English Sides On The Drift To Win Champions League

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are the 5/2 joint favourites with William Hill to win the Champions League after the draw handed them a seemingly simple route through to the next round. Barcelona’s odds of winning the competition have drifted from 9/2 to 5/1 after they drew Manchester City in the next round. Chelsea are the shortest priced English side and they are 8/1 from 6/1 to win the competition.

Manchester City have drawn the toughest last 16 opponent and they are 11/8 to qualify for the next round with Barcelona 8/15. City are 14/1 to win the competition, eased out from 12/1.

Arsenal are the outsiders of the three sides and are 20/1.

“City’s chances of progressing further than they ever have before have taken a hit after drawing Barca but it looks as though Chelsea and Arsenal should have no problem making it through to the hat for the next round,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

It is 20/1 for an all English final.
