This evening, the Champions League returns after its Covid-19 enforced suspension.

Nothing is normal, of course. Not least the look of our forecasts:

KDR, ICL, TFI an LIN are all minnows of the global game. Yet they get to play on the same heady Champions League days/nights as Manchester City, Real Madrid, Juventus and Lyon. That’s right – the 2020-2021 Champions League has begun, even while the 2019-2020 one hasn’t even finished yet.

Juventus have a 1-0 deficit to overturn, and they’ll likely do it, but may need extra time to force overall victory. Man City are 58% to beat Real Madrid, too.

Jean-Louis Foulley has as always produced his forecasts – see his recent presentation on them, too, here.
