Champions League Betting: Manchester United 10/1 for European glory after heroics in Paris

Manchester United celebrate 2018-19
The Red Devils stunned PSG with a 3-1 win in the French capital and have been cut from 125/1 to win the tournament for the first time since 2008

Manchester United have been cut to 10/1 (11.0) to win the Champions League after their stunning comeback against Paris Saint-Germain.

The Red Devils were 50/1 (51.0) with bet365 even before they lost the first leg 2-0 at Old Trafford and that price was drifted to 125/1 (126.0) following the reverse in Manchester.

However, despite missing a host of players including Paul Pogba, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led his team to the most spirited of performances – with Marcus Rashford securing their quarter-final spot courtesy of a 94th-minute penalty.

PSG joined Real Madrid on the outside looking in after Los Blancos were stunned 4-1 at home to Ajax on Tuesday despite holding a 2-1 lead from the first leg in Amsterdam.

Dusan Tadic turned in a masterclass to lead the Dutch outfit past the reigning champions and Ajax are now 20/1 (21.0) to win the tournament - after being as long as 200/1 (201.0) following the first leg.

Those two heavyweights being knocked out at this relatively early stage means Manchester City are just 5/2 (3.50) to claim a maiden Champions League crown this season.

The Premier League leaders welcome 500/1 (501.0) Schalke to the Etihad Stadium next Tuesday with a 3-2 advantage following Raheem Sterling’s late winner in Germany.

Barcelona are available at 4/1 (5.0), having been shortened from 5/1 (6.0) in recent days thanks to the eliminations of Real Madrid and PSG.

Priced at 8/1 (9.0) are Atletico Madrid, who beat Juventus 2-0 in the first leg of their mouthwatering last 16 clash, with the Serie A champions now 16/1 (17.0).

12/1 (13.0) Tottenham are safely into the quarter-finals after seeing off Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool have the chance to make it four English teams in the last eight ahead of their trip to Bayern Munich.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “It would be a major surprise if 1/150 shots Man City didn’t make the last eight, while Liverpool travel to Munich as slight favourites to qualify, so four English quarter finalists is a real possibility – just like in 2007/8 when Chelsea and Man Utd contested the final in Moscow.”

The Reds are 9/1 (10.0) and Bayern slightly further out at 10/1 (11.0) to win the Champions League, whilst Porto can be backed at 66/1 (67.0) despite overcoming last season’s semi-finalists Roma on Wednesday night.
