Alvaro Negredo scored a hat-trick in Man City's victory

Manchester City have been cut to 14/1 with Sky Bet to win Champions League after they booked their place in the knockout stages following Tuesday night's 5-2 victory over CSKA Moscow.

Alvaro Negredo grabbed a hat-trick and Sergio Aguero struck twice in an easy triumph which secured qualification for the first time with two games to spare.

Sky Bet also make Manuel Pellegrini's side 15/2 to reach the final and 12/5 to go furthest out of the other British teams in the competition.

Manchester United edged a little closer to the last 16 following a goalless draw at Real Sociedad in which Robin van Persie missed a penalty and Marouane Fellaini was sent off.

David Moyes' men are top of Group A and three points clear of third-placed Shakhtar Donetsk but their odds to lift the trophy have drifted out to 16/1.

The 11/4 tournament favourites remain Bayern Munich, who also sealed their progress from City's group following a 1-0 victory in Plzen, while Barcelona and Real Madrid are next in the running at 9/2 and 5/1 respectively.

Chelsea are Arsenal are both in action on Wednesday night and can be backed at 14/1 and 20/1 to go all the way in Europe's premier competition this season.

    e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

    arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

    e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
