The Champions League group stage is over and the remaining teams move into the knockout stage as the road to the Ataturk Stadium continues.

Liverpool won last season’s final with a 2-0 success against Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

But who are the favourites this season? Goal takes a look at the contenders.

Who are the favourites to win the Champions League?

Manchester City are 11/4 favourites to win the Champions League with bet365 as they look to add European glory to their domestic success.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won the Premier League in each of the last two seasons but have not progressed past the quarter-finals of the Champions League in any of the previous three editions.

City qualified from a relatively straightforward group with ease but face a tricky last-16 tie against Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich are 3/1 with bet365 to consolidate their recent consistency in the tournament with a sixth Champions League title, having been drawn against Chelsea in the last-16.

The German side have won Bundesliga seven times in a row and reached the semi-finals or better of the Champions League in five of those seasons, winning it once, and made headlines this season with a stunning 7-2 victory at Tottenham in their second group match.

PSG are priced at 9/2 to win their maiden Champions League after dominating French football since 2013.

Despite all their domestic titles, PSG have never got past the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier club competition and but did get past the last-16 for the first time in three seasons this time around.

Barcelona can be backed at 7/1 to win their first Champions League since 2015 after being one of the most consistent performers in the tournament over the last 12 years.

The Catalan giants have won it three times and reached the semi-finals a further five times, including last season when they surrendered a 3-0 first-leg lead to lose on aggregate against Liverpool.

Barca got through what was dubbed this season's 'group of death', qualifying ahead of Borussia Dortmund and Inter, and must navigate past Napoli for a place in the last eight.

Who are the Champions League underdogs?

Three-time runners-up Atletico Madrid are rated 14/1 to finally break the Champions League.

Diego Simeone's men have seemingly rediscovered the form and style that saw them reach the final in 2014 and 2016 after beating holders Liverpool 4-2 on aggregate in the last-16. 

Juventus could prove a popular bet at 16/1 after impressing in last term’s tournament before losing to Ajax in the quarter-finals, with Cristiano Ronaldo picking up where he left off at Real Madrid.

The Portuguese forward has not quite hit the heights of his last-16 hat-trick last season, though, with just two goals in the Champions League so far this time around.

RB Leipzig are also 16/1 to win the Champions League in just their second-ever attempt, having lost just one of their six matches on their way to topping Group G.

They also reached the quarter-finals at the expense of Tottenham after a 4-0 win on aggregate, barely breaking a sweat to see off Jose Mourinho's men.

Who are the Champions League outsiders?

Atalanta are 20/1 to win the Champions League after an 8-4 aggregate win over Valencia in their last-16 first leg, with tougher tests likely to come for the Serie A side.

Real Madrid are 40/1 to make it five Champions League crowns in the last seven seasons.

Their recent success came under the tutelage of Zinedine Zidane, who won three consecutive European titles before leaving in May 2018, only to return to the club in March 2019.

The Frenchman has won 26 of his 39 games in the competition as manager but faces a tough test to get past Man City in the last-16 after a 2-1 home defeat in the first leg.

Elsewhere, Lyon are 80/1 whilst Napoli are 100/1, with Chelsea 500/1 following a heavy first-leg defeat in the last-16.
