The 2017/18 Champions League has reached the business end of the tournament and we are now looking towards the final, which will take place on Saturday 26th May 2018.
The Champions League final will be played in Kiev, Ukraine at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium. This arena is the second largest stadium in Eastern Europe and the new construction, which saw a roof added in 2011, means it is one of the most impressive football stadiums in the world.
In addition to hosting the 2017/18 Champions League final, the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium has previously hosted the 2012 European Championship final between Spain and Italy. The question is, which teams will contest the Champions League final?
1. Favorites to Qualify for 2018 Champions League Final
Manchester City have been enjoying a fantastic season in the Premier League and should have the title wrapped up well before the end of the campaign. This means Pep Guardiola and his players will have plenty of time to rest and prepare for the Champions League.
If Manchester City continue their current form, they have every chance of reaching the Champions League final and can be backed at 2.40 to do just that.
The favourites to meet them in the final are Barcelona, available at 1.99. The Spanish giants were not at their best in the matches against Chelsea but still came through 4-1 on aggregate. That’s an ominous sign for the rest of the teams in the tournament and with Lionel Messi in their ranks, Barcelona could go all the way and are 3.60 to win the 2017/18 Champions League.
When discussing the main contenders for the Champions League, it is impossible to leave out Real Madrid. The two-time defending champions may not have been at their best domestically this season but their victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Round of 16 shows they remain a real threat in this competition.
Real Madrid are 2.61 to reach the final and 5.50 to win the tournament.

2. Who Else Can Win UEFA Champions League Final?
Only teams from Spain and Italy have played in the previous four Champions League finals and therefore it would be foolish to write off the chances of Juventus. The Italian champions overcome Tottenham Hotspur in a tricky Round of 16 tie and can defend well and create chances for their exciting forward duo of Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala.
Juventus are out at 4.84 to reach the 2017/18 Champions League final and 11.00 to lift the trophy.
You must go back to the 2012/13 Champions League final to find the last time a team outside Spain and Italy reached the final. It was an all-German affair won by Bayern Munich and the champions of Germany look strong once again this season.
From the remaining teams, Bayern Munich looks best equipped in terms of ability and experience to reach the UEFA Champions League final and are priced at 5.00 with Bet365 to win the tournament outright plus 2.56 to reach the final.
So if we would have to make a shot, our Champions League Final predictions would be those four teams below:
