What factors could dictate which team wins the UEFA Champions League 2023?

The biggest factor that could dictate which team wins the Champions League is the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The World Cup took place in November and December, and it was the first-ever winter World Cup.

Teams competing in the Champions League took a six to eight-week break from playing club football during that time. The break and the exhaustion some players are currently showing could greatly affect the outcome of the UCL.

A lot of the teams playing in the round of 16 are in poor form right now. A few big clubs could go out of the competition in the round.

Who won the 2022 edition of the UCL?

Last season’s Champions League final featured England’s Liverpool playing Spain’s Real Madrid. Liverpool played in their third UCL final in five seasons, but Real Madrid won the match by a score of 1-0. Each of the last three finals ended 1-0.

Real Madrid are the all-time winningest team in Champions League history with 14 titles. The last four finals were won by four different teams (Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Real Madrid).

Who will win the 2023 Champions League Final?

Manchester City are the favourite to win the tournament, but they have been the bookmakers’ favourite before and failed to win the competition. The Sky Blues reached the final just one time, in 2020-21, and lost 1-0 to Premier League rival Chelsea.

The FIFA World Cup and a lack of time off for top-level players are producing a lot of fatigue for the clubs remaining in the Champions League tournament. The team that wins the competition could be one the fans didn’t expect to lift the trophy.

According to FiveThirtyEight, Bayern Munich surprisingly have the best odds of winning the final at 25%. Man City have a 20% chance of winning the tournament. No club outside of those two have a chance better than 7% to win the tournament.
