Man City are the favourites at 4/1, which, rather like in the Premier League odds, is surprising given how they exited the competition rather tamely in the end to Lyon last season.
Liverpool should go well at 11/2, having been unlucky against Atletico Madrid last season. all the usual names are there and Bayern and PSG should go well again this year after contesting the final last time out. PSG are potentially a bit of value at 11/1. Of the bigger odds, Inter Milan could go well at 33/1 after getting to the Europa Final last season and having strengthened well in the transfer market.
The international break sees UEFA Nations League action as well as the Euro 2021 Play-Off Semi-Finals which involve the Republic of Ireland and Scotland. We'll have odds and previews a bit nearer the time for this set of matches.
