Barcelona new Champions League favs following epic comeback
Barcelona are the new favourites to win this season’s Champions League after completing arguably the greatest comeback in football history.
Trailing Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 at the start of their last-16 second leg encounter, Luis Enrique’s side hammered the Ligue 1 outfit 6-1 at the Nou Camp to win through 6-5 on aggregate.
Sergi Roberto’s dramatic stoppage-time goal sealed Barca’s passage to the quarter-finals for the 10th year running and in doing so put his side on course to land a sixth European Cup success.
Our odds-compilers are certainly taking no chances, having slashed the Catalan club’s odds from 40/1 to 11/4 overnight.
Bayern Munich aren’t far behind at 3/1 while Barca’s arch-rivals and the defending champions, Real Madrid, are priced at 9/2.
And the current odds suggest that this season’s Champions League assault could well be between those three clubs with Juventus next best at 7s with Borussia Dortmund rated 9/1 shots.
Premier League outfits Manchester City and Leicester City both still have work to do in the last-16 and our traders make them 10/1 and 80/1 respectively.
