Winner Predictions for Champions League 2020-21
The group stage of the Champions League 2020-21 is over and the 32 teams know who they’re up against in the first six matches of the tournament. Reigning champions Bayern Munich who won last season’s finale against Paris Saint-Germain are the current favorites for this year, especially after their blistering performance at Bundesliga.
Kingsley Coman scored the winning goal at the finale and Hansi Flick’s boys won every single match in the tournament, a total of 43 games. The title winners are riding high on morale and will look to continue their winning streak. Especially after an equally brazen performance at the knockout stages, having earned nine points against Lokomotiv Moscow, Red Bull Salzburg, and Atletico Madrid in the three opening Group A matches.
Next in line, Manchester City is yet to open the scoreboards at the Champions League with Pep Guardiola at the helm. Although the Manager has won the title before with Barcelona, his fortunes are yet to shine with the current side. Liverpool is in this race too, having won their last Champions League title during the 2018-19 season.
The Reds will look forward to lifting their seventh title this year. They’ve been off to a grand start too so far, having scored nine points against Ajax, Midtjylland, and Atalanta.
List of Underdogs for the 2020-21 Champions League Title
PSG reached the finals last season and will definitely try to take it a step ahead this year. Boasting a few powerhouses in their lineup, Mbappe and Neymar will have to bring in their A-game if City wants to take home the title.
Barcelona has hit a rough patch so far and was on the verge of selling Messi this summer. Most neutrals will be glad Messi remained with Barca as they take on Juventus in Group G, which means that fans will yet again catch the iconic on-field rivalry between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Juventus are looking forward to their first Champions League win in almost 25 years. The Series A champions have lost the finals five times since 1996. And although they’ll move ahead from Group G, the result will depend on Ronaldo’s performance.
Real Madrid is gunning for its fifth Champions League title in eight seasons. Zinedine Zidane’s boys won an impressive four seasons between 2014 and 2018 and are among the most established sides in the tournament’s history. Real Madrid will be looking to lift their fifteenth Champions League trophy this year.
List of Outsiders Gunning for This Year’s Trophy
Sitting at the top of the list, Chelsea has a good chance of moving ahead in the competition after being placed in a relatively nonchalant group. Frank Lampard’s boys have had it easy so far this season, scoring seven points against Rennes, Krasnodar, and Sevilla.
Atletico Madrid has proven their mettle in the last decade but is yet to win a Champions League title. The men will look to end the dry spell during the 2020-21 season.
