Barcelona replace Manchester City as Champions League favourites

0

Barcelona have replaced Manchester City as Sky Bet’s favourites to win the Champions League after Pep Guardiola’s side were paired with Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

City will come up against the only side to beat them in the Premier League this season, having gone down 4-3 at Anfield in January, while Barca will meet outsiders Roma in the last eight.

That has seen the Catalans cut from 7/2 to 11/4 to lift the trophy, while City have drifted slightly, from 11/4 to 3/1.

Liverpool’s movement in the market is more significant, with their price going from 9/1 to 12/1 as Sky Bet rate them as outsiders to progress from the all-English tie.

Bayern Munich are now 7/2 (from 9/2) third favourites after being handed arguably the most favourable tie in Sevilla, who were considered the biggest-priced outsiders before Friday’s draw despite ousting Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are 9/2 to complete a hat-trick of Champions League triumphs as they face Juventus (11/1), who have been losing finalist in two of the last three campaigns.

Champions League outright odds:

  • Barcelona – 11/4
  • Manchester City – 3/1
  • Bayern Munich – 7/2
  • Real Madrid – 9/2
  • Juventus – 11/1
  • Liverpool – 12/1
  • Sevilla – 50/1
  • Roma – 50/1
