Champions League draw sees Spanish giants' prices slashed

Barcelona are the 11/8 favourites for the UEFA Champions League with Sky Bet following the quarter-final draw.

Both Barca and Real Madrid had their price to win the trophy cut - to 11/8 and 9/4 respectively - after being handed favourable draws.

Barcelona, who were 13/8, remain the tournament favourites as they're expected to overcome Paris Saint-Germain, with the French side now massive outsiders at 40/1 to win the competition.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, have been slashed from 3/1. They will fancy their chances of knocking out Turkish side Galatasaray, who are the longest odds of any of the remaining teams at 80/1.

Sky Bet offer 5/2 on an 'El Clasico' final.

With three representatives remaining, Spain is thought to be the country most likely to produce a winner of the tournament at 4/11, with Germany 5/2 to beat them to it as Bayern Munich (9/2) and Dortmund (15/2) remain strong contenders. They will meet Juventus and Malaga respectively.

Sky Bet football trader Chris Spicer said: "All the money is going on the market's front two - Barcelona and Real Madrid - but last year's finalists Bayern are great value to reach the last two again at 15/8.

"Their tie with Juventus (16/1) is probably the most appealing spectacle of the round, while Dortmund will be satisfied at being paired up with 40/1 shot Malaga, so keep a close eye on the Germans."

According to Sky Bet's quarter-final 'to qualify' markets, the hardest tie to call is Bayern-Juventus. The Germans are 1/2 to progress (Juve are 6/4), while Dortmund are 2/5 to beat Malaga (7/4).

Real Madrid are the hottest of quarter-final favourites - 1/6 to see off Galatasaray (7/2). Barcelona are 1/5 to beat PSG (100/30).

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
