Champions League Odds After Quarter-Final Draw
Jurgen Klopp’s side face Porto in the last eight and their odds have shrunk
Liverpool and Juventus are the big movers in the Champions League winners market, going from +550 into +400 and +400 into +235 respectively after the quarter-final draw was made.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds face Porto with a game against Manchester United in the offing should the two side’s progress, while Juventus face Dutch side Ajax.
United face Barcelona in a tough-looking test for Ole Solskjaer, while Man City go up against Spurs in an all-English affair.
Since the draw was made, 44% of bets have gone on Liverpool, with Juventus the next best backed side with 27%.
Man City remain the +250 favourites, with the ‘Old Lady’ now second favourites at +325 best price.
Liverpool are further back at +400 best price to go one better than last year, with United and Spurs available at +1800 and +2500 to go all the way.
Man Utd had a big slump in odds after they drew the Catalans, with the threat of Lionel Messi causing prices to slump from +1200 this morning to +1800.
Nobody can match the drop in price of Porto though, who have seen a freefall from a best price of +7000 to +9500 since drawing Liverpool.
Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: “Liverpool got the team they perhaps would have preferred on paper, but a huge derby against Man United or a battle against Barcelona awaits them if they get past the Portuguese champions. Juventus may be the bet right now, although Ajax could well pull off another big shock.”
