Manchester City into 13/8 favourites after Champions League draw

Manchester City are clear 13/8 favourites to win the Champions League for the first time after the last 16 draw was made on Monday.

Pep Guardiola’s side cruised through the group stage, and while they’d have preferred to avoid Paris Saint-Germain, there weren’t really any other opponents they could’ve faced who would have worried them. 

Manchester City’s position at the top of the Champions League betting has been strengthened even further after being paired with Leipzig, but we wouldn’t begrudge them the trophy having benefitted from numerous failures over the years.

Though they’ve been bolstered by four of the tournament favourites drawing each other in the last 16, with Liverpool paying the price for finishing second in their group, being drawn against Real Madrid, and PSG being similarly punished with a tie against Bayern Munich.

Two of those clubs will be absent from the quarter-final draw, while one of Benfica and Club Brugge will be in attendance, who the big hitters you dare say would be keen to face.

Newcastle close in on Top 4

One team we certainly don’t want anywhere near Istanbul on 10th June is Napoli, having offered 150/1 when they were drawn with Liverpool in the group stages. 

They were even odds-against at 11/10 to qualify from the group and 7/1 to win it before a ball was kicked, but that demolition job against Liverpool presented a very different Napoli to what was expected by many.

Neither Ajax nor Rangers were able to offer any resistance, and as a reward, they’ve been handed a decent-looking tie in the form of Eintracht Frankfurt with Luciano Spalletti’s in-form team looking capable of going deep in the competition.

Erling Haaland is bet365’s 15/8 favourite to finish top goalscorer this season – which may be much bigger if neither Mohamed Salah’s Liverpool or Kylian Mbappe’s PSG progress to the quarter-finals – and the firm are 11/4 about an all-English Champions League final.
