Bayern Munich swept to glory at the Etihad Stadium

Both Manchester United and City are now 16/1 at Sky Bet for the Champions League after Wednesday's action in Europe.

The former were held to a 1-1 draw by Shakhtar Donetsk having taken a 1-0 lead while Manuel Pellegrini's men suffered a 3-1 loss at home to holders Bayern Munich.

The latter are the 3/1 market leaders at Sky Bet to retain the trophy ahead of 9/2 Barcelona and 5/1 Real Madrid.

Real beat FC Copenhagen 4-0 while PSG are 14/1 chances alongside Chelsea following a comfortable victory over Benfica 3-0.

Sky Bet's Sandro Di Michele said: "Things weren't looking good for much of the night with United popular at Shakhtar and most of the best-backed sides going well.

"But late equalisers in the Manchester United and Juventus games saved us. With the results on Tuesday night, we were desperate for a few upsets and the two tonight got us out of jail."

"Bayern were really impressive and deserve to be clear favourites on a night which also saw Real cruise to another comfortable win."

ave to go for Everton myself. Leon Osman looks like everyone's mate down the pub. Leighton Baines can't take himself too seriously with his dodgy haircut. Steven Piennar looks like he'd cry if you were nasty to him. And Tim Howard looks like he'd give you the most perfect man-hug you could ever imagine.
