Champions League: Supercomputer names favourite club to win trophy this season

A supercomputer, composed of a team of data experts at ABC News’s FiveThirtyEight, has predicted Manchester City as the current favourites to lift the UEFA Champions League this season, after a strong start to life in both the Premier League and the European top-flight tournament so far.

Champions League joint-top scorer Erling Haaland has added an extra dimension to Man City’s attack this season.

The Norwegian has already scored 17 goals across all competitions for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Man City will face Copenhagen on Wednesday in their next Champions League tie at Etihad Stadium.

However, the Supercomputer has now given Guardiola’s side a 22% chance of winning the competition this season, coming ahead of Bayern Munich (20%, second position) and Paris Saint-Germain (13%, third position) to claim the top spot.

Also given a 37% chance to reach the final this term, the Citizens of course only did so on one previous occasion, losing out to Chelsea in the 2021 final in Porto.

The next Premier League team on the list is Liverpool in fifth position with just 7% chance, while both Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have been given just a 2% chance of being declared Europe’s best side this season.
