Manchester City Installed As Champions League Favourites Following Kind Last Sixteen Draw

The draw for the last-sixteen of the Champions League has provided some potentially classic ties and it was Manchester City who were the big winners as they were installed as the bookmakers' favourites to win the competition after drawing Basel...

Champions League Last-Sixteen Draw

English Prospects

The Citizens are now 9/2 outright favourites to win the Champions League for the very first time after Paddy Power reacted to their draw with Basel by slashing their odds. Pep Guardiola will be wary of the fact the Swiss champions beat Manchester United and Benfica en route to finishing runners up in Group A.

United are 14/1 to win the Champions League as they bid to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2014 and they were drawn against Sevilla, who have never gone beyond the round-of-sixteen.

Liverpool also enjoyed a relatively kind draw as they gear up for their first appearance in the knockout stages since 2009 and they are 14/1 (PaddyPower.com) to win the Champions League after drawing Porto.

However, there were tough tests for Chelsea and Tottenham as they drew Barcelona and Juventus respectively.

It is the sixth time that Chelsea and Barcelona have been drawn together and Antonio Conte might well be ruing the fact his team finished second in their group behind Roma. Chelsea drifted out to 25/1 in the outright betting, where five-time champions Barcelona can be backed at 15/2 (Paddy Power bookmakers).

Tottenham might have expected an easier tie after winning their group but they are out to 25/1 ahead of a clash with last season's losing finalists Juventus.

Real Madrid v PSG!

Juventus lost out to Real Madrid in last term's final and the two-time defending champions have been handed an almighty task as they meet Paris Saint-Germain in the last-sixteen. The pair last met in the group stages in 2015, drawing 0-0 in Paris before Real won 1-0 at home, and this is undoubtedly the tie of the round, with Real drifting out to 15/2 and PSG are out to 5/1 after being the bookies' favourites before the draw.

Best Of The Rest

Bayern Munich meet Besiktas and Shakhtar Donetsk come up against Roma in the other last-sixteen ties.
