UEFA Champions League Futures: Who will lift the European Cup in 2020?

The UEFA Champions League draw will take place on Thursday, August 28th. The UEFA Champions League is the premier football competition in Europe in which the best of the best compete for the European Cup. Last year’s winners, Liverpool, will be considered one of the favourites to win the tournament once more. Football fans can wager on Liverpool or any of the other teams to win the Champions League using the UniBet offer on futures or matchday results. 

The group stage of the Champions League will begin on September 17th/18th and continue until May 30th when the final is played in Istanbul, Turkey.

So, which teams have the best futures odds to win the UEFA Champions League in 2020?

Manchester City 4/1

Ahead of the group stage draw, reigning Premier League champions Manchester City have the best odds to win the tournament. The Cityzens are 4/1 to lift the cup for the first time. While Pep Guardiola’s team has dominated the last two Premier League seasons, the Champions League is a competition they haven’t been able to navigate. Manchester City fans can get the best odds on the competition according to RealFootball365 by visiting the website and wagering on the team before the Champions League kicks off in September.

Manchester City were knocked out of the competition at the quarterfinal stage in back to back seasons. Liverpool eliminated Manchester City in 2017-18 and Tottenham Hotspur did it in 2018-19. English opposition seems to be their Achille’s heel in the Champions League.

Barcelona 11/2

As long as Lionel Messi is at Barcelona, they will be considered one of the favourites to win the UEFA Champions League each season. Last year, Messi and Barcelona were cruising to the Champions League Final only to capitulate and lose to Premier League team Liverpool in the semifinal second leg.

Barcelona conceded four goals in the second match of the two-legged series to lose 4-3 on aggregate. The team limped through the rest of the season and into this term. Messi has been injured and didn’t play Barcelona’s first two games of the La Liga season. 

Liverpool 7/1

Liverpool appeared in back to back UEFA Champions League Finals in 2018 and 2019. The former saw them lose to Real Madrid but they made amends and won the final last May. Jurgen Klopp’s team is still intact and will make an assault on the competition once more.

The Reds could be more focused on winning the Premier League this season, however. They missed out by one point to Manchester City last season. May will mark the 30th anniversary of Liverpool’s last league title. 

Real Madrid 9/1

Like Barcelona, Real Madrid are a default team that sportsbooks give good futures odds to ahead of the UEFA Champions League. Are Los Blancos any better than last season? It is debatable. Since allowing Cristiano Ronaldo to leave for Juventus, Real Madrid lack the swagger and ability they once had. 

Even with the addition of Eden Hazard, Real Madrid may not reach the Champions League Final. Last season saw Real Madrid dumped out of the competition in the round of 16.
