Qualification for the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League is underway. The first matchweek is completed. PSG and Red Bull Salzburg shined. Liverpool and Real Madrid came away with poor results. Still, there’s a lot of soccer to be played.
2019-20 UEFA Champions League Title Odds
The following are 2019-20 UEFA Champions League title odds.
There was some real movement in the odds when the Group Stage draw results occurred. With another cakewalk to the knockout rounds, Manchester City improved from +450 to +300. The “Group of Death” didn’t hurt Barcelona (they actually moved from +600 to +500), but Borussia Dortmund (+3300 to +4000) and Inter Milan (+5000 to +6000) fell. RB Leipzig’s early season form and winnable group saw their odds leap from +8000 to +5000. Lyon also gets a Group G bump from +12500 to +6000.
After the first matchweek, despite a poor result at Napoli, Liverpool’s odds did not move. However, Napoli jumped from +6000 to +2500 (settled down, settle down, they’re not winning the UCL). Red Bull Salzburg’s hammering of Genk improved their odds from +40000 to +8500. The always underrated Ajax go from +8000 to +5000.
