MANCHESTER CITY are finally set to win their first-ever Champions League crown, according to a supercomputer.
Since being taken over by their mega-rich owners in 2008, the Etihad club have wanted to win it all.
In that time, City have won the Premier League four times, the FA Cup twice and the League Cup a staggering five times.
But the one trophy that's always eluded them, much like fellow super-wealthy giants Paris Saint-Germain, is the Champions League.
Man City take on Porto in their last-16 tie as they look to take a step towards the holy grail.
And according to FiveThirtyEight, Pep Guardiola's side are finally set to break their European Cup duck.
The numbers suggest absolutely no-one will put up a fight in their determined quest for 'Old Big Ears' either.
Incredibly, City have a 37 PER CENT chance to winning the Champions League crown such is their current dominance.
For context, their closest rivals are Barcelona with just a 13 per cent shot of getting their hands on the trophy.
In what is almost-certain to be Lionel Messi's final season at the Nou Camp, the club will surely go all-out to win their first European crown since 2014-15.
