Following their convincing aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last-16, Real Madrid are among the favourites yet again to lift a third-consecutive Champions League title come the final in Kiev on May 26.

Los Blancos were originally touted as frontrunners for the Europe’s most prized silverware but a series of poor performances in both LaLiga and the Copa del Rey threatened to derail the reigning Spanish Champion’s season.

However, Zinedine Zidane’s men are much fancied to defend their crown after a comfortable win over PSG, who were tipped to go deep into the competition this season.

As it stands, Europe’s main bookmakers currently have Real Madrid at 5/1 to win the Champions League, second only to Premier League leaders Manchester City are currently favourites at 4/1 to take home the title.
