On May 26th next year, all eyes will turn to Kiev in Ukraine for the Champions League final which is hotly tipped to become one of the most interesting Champions League finals in recent years. Picking a team to win this year’s Champions League is tough, with Real Madrid waning, cash-rich PSG dominating and stalwarts like Barcelona and Bayern Munich faltering early on, this could very well be the year of the underdog. If you want to bet on it and get some decent odds, here are the underdogs which you should be looking to back this year.

Tottenham Hotspur

Under the project which Mauricio Pochettino has built at Spurs, the North London side have finished 3rd and 2nd respectively in the last 2 Premier League campaigns. Despite stumbling of late domestically, Spurs’ emphatic home and away wins against Dortmund, plus a draw at the Bernabeu and a convincing 3-1 win at home to champions Real Madrid, Europe has sat up and taken notice of Harry Kane and co. Whether or not Spurs can actually launch an attack on the Champions League itself remains to be seen but they’ve certainly started off in fine style after topping the group of death.

Odds: 16/1

Juventus

Juventus haven’t won this title since 1995 and despite finishing in second place 5 times since then, Juventus have not been able to turn their finals appearances into successes. They may have been finalists in last year’s Champions League but with the emergence of teams like Manchester City as the hot favourites, Juventus are at long odds to grab the trophy this year. Juve have been incredible dominant in Serie A for the last 3 years and for the first time in a long time, the team sits in 3rd place domestically behind Inter Milan and Napoli. If the Old Lady are to buck their Champions League trend, then perhaps this could be the year to do it.

Odds: 18/1

Chelsea

Chelsea is a greta outside favourite for this year’s Champions League winners, the Chelsea team is full of winners who know exactly what it takes to lift this kind of trophy. Antonio Conte’s men galloped to the Premier League title last year and the additions which have come in during the summer have further strengthened this already formidable outfit. With top 4 domestically becoming harder each year, Chelsea will no doubt have their eyes fixed firmly on the prize of winning this season’s Champions League title.

Odds: 20/1
