Manchester City player Kevin De Bruyne
Can Kevin De Bruyne carry City to Champions League success?

We now know the Champions League groups for the 2020-21 competition and Betfair punters have been making their moves, pushing one Manchester club in and one Manchester club out...

"Manchester United are the big drifters after finding themselves up against last year's beaten finalists Paris St-Germain, fourth favourites at 12/113.0, RB Leipzig, Istanbul Basaksehir. From 19/120.0 United are out to 29/130.0."

Manchester City have assumed a familiar position as favourites in the Champions League betting following today's draw.

Punters are confident that City will be able to safely negotiate their way through a group containing Porto, Olympiakos and Marseille, making City 9/25.6 to lift the trophy next May.

Just a couple of ticks behind them in the betting are champions Bayern Munich who will face Atletico Madrid, Red Bull Salzburg, Lokomotiv Moscow.

And rounding out the favourites are Liverpool who have probably the toughest group of the trio with Ajax and Atalanta likely to provide a bit of competition in Group D. Midtjylland round out the quartet.
