The 2021-22 UEFA Champions League draw is in, and finalists Chelsea and Manchester City face tough roads in their hopes to get back to the title game. Reigning champion Chelsea is in a group with Juventus, which eliminated the Blues in the group stage when they last tried to defend a title in 2013. Meanwhile, defending Premier League champion Manchester City was drawn into a group that includes tournament favorite Paris Saint-Germain, now featuring Lionel Messi. Bayern Munich, the 2020 champion, also is expected to be in the mix for the title along with Premier League heavyweights Manchester United and Liverpool.  

The UEFA Champions League kicks off Sept. 14, and the final will be played on May 28 at Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Caesars Sportsbook lists PSG as the +300 favorite in its latest 2021-22 UEFA Champions League futures odds, followed by Manchester City (+350).

Top 2021-22 Champions League predictions 

Green is supremely confident that a team from England will win be crowned champions of the UEFA Champions League at +100 odds. The Premier League is the most competitive club competition in the world, and the four teams in the Champions League are still the clear cream of the crop. Two of the past three finals have pitted English teams against each other, and all four EPL representatives have only gotten better. Manchester City is the reigning Premier League champion and added Jack Grealish to a team that already includes the world's best midfielder in Kevin De Bruyne to operate the smooth-running machine.         

Chelsea has been a transformed team since manager Thomas Tuchel took over in late January. The Blues beat City three times in a six-week span last season, culminating in May's Champions League final, and added top striker Romelu Lukaku. Forgotten in all this is Manchester United, which was second in the league and has added key pieces including superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the transfer window. In addition, 2020 EPL champion Liverpool is finally healthy after it was ravaged by injuries and finished third last year. Liverpool has six Champions League titles, second-most all-time, its most recent being in 2019.
