- 12 of the last 12 winners came from either England, Italy, Spain and Germany
- 11 of the last 12 winners finished in the first two in their league the previous season
- 10 of the last 12 winners had been in a Champions League Final in the previous 10 years
- 5 of the last 6 winners finished second in their respective leagues the season before
Believe it or not the above trends when applied to the whole of the Champions League field leaves just the one team – BARCELONA!
The loss of Neymar will be huge for them but they could benefit from Real Madrid dominating La Liga as it might open up the possibility that it would take something out of them. Available at 13-2 generally, BARCELONA still have the strength in depth to go very far in the competition and that should give us a very good trading position to work from.
Suggested Bet (Scale 1-10 points)
