The Premier League certainly remains the strongest soccer league in the world, so it is probable that Champions League Final betting will involve at least one Premiership squad. Nevertheless, Europe is filled with talented soccer clubs and Champions League betting fans should not overlook the potential of clubs from countries like Spain, Italy, and Germany.
Champions League Final betting in 2008 featured two Premier League clubs, Manchester United and Chelsea, while a third club, Liverpool reached the semi-finals. The success of Premier League teams last year clearly highlighted the league’s dominance in world soccer, and there is no reason to assume this dominance will not be reflected in the 2009 Champions League Final betting odds. Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal all boast extremely talented rosters and any one of the four clubs could eventually end up in the Champions League Final betting matchup. In fact, it is even possible that Champions League Final betting will involve two Premier League teams once again, and there is little reason to believe Manchester United and Chelsea cannot return to the Final. Nevertheless, Liverpool, which reached the 2006 Champions League Final betting matchup, and Arsenal should not be overlooked by Champions League betting fans.
Teams from Spain’s Primera Liga also have a good shot at eventually reaching the Champions League Final betting matchup. Barcelona and Real Madrid are undoubtedly the top two squads from Spain and both are loaded with international superstars. In fact, Barcelona reached the semi-finals last year, where they were edged out 0-1 by Manchester United. There is little question that many Champions League betting fans will be pulling for these two teams to succeed and reach the Champions League Final betting matchup in order to prevent another all-Premier League game. Teams from Italy are not generally as strong as those from Spain, but Italian teams will have extra incentive to reach the 2009 Champions League Final betting matchup because it is being held in Rome. Teams like Inter Milan and Juventus may not have quite as many superstars on their rosters as teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid, but the top Italian squads have a history of performing well in the Champions League. Furthermore, the Champions League Final betting matchup could feature a team from another country, such as Germany. The top team from Germany is unquestionably Bayern Munich, and this squad appears poised for at least a deep run into the knockout stages.
