American data analysts FiveThirtyEight have worked out who are the favourites to get to the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League final, and then to go on and win it.

According to them, Manchester City are strong favourites for the Champions League, with local rivals Manchester United also enjoying favourite status in the Europa League.

AS Roma and PSG will be hoping for some upsets, with both set to struggle according to the data.

Surprisingly, the likes of PSG have been rated to have a lesser chance of winning the Champions League this season as compared to Chelsea.

Check out the ratings below:

Europa League

4. AS Roma - Final: 26% Win: 11%
3. Villarreal - Final: 45% Win: 19%
2. Arsenal - Final: 55% Win: 26%
1. Manchester United - Final: 74% Win: 45%

Champions League

4. PSG - Final: 19% Win: 8%
3. Chelsea - Final: 47% Win: 17%
2. Real Madrid - Final: 53% Win: 20%
1. Manchester City - Final: 81% Win: 55%

The quest for European dominance is surely pretty wide open with clubs from England, Spain, Italy and France fighting it out for the best prizes in club football.

Will English teams be able to win both the European competitions or will they falter at the hands of the others, only time will tell.
