PSG and Man City are Champions League favorites in 2021
With the 2021-22 Champions League all set to get started on Tuesday night in Europe, fans across the globe can't wait to see some of the best players in the world put on a show.
Well, as we get ready to start the competition, two clubs have emerged as the serious favorites to win it all: Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City. Both these teams have what it takes to lift the trophy next spring. Will one of them end up getting the job done?
PSG holds the best odds to win the Champions League
According to the Vegas sportsbooks, PSG holds the top Champions League odds entering Tuesday at +360. This shouldn't come as a massive surprise, as the Ligue 1 giants added a guy by the name of Lionel Messi to the lineup this summer.
Messi sure is riding high, especially after winning the Copa America with Argentina earlier this year and bringing the trophy home for the fans to enjoy this month. Now, Messi wants to win another Champions League title, this time with PSG.
Paris Saint-Germain has never won it all, but they did make the final two years ago. Unfortunately for them, they suffered a loss to Bayern Munich in the final. Now, they're motivated to get the trophy to Paris. This could be their year.
Manchester City looks poised to get back to the final again
On the other side of things, Manchester City, with +380 odds, made it to its first final of the Champions League last year, but they suffered a stunning 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea. City were the favorites, but couldn't record the win.
Now, though, Man City looks even more dangerous this year thanks to the record-breaking deal which brought Jack Grealish to the Etihad Stadium from Aston Villa.
With Grealish now in the fold, the offensive attack for City is even better. This is troubling news not only for the rest of the English Premier League, but everyone in the Champions League as well.
City is in a position to get back to the final this year. Maybe this time around they'll win too. If we had to pick between PSG and City, we'll give the slight edge to the EPL club.
