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 remained 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 while Arsene Wenger will take his Arsenal side to the 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.
Bet365  spokesman Steve Freeth said, "England have been handed a decent draw and we have cut their odds from 11/1 pre-draw to 7/1." 
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 longshots to win at 400/1 as they were paired with Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich, now 9/2 to claim their fifth European title.
The first leg of each of tie will be played on the 14/15th or 21/22nd February 2012. The second legs which will see the seeded teams play at home are to be played on 6/7th or 13/14th March 2012.
Bayern Munich have been shortened to 9/2 to win the Champions League after they were handed a trip to Switzerland to face Basel.
