Blue Moon rising – City new favourites for Champions League

Manchester City’s brilliant form in the Premier League and now favourable draw in the last 16 of the Champions League has seen them become the new favourites to become European champions.

A host of Bookmakers have already shut their books on City winning the Premier League, but now they are clearly of the belief that a Premier League-Champions Leaugue double is on the cards.

City have been handed a clash with Basel, whilst former favourites Paris Saint Germain will have to overcome holders Real Madrid, and it is these two draws that have lead to a major change in the odds.

City are now around 3/1 favourites – the first time that they have ever headed the market for Europe’s top prize – the biggest club competition in the world.

“This market has seen a remarkable turnaround, City began the year at 12/1 – they were not even fancied as the best English side, but now they have come all the way into 3/1 off the back of some major support from the public,” revealed OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“PSG have dropped to around 5/1 and are even behind Bayern Munich in most places, who are 4/1 and have also come in after being drawn against Besiktas.

“After City, and Man United are steady at around 14/1 after drawing Sevilla – but interestingly Liverpool have seen their odds cut after landing Porto.

“But the the other two English sides, Tottenham and Chelsea have drifted somewhat – after they were handed what look like very difficult draws, in the shape of Juventus and Barcelona. Both are now 25/1.”

Man City 3/1
