After taking the Premier League by storm, Guardiola will be eager to oversee a historic Champions League victory with Man City as well.
The Sky Blues are great value at 7/2 with Ladbrokes to rally to their maiden triumph in the competition under their esteemed Spanish coach.
Guardiola, of course, has the experience of lifting the trophy as a manager with Barcelona and helped Bayern Munich deep into the competition before too.
There is also top value in backing Liverpool, with Klopp’s attack-minded Reds seen at a highly promising 12/1 with Paddy Power to win outright.
It’s Barcelona who lead the way as favourites for outright glory at 11/4 with BetVictor. Unsurprisingly really, as they boast an always clinical Lionel Messi in their ranks.
Defending champions Real Madrid are regarded at 9/2 with Betfair to go all the way once again this season under the guidance of club legend Zinedine Zidane.
German giants Bayern Munich are always a threat too and are currently 4/1 with Betfred to lift the famous trophy for the sixth time in their history.
Italian powerhouse Juventus could be a potential danger at 12/1 with Coral, while Roma and Sevilla are seen as the biggest outsiders at 66/1 with Paddy Power to surprisingly prevail in the Kiev-based final.
The quarter-final first legs will be played on April 3rd and 4th, with the follow up second legs falling on April 10th and 11th.
