FOOTBALL BETTING: Arsenal are 4/1 with Betfred to qualify over Barcelona in the Champions League after coming back from 2-0 down to draw the first leg at the Emirates 2-2.
Cesc Fabregas, who is injured and suspended for the second leg, scored a late penalty to give the Gunners hope for the Nou Camp game. Barcelona will be without first choice centre halves Pique and Puyol but the bookies seem to think it’s a bridge too far for Arsenal, Ladbrokes putting 1/6 on the Catalans to qualify and BetDaq making Barca 6/4 (fav) to lift the trophy.
Manchester United and Bayern Munich are finely balanced going back to Old Trafford, Bet365 offer 4/5 on United to progress and Ladbrokes 1/1 about the Germans. Rooney’s away goal could prove crucial but his injury may hamper United’s assault on the cup, Paddy Power have them as 9/2 third favs.
In the all French encounter, Lyon have a commanding 3-1 lead going to Bordeaux. Boylesports have placed 10/1 on Lyon to win outright and 33/1 on Bordeaux.
