Bayern Munich are the favourites to win the 2021/22 Champions League.

With Robert Lewandowski leading the line and other world-class talent including Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich in their ranks, it’s not too much of a surprise.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side gave a 23% chance of winning the trophy, just 3% higher than Manchester City.

City cruised through their group and will be looking to win the competition for the first time in their history.

Liverpool won all six of their group games and are the third favourites, ahead of Ajax and Chelsea.

The seventh favourites to win the competition are Paris Saint-Germain.

The French club went into the tournament as favourites but won just three of their group games.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished second in Group A and a tough tie in the last 16 could await them.

Elsewhere, Man United are 11th favourites and have just a 1% chance of winning.

With Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks, you can never rule United out.
