Pep Guardiola's side is the highest rated side in the predictions standings. They're given a 94% chance of making it into the round of 16 and a 22% chance of emerging as champions.
Manchester City started their UCL campaign with an emphatic win against RB Leipzig, however, they were dealt with a big blow when they lost to Leo Messi's led Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Manchester City seems to have the quality squad and the zeal needed to win this year's title.
As such, we agree with the supercomputer on this one.
According to the supercomputer, 2020 winners, Bayern Munich has an 18% chance of winning the Champions League this season.

Though Bayern Munich is currently in a very hot form, SportsBlitz.ng doesn't think the Bavarians will win their second Champions League title in 3 years.
The German giants haven't faced any strong opposition just yet, as such, SportsBlitz.ng doesn't seem to rate their winning chances.
Liverpool Football Club
For Jurgen Klopp's side, the supercomputer gives them a 96% chance of making it to the round of 16 and an 11% chance of emerging as winners.

Liverpool is in very hot form. The sudden rise in the form of Mo Salah and some of its other players will serve as a major boost for the Reds as they hope to reclaim the trophy they won in 2019.
As such, SportsBlitz.ng thinks Liverpool deserves a higher rating than 11%.
Coming in at a surprising 4th place in the predictions table is Ajax. The supercomputer pegs their winning chances at 10%
Though Ajax is currently unbeaten in the Champions League, SportsBlitz.ng doesn't think that Ten Hag's men will win the competition.
Just like in the past few years Ajax has always started the competition brightly. However, they hardly make it to the semis.
Here's an illustration of the predictions below:

It's really surprising to see that clubs like Real Madrid, Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain, and FC Barcelona.
As usual, it's worthy to note that these predictions don't determine the eventual winners of the competition. It's just like any other predictions made based on certain determiners. As such, it shouldn't be used for gambling purposes.
