Manchester City new Champions League favs after monster draw
The Champions League draw for the Last-16 of this year’s competition has provided some absolutely huge fixtures to look forward to.
Chelsea meet Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur clash with Juventus. Paris Saint-Germain will face the might of Real Madrid.
Manchester City have been made new 11/4 favourites to win this year’s competition after drawing Swiss side, Basel.
Pep Guardiola’s team should really breeze past the Swiss Super League champions into the next round.
Their city rivals Manchester United face a slightly more difficult task against La Liga outfit Sevilla.
However, Jose Mourinho has a fantastic record against the Andalusia side throughout his career. He was won seven from eight games, losing just once.
Chelsea have arguably the most difficult encounter having to face Barca over two legs. However, Messi and co. are arguably not the side they once were in recent years despite their La Liga dominance this term.
Liverpool have been paired with Portuguese giants Porto. The Anfield club have never lost to Dragoes, winning twice and drawing twice.
All five Premier League sides will fancy their chances of making it through to the Quarter-Finals.
