The Champions League betting has been shaken up by Barca’s emphatic first leg defeat to PSG, with the 5-times champions now out to 50/1 with Sky Bet to lift the trophy having been market leaders prior to the knock-out stage.
If anyone can overcome a 4-0 deficit it is a team featuring Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar – but they are now 11/1 to qualify for the next round at Unibet and after their mauling in Paris, on top of their 3-1 defeat to Man City in Group C, you have to ask whether they are now in decline.
Bayern Munich, who inflicted yet another 5-1 defeat on Arsenal in Bavaria, are the new favourites at 11/4, with Real Madrid in to 4/1 – after beating Napoli 3-1 in their first leg at the Bernabeu. It promises to be a tricky return leg in Naples, but a 2-goal cushion should be enough.
Atletico Madrid and Juventus are now at 9/1 with City at 11s and all three return to action this week, as do Sevilla, who have been trimmed from 33/1 to 25s ahead of their first leg at home to Leicester – who have little hope based upon domestic form.
