A supercomputer has predicted which clubs have the best chance of winning the Champions League, including Manchester United and Chelsea.

Manchester City are the favorites to win the Champions League ahead of Bayern Munich and Chelsea, according to a supercomputer.

The Citizens, who lost 1-0 to Chelsea in the final last season, boast a 16% chance of winning the competition. That’s at least 5% better than any other club. Chelsea look to have a decent shot as well, with the third-highest overall rating at 10%.

Swapping Juventus for Manchester United, meanwhile, has boosted Cristiano Ronaldo’s hopes of a sixth title. That said, the Red Devils only have a 5% chance of glory according to FiveThirtyEight’s supercomputer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have a 79% chance of reaching the Round of 16. Their hopes of reaching the quarter-finals are rated at 45%, 22% for the semi-finals, and 10% for the final itself.

The American data specialist website also rated Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain’s hopes of winning the Champions League at 4%, the 10th best overall rating.
