Man City underline Champions League Favourite’s Tag with 2-1 win over PSG

Manchester City underlined their credentials as Champions League favourites when they defeated PSG 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night. 

Pep's team was outstanding and simply ran the Parisians ragged. Not many teams go a goal down to the Paris team and come back and beat them, but that's exactly what City did. 

Online bookmakers Dafabet make City their 3/1 favourites to win their first-ever Champions League trophy. 

German Champions Bayern Munich is second in the betting at 4/1, with Chelsea, Liverpool, and PSG all at 6/1. 

As well as offering odds on the Champions League, you can also find a whole host of other competitive markets on offer from Dafabet on all the top football leagues around Europe. 

City are the favourites for a reason though, and Dafabet also has them leading their market to win the English Premier League. 

To win the Premier League, Pep's team is now just 8/11, with Chelsea their closest rivals at 2/1.

Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea is proving to be a thorn in City's side though. 

The London Blues top the English Premier League, and they have ensured that when City has a Champions League match on the horizon, City can't afford to take their eye off the ball. 

The Treble Is On For Man City 

What Manchester United fans know as the real treble is still a possibility for Manchester City. 

The Light Blues are out of the EFL Cup, but they are still in with a great chance of winning the Premier League, Champions League, and the forthcoming FA Cup. 

Cross-town rivals Manchester United did this treble in 1999 when the recently departed Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer scored the winner in stoppage-time to give United their historic Champions League win over Bayern Munich.

If City is to win this version of the treble this season, it really would be a kick in the teeth for the United fans who have had to watch as the Blue half of Manchester goes from strength to strength. While their team goes backward! 

City can focus on the Premier League for next few weeks 

With top spot in their Champions League group now assured, City can focus on the Premier League again for the next few weeks. 

Chelsea is 3 points clear of Man City, and they know that the Londoners are very strong this season. City can't afford to drop points, as the chances are Chelsea won't. 

If Tuchel's team does manage to get a 6 points plus lead over City, it could be very difficult to claw back. 

Going in City's favour though is the fact they've already made the difficult away trips to Spurs, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Man Utd. 

In the new year, the fixture list will probably favour Pep's team, which is why it's crucial they don't let Chelsea get away from them. 

Another factor going in City's favour is the fact that Liverpool will lose both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to the Africa Cup of Nations in the new year. 

The pair look set to be away from the Premier League for around one month, and that will deeply hurt Klopp's team. 

From the football neutral perspective, that is desperately disappointing, as this season is shaping up to be a cracker.
