Barcelona were out to a best price of 50/1 with Sky Bet to win the Champions League following their 4-0 defeat to Paris St Germain in the Last 16 first leg, but their amazing fightback to win the second leg 6-1 – coupled with Real Madrid being drawn against Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals – means they have been reinstated as favourites.
The subsequent 2-1 league defeat to struggling Deportivo La Coruna indicates that the current Barca side are still some way short of peak powers, but they can certainly turn it on when the occasion demands and they will be fancied to get the better of Juventus in the next round.
They are now a best price of 11/4 to lift the trophy, with Bayern pushed out to 10/3.
Holders Real are available at 11/2, with Atletico Madrid at 6/1 after being drawn to face Leicester. The Foxes, revived since the sacking of Claudio Ranieri, are at 33/1 – in from 100/1 after their first leg defeat to Sevilla.
