While City has won four of the last five English Premier League titles, they haven't been able to bring home a Champions League trophy. According to the folks over in Vegas, though, they think that could happen this year. City indeed holds the No. 1 odds to win the title. 

Manchester City is hoping to win the Champions League for the first time ever

On Wednesday night, Man City took on RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Round of 16 matchup. Things ended in a 1-1 draw, but don't forget that the battle between the two sides took place in Germany. Next up in the second leg will be a showdown at the Etihad Stadium. 

Obviously, City isn't the only team with strong chances of winning it all, as Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Napoli also are looking like solid bets to potentially push for the hardware.

Real Madrid is a scary team right now too, especially after its 5-2 win over Liverpool at Anfield. Madrid knocked out Manchester City from the Champions League last season, so you know Pep Guardiola, Kevin De Bruyne, Ederson and others would love a shot at revenge. 

This year's City side has one major difference, though: Erling Haaland. The Norwegian striker has been one of the best goal scorers in the world this season and he moved to Manchester to try and help City get over the hump in the Champions League.

Soon enough, we'll find out if Haaland was the missing piece for the boys in blue. MCFC has a great opportunity to get the monkey off its back. We believe they have what it takes to win the Champions League.
