Champions League 2018 Favorites
Who are the favorites to win this year’s Champions league trophy? The onlinedailys team believes the following clubs will be involved in the final part of the competition.
- Real Madrid
- Manchester City
Current holders will be the outright favorites. Although Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo are gone, they still retain the core of the team that won for the past 3 seasons. The experience cannot be undermined. Juventus has always been in the equation but usually falls off at the final hurdle. Cristiano Ronaldo gives them that edge.
Barcelona will always be in the mix of the favorites. Manchester City is expected to go all the way having swept away all English teams last season. PSG will have the attacking verve of Mbappe and Neymar to rely on.
