|2015-2016||Real Madrid||Atlético Madrid|
|2013-2014||Real Madrid||Atlético Madrid|
|2012-2013||Bayern Munich||Borussia Dortmund|
|2001-2002||Real Madrid||Bayer Leverkusen|
In what looks like another wide open tournament, we’re betting on the experienced side here and going with Barcelona. They are currently second favourites in the latest odds behind Manchester City – but there is still an argument to be had that City are too inexperienced to win this competition. Guardiola’s side keeps showing signs that they will win the tournament but fail to keep enough clean sheets.
With Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in their side as well as new signing Antoine Griezmann, they are certainly capable of winning the Champions League for the first time since the 2014-15 season when they beat Juventus 3-1 in the final. FC Barcelona are looking for their sixth European Cup and we think they’ll get it in the final this season.
Of the other teams in with a chance, Juventus are in the top 5 in the betting because of their new star-man Cristiano Ronaldo and they’re currently 9/1 with Ladbrokes to win the tournament. Bayern Munich had some great success in this tournament in the recent past and finally won the tournament at Wembley when they beat German rivals Borussia Dortmund – however, they are in transition and are not the force of old.
Of course, last years winners Liverpool are prominent in the Champions League winner betting odds for this season because of their back to back finals and triumph against Tottenham last season. There is no real reason why they cannot win the tournament again but their squad is still a bit thin and any injuries could be fatal to their chances. Especially given that they will be going all out to win the Premier League this season.
Lionel Messi is the obvious favourite in this market and if Barcelona are going to win the Champions League as we predict, then it will be Messi go guide them there. The Argentine legend is constantly there or there abouts in the Champions League top goalscorer standards and it would be no surprise to see him get the crown once again.
Cristiano Ronaldo was widely fancied to get the accolade at the start of the tournament and he is favourite in the scorer odds with some bookies.
Liverpool’s Mo Salah is at 10/1 to be the Champions League top goalscorer this season, with Saido Mane an interesting potential prediction at 22/1 with 888Sport.

The biggest team tournament in the world brings together some of the World’s best players and the teams on display in the 2019/20 Champions League season have some real stars. We’ve looked at the top 5 teams in this year’s Champions League and predicted the finishing positions of them.
Star Man – Lionel Messi.
Predicted finishing position – winners.
Stadium – Camp Nou.
Champions League wins – 5.
FC Barcelona are one of the most celebrated teams in the world and their Champions League form under former manager Pep Guardiola was sensational. They won the competition in 2006, 2–9 and 2011 before adding a fifth Champions League win in 2015 when they beat Juventus. Their win at Wembley against Manchester United was one of the best performances by any team in this competition.
Star man – Luka Modric.
Predicted finishing position – quarter-finals.
Stadium – Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
Champions League wins – 13.
Real Madrid made it 13 Champions League trophies in 2018 when they won their third in a row after beating Liverpool in Kiev. Before these wins, no team had ever retained the UEFA Champions League trophy – to put in to context how tremendous this achievement was. Now Cristiano Ronaldo has moved on Real Madrid look much weaker and they are struggling in La Liga this season. This poor form could lead to an earlier than expected exit and we’re going for a quarter-final loss in our Champions League betting tips for Real Madrid.
Star man – Robert Lewandowski.
Predicted finishing position – quarter finals.
Stadium – Allianz Arena.
Champions League wins – 5.
FC Bayern Munich finally got their hands back on the Champions League trophy when they beat Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in 2013. Before that win they had lost two of the previous three finals including one at their own stadium against Chelsea. Lewandowski is still their main goalscoring threat and a defence not as stable as it once was, we’re not expecting a sixth Champions League for Bayern Munich this season.
Star man – Kevin De Bruyne.
Predicted finishing position – semi-finals.
Stadium – Etihad Stadium.
Champions League wins – 0.
It seems like everybody is just waiting for Manchester City to win the Champions League under Pep Guardiola and this could well be their season to do it. With players such as Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bryune in their line-up, coupled with a tremendous goalkeeper and strong back four, they don’t have a weakness on the pitch. The concern is that Man City haven’t yet found a way to play in the Champions League and they have conceded too many goals too often, iron this out and this could be the season they win their first Champions League trophy.
Star man – Cristiano Ronaldo.
Predicted finishing position – semi-finals.
Stadium – Allianz Stadium.
Champions League wins – 2.
The signing of Cristiano Ronaldo has given Juventus a real chance to win the tournament this year but in our Champions League betting tips we think they’ll fall just short. The Old Lady lost the final in 2014 when they were beaten by Real Madrid but their team is arguably stronger this time around. Ronaldo is joined by Dybala and Madzukic and the likes of Pjanic and Cuadrado provides great service to their front players.
It would be on of Cristiano Ronaldo’s biggest achievements if he can guide his new team to a Champions League trophy, but in what looks like an open tournament this season, they have a good chance.
