As the world gears up for the UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw to take place in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday, simulations via supercomputers have already begun in order to find out who will win the coveted continental crown this season.
Ajax, FC Barcelona, Porto and Juventus complete the rest of the quarter-finalists. And now, a forecasting expert website fivethirtyeight.com has predicted who will be the club to lift the Champions League in Madrid on June 1.
This is not good news for Manchester United fans specifically as the supercomputer predicts them to be knocked out at the quarter-final stage. Moreover, the worst part for Red Devils fans is that the system predicts Manchester City to win the Champions League this season.
FiveThirtyEight have rated the probability of all eight remaining sides reaching the semi-finals, final and winning the tournament.
Manchester United have been given just a 34 per cent chance of reaching the semis, an 11 per cent shot at reaching the final and only a four per cent chance of winning the Champions League.
