Is this finally PSG's year for Champions League glory?

In modern times, Ligue 1 and Paris Saint-Germain have become synonymous.

The French club have won seven of the last eight league titles, reigning unprecedented domination over their homeland.

Such superiority transpired when Qatari businessman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, took charge of the club back in 2011. Way over a billion euros has since been pumped into the squad, establishing a side that no other team in the division can compete with.

There has, however, been one piece missing from the PSG project - the Champions League. The club have never got their hands on Europe's most illustrious prize, with their eliminations in recent years creating an unwanted reputation of failure, within the French capital.

As we seem to say every season though, is this finally their year?

Story of the season so far

Matchday one of this season's Champions League could not have gone much better for PSG. They swept aside the 13-times victors in Real Madrid 3-0, with many dubbing this as a symbolic sign of a power shift between the two clubs.

The group stages were simply a breeze for the Parisians, keeping a clean sheet in all five of their victories. The only dropped points came at the Bernabeu, following a 2-2 draw with Zinedine Zidane's side. Having been 2-0 down though, with just ten minutes to play, PSG showcased their driven, winning desire.

Kylian Mbappe grabbed one, with the forward boasting five goals in the competition this season. PSG's attacking firepower was highlighted during the group games, with new signing Mauro Icardi hitting the ground running too. The dynamic duo scored ten goals combined during such fixtures, contributing to 58.8% of their team's strikes.

The knockout stages provided a stage for the other starman to shine though, with Neymar dazzling against Borussia Dortmund. The Brazilian scored both home and away against the German side, with PSG progressing 3-2 on aggregate. Again, they showed their ability to overcome diversity, having trailed 2-1 in the first leg.

Compared to recent years, they have looked much more resilient, particularly with their defensive shape. Idrissa Gueye has no doubt played his part in such a transformation.

PSG odds to win the Champions League

PSG's odds to win the Champions League this season have been relatively consistent.

They opened up with a pre-season price of 10/1, with the 3-0 victory over Real Madrid seeing such a price quickly drop to 7/1.

These odds stayed the same throughout the group stages, with the French club expectedly progressing with relative ease. Both they and Real Madrid topped the group, and not many would have backed against this, given their oppositions in Club Brugge and Galatasaray.

Prior to the draw on Friday afternoon, Thomas Tuchel's side still had odds of 7/1. After their matchup with Atalanta though, they've quickly been backed in to 11/2, making them the new third favourites to get their hands on the trophy.

Their opponents are one of the most exciting sides in Europe and the top scores in the Serie A this season. Punters will fancy PSG's chances in progressing to the semi-finals though, given the Italian's inexperience in this competition.

Should they progress, they will meet the winners of Leipzig v Atletico Madrid. Not the easiest of opposition by any means, but they have avoided the two favourites in Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

Prolonged break for the better or worse?

Unlike the majority of European teams, PSG have not been in action recently.

The Ligue 1 season was abruptly brought to a close in March, with the league standings finishing as they were. The defending champions were crowned once again, but it does mean Tuchel's side have not been active in other four months.

When they take to the CL in August, will this be seen as a negative or positive? It does allow them to prepare specifically for one match-up, with there being a much lesser risk of suffering injuries too.

It's a hard one to analyse though, and friendlies will likely be scheduled on PSG's behalf for preparations.

Champions League winner odds

As mentioned, PSG are the third favourites to win the 19/20 Champions League.

The two favourites in City and Bayern share a price of 3/1, with both clubs boasting this tag for the majority of the campaign. The latter seem to be a popular pick on social media, and given the form of top scorer Robert Lewandowski, we can't say we are too surprised.

Going beyond PSG and Barcelona are next in line at 7/1 with bet365. They drew 1-1 with Napoli away from home, and they haven't looked the force they once were this season.

Atletico Madrid are another La Liga side still in the competition, coming in with a lucrative price of 10/1. They are the favourites for their clash with RB Leipzig, and their price dropped from 12/1 when the draw was made.

See the following other team's odds below:

  • Atalanta = 12/1
  • Juventus = 14/1
  • Leipzig = 16/1
  • Real Madrid = 25/1
  • Napoli = 66/1
  • Lyon = 100/1
  • Chelsea = 250/1
