Return of Champions League: Chelsea Slight Outsiders in Paris!

Chelsea are the fourth favourites to win the Champions League behind Bayern, Real Madrid and Barcelona and their quest to lift the trophy again continues against PSG on Tuesday. William Hill make PSG the slight favourites for the first leg at 9/5, although it is Chelsea who are the 4/9 favourites to qualify for the next round of the competition.

It is 20/1 for an all British final while Chelsea are 4/5 favourites to be the British side to progress furthest in the competition.

“It looks as though this tie could be a repeat of last season’s between the two sides, where PSG take the lead in the first leg before succumbing to Chelsea on aggregate,” said William Hill spoeksman Joe Crilly.


After the controversy surrounding Adam Rooney’s “ghost goal”, William Hill are offering 5/1 that goal line technology is in place in the SPL for the start of the next season.
