions League winners Bayern Munich are expected to be in the mix for the trophy again next season. The addition of Mane from Liverpool will boost their chances.
The Bundesliga winners are 13/2 to go all the way in the upcoming campaign. With a squad as talented as theirs, they will be a force for any team in Europe.
Head coach Julian Nagelsmann is in his second season at the club now. He will be hoping he can deliver the biggest prize in club football on his second attempt.
The 2022/23 Champions League begins on the 6th of September and it will run through to the final on the 10th of June.
