Europe’s biggest football clubs are fighting it out for the richest prizes in the game as continental football reaches the business end of the season. There are now just eight teams remaining in each of UEFA’s competitions but there can be only one winner in each. 

Fans from across Europe and the wider world will be using websites like Hesgoal football to catch all of the action this April and May, but who are the bookies backing to win silverware? Here are the favourites to win each UEFA club competition this season, according to Oddschecker.

UEFA Champions League

The biggest trophy of them all is the UEFA Champions League and now eight of Europe’s finest must compete in the quarter finals, semi finals and final to decide a winner. According to bookmakers, the favourites to win this season’s edition at the time of writing are Manchester City. The Premier League side have been inching ever closer to achieving their Abu Dhabi owners’ ultimate goal every year, having been beaten finalists last season. Many believe that this will be the year for Pep Guardiola’s side but they will face stiff competition from the likes of Liverpool and Bayern Munich, who are second and third favourites according to Oddschecker.

UEFA Europa League

There is a clear favourite in UEFA’s second biggest competition and that team is of course Barcelona. Their newly appointed coach and club legend Xavi seems to have found the right formula and has now got his squad firing on all cylinders. They have reached the quarter finals of this competition and also enjoyed pummelling their greatest rivals in La Liga Real Madrid 4-0 recently. There is a huge gap between the Catalan side and their nearest competitors, RB Leipzig from the German Bundesliga and Atalanta from Serie A according to the bookies, and Barca fans will surely be confident of putting this trophy into the huge collection at the Camp Nou.

UEFA Europa Conference League

Despite the cynicism of some fans, the clubs involved in the inaugural edition of UEFA’s new third string competition will surely be keen to win it. As things stand, Jose Mourinho’s Roma are favourites to lift the trophy in May. This is understandable given the winning pedigree the Portuguese has shown throughout his career. Marseille from Ligue 1 and Leicester City from the Premier League are also high on the list of favourites but everything points to a victory parade in Rome come the early summer.

Regardless of who ends up winning the three competitions, the rest of the matches played are sure to be fascinating, high quality encounters, well worth watching for any fan of good football.
