Barcelona have been replaced at the head of the Champions League betting by Bayern Munich following their shock 2-0 defeat to AC Milan in the first leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday night.

The Catalan giants are out to 9/2 from 15/8 in Sky Bet's outright market while they can now be backed at 11/10 to turn the tie around in the second leg and reach the quarter-finals.

Goals from Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari sealed a famous victory for the Rossoneri, who have moved into 20/1 (from 80/1) to win Europe's premier club competition.

Bayern Munich stormed to a 3-1 victory at Arsenal on Tuesday night and the Bundesliga leaders are now favourites at 11/4 from 4/1.

Other contenders include Real Madrid (9/2), Manchester United (6/1), Borussia Dortmund (15/2) and Serie A champions Juventus (10/1).

Sky Bet football trader Paul Lowery said: "Bayern are now favourites after their comprehensive win at Arsenal, who are now really up against it in the second leg.

"With Barca slipping to a surprise defeat, it has also opened up for the winner of Manchester United v Real Madrid clash."

think you're forgetting that De Gea plays for MU and therefore is the bestest and stats are meaningless unless they show this. Lastly, the understanding of goalkeeping in still the stone ages in England, so I wouldn't pay too much attention the warm secretions that pundits and various hangers-on, have been emitting over De Gea.
