FOOTBALL BETTING: Manchester United were immediately pushed out to a generous 9/1 for the Champions League by bet365, after being paired with David Beckham’s AC Milan in the last 16.
Manchester United were immediately pushed out to a generous 9/1 for the Champions League by bet365, after the draw for the knockout stage handed them a double-header against AC Milan, and of course David Beckham. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are nevertheless odds-on at 1/2 with Jaxx.com to qualify at the expense of the Rossoneri.
Also becoming reacquainted with old friends are Chelsea who come face-to-face with former boss Jose Mourinho, and his Inter side. Stan James make the Blues 8/15 to progress from the tie but like United, they also drifted in the outright betting, to 9/2 (Boylesports) after Betfred’s 10/3 favourites Barcelona were given a seemingly straightforward assignment against Stuttgart.
Arsenal are an 8/1 shot at Partybets for Euro glory and are strongly fancied at 2/5 (Ladbrokes) to get the better of Porto in the last 16. Victor Chandler meanwhile, quote 11/8 for the eventual winner to be one of the Premiership trio.
