England could rule Europe

March 15th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

A European double looks firmly on the cards this year with the odds on a Premier League club winning both the Champions League and Europa League cut after the quarter-final draws.

There are four English clubs left in the Champions League, with two more in the Europa League’s last eight.

With half the teams in the Champions League, it always looked likely that an all English quarter-final would be drawn, and so it came to pass as Tottenham were paired with Manchester City. The winner of that clash will then face Ajax or Juventus.

And we could also see a Liverpool v Manchester United semi-final, as they were capped apart on the other half of the draw. Liverpool will face Porto, whilst United face Barcelona in what looks the pick of the last eight.

After the draw, an English winner is now into 8/13, whilst an all English final is just 15/8.

City remain the firm favourites to be crowned champions of Europe at 9/4.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “It is somewhat ironic that in the year of Brexit, the English are threatening to dominate European football.

“It is just 8/13 that we see an English winner of the Champions League, that is over 60% probability – which is massive, and at 15/8 it seems likely we might very well have an all English final.

“Manchester City are 9/4 favourites, and there is a similar price for Chelsea to win the Europa League, they are 7/4 and it is 7/2 that we see Chelsea take on Arsenal in the final in that one.

“Whichever way you look, the Bookmakers truly believe that unlike the Prime Minister, we will be seeing some European glory this summer.”
