Champions League 2019/20 winner predicted by supercomputer ahead of group stage draw | Football | Sport


Real Madrid will win their fifth Champions League in seven years if BT Sport’s supercomputer is anything to go by.

The Champions League draw takes place today with Europe’s elite waiting to find out who they will battle in the group stage.

Premier League sides Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham will all be in the draw.

But BT Sport’s The Script, which predicted the full season, expects just three of those to get through.

Tottenham will be dumped out in the group stage while Premier League champions Manchester City wave goodbye to European football at the round of 16.

Real Madrid will beat them 7-5 on aggregate though Chelsea and Liverpool will see off Borussia Dortmund and FC Salzburg respectively.

Real Madrid go on to beat Chelsea while Barcelona dispatch Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

That leaves an El Clasico in the semi-final with Real Madrid ending Barcelona’s 37-game unbeaten Champions League home record with a 3-0 win at the Nou Camp.

Bayern Munich will have seen off the likes of Atletico Madrid, PSG and Juventus in the other half of the draw to reach the final in Istanbul.

And The Script believes Real Madrid, who were beaten by Ajax last season, will beat Bayern 3-2 in the final.

‘The Script’ was generated using the help of football data and analysis experts Opta, Google and Squawka, picking the result of every match as well as key awards such as the Golden Boot and Golden Glove.

And Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp knows it will be difficult for his side to retain their Champions League crown.

He said: “I will have no problem with it [reaching the final] if it happens again, but at this moment I am not too sure it will.

“We have the same chance like everyone else, but that is all, and I don’t see us, the English teams, dominating. I really think a lot of teams have a good chance.”
