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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
