Champions Manchester United 13/8 to add the Champions League

| 15.05.2011

Manchester United are on course for the Premier League and Champions League double after winning the Premier League title at Blackburn.

A 1-1 draw secured a 19th league title and 12th Premier League title for the giants of the English game, but attentions will now be on securing a fourth European Cup.

The greatest team of this generation stand in the way of Manchester United at Wembley in a fortnight and Barcelona are the strong favourites to land the Champions League title at 4/9.

It’s not often Manchester United enter a tie as the underdogs but Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are 13/8 to win the Champions League.

Come May 23, all eyes of the football world will be on Wembley Stadium for European football’s showpiece, and in a year which doesn’t hold a World Cup or European Championships, the Champions League final will be the biggest football betting event of the year.

Should Manchester United win the double, they will be big favourites to land both trophies next season and Ferguson’s side have already been installed as the 6/4 favourites to win the title next season.

Chelsea are 7/4 to land the title next season with Manchester City available at 11/2, Arsenal at 7/1 and Liverpool at 10/1.

Considering the way Manchester City and Liverpool have finished this season strongly, punters could be in for the greatest battle for the title in Premier League history next season, and the betting will be frantic.

The race for the title may be over, but the final weekend of the Premier League season will have a huge bearing on who goes down and there is plenty of value to be found in the relegation betting.

A £10 stake on Manchester United lifting the Champions League trophy would return £26.25. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free bet worth up to £30.
