UEFA Champions League, Europa League odds: Man City favored to finally break through | Sports Betting

Manchester City has won just about everything you can win in European soccer over the past 15 years: The English Premier League title six times, the FA Cup twice, the League Cup six times and plenty of matches in the UEFA Champions League.

The one line on the Man City resume that’s missing? A Champions League trophy. They reached the European final for the first time two seasons ago, only to lose to English rivals Chelsea. Last year, Man City fell in the semifinals to Real Madrid in a heart-stopping two-legged tie that ended 6-5 in favor of the Spanish club.

Real Madrid went on to win its record 14th European title, either in the Champions League or its predecessor, the European Cup. This time, Los Blancos defeated another English club, Liverpool, 1-0 in the final.

Those clubs, along with European powers Bayern Munich, Barcelona, ​​Juventus, Paris St. Germain and more are back in this year’s competition, which begins its group stage Tuesday.

But the favorites are the team hoping to finally break through — Man City, which is listed at +250 at Caesars Sportsbook, official odds partner of Bet.NOLA.com. They’re followed by Liverpool at +500, Paris St. Germain (PSG) at +550 and Bayern Munich at +600. Real Madrid is the only other team under 10-to-1 at +900.

Only three other teams are even better than 35-to-1 odds: Barcelona at +1400 and the other two English entries, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, both at +1600.

An English team is -120 to lift the trophy, followed by Spain (+400), Germany (+500), France (+550) and Italy (+1200). Any other nation is +1800.

After six games each in the group stage, the top two teams from each of eight four-team groups — just like the World Cup — advance to a knockout stage that begins in February.

From there, the round of 16, quarterfinals and semifinals are two-legged home-and-home matches decided on aggregate score. The final is a single game, to be played this season on June 10 in Istanbul.

Man City is in Group G with Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and FC Copenhagen and is a heavy -400 favorite to win its group. In fact, every group has an odds-on favorite. The others are: Real Madrid (-400, Group F), PSG (-275, Group H), Chelsea (-275, Group E), Liverpool (-250, Group A), Tottenham (-200, Group D), Bayern Munich (-140, Group C) and Atletico Madrid (-110, Group B).
