It is no surprise to see defending champions Barcelona at the head of the betting for this season's Women's Champions League.
The Catalan giants, whose squad is loaded with Spanish World Cup winners, were 3-2 winners over Wolfsburgin last season's final, having also taken down Roma and Chelsea in the knockout phase.
They were pretty faultless in the group stage too, winning five of their six games and racking up 29 goals and they will reconvene with both Benfica and Rosengard in this season's group phase as well.
They are an experienced group with Ballon d'Or winner Aitana Bonmati at the heart of the team and they are the ones to beat.
No club has won more Women's Champions League titles than Lyon (eight) but the club have won the competition in just one of the last three seasons.
Last term was particularly disappointing as Lyon crashed out in the quarter-final phase, losing to Women's Super League giants Chelsea.
They reinforced their attacking options over the summer with the addition of former Reims ace Melchie Dumornay and, despite an injury crisis having hindered them since the beginning of last term, they should be a danger.
They have been drawn in one of the competition's weaker sections along with Slavia Prague, St Polten and SK Brann.
Following Arsenal's shock exit in qualifying, Chelsea are the only Women's Super League representatives in this campaign's Women's Champions League.
They open their campaign with a tricky contest away to Real Madrid but have been on fire domestically, starting the latest WSL campaign with five wins and a draw from six matches.
The squad underwent a bit of a revamp over the summer with Magdalena Eriksson and Pernille Harder departing but the likes of Mia Fishel and Sjoeke Nusken are excellent players for the now and for the future.
Chelsea were runners-up in the 2020-21 season and made the last four last campaign, having beaten Lyon in the quarter-finals before narrowly losing to Barcelona.
From Georgia Stanway to Lea Schuller, there are some real stars in this Bayern Munich Women's side and they could certainly be dark horses to lift the trophy.
In Chelsea pair Eriksson and Harder, they have bolstered their experience and they were unfortunate to exit at the quarter-final phase last season, losing 2-1 to Arsenal after establishing a 1-0 advantage in the first leg.
Along with Eintracht Frankfurt, they are one of two Frauen Bundesliga clubs competing in the competition this season, although they have been dealt a tough draw in Group C with Paris Saint-Germain, Roma and Ajax set to face them.
Given the excellent form of Roma, both Bayern Munich and PSG could be under threat in Group C in the Women's Champions League and the Parisians are the more likely to flop.
PSG edged past Manchester United in qualifying for the group stage but are one of the more inconsistent sides among Europe's elite and lost to Lyon in the league earlier this month.
The loan acquisition of Malawi star Tabitha Chawinga from Wuhan Jianghan University was a smart move but there is plenty of work to do if PSG are to challenge for the title in this season's Women's Champions League.
With the final of this season's Women's Champions League set to take place at the San Mames in Bilbao, Real Madrid will be eager for a big campaign.
Last term Las Blancas exited in the group stage but it was far from a disastrous campaign as they produced two wins, two draws and two defeats from games with Chelsea, PSG and Vllaznia.
Scotland midfielder Caroline Weir may be sidelined but last term's Liga F runners-up are not without their stars, including Colombian sensation Linda Caicedo.
Keeping pace with Barcelona domestically is no easy task but Las Blancas are improving and will hope they can lay down a marker in their opener with Chelsea.
