Manchester United’s chances of winning the Champions League appear to have hit a significant dent if the updated odds are anything to go by.
Starting the day as 14/1 shots to win the competition, their price stretched out as far as 25/1 with Bet365 after they drew Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 before then coming back down to 20/1.
United made tough work of their group featuring Villarreal, Atalanta and Young Boys before qualifying for the knockout stages with a game to spare, having relied heavily on Cristiano Ronaldo in the competition. The 36-year-old has scored six goals in five Champions League matches this season and is responsible for more than half of the team’s goals scored in the group stage.
As for PSG, they also drifted slightly in the aftermath of the draw, going from 6/1 to 9/1 in what some will consider the toughest draw for any of the five favourites that are remaining. Outright favourites Manchester City, who are a 3/1 shot to win it all, are up against Villarreal, while Bayern Munich face an Atletico Madrid team that have been out of sorts this term.
As for Premier League sides Liverpool and Chelsea, their fans will be content with the fact that they have been drawn with Red Bull Salzburg and Lille respectively. Bayern have remained in the same position at 4/1 and are joined by Liverpool, who have come in from 5/1. Chelsea are fourth favourites at 7/1, with their price being moved of late due to their poor form in the Premier League.
Elsewhere, Ajax face Inter Milan in an intriguing draw, while Real Madrid are up against Benfica, who pipped their rivals Barcelona for a place in the next round. Proceedings are rounded off with Sporting Lisbon against Juventus.
