Who Will Be the Favorites to Win the 2024 Champions League? The Champions League is a big soccer competition where the best European clubs play each year. Last time, Manchester City won by beating Inter Milan in the final. Now, people are curious about which team could beat City in the new edition.
Let’s check out the top teams expected to win the 2024 Champions League.
Is Manchester City the Big Favorite to Win the 2024 Champions League?
The current champions, Manchester City, are expected to do well in the new Champions League. One big reason is their coach, Pep Guardiola, who is known as one of the best strategists in the world. He’s successful at making his teams play a certain way and is highly respected in his field.
Besides, Manchester City has a super-talented team with top-notch players like Erling Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne, Julián Álvarez, and Rodrigo Hernández.
In their first game on September 19, Manchester City showed their skills by coming back from being 1-0 down at halftime to beat Red Star Belgrade 3-1. This performance proves that they’re determined to not give any easy chances to their opponents. So, Manchester City looks set to have a great season again.
Real Madrid: The Most Successful Club in the CL
Real Madrid is definitely among the top teams expected to win the Champions League this season. They have a remarkable record with 14 wins in the competition. However, it’s important to note that the team might face challenges due to Karim Benzema leaving for Saudi Arabia and Vinicius Junior not being available, which could impact their performance.
Even with these changes, in their recent matches, Real Madrid showed their strength by winning 1-0 against Union Berlin and 3-2 against Napoli. This proves that they can still compete well and deserve to be considered as strong contenders for the Champions League title.
Bayern Munich: The Big Outsider of the C1 2024
The Bayern team hasn’t been very impressive in the last three seasons, largely because they were missing a standout striker, especially the Polish player Robert Lewandowski.
However, things might take a turn with the addition of Harry Kane to Bayern on August 12. This means that the team should be considered a serious contender in the new edition of the Champions League.
Their status as a favorite was further confirmed with a 4-3 victory against Manchester United in their first Champions League match.
The Unstoppable Force of PSG, FC Barcelona, and Arsenal
Even though Paris Saint-Germain, with stars like Messi, Neymar, and Mbappé, couldn’t win the European title last season (2022-2023), the new season is a fresh opportunity for them to show their skills on the European stage.
PSG has some new promising talents like Ugarte, Skriniar, Dembele, and Kolo Muani, all led by Kylian Mbappé. This combination gives them a good chance to challenge Manchester City and win the coveted Champions League title. Their first group match against Borussia Dortmund ended with a convincing 2-0 victory, showing their strong determination. Paris Saint-Germain is geared up to face any challenges and create a memorable chapter in its history. Clearly, they are considered one of the favorites to win the Champions League.
FC Barcelona is also in the mix, having dominated Antwerp with a 5-0 victory. Similarly, Arsenal showed their strength with a 4-0 win against PSV. The competition has started in an exciting way, and it’s clear that these clubs have a good chance and are among the favorites to win the Champions League, also known as the “Big Ears Cup.”
