As the Quarter Final draw for this season’s Champions League is made, it is still a tough decision to pick a winner from the eight remaining teams. With teams representing the English, Spanish, German and French Leagues still in with a chance, who are the bookmakers fancying after seeing the draw?
Holders Bayern Munich are now the bookies favourites at 7/4, after they were drawn against current Premier League champions Manchester United. Munich comfortably came through against Arsenal in the last round and look a good shout to defend the crown they won last year. United have suffered a nightmare season under new manager David Moyes, and at 28/1 to win the competition, the bookmakers are saying there are as good as out. Real Madrid are also in with a great shout of winning the trophy in May at 100/30 and were looked upon favourably with a tie against Borussia Dortmund in the last eight. With Ronaldo in such fine form, it is hard to look past them for the win, but Dortmund gave Madrid a battering in last season’s semi-final, so never say never. Other teams to look out for are Barcelona (7/2) who are pitted against La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid (33/1). But the closest tie sees Jose Mourniho’s Chelsea up against Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s PSG, both placed at 11/1.
