|Champions League Winner - Bet365
Bayern Munich have been shortened to 9/2 to win the Champions League after they were handed a trip to Switzerland to face Basel.Barcelona are still firm favourites at 13/8 after they were drawn against Bayer Leverkusen. The defending champions remained the shortest price to reclaim their European crown after they avoided the more fancied teams. Fellow Spaniards, and last season’s semi-finalists, Real Madrid are still second favourites after they were paired with CSKA Moscow.
The English sides were both handed seemingly tough ties against Italian sides. Chelsea will be hosted by Champions League debutants Napoli, who drifted the most, out to 40/1. Arsene Wenger will take his Arsenal side to San Siro to face AC Milan in the first leg of their quarter-final. Chelsea are now 12/1 shots to claim the title while Arsenal, originally 18/1, have drifted to 20/1.
APOEL, the first Cypriot team to make it to this stage of the competition, were the first of the group winners out of the hat as they were drawn against Lyon. The French side were knocked out of this stage last season and are now 80/1 outsiders to win the tournament.
FC Basel are the long-shots to win at 400/1 as they were paired with Bayern, while Bayer Levekusen have been priced at 300/1 after Barcelona were confirmed as their opposition in the last 16.
The first leg of each of tie will be played on Feburary 14/15 or 21/22. The second legs, which will see the seeded teams play at home, are to be played on March 6/7 or 13/14.
