Top contenders to win the Champions League according to 1xBet


Pick your favourite and place your bet!

Manchester City

The Citizens are the annual favourites of bookmakers. However, this is only on paper – in reality, things are not so rosy for Manchester City.

Sheikhs began to invest in the club more than 10 years ago, and during this time the money spent on improvements has helped secure a large number of trophies, including five England Premiership titles. But the most important trophy, the Champions Cup, has eluded City.

What is Guardiola's team lacking? It seems to be very little. City has a great squad and attacking style of play, but they sometimes lack confidence and a bit of luck. In addition, the team has an outstanding tactician coach, but at important moments this genius can overthink and even impede his team. 

Obviously, this squad doesn't need to re-invent themselves to win the Champions League. The fact is that they have already been molded by Guardiola who is driving them towards winning the Champions League at full throttle. But, every time Pep decides to come up with something unusual for the next important match, it's as if he suddenly hits the brake pedal, and the wheels fall off…

Perhaps the City coach can succeed simply by not slowing down and not adjusting course – just by playing his favourite brand of soccer? And also, to fully believe in his players and simply put the strongest squad in every match. Anyway, if you have faith that the Citizens can finally get their dream trophy, you can bet on it at 1xBet at odds of 2.80.


Last season, there were many soccer fans who thought that Klopp's Liverpool "ran out of steam” and exhausted themselves. However, there were others who believed that the team would recover from injuries – and everything would return to normal.

The latter, in fact, were right. The Reds have passed all the tests with flying colours and returned to their place as one of the top teams on the continent. Liverpool are once again fighting for the championship with City and seriously mounting a challenge in the Champions League. In the two months from mid-January to mid-March, the Reds have won as many as 14 games and lost only one. Besides, Klopp's charges conceded only 5 goals but scored 32. Top class!

It’s hard to say in what ways the current Liverpool team is inferior to its 2019 version, when the Reds lifted the Champions Cup over their heads. Moreover, in some ways Klopp's team is even stronger – for example, thanks to Diogu Jota. 

It seems crazy, but in mid-March among the top four scorers in the English Premier League are three Liverpool players: the familiar Salah and Mane plus the aforementioned Jota. And in the top three assists in the league – three Liverpool players again: Alexander-Arnold, Robertson and Salah. Fantastic!

What can prevent Liverpool from winning the Champions League? Of course, injuries and bad luck – just like any other team. But if you still believe that the Reds will be back on the European throne, you can bet on their success at odds of 3.


It may be a cliché, but the Munich club is really a well-oiled machine that is designed to win the race called the Champions League every year. And if it fails, then the management does everything possible to improve the squad for the next season.

However, this season, the Munich team do not seem unbeatable, and have been somewhat erratic. At one point Nagelsmann's charges concedes two goals to Bochum, then dropped three points to Augsburg and Eintracht. But, they also beat Borussia Mönchengladbach by five goals! Of course, in the Champions League misfortunes also happen, like Bayern’s draw in the first leg of the Round of 16 against Salzburg.

Yes, in the return leg Munich simply demolished the opponent (7:1), but such feats can only be achieved against lesser rivals (with all due respect, the Austrians are not a top European club). But what will happen against a stronger team if everything hinges on one match – not so easy to predict.

In favour of the Munich side is their Eurocup experience and, of course, the team's main weapon – the winner of the "people's Ballon d'Or" in the last two years, the magnificent Robert Lewandowski. On his best days, the striker is able to tear apart any defence. Can the Pole once again celebrate triumph with his team in the Champions League? If you believe in the victory of Bayern, you can bet on such an outcome with odds of 4 at 1xBet.

Real Madrid

Los Merengues doesn’t have the stability and the distinctive style that Pepe's City has, but it has something else – character and a winning mentality. And yes, a little bit of luck.

It seems that Real Madrid have not been called the number one favourite in any season in which they've taken the Champions League – but they managed to pull it off four times in five years. Of course, that gives the team Eurocup confidence for many, many years to come – even if things aren't going so smoothly in the championship.

However, this season, Real Madrid are doing quite well in La Liga as well, although not without setbacks. As for the Champions League, in the round of 16, the Madrid team made an incredible comeback, which could be the needed momentum to propel them to lifting the trophy yet again.

At one point Real Madrid was losing to PSG by two goals on aggregate in two matches, but managed to dig down deep and score three goals. Benzema and Modrić proved that, as much as their detractors want to write them off due to their age, they are still great players capable of winning matches for the team and making history. And their coach, Carlo Ancelotti, still has some tricks up his sleeve.

If you believe that Real Madrid will win the Champions League again this season, you can bet on that outcome at 1xBet at odds of 11.
