2/1 For City To Draw Bayern In Champions League Semis

With the Champions League draw taking place on Friday, the tie everyone is hoping for is Manchester City against Bayern Munich. William Hill are offering 2/1 that tie comes out of the hat on Friday.

“Should Bayern and City be drawn together in the semi-finals, that would provide two incredible ties and it looks a much more likely 2/1 than City drawing Real or Atletico,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

With Pep Guardiola taking over from Manuel Pellegrini from the start of next season, William Hill are predicting whether he will take any of his former cohorts from either Barcelona or Bayern to the Etihad. City are 6/4 to sign Thiago Alcantara and 11/4 to sign Dani Alves. It is 5/1 they sign Thomas Muller and 6/1 to sign Messi.
