Zinedine Zidane’s side have been cut to 6/1 (7.0) the outright winner market after securing a 3-1 lead at the Bernabeu against the Ligue 1 champions
Europe’s premier club competition is back underway and there have been a few notable moves in the Champions League outright winner market. None of the matches lived up to the cagey sterotype which can sometimes take over at this stage of the competition, with a total of 17 goals scored across the four games.
The game was finely balanced until two goals from Los Blancos in the final 10 minutes means they will be fancied to progress into the quarter finals and keep their hopes of a third consecutive title alive.
They have an uphill battle on their hands to avoid another early exit from the competition, albeit Unai Emery’s side did secure an away goal.
Liverpool’s eye-catching 5-0 win in Porto saw the Reds cut to 12/1 (from 14/1), just ahead of fellow Premier League side Tottenham, who are 14/1 (15.0) from 251 (26.0) having secured a 2-2 draw against Juventus on Tuesday in Turin.
The Blues undoubtedly have the biggest task on their hands and Antonio Conte is 13/5 (3.60) to lead his side to a win over the Catalan giants at Stamford Bridge while United are just 7/5 (2.40) to secure a first leg lead in Spain.
