After pulling off arguably the greatest comeback in the history of European football against Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona now find themselves favourites to go all the way in the Champions League.
Having looked dead and buried at 5-3 down on aggregate going into the 88th minute of the second leg, three goals in the space of seven minutes means they will head into the quarter-finals as 11/4 (3.75) front runners.
However, while the manner of their victory was enthralling for the neutrals, the fact they lost 4-0 in Paris in the first place does not inspire too much confidence in their tag as champions in waiting.
With a difficult tie against a polished Juventus, available at 11/1 (12.00), awaiting them in the next round, Luis Enrique’s mercurial side may be best avoided at that relatively narrow price.
What’s more, with one of fellow heavyweights Bayern Munich at 3/1 (4.00) and Real Madrid at 11/2 (6.50) sure to be absent from the final four as they face off in a high stakes quarter-final, this could be the perfect season for one of the continent’s dark horses.
Runners-up in two of the last three editions, Atletico Madrid look well placed to finally get their hands on the trophy after being drawn against rank 33/1 (34.00) outsiders Leicester City in the next round.
Unlikely to leave themselves exposed to the Foxes’ counter-attacking style due to their own pragmatic approach, Diego Simeone’s outfit certainly look like a strong outside bet at 6/1 (7.00) thanks to their recent pedigree in the competition.
Meanwhile, both Borussia Dortmund at 8/1 (9.00) and 16/1 (17.00) Monaco will be daring to dream of glory as they go head-to-head in an entertaining-looking matchup, although their own defensive vulnerabilities mean neither can be backed with too much confidence in what looks like an exceptionally open competition.
