Supercomputer predicts the winners of the Champions League – can Arsenal do it?

Opta Supercomputer rates Arsenal as the third-best team to win the UEFA Champions League this season behind Man City and Bayern Munich.

Arsenal’s chances of winning the prestigious 2023–24 UEFA Champions League have improved, with the club being ranked as the third-best favorite to do so by an AI-powered Opta supercomputer.

According to the forecasts, Arsenal will beat off established powerhouses like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and PSG.

On September 20, 2023, Arsenal will host PSV to open their campaign. They are placed in group b with Sevilla, PSC, and RC Lens.

The reigning champions Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Arsenal are the top three favorites to win the Champions League, according to the supercomputer’s estimates. Arsenal is regarded as a real threat and has an amazing win percentage estimate of 8.7%, but Manchester City and Bayern Munich are still at the top of the pack.

The group stage is where Arsenal’s tournament journey begins, and 89.9% of the time, they are predicted to do well there. Arsenal has a solid track record at this stage, having advanced to the knockout rounds in each of their previous 17 outings.

The supercomputer also predicts that Arsenal has a good probability of making the quarterfinals, with a 58.5% likelihood, underlining their capacity to go far in the competition.

In the simulations run, 17.9% of the outcomes show Arsenal winning the match. Gabriel Jesus, a former Manchester City striker noted for his impressive UEFA Champions League goal-scoring record (20 goals in 38 games across multiple campaigns), is a major component of Arsenal’s hopes.

The forecasts made by the supercomputer place Harry Kane’s new team, Bayern Munich, who has won the Champions League six times, in second place. Bayern is predicted to have a 64.8% chance of winning their group and a whopping 91.1% chance of making it to the round of 16. In 39.1% of simulations, they are also expected to reach the semifinals or farther, and they have a 10.9% probability of winning the competition, second only to Manchester City.

Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Napoli are the other front-runners for the Champions League title; Real Madrid has a 6% probability of winning, Inter Milan a 5.6% chance, and Napoli a 4.5% chance.

The supercomputer predicts that Group C would be extremely competitive, with Napoli maintaining a little advantage (42.0%) over Real Madrid (39.4%) in terms of winning the pool. Real Madrid, however, gains an advantage over Napoli as the season goes on, with superior chances of making the quarterfinals (42.7% vs. 42.1%), semifinals (24.4% vs. 21.9%), and final (12.5% vs. 10.3%).

Nearly half (49.1%) of the simulations predict Inter Milan, fresh off a great domestic start and a close match against Manchester City in last season’s final, to win Group D. Inter has a 75.7% chance of progressing to the round of 16 and a 12.2% chance of winning the Champions League.

The UEFA Champions League season will be interesting and competitive thanks to these forecasts from the Opta supercomputer, with Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Napoli all contending for the prized cup.
