Which country does the 2021 Champions League winner come from?

So far, clubs from Spain (11) have won the title most often. England (6), Italy and Germany (4 each) as well as France, the Netherlands and Portugal (1 each) follow in the ranking. In 2020 there was a Franco-German final for the first time. The other top leagues weakened at the final tournament in Lisbon due to COVID-19. For the first time in the history of the Football Champions League, there were no teams from Spain, England or Italy in the semi-finals. That was the case for the last time in 1991, when the competition was still called the European Cup of National Champions. The bookmakers are not assuming this new scenario this season. England (rate 2.20) is in the favor of the bookies, followed by Germany (rate 3.25) and ahead of France (rate 6. 00). The Bundesliga and the Primera Division have the most round of 16 participants with 4 teams each.

One of the big favorites on the handle pot for bwin Bookies is defending champion Bayern Munich (odds 4.00). FCB 2020 won the title in an impressive manner. The Flick team won each of the 11 games in the premier class. Robert Lewandowski and Co. scored an outstanding 43 (!) Goals. Bayern followed up on these achievements this season. The group stage was mastered with 16 out of 18 possible points. After the first leg appearance at Lazio Rome (4: 1), the international press launched new hymns of praise. “It was a demonstration of German intensity and reliability,” she said Marca. With now 18 games (17 wins, one draw) in the back, the Bavarian steamroller is rolling (Sports) through Europe and is well on the way to winning the handle pot again after 2001, 2003 and 2020. Whether that succeeds in the end also depends a little on the luck factor.

Speaking of luck: Manchester City has been chasing it in the premier class for years. The newly rich Skyblues have never made it into the finals, let alone the coronation to champion. This season, Pep Guardiola's team is making another attempt at the coveted trophy. The group stage was not a stumbling block: 16 points! Now the team has to prove itself in the knockout games. Guardiola never got past the semi-finals with his teams in the past 8 years. If the long-awaited coup is finally to succeed, the Catalan must not deviate from his usual tactics in the decisive games and thus confront his team with systemic challenges. The title quota fell slightly to quota 3.50 after the 2-0 first leg win in Mönchengladbach.

Liverpool FC is also highly traded for the title (odds 8.00). The Reds, Champion 2019, were unlucky last season despite their superiority in the round of 16 against Atletico Madrid. Jürgen Klopp has already said that he and his men have by no means lost their hunger for success: “We feel as if we are in the middle of something, not at the end of something. We will attack the next title. " Even if things don't go that way in the league - you can't write off the Reds! Klopp was already in a Champions League final in 2013, 2018 and 2019. It wouldn't be much of a surprise if he managed to do that again.

And what about the other German clubs besides FC Bayern? Borussia Dortmund cavort in the wide area of ​​the secret favorites and in Erling Haaland has perhaps the most sought-after U21 goal scorer in its ranks, who does not cramp even under the great spotlight. Quota 19.00, if BVB should win the handle pot again after 1997. The move into the quarter-finals is firmly planned with 3 away goals in Seville. After the 2-0 defeat in the first leg against Liverpool, RB Leipzig (odds 151.00) have little chance of progressing and therefore a very high rate. Borussia Mönchengladbach (odds 251.00) are the least likely of all the eighth-final teams to believe that the big coup will be possible by the bookies.

Is there a new title holder?

13 clubs have been crowned Champions League winners so far. 7 of them are more or less possible candidates for the title this season: FC Bayern, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, ​​FC Liverpool, Juventus Turin, FC Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund. Nevertheless, there is a chance that there will be a new handle pot winner for the first time since 2012 (then Chelsea). Hopes naturally rest on Manchester City, Paris St. Germain and Atletico Madrid.
