Barcelona have captured the imagination of the public in recent seasons and are strong favourites to lift the Champions League trophy next month.
They have been aided by a favourable draw that sees Pep Guardiola’s men face a Chelsea side that has struggled for rhythm all season.
The Catalan giants will surely reach the final and be expected to deliver another master-class on club football’s finest stage – becoming the first to successfully defend the European Cup since Arrigo Sacchi’s AC Milan in 1990.
Barcelona can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power.
Athletic Bilbao have been lighting up the Europa League in much the same way as Barca have been entertaining the masses in Europe’s premier club competition.
A comprehensive dismantling of Manchester United in the last 16 was followed by an engrossing battle with Schalke in the quarter-finals and Marcelo Bielsa’s intriguing side are now favourites to win the Europa League trophy in Bucharest.
Athletic are available at 13/8 (2.63), while the crowd-pleasing Catalan/Basque double of wins for Barcelona and Bilbao is a 15/4 (4.75) shot with Paddy Power.
Alternatively, how about the prospect of Madrid claiming both of European club football’s prizes this season?
Real Madrid have a tough assignment against Bayern Munich in their Champions League semi-final later this month, but in Jose Mourinho they have a coach who knows how to win the biggest prizes.
Real are 5/2 (3.5) to lift the European Cup for a 10th time.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid won the Europa League as recently as 2010 and have made light of their up-and-down league form to mount another serious tilt at the trophy this season.
Atletico Madrid are 12/5 (3.4) to win the competition and the Madrid double is available at 11/1 (12.0) with Paddy Power.
Barcelona & Athletic Bilbao to win a Champions League / Europa League double at 15/4 (4.75)
