5 golf equipment contemplating sponsoring Europe’s greatest award
When it comes to European football, there is no bigger prize than the Champions League, and once again the continent’s top clubs are fighting for the prestigious trophy.
Here we take a look at five strong competitors worth supporting. You have the talent to go the legendary way and to get the legendary trophy on May 29th in the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.
The reigning European champions Bayern Munich will have many supporters again this season, starting with a team that was there and made it. The Bavarian giants who played sports betting with Betfair on November 4th Available are the favorites that are at the forefront of the competition.
Head coach Hansi Flick was able to secure the Champions League title last season after replacing Nico Kovac at the Allianz Arena. Flick has a host of talented players, but star striker Robert Lewandowski will once again be a key figure if Bayern are to go all the way. The Polish striker is also one to look out for in the top goalscoring market in the competition.
Manchester City are a high profile team that have not yet achieved European fame. It hopes this is the year they finally get their hands on the coveted trophy. Manager Pep Guardiola is widely regarded as one of the best in the business and knows what it takes to win the Champions League. He led former club Barcelona to the title in 2009 and 2011, beating Manchester United in both cases.
City is a fascinating price at 4-1 on the direct market, especially when you consider that they struck a cheap draw against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the last 16 of the tournament. Citizens got off to a shaky start to their Premier League campaign but they seem to be back on track in recent weeks and building towards the end of the season. Star player Kevin De Bruyne will be the key man if City is to advance into the final stages of the competition.
As one of the most successful clubs in European Cup / Champions League history (they have won the trophy six times), it is no surprise that Liverpool are fighting for the crown again. Coach Jürgen Klopp, a team that stormed the Premier League title last season, has become one of the game’s most sought-after managers.
The Reds, who are 6/1 in the bet, have already won the Champions League under Klopp (2019) and will appreciate their chances of penetrating beyond their last 16 opponents, RV Leipzig, and deep into the knockout phase.
Paris St. Germain
Last season runner-up, Paris Saint-Germain, perhaps better known in football circles as PSG, were on the verge of realizing his dream of European glory. They were beaten in the 2020 final by an impressive team from Bayern Munich, and coach Thomas Tuchel has moved on since then.
Mauricio Pochettino is now the man at the top and his first Champions League role will be to get past Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona in the last 16 years. PSG are 11/1 to win the title and if they can beat the Blaugrana then expect those odds to increase significantly for this talented squad that starred Neymar, Marco Verratti and Kylian Mbappé.
At 12/1, Juventus could be seen as one of the dark horses to finally get their hands on a European Cup, having last lifted the cup in the 1995/96 season. Juve face a real challenge this season to defend their Serie A title but that could play in their favor. Juventus have been driving to Scudetto for so long that they may be a bit more battle-tested this season. With Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo in their ranks, Juve cannot be written off and they expect the Turin giants to at least reach the semi-finals of this year’s competition.
